Best door-to-door sale ever!

Submitted by Kristin Coulter

Troop 3573 Cadette Girl Scout Fiona Goe had a huge surprise while selling cookies February 1st. After a morning of mediocre door-to-door sales in her Park Hill neighborhood, she head out again after lunch hoping her luck would turn. She saw a customer shoveling snow in front of her house. This customer had purchased 6-8 boxes from her last year so Fiona was hopeful she would order again.

Boy did Fiona get a big order! She sold 3 cases to her customer and 7.5 cases to her father for a total of 10.5 cases of cookies!! It turned out that the woman’s father was recuperating from an illness at her house and was now well enough to go home. He normally buys Harry and David gifts for his business customers for the holidays. However since he was ill he did buy the gifts. He thought he would buy Girl Scout cookies instead. His 14 year old grandson Kilauea Tora, was so excited that he took some of the cookies out of the cases and surrounded himself with them.

    Why can u not make cookies with out gmo’s. They need to be healthy, no salt, organic products only, just healthy and good! Help our over weight citizens who really want to eat well, but you keep giving them crap.

      Hi Shannon.
      Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Please know that we have heard them and have shared them with our cookie bakery who makes these decisions. They study consumer trends to develop the offerings. Girl Scouts very much advocates for a healthy lifestyle and know the treats we offer should be eaten in moderation. We also have a great program where consumers can purchase cookies for Hometown Heroes (such as the military) instead of themselves. We appreciate your support of Girl Scouting and thank you for voicing your concern!
