It’s Girl Scout cookie time. Look for cookie booths set up in front of local businesses in the Beaufort area over the next several weekends. Girl Scout cookies are an absolute icon of American culture and have been around for nearly one hundred years. Now, we’re getting read to start finding them..
Local Brownie and Girl Scout Troops will be out in force starting Saturday, February 25th in Beaufort. Here’s the schedule so you can be sure to go and grab yours while your out and about doing your shopping:
We buy these things up like crazy. Since 1999, young ladies and their mothers (and yes, lots of dads) have sold over $800 million in cookies. Of the millions of boxes sold every year, the most current breakdown of sales showing the popularity of each delicious variety looks like this:
2. Samoas (Caramel deLites)
3. Tagalongs (Peanut Butter Patties)
4. Do-si-dos (Peanut Butter Sandwiches)
5. Trefoils (Shortbread)
6. Other Varieties
And some of us just love them all.
If you’re out and about over the next few weeks…support your local Beaufort Girl Scout. Buy a few extra, they even freeze well.
