Girl Scout cookies. They’re little. They’re delicious. They’re going up in price…but we will definitely still pay it though. It’s their limited availability that makes them so desirable. They come around for a few weeks every year and you have to stock up and freeze them for the hard, cookie-less months to come. We all have our favorite cookie, the specific colored box we keep a careful eye out for when passing the tables as we walk into grocery stores. Or maybe you are lucky and have an inside source, you get your cookies from the greatest salesmen (women!) themselves.

Girl Scout cookies were originally home baked, the troops would sell them in cafeterias and as service projects. Eventually Girl Scout councils began overseeing production and the cookies became commercialized. In the 1950’s the cookie staples became established: vanilla-based filled cookie, a chocolate-based filled one, shortbread and a chocolate mint.

Trefoils were the first cookie, followed by Samoas and then Thin Mints. Do-sid-o’s were next and between then and now, we’ve seen dozens of cookie varieties. Some that hang out for a while and others that are a one-year thing.
