Girl Scout Cookie Scandal

Okay, it’s not really a scandal (at least not yet), but I wanted something catchy.

Ever the helpful neighbors, we bought a box of Girl Scout Cookies the other day. Actually, we bought ’em a few weeks ago, but they were delivered the other day. Cost? $3.50. Pretty pricey for a box of cookies, thought I. Then I opened them.

There were 15 – fifteen! – cookies in the box. The entire box. That works out to more than $0.23 per cookie. Now it’s not an issue of donating to the group. Had they simply asked for a donation, we’d probably give them one. But what a rip-off. Fifteen reasonable-quality cookies, for $0.23 each?

We bought a box of the new Girl Guide cookies, they were $4. And what a tiny box, omg there isn’t much value or taste to these cookies. We opened themm and they were not even close to fresh, likely a year old. Oh well, the next time they come ot our door, we won’t be answering. Hey Girl Guides, are you listening? (Not likely…)
