Brand of the Day: Girl Scouts Take Their $800 Million Cookie Business to the Web

Thin Mints are a click away

The first Girl Scout cookie was sold in 1917 to raise funds for a troop in Oklahoma, and the young ladies in the green vests have been peddling their baked goods ever since. It's hard to find someone who doesn't like Girl Scout cookies, but it can often be hard to find the cookies themselves. For close to a century now, pretty much the only way to score a box of Do-Si-Dos or Thin Mints was to wait for the scouts to ring your doorbell. But that is about to change.
