Who would steal from little girls? I mean Thin Mints are my favorite Girl Scout cookies, but they’re only about $5 a box. Five dollars makes it totally worth the sweet indulgence of chocolate mints!
Thieves recently lifted $19,000 worth of Girl Scout cookies from a South Carolina warehouse, and they apparently had very particular taste, taking only Thin Mints and Short Breads.
The warehouse owner explained that the cookies began arriving on Feb. 15th, and some 5,000 boxes were discovered missing on Tuesday. Maybe the thieves were just trying to take the cookies most in demand; Thin Mints account for a quarter of all Girl Scout cookie sales, which collects seven more interesting facts about America’s favorite cookies here.
