10. Back when I was a kid, I sold Girl Scout cookies. 25 cents a box.

Sold hundreds of boxes(delivery was a pain!). Through the years, the cookies have changed and people I know have commented on this fact. Especially the 'cookie mints'. Update to now, the cookies are very expensive. I know the proceeds go to a good cause but with so many people under financial strain, I understand why there are so many boxes in storage.

Perhaps the G.S. organization should downsize the number of offerings and revert back to the days when these cookies were great and the price was reasonable.

Perhaps the managers of the warehouses holding the surplus should consider sending the surplus to the troops worldwide or to food pantries. Better to take a loss than let them go to waste.

This situation does not surprise me. Kids selling the boxes with good hopes but at $5.00 a box, some of us may step back and decide that this purchase is not economically sound.
Too many are suffering food insecurity and are trying to provide basic food, cookies at this price do not fit the equation.
