Girl Scout's that time of the year!

It's March...that time of the year when all the Girl Scout cookies you ordered are being delivered. How can anyone say NO to a Girl Scout when asked to purchase cookies? We all have our favorites... I try to NOT order my favorites, just so they are not in the house. Mention a "thin mint" and everyone knows what you are talking about... have you ever kept a box of Girl Scout thin mint cookies in the freezer? So delicious! They seem to be delivered at the worst time though...spring is around the corner and everyone seems very conscious about their diet - and then your door bell rings and your cookies are being delivered. Sadly though, with everyone aware of horrifying stories, Girl Scouts no longer seem to be ringing your doorbell to purchase cookies! Between my husband and myself from friends who call or people we work with, we always seem to have an abundance of these tempting little sweets around the house - all to be re-disbursed to someone else, now our son who's at college and these are "perfect" dorm treats!
Girl Scout cookies started in 1917, at that time they cost .23 cents a box or 6 boxes for $1.24! Oh well, they are not the only thing that have increased in price! Girl Scout Cookies are an icon of American culture and the backbone of the Girl Scouts, all of the proceeds support Girl Scouts of America in your community. How can anyone say no to that?
