Look what I found when returning to school this morning. Yes, it is that time of year again. Girl Scout cookie order season! Our SSES parents have been busy sorting out the order for our school’s troupe and are using my back room for storage.
I always have great admiration for our girls who sell Girl Scout cookies. It brings back recollections of my youth, selling Girl Guide cookies ( in Canada we use the term Girl Guides in lieu of Girl Scouts) by taking orders in the Fall months, then distributing them in March. I have vivid memories of schlepping through snow banks with a brown card board box with handles that always seemed to disintegrated after the first two blocks in my neighborhood, distributing the cookies and collecting promised money.
In Canada, back then, we only sold vanilla and chocolate wafer cookies with a similar flavor icing filling. The cookie had the trefoil embossed on the top of each. We did not have the wide selection of flavors which exist today. Which are your favorite flavors?
Mrs. Potwin promises not to nibble. Or even open……..maybe…….
