yeah, they're $3.50 here but i've heard them being sold for $4 a box. i guess it just depends on where you live, which is weird because i don't ever remember in the past them being sold for more in some parts of the country.

and yes, i totally agree about the parents doing the selling. when i was a girl scout, i sold the cookies. sure my parents would bring a sales sheet to work, but i still went door-to-door (back when that was safe), and stood outside of stores and stuff. my troop and i did the selling, the parents just supervised. nowadays, if i see the parents doing the selling while the kids sit and talk, i don't buy any.

Even a few years ago I used to see l little girls, but now all I see are parents. Last one I saw was a bunch of parents working out of a back of an SUV, standing on the side of the road in front of a Domino's holllering at traffic. Not ONE kid. Last year I saw a table full of cookies but it was just women.

Finally got some of mine today, yay! So far the thin mints and tagalongs taste the same as always so I'm happy They are $4 here like martha and carek already said, and I think that's what I paid last year too. One thing also is that there can be older girls selling as well, although they are not so many these days, there are high school and even adult Girl Scouts. I bought mine from a high school senior GS, and then I was told today that you can also be an adult GS even beyond high school, and I don't mean a troop leader or parent but the actual scout program extends into adult age. Anyways... just thought that was interesting to note that not all adults selling might be parents, although I know they probably mostly are.

Yea I know there are girl scouts of older ages and troop leaders, etc. I was a Brownie then Girl Scout through high school. These at a table outside Ralphs were very much and definitely MOM'S, not scouts or troop leaders. None were wearing any part of any kind of uniform, troop badge, nothing. Just a table piled high with cookies and about 6 moms doing the cold hard sell to people coming and going from the store. I don't need the cookies so I didn't buy any. Besides, it's hard to eat just one, let alone a sleeve or even a whole box at one sitting!!

Yep. I can easily eat a whole sleeve of the Thin Mints in one sitting. It's just very sad.

Just bought 4 boxes, for 4 dollars each. 2 Samoas, 1 Tagalong, and 1 of the Thin Mints. It's so hard to contain myself from eating them all. Already ate a sleeve of the Samoas. They taste amazing, as always.

Okay, over the weekend I found some being sold by actual little girls in boxes marked Tagalongs and Little Brownie bakeries which is what they used to be. While the peanut butter wasn't as good quality as in the past, the cookie is basically the same. The box I got and complained about is marked only 'peanut butter patty' (though otherwise it looks identical to a tagalong box) and the cookies were very, very different. The inside wrapper is silver, the 'good' ones have a clear inside wrapper. I also got a box of mints and didn't taste any difference. There really are different types going around out there this year so remember to look for the word 'tagalong'.
