    I used to buy a few boxes a year, but now that they’ve teamed up with the baby-killing factory Planned (non)Parenthood, I will not buy a single cookie.
    Sorry girls, blame your liberal leaders.

    Do girl scout cookies actually contain sugar, or do they instead contain high fructose corn syrup? They might be decent tasting cookies, but they contain the same low grade industrialized ingredients as most other mass produced cookies. That is the major reason I haven’t bought them in several years.

    I don’t care what anyone says. I rather support the young girls who are growing up into strong women. Two boxes of Thin Mints, please

    Just because some nitwits are afraid of strong, confident GIRLS — not even women — is no reason to quit supporting the Girl Scouts.
    Most of what is being said about them negatively is simply wrong.

    There is something about using the Girls Scouts in political arguments that just feels wrong.

    Hmmm, thanks for the idea CC. I usually buy a box or two. This year, I’ll squeeze the allowance I give myself, out of my hard earned paycheck, to buy at least 3 more boxes of Girl Scout cookies, perhaps 4. King Soopers usually lets them set up a table in front. They can be stored in the freezer for longer periods of time.

    This reminds me of the Chik Filet (sp?) drama. When one of the bigwigs over there made some comment about homosexuals, everyone on the left went nuts. I recall reading a lot of comments about how the chicken there is awful, etc. And then of course the right overreacted in kind.
    I remember that the business for Chik Filet around here actually increased for quite some time as righties showed solidarity.

    Now we have the mirror image. The righties are all upset by some head honchos comment. The lefties are reacting. Bet sales of Girl Scout Cookies go up.

    I’m figuring somebody in the Girl Scout’s marketing department dreamed all this up. Now we’ll start seeing companies ‘market by outrage’. The CEO of Pepsi will make a rude comment about the NRA. Or maybe Tony the Tiger will come out against lesbians. Whatever. if you let the media make your spending and political decisions for you, you deserve what you get.

    “Classic Coke” almost fits this theory.
    Go SodaStream.

    Oh please. Children have their basic personality formed and their little minds shaped by their parents before the school system/clubs/organizations get them.

    Well, if you bother to interact with them at all.

    They’re like little ducks. The “imprint” what YOU DO. From language to social interaction.

    Scouting is a positive influence. Fund raising is a part of life that will benefit them forever. You know, teaching them to work for profit. Very capitalistic and all.

    Even YOUR opinion and the result of turning them away at the door is a life lesson well learned.

    ME? I got one of each. Fat man that I am…..

    I will buy cases in order for young women to be educated and able to properly care for themselves with affordable cancer screenings and birth control ( to prevent pregnancy in the first place).

    Samoas for the win.

    Ah yes, chik-fil-a, corporate sponsorship of hatred, on-going, every day but Sunday, ‘acuz they’re closed. I tried it twice, before becoming aware they are truly homophobic, and actively spend money to suppress equal rights. I did not like their chicken sandwiches. Easy boycott, regardless of their homophobia.

    It doesn’t feel wrong, it is wrong.
    I’m buying extra boxes this year. If it annoy’s any of the loud mouth “people” using the girl scouts as a punching bag then it should make those cookies extra tasty.

    I stopped buying several years ago when the number of cookies shrank to the point it seemed like the lesson they were trying to teach was how to rip customers off. Especially since the money doesn’t go to help the girls, it’s mostly confiscated by the national council. I donate directly to local.

    Thin Mints are basically crispy chocolate wafers with some mint extract added to the chocolate coating. I occasionally make my own dairy free version.
