Once upon a time, Miss Scrambled Egg was a girl scout; she paraded around in a brown vest collecting patches for learned skills and exciting day trips. She also sold a lot of Girl Scout Cookies. Girl Scout Cookie selling is a tough job in New England because it takes place in the winter. Troops set up stands outside of grocery stores and plazas to market themselves. It’s freezing and kind of miserable, but it teaches the young girls about patience and communication.
To this day, I always look forward to February and March (probably a little bit too much). It’s Girl Scout Cookie season. The little troops make camp outside of our Starbucks store dressed as Samoas and Tagalongs. They bat their eyelashes at our customers and generally do a booming business. My favorite Girl Scout Cookie has to be the Tagalong–a peanut butter and chocolate cookie that reminds me of my childhood.
