Girl Scout Cookie Chocolate Options
First thing to note is that the price in my area went up from $3 a box to $3.50 a box. That might reflect raising prices of sugar and cocoa both that I tracked for you last year and which most expert area will keep raising. However I'm not sure it's a wise increase given the current economy. That's basically a 15% increase in price and when the average person may be struggling to make ends meet, they may decide not to buy the box they would have last year.
There are several reasons to buy Girl Scout Cookies. Some of us grew up selling them and eating them so we love them and it has become an annual rite to buy them. Others of us may want to support the Girl Scouts and their work with empowering girls so we buy a box or two. Others of us simply think "Oh, cookies!" and buy them. What ever your reason, you better place a note on your 2011 calendar for early in the year because these go fast once they hit the stores and the roads.
Sisters and Brothers, may you, too, take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
