A South Carolina man recently dropped $540 on Girl Scout cookies. But it's not because he had a huge hankering for Thin Mints. He had a much better reason.
As temperatures started plunging towards freezing late last week, the man, who had already spent $40 on a few boxes, returned telling the members of Greenville's Troop 1574, "Pack up all of your cookies. I'm taking them all so y'all can get out of this cold".
According to a mother of one of the girls, his purchase would have taken another day and a half to unload. While the "Good Samaritan" didn't give his name, he did tell the mom that he was a local businessman "and that he was going to take the cookies to the businesses."
Now that's a story that'll warm your heart on these cold days!
Which are your favorite Girl Scout cookies? I'm a Samoa fan myself, but will never turn down the traditional Thin Mint. Do you have a parent who always tries selling them at work? I do...and sometimes I feel guilty for not giving in...but then I remember what my bathroom scale reads and I'm quickly over the guilt!
By the way, do you know why Thin Mints are so addictive? See the pic below:
