10. Girl Scout cookie ingredients: Then versus now

http://www.examiner.com/article/girl-scout-cookie-ingredients-then-versus-now

For an idea of how much things have changed over the years, here is a list of ingredients from the first Girl Scout cookies of the 1920's and 1930's:

Flour, butter, sugar, eggs, milk, real vanilla, salt, baking powder (generally this was sodium bicarbonate and corn starch)

Here is a list of ingredients from modern shortbread cookies (the cookies that have the least amounts of chemicals, food coloring and other unnatural ingredients of modern Girl Scout cookies):

Enriched flour, sugar, palm oil, whey, corn syrup, sodium bicarbonate, sodium acid pyrophosphate, natural and artificial flavor, corn starch, salt, soy lecithin

Note the complete lack of ingredients like milk, eggs and butter in the modern recipe.
