The most popular Girl Scout cookie in Maine is Carmel DeLites.

Remember last year the new one was Adventurefuls. A brownie-inspired chocolate cookie topped with caramel flavored crème and a pinch of sea salt. Nice name, Adventurefuls, since Girl Scouts are well known for adventure all year long.

Look away, if seeing cookies will make the next few days  more difficult to endure.

A few years ago Michelle Carr, a Girl Scout Troop leader in the Pittsfield area, was deemed the Official Girl Scout dealer of the Q106.5 Morning Show.

Michelle is a lifer. Her daughters are now adult Girl Scouts, but Michelle still has 4 Girl Scout troops, and volunteers at Camp Natarswi,

Michelle reminds us:

This year, for the 2nd year girls can have cookie booths at their homes like a lemonade stand.


More and more Girl Scouts are shifting their focus to on line sales. The Girl Scout organization is focusing on having the girls hone their e commerce skills.

Years ago when preparing for an interview I read about so many successful American women who are successful in many fields, business, leadership and sports were Girl Scouts when they were younger. And that has stuck with me.

When you meet the sellers of Girl Scout cookies this year, you never know, you are more likely than not meeting a person who is going far in life.
