It’s that time of the year when Girl Scouts (and their parents) begin their annual cookie push. And this year, local ice cream purveyor and lifetime Girl Scout, Molly Moon, is calling out to all local Girl Scouts for her annual purchase of 84,000 Thin Mint Cookies. This Friday (January 11) after 3:00pm, if you bring your Girl Scout to Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream (1622 1/2 N. 45th St.), she and her staff will be ready to hear each enterprising young lady’s sales pitch to decide how many boxes to purchase from each scout.
So, what does Moon do with 84,000 (which translates to $21,000 worth of) Thin Mints? She blends them with some organic peppermint for her signature “Scout” mint ice cream, and the money from the big cookie buy enables Girl Scouts to go to Girl Scout Camp. Win, win!
