Thin mints have been debated as the best Girl Scout cookie for ages, but when they go on sale Jan. 18, Raiders can make their own choice about which cookie is their favorite. Because this is the 100th year and centennial celebration for the very popular fundraiser, many people are more excited than usual about their 2017 arrival.
“My favorite Girl Scout cookie is the Thin Mints,” junior Cherokee Ford said. “I love, love, love them. I honestly wish the Girl Scouts sold them year round.”
Ford loves Thin Mints so much, she buys about 5 boxes each year. Junior Kendall White also enjoys the same cookies.
“My favorites are Thin Mints and Samoas,” White said. “I normally buy two boxes of Samoas and one box of Thin Mints.”
Even longterm Girl Scouts love the cookies they sell annually. Ten-year scout veteran Kristen Jones looks forward to selling and eating the cookies each year.
“Although the recipes continue to change, I love Thin Mints and Caramel Delights the best,” Jones said. “It’s always interesting to see which cookie is each person’s favorite.”
Recipes are not the only changing piece to the Girl Scout cookie puzzle. The number of cookies in each box and the prices also fluctuates.
“The number of cookies each person gets should definitely be changed,” junior Katy Childers said. “The more you get, the lower the price.”
This year, the scouts are releasing a news cookie to sell called S’mores. They will also have the traditional favorites including Thin Mints, Lemonades, Shortbread, Caramel deLites, Peanut Butter Sandwich and Peanut Butter Patty cookies.
Anyone who is having trouble finding cookies can make it easier by using one of several techniques. FIrst, you can contact one of the Rouse HS Girl Scouts, and there are several who will be selling the cookies as one of their projects.
If you can’t find a Girl Scout member, you can locate a cookie booth near here by going to www.girlscouts.org and entering your zip code in the Find Cookies tool. This will give you dates and locations for Girl Scout Cookie sales in our area.
And if those two ideas don’t work, you can also buy cookies online from a Girl Scout member you know. All you have to do is tell the Girl Scout you are interested in becoming a Digital Cookie customer, and she will invite you to visit her personalized cookie website. There, you can place an order, pay using Visa Checkout or credit cards, have your order shipped or delivered by a Girl Scout, or donate several boxes of cookies to a charity.
