Anabelle and Grace Nicelini are part of the world’s biggest bake sale, a six-week marketing blitz by members of the cutest and most irresistible sales force in the world. Yes, it’s Girl Scout Cookie time. Some 180 million boxes will be sold this year, raising about $200 million for Scout programs.
The price has gone up (from $4 a box to $5) but if you absolutely have to get those Thin Mints (25 percent of all sales) or Samoas (19 percent), there’s now an app for that. To find the cookies nearest you, download it at: Girlscouts.org/program/gs_cookies/mobile_app.asp.
