I was just wondering, is selling lemonade on the street by children a largely American phenomena?
Hey! who you calling a foreigner, you foreigner!!!
Yes it is. I didn't know it still went on. Also that cookie thing from girl scouts, or whatever you call them, never seen it anywhere else.
People in this area will kill for Thin Mints.
Are you talking about the little thin square ones with a soft mint filling? If so, cant you get them?
I love them...
When I was stationed in Italy there were a group of women known as campfire girls, but I'm pretty sure they weren't selling cookies.
TranterUK, thin mints are only sold by the girl scouts like twice a year. They are small and round and very addictive. They don't have a soft filling, although that sounds nice.
Lemonade stands seem to be getting fewer and far between. And that's ashame. I guess parents don't want strange adults giving their kids money. Last time I saw one is when I was living in Denver, CO and it cost me .50 for a friggin' dixie cup.
Those were the days back when it was safe to sell lemonade...man, I miss that.
My town is still small town America, for sure. There is always a lemonade or Kool-Aid stand on one of the blocks, but the kids are more hyperactive than I remember. They run out into the street and try to sell their beverages while vehicles are still moving! It is quite alarming that their parents don't seem to give a hoot. I've had the mobile red-wagon vegetable peddlers too, LOL!
These are chocolate covered cookies that are mint flavored. They're great.
Everyone knows that Thin Mints are highly inferior to Somoas.
Then why this little bit of info, from the Girl Scout FAQs?
>Q: What are the best-selling Girl Scout Cookies?
A: The biggest sellers are:
25% Thin Mints
19% Samoas®/Caramel deLites®
13% Peanut Butter Patties®/Tagalongs®
11% Peanut Butter Sandwich/Do-si-dos®
The other varieties combined account for the remaining 23%. <
Looks like the Thin Mints are better, to me.
Yea and if you looked at our last election it would look like Barack Obama was the best man to run the country too. But just because people responded that way don't make it true!
Sorry! Not sold to Foreigners!!
ARB and artabr, Keebler sells a cookie called the Grasshopper. It is the same recipe as the Girl Scout Thin Mints. Try 'em, you'll see.
When I was 8 my older my sister, brother and me set up a lemonade selling operation. This was the only ocassion I'm aware somebody tried this here. That was almost 40 years ago. We got the idea from american comics. (Nancy, Archie etc.) We sold one glass.
