Editorial: Local Girls Spread Fame And Calories

Every year we look forward to Girl Scout cookie season, which runs from early January to late March—even though the calories involved do not help us lose the extra pounds we picked up over the holidays. We buy our Thin Mints and Tagalongs in bulk, but even so we’re out long before the next round of sales. So we are always in a state of eager anticipation by the time the girls in green and brown appear in front of the Long Island Railroad station in Floral Park. We don’t even mind their parents shilling the tasty treats at work.  

This year, however, our GS cookie delight was especially special, with our girls featured on boxes of Samoas, Thin Mints, Tagalongs, and lemony Savannah Smiles. Amanda represents Glen Cove on boxes of Thanks-A-Lots. It’s a privilege to be so honored—and not just for pretty faces: their comments on key Girl Scout themes are featured on the boxes as well. We take pride in our hometown Scouts, and congratulate them on this special honor.

Now, about those calories…
