A 9-year-old was robbed of $50 while selling Girl Scout cookies near downtown Philadelphia Saturday afternoon, WPVI-TV reported. What started in 1917 as a bake sale has grown into the largest girl-led entrepreneurial business in the country. Girl Scout cookies actually slightly differ by region because they are prepared by a few different bakers, but here in L.A., the 2017 S'mores cookie features creamy chocolate and marshmallow filling buttressed by crunchy graham cracker cookies on either side. "The girls colored Troop-to-Troop bags to send cookies to overseas military units, made cookie bookmarkers with their goals, played cookie games and learned cookie safety when selling to the public", Nell Toomer said.
The Girl Scout troops will also have the chance to exhibit their creativity when they decorate their respective cookie booths to gain extra customer attention and win troop prizes. Cookies are $5 per box.
The Hornets' Nest Council is teaming up with SouthPark Mall to offer cookie sales to shoppers. The best-selling Thin Mints are made with pure peppermint oil.
