The very first Girl Scout Cookies were sold in 1917. While they’ve undergone a number of updates and changes over the past 100 years, they’re still more popular than ever.
A Girl Scout troop in Muskogee, Okla., was the first group to raise money through baked goods. The scouts sold cookies in their high school cafeteria. Commercially baked Girl Scout Cookies were first sold in 1933 and cost just 23 cents a box — that’s a far cry from today’s $4 to $5!
Nowadays, you don’t even need to know a Scout to get your Thin Mint fix; all the cookies can be purchased online.
