This is obviously one business that has not been affected by our current economy.

That is one of the downsides to working at home instead of an office - no direct access to half a dozen Girl Scout parents taking orders in the office.

We have been selling them here in Texas for over two weeks now. And here, there is no pre-ordering like we did years ago when I was a Girl Scout. They have also switched back to the old names. I think there was too much confusion with the 1st name change. There is also a low fat cookie, that comes in small bags inside the box. They are called Daisy Go Rounds and are small cinnamon flowers! Just not as good as the old favorites!!!

Haven't read the whole post yet, but cookie pickup in Union County (maybe Meck is same) is Feb 12, then the next 2 weekends cookie sales will be outside Walmarts, BiLos, Harris Teeters.....I think some Home Depots allow sales.

I asked my neighbor that question yesterday. They are the exact same cookie, but the names are different because they use 2 different bakeries to make them & they service different areas. So, depending on which part of the country you live in determines the name of the cookie. I think she said that Keebler is one of the bakeries, don't know who the other is.

No, not Keebler. Girl Scout cookies are baked and distributed by two bakeries. On the West Coast - ABC/Interbake Foods, and on the East Coast -Little Brownie Bakers. That's why occasionally someone from the opposite baker's territory will call the cookies by a different name. See this link for more info:

I am a former Girl Scout leader, but my daughter is still an active Girl Scout. Her troop is raising funds for a trip to D.C. this summer. Thanks to all who support the good work of the Girl Scouts!

Sort of the same effect that the big McDonalds golden arch against a bright red background has- every person 2 yrs and up has some sort of Pavollian response to it

My Samoas should be here in a week or so...I doubt the one box I bought will last through the evening (and I purposely only bought one box...)

Oh, Miker...no one can eat just ONE (box) Stock up while they are available, because after February, cookies will be scarce until this time next year.

Yes it was a struggle to write just one box on the form. I wanted at least two, one to plow through immediately and then the other as a sweet surprise during the week....(hey, oh yeah, there's girl scout cookies).

But it's not as bad as the chicken wrapped in pork, wrapped in bacon appetizer I heard is being served at some super bowl parties
