Taste Test: Grand Junction Girl Scout Cookies Ranked Worst to First
Girl Scout cookie time is winding down, but before it's all said and done, it's time to put the cookies to the test.
100+ Years of Girl Scout Cookies
Would you believe the Girl Scouts have been selling cookies for more than 100 years? It's true. The year 1917 is the earliest indication that cookies were being sold to help fund Girl Scout troop activities.
I haven't been eating Girl Scout cookies that long, but I have many, many years of experience indulging in these delicious treats. People who have never eaten Girl Scout cookies may wonder what the big deal is about, but the fact is, these cookies are super-delicious.
The Elephant in the Room
Before we get to the taste test and ranking of Girl Scout cookies, let's talk about the elephant in the room. If you are looking for value and a cheap package of cookies, go to the dollar store. But, if you want a delicious package of cookies and you want to make a difference in the lives of girls in Colorado, do some Girl Scout cookies. If you want to break down per cookie, it's going to cost you anywhere from 12 cents to 41 cents per cookie, depending on which kind you get.
Girl Scout Cookies Truly Are Delicious
Here's the thing. I think a lot of people would buy Girl Scout cookies even if they weren't so good, just because they want to support the program. But, the reality is, these cookies really are delicious. It's a win-win situation. We get to enjoy delicious cookies and the good feeling of supporting the cause, and the Girl Scouts are able to raise much-needed funds to carry out vital Girl Scout programs.
