Kingston, NY Candy Bar Creates Alternative to Viral Girl Scout Cookie
Every year around Spring, we look forward to our Girl Scout cookies. In my family, it's been a tradition since I was younger and we have always carried on throughout the years.
Growing up, I enjoyed throwback Girl Scout cookie flavors such as Savannah Smiles and Ole Oles. To this day, I still love Thin Mints and Tagalongs as well.
I have noticed that chain grocery stores do carry cookies similar to the Girl Scouts Thin Mints and Tagalongs but nothing can compare.
With all of the recent news of the latest Girl Scout cookie scam, it left loyal customers wondering if they should make a purchase this year.
Did You Hear About The Girl Scout Cookie Scam?
According to WRRV,
Cookie scalpers were trying to get money from those who were eager to purchase the new flavor, Raspberry Rally. This sale was taking place on eBay.
However, a spokesperson for the GirlScouts of USA confirmed that the sale made by an unauthorized seller was disappointing. They also shared that ultimately, it took away the experience from the Girl Scouts themselves.
Who would do this? We may never know, but it is something to be on the lookout for.
