Girl Scouts Selling Cookies


By Joey Martin

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) It's that time of the year...

From mid-January to mid-March, Girl Scouts across the county are practicing their salesmanship, but what they're selling doesn't take a big push to move product.

It’s cookie time, and the Girls Scouts of Silver Sage set up shop in front of the Neuhoff Communication broadcast center Friday afternoon.

Thin Mints... Samoas... Do-Si-Dos... Oh my!!!

For the Girl Scouts of Troop 6, selling these little boxes of goodness is all about making their organization the best it can be and starting out on the right foot.

"The purpose of selling Girl Scout Cookies is to share a tasty food product, and the Girl Scout Cookie business is to teach the girls about having a business," explains Troop Leader Jackie Fields.

Around 12 girls, ranging from all levels of scouting, set up shop right here on Blue Lakes to the sale of their world famous Girl Scout Cookies.

Now of course eating the cookies is everyone’s favorite part, no matter your age, but the sale of these cookies is actually benefiting the girls in a major way.

"It's to raise money for our troop so our troop can do fun things... like go to camp... go to Hands On, fun things like that. And also buy badges," explains Allison, from Troop 6.

"These monies help our council fund its projects, and it helps our troop and our service unit fund their projects, as well. So we use this to buy materials for crafts, to help girls go to camp... to have parties... to do our service projects for other people," Fields says.

Buying a box of cookies and supporting our future leaders of tomorrow... Now, how could you say no to that?

Girl Scout troops all over the Magic Valley will continue to sell cookies up until March 16th.

Locations vary all over the area, so just keep an eye out and your pocket book ready.
