National Girl Scout Day!

National Girl Scout Day!

The Girl Scouts hold a special place in my heart! I was a Girl Scout from Kindergarten to Junior year of high school! And I loved every minute of it! Some of my best friends were girls that were in my Girl Scout troop, made multiple memories, and can kind-a-sorta build a one match fire!

  • Currently, there are about 2.6 million girl and adult members worldwide.
  • Founder Juliette Gordon Low organized the rst Girl Scout troop on March 12, 1912,
    in Savannah, Georgia. Girl Scouts celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2012.
  • Girl Scouts sell about 200 million boxes of cookies—nearly $800 million
    worth—during each cookie season.
  • Thin Mints® are the most popular variety of Girl Scout Cookies, followed by
    Samoas®/Caramel deLites® and Tagalongs®/Peanut Butter Patties®

But if you love your Girl Scout Cookies, but still want to get that summer bod ready… don’t worry I got you!
