Ordered Girl Scout cookies lately? You might have noticed that the portions are smaller than usual. It turns out Girl Scouts of the USA are not immune to today’s weakening economy. The corporation along with their cookie bakers decided to lower the weight of the cookies rather than raise the prices.
Girl Scouts of the USA released this statement saying: “Girl Scout cookies are still as delicious as they’ve ever been and we hope that Girl Scout cookie lovers will understand the situation and continue to support our girls.”
The company also says their cookies are not affected by the peanut butter warning.
