Next year's cookie sale

I don't know if this is true or not, but a leader in my service unit emailed me about next year's theme & two possible new cookies for Little Brownie Bakers. (I also don't know where she got this information from) The theme for next year is "Get Going Girlfriends" and the two new cookies are Lemon Cooler & Couble Dutch.

Hmm, if the Double Dutch means chocolate, then that's a good thing. However, I don't know how they could go back to lemon-flavored cookies again - those were a big bomb when we sold them a couple of years ago in So. CA.

Frankly, although I know it will never happen, I think they should do away with Trefoils. So many people complain that they are shortbread-y enough, and I agree.

Oh, well, ours is not to reason why...

any ideas on what cookies they'd eliminate?

And we'd love lemon cookies back! Sami got asked by several people why we didn't still have them. Guess we're an exception in this area ;-).

the Lemon Pastry Cremes from ABC were a huge seller for me, but it seemed to be hit and miss. And with us being right next to two councils that use LBB it helped with them. I'd gladly go back to LBB over ABC. From what we were told at Cookie training, ABC is getting rid of the friendship circles (thankfully) but we weren't told what they were being replaced with. LBB is probably getting rid of the Ole Ole's since those are hit and miss they have either the hate them or love them thing going on, and they may also be getting rid of the aloha chips, those were fairly big sellers but the all abouts sold better (marginally). Just my ideas.

I heard they would get rid of the Ole Oles & the Aloha Chips. I'm not as concerned about the cookies as I am about the theme: "Get Going Girlfriends". What's that about?!

Lemon was our 2nd biggest seller though!

If I remember correctly, the bakery gives the council choices, like 10 cookies to choose from, and the council picks 8 to sell. So just because one council opts to dump a poor seller, doesn't mean it isn't still being made for other councils.
