Do you buy Girlscout Cookies?

I buy girlscout cookies but I have notice that they are getting very expensive. When I was young and sold them they were $1.00 a box now they are $3.50. It really is not the price of the box that worries me it is the profit for the girl that is doing the selling. The girl that is selling her heart out is only making 75 cents a box. I was getting 50 cents a box way back when. Do you think this is far for the little girl that is selling the cookies? Hugs

I think the cookies cost even more now (around 4$) I was shocked when she told me how much they were. I think it is time the girl guides think of new ways of fundraising. Perhaps bagging at a grocery store or something. Besides, most of the time the cookies are either sold to the person's family or the parents try to sell them at work.

Here they are $4.00 a box. I always buy Girl Guide Cookies. I prefer the mint cookies, which I will gobble down in a day. Since I am trying to stay off real sugar cookies permanently, I would normally not buy them or eat them but I can't resist the Girl Guide Cookies. I will buy cookies at the store for the kids but not eat them. But if we bake homemade cookies I can't resist. Normally I eat no sugar added cookies and that is enough for me. But I don't know what it is about GG cookies that I can't resist, no matter what the cost.

I buy them when I can find someone selling them. I didn't know that was all they got from it. I think it should be more I mean the price went up didn't it.

Yeah, I buy thin mints. Doesnt the profit go towards funding the troop?

A percentage goes to the troupe, a percentage to the local council and the rest goes into buying the cookies. Each council determines it's prices based on what the market will support in the area (just like any other business). I think that it's a fair money raising program.
