It's Girl Scout cookie month!  After Christmas and Thanksgiving, it could possibly be the most anticipated time of Winter.  At least at my house. This is the biggest fundraiser for the troops each year and typically accounts for 60% of the annual revenue which is used for activities, trips, supplies, etc. Equally important, it’s the one chance during the year where girls get to put on their entrepreneur hat, set up their own cookie business and strategize on how to network and maximize sales.

I'm not gonna lie.  I love me some Thin Mints.  In fact, I usually buy an entire case that I can keep in the freezer in my garage so I can have some later in the year, like March.

I know that I am not the only one in love with Girl Scout cookies. And I am comforted by the fact that buying these delicious treats I am helping these scouts in 5 different ways.

And did you know that Girl Scout Cookies are SO much more than just delicious treats? Every time you buy a box, you help girls learn five essential skills—goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics—all while helping them better themselves and their communities. How cool is that? They learn, earn, and have tons of fun—and they couldn't do it without you!

This year’s theme is ‘Create Moments of Joy’ and we believe this cookie season can bring much needed joy to all of our lives. So what about you?  What is your favorite Girl Scout cookie?  Take out quick poll!
