Greetings Infomaniacs,

Alright, it is definitely Girl Scout cookie season! I have been hit up by my goddaughter, my niece, and co-workers to buy these dangerously addictive cookies.

Because I can't say no to any of them, I will now have more cookies in my cabinet than I can possibly eat.

Enjoy!

RANDOM TIDBITS

Girl Scout cookies can have a different name based on what bakery they come from? Samoas might be called Caramel deLites and Trefoils called shortbread. Each council chooses a baker, either ABC Bakers or Little Brownie Bakers. The baker will each produce a similar cookie, but the name and recipe are slightly different.

***

According to the Girl Scouts website, Girl Scout cookies made their first appearance in 1917. At the time, a troop in Oklahoma baked the cookies and sold them in a high school cafeteria as a service project.

***

Cookies were baked and sold commercially in the 1930s.

***

The revenue from cookie sales stays within the Girl Scout councils. The national Girl Scout organization, Girl Scouts of the USA, gets a royalty from the licensed baker in exchange for the use of the Girl Scouts trademarks. No other revenue from the cookie sales goes to the national organization.

***

The cookie program is meant to encourage girls to learn five important skills - goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.

***

These days customers can find their favorite cookies by searching for a seller through a mobile app or ordering online from a Girl Scout they know.
