I've seen girl scounts selling them at local supermarkets on weekends.

Sure, they're unhealthy, but I don't think one box a year will kill you.

Here's my girl scout question....As I was leaving a local supermarket last weekend I noticed a cookie sales table set up near the store exit, so I decided to buy my annual box. The table was staffed by two girls (maybe 10-11 y/o) and a woman (perhaps a mother or troop leader). The mom/leader said they were $3.50 a box, so I picked up a box and gave one of the girls a $20. When the mother/troop leader started to make change for me, I said that I wasn't in a hurry and this is something the girls should probably learn how to do. I expected her to help the girl count out the change, but to my surprise she told the kid, "Give 2 quarters, a $1, a $5 and $10. There were no other customers, so I wasn't making anyone wait in line. I was never involved in scouting, but isn't learning supposed to be part of the experience?
