Candy + Meat Sticks >>>>> (overpriced) popcorn. 

There ya go....  Marketing vs "A Scout is Thrifty"?   

May I observe that the reason for POPCORN is two fold.   An alternative to (shudder) GSUSA Cookies, and a guaranteed share for Council.

I dare say, very few Packs/Troops/Crews/Ships  send any share of their proceeds from car washes, mulch sales, Holiday Decor/Tree sales, meatsticks, breakfasts/dinners,  etc. etc., to Council.  

Does GSUSA  approve/suggest Scout Accounts, those pseudo commission for unit fun(d)raising ? 

Back when I was my Eagle Patrol Treasurer (Scouts paid dues to me, we used it to buy our gear and supplies for campouts),  the Troop sold donuts door to door, Christmas trees and  helped with our CO's dinners for a share.  There was on such thing as a "SCOUT ACCOUNT". It all went to the Troop to pay for awards and camp fees.... Another story....

Who Will Buy ?



""""Who will buy this wonderful gluten?

Such a cookie you never did see

Who will wrap it up in mylar?

And put it in a box for me


So I could eat it at my leisure

Whenever things go wrong

Or try to keep it in my freezer

To last my whole life long ?


Who will buy this old Girl Scout Cookie??

It's so good, my glucose is high,

Me oh my, I guess I won't eat it,

So what am I to do

 to keep this box so blue?

There must some place it can hide ? ? ?
