Girl Scout Cookie Facts

The cookie drive has come and gone for this year,and I had my fill of  tag-a-longs! But here are some fascinating facts about the phenomenon known as Girl Scout Cookies!

The earliest record of Girl Scouts selling cookies was of a 1917 service project by the Mistletoe Troop in Muskogee, Okla.

In 1933, 44 Girl Scout cookies cost a mere 23 cents.

The words “Girl Scout Cookies” first appeared on a box of cookies in 1935, for the Girl Scout Federation of Greater New York.

Thin Mints, or Chocolate Mints as they were called then, officially made the scene in 1951, along with sandwich and shortbread cookies.

Girl Scout cookies free of trans-fatty acids went on sale in 2007.
