Thinner Mints: Girl Scouts have
millions of unsold cookies

Original Article

Posted By: voxpopuli, 6/14/2021 9:34:02 PM

The Girl Scouts have an unusual problem this year: 15 million boxes of unsold cookies. The 109-year-old organization says the coronavirus — not thinner demand for Thin Mints — is the main culprit. As the pandemic wore into the spring selling season, many troops nixed their traditional cookie booths for safety reasons. "This is unfortunate, but given this is a girl-driven program and the majority of cookies are sold in-person, it was to be expected," said Kelly Parisi, a spokeswoman for Girl Scouts of the USA.

Comments:

hmmm... wonder if it has to do with MILLIONS of previous BUYERS tired of supporting the deviants now in charge..

You can buy the same non-woke cookies at Wal-Mart for 1/4 of the price. No Pride included.

The boxes get smaller and the price gets bigger. GSA only gets 1/4 of revenue. Local scouts get about 2/3 of the 1/4th. Just like the BSA, cookie sells enriches the senior managers and cookie bakers. The bakers over charge, then spreads the wealth via "free" GSA advertising, and national "donations". The result is the bakers make no profit on paper. If you want to support your local scouts, just give them $5. They will be better off.

I was also a cookie-selling girl scout, back when the cookies were $1 a box and much bigger. I usually sold around a hundred or so boxes walking around our neighborhood and knocking on doors. These days,, if i want "Girl Scout" cookies, I head to Dollar General where they sell identical versions for $1.50.

15 million boxes at $5 a box - that's quite a bit of inventory with an expiring shelf life. Do the right thing. Instead of asking us to buy a box of Thin Mints for the troops, give all of the remaining boxes to our deployed military.

Given their unbreakable ties to Planned Parenthood, we stopped buying their cookies years ago. Both the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts are shells of what they once were. When they both surrendered to the lie-beral hate-filled bullies, they lost our support!!!

It's a girl driven program huh. So what is the boy scouts program going to be called? The boy scouts sell popcorn, and since girls are allowed in the boy scouts now, that can't be called a boy driven program anymore. Not that it ever was ever referred to as that.

FTA: Around 1.7 million girls were enrolled in Girl Scouts in 2019, down almost 30% from 2009. As a former Scout this makes me a bit sad. I loved being a Girl Scout however, I realize that the organization I loved disappeared decades ago. There were no politics in Scouts in the old days, just friendship and fun.

The new guidelines discard the 14-day limit on human embryo experiments in favor of no limits whatsoever, and they allow virtually unrestricted manufacture of human-animal chimeras of any type, as well as creation of genetically altered human embryos and lab constructed human embryo “models.” Very little is left in the category of “currently not permitted.”
