Why do you buy them? Did you see this article about 13,200 boxes GS cookies http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event/10979011/CA/San-Ramon/13200-Girl-Scout-cookie-boxes-destroyed/Latest-News/?
That seems like shocking waste. Why weren't they just donated? I have been buying GS cookies for years because there is nothing to be compared to their thin mints. They are hands down the best cookie on the planet.
