Today is National Girl Scout Cookie Day! I love Girl Scout Cookies and I know you do, too.
I was a Girl Scout back in the day. But I wasn’t a real Girl Scout. I was a troop hopper and was known for having the shortest Girl Scout uniform in school. But today’s Girl Scouts are quite an impressive group.
Back in 2009 when I was kicking off BartlesvilleLive.com (now defunct) for KJRH, I covered the end of year awards program for the Bartlesville Girl Scouts. I was SO impressed with how Girl Scouting had changed since I was young.
Girl Scouts today are taught about financial responsibility and managing money. That is what the cookie sales are really all about even though I’m fairly sure the Samoa was made just for me.
This year, the Girl Scouts have made it easy for you to find their cookies if they don’t find you. They have a cookie finder app for iPhone!
This app is worth it just for the cute video at the beginning. It got me all choked up. And please tell me that the skills these girls are talking about are not important to the girls of today. Even the girls of yesterday.
So download the app, locate yourself some cookies and celebrate National Girl Scout Cookie Day with me.
These will go into the freezer.
Have you ever eaten them frozen?
