    I know! There are very few that make it permanentlly, but Thin Mints, Trefoils (shortbread), and Tagalongs were ones I sold as a Girl Scout several decades ago.
    Count your blessings!

    I wonder why they don't do that in our area? No stands, and no real variety. The last time I bought them, I didn't have a choice, all they were selling were the mint ones. I'll have to pay special attention next time, and ask why don't they set up stands in various malls etc. I think that is just a simply wonderful idea.

    The only way I can buy them, is if someone is selling them for their daughter or relative. I don't even remember the last time they came to my door.

    I think your Tagalong = my peanut butter pattie. Also to caramel delites (your somoas) have been around for as long as I can remember.

    They stopped letting the GS go door to door here for safety reasons . They let them set up tables in front of all the grocery and discount stores.

    Do they only accept cash for the purchases? That seems dangerous and short-sighted to me. Just saw a story on the news where one setup was robbed for their cookie money. Some good samaritans, a man and his wife, came along and gave the girls enough cash to cover what they had lost, but taking in only cash just seems stupid.

    There are adults ( both moms and dads) helping to take money at the stands I have seen.

    There were adults there. This economy makes cash dangerous.

    Well, I remember them being introduced for the first time when I was a GS leader about 20 years ago. But maybe they were around other places before that. They don't have the same cookies everywhere.
