Girl Scout Cookie Sales Down...Economy or Health?


There was a report today that Girl Scout cookie sales are down about 20% and the economy is to blame. Everyone seems to be cutting back these days and even the Girl Scouts are feeling it.

But maybe it's not the economy...maybe people realize that they don't need five boxes of Thin Mints in the house. Maybe the citizens of America have realized that their waist sizes are expanding and it has to stop...and their starting with the Tagalong patties. Perhaps the diabetics of the land are realizing that the temptation associated with Caramel deLites are too much to overcome and just stopped buying them.

Could it be possible that Americans are taking responsibility for their health? Keeping their blood sugar under control. Trying to lose the holiday weight from the last five years. Taking the stairs instead of the elevators. Walking instead of driving. Trying to take less medication rather than making medication the answer.

Unfortunately...it's probably just the economy.
