Here's some fun facts about everyone's favorite cookies:
2. The ingredients for a Girl Scout cookie were very simple in 1922: Butter, sugar, eggs, milk, vanilla, flour, salt, and baking powder. Very different from today's brand new creation: Mango Crmes with Nutrifusion, which include a food concentrate made with shitake mushrooms.
3. In 1933, you could get a box of 44 cookies for just 23 cents.
4. Due to shortages of sugar, butter, and flour in the early 1940s, there were no Girl Scout cookies. The Scouts sold calendars instead.
6. Two licensed bakeries are in charge of making all Girl Scout cookies: ABC Bakers and Little Brownie Bakers.
7. Some cookies have alternate names in different locations. Tagalongs are also known as Peanut Butter Patties; Do-si-dos are sometimes called Peanut Butter Sandwiches; and Trefoils are also called Shortbreads.
8. You can download a Cookie Finder app on your iPhone or Android to find exactly where the Girl Scouts are selling in your area.
