I bought 2 boxes as well. But that's my limit (Tagalongs and Somoas).

Dollar General sells the same cookies only with the names slightly changed. Thin Mints become Mint Thins, same exact cookies but for $1.85 a box.

My boxes aren't part of the recall batches. And I assure you that the taste and smell was top quality.

They just set up a table in front of my local grocery store. I got so excited about the cookies and making that cute little girl happy that I forgot a few things I was supposed to buy.

Like toilet paper.

I'd rather give double the money to the Girl Scouts. Heck, I wouldn't even consider buying them except for the fact that it's a cute little girl with a big smile selling them.

I hope you made it back for the TP soon enough, lol. As a teacher, Liz has lots of little girls selling to her and I several of my managers kids sell them, so we end up with a pile every year. I'm not a big sweets eater, so they sit in the cubard, but is great to see the little smiles.

Except that the vast majority of the time it's the parents selling the damn things & not the kids.

So far it is not the girl Scouts, it's local Bobby Soxers. I have three Grand daughters playing this year. I just purchased a 100 raffle tickets, and 6 cases of those chocolate/almond bars. On top of all that, I have been urged to donate time as a chef cooking hot dogs, and hamburgers, one weekend a month. Heaven help me if they are short a coach. All for the good of our local Kid's Fast Pitch Soft Ball league. Of course I would not want it any other way:D

I never, repeat NEVER buy from parents selling anything for their kids. My parents never took anything I was selling to work to sell. I had to sell everything on my own. They would go with me, drive me around, but I had to do the selling.

Same here, walking door to door selling lame crap like candles & over priced pizzas. I refuse to buy anything from the people at work, at least make the kids put forth some effort.

We have had 6 boxes show up so far and still have more coming. Sucks when half of the girls in the neighborhood are girl scouts.

No kidding about that! Two nieces, girl in my kids' school carpool, two neighbors, and more! But I put my foot down at 30 boxes total! (and a heavy foot it is. Now.)

Dang. Now I know where all my golfing money goes...
