Honesty,integrity, self reliance, self confidence, what's not to love about the lessons learned from scouting. The Girl Scouts have been proudly helping young girls grow into amazing women for years and one of the ways they do it is through their iconic cookie sales. We all have our favorites, Thin Mints, Samoas, and the Peanut Butter ones too. But alas in these economic times in which we live, even the Girl Scouts are having to make some tough decisions.

In an effort to cut costs, several Girl Scout councils are cutting the types of cookies they sell. Among the brands on the chopping block: Thank U Berry Munch, Dulce de Leche, and several more. The goal is for the Girl Scouts to simplify their sales process and, in the process, make more money (tutoring from sales professionals probably won't hurt, either).

I hope you realize the investment you make in each box of cookies you buy. It is so much more than a tasty treat, it's a delicious taste of the future of America. Go Girls! We at 97.3 The Dawg Salute you!
