Girl Scout Cookie Cutbacks

The Girl Scouts are cutting back on the different types of cookies they’re selling. Right now they have 11 varieties; but this year, some troops are only selling SIX as a test. If the test works, they’ll officially cut down to six flavors next year.

By cutting flavors, they can save money on production, and also help the Girl Scouts focus their sales efforts. So which six are going to survive? Basically, it’s the classics.

#1.) Thin Mints

#2.) Do-Si-Dos, which are the two oatmeal cookies with peanut butter in between.

#3.) Trefoils, which are the shortbread cookies.

#4.) Samoas, also known as Caramel deLites, the vanilla cookies covered in caramel and sprinkled with coconut.

#5.) Lemon Chalet Cremes, the cinnamon cookies with lemon filling.

#6.) Tagalongs/Peanut Butter Patties, the vanilla cookies layered with peanut butter and covered in chocolate.

The flavors getting cut are Thanks-A-Lot, sugar-free chocolate chip cookies, Dulce De Leche, Lemonades, and Thank U Berry Munch.

Thin Mints are the biggest seller, and account for about 25% of all sales. Samoas are next, at 19% . . . then Tagalongs at 13% . . . Do-Si-Dos at 11% . . . and Trefoils at 9%. All of the others add up to about 23%.

Girl Scout Cookies bring in more than $714 MILLION every year, and usually make up at least two-thirds of every local Girl Scout council’s budget.

Do you know if the Girl Scouts of Amarillo are only selling six types of cookies? And while we’re talking about cookies. What’s your favorite Girl Scout cookie? Personally, I’m a Samoas kinda guy.
