Girl scout cookies do so much for our community. Proceeds stay with local chapters to provide many opportunities for girls. They learn entrepreneurial and leadership skills that will help them later on in life. This century old tradition started in Oklahoma and the first prices started around 25 cents for a dozen. Now, the cost is a little higher, but in the end it’s a sweet deal.
Girl Scout cookies go great with ice cream. Maybe try them with a new King Cake Ice Cream.
