Look like Girl Scout Cookies are downsizing

From the WSJ: "Cookie Cutters: Girl Scouts Trim Their Lineup for Lean Times"
when I was selling Girl Scout cookies, we hated having the "duds" - there were always a couple on the list that were useless...so we'd have orders from people who'd buy a case of two of Thin Mints, and a case of the peanut butter ones (either Do Si Dos or Savannahs, depending on what part of th country your in)...so we'd go pick up our orders to deliver and there'd be ONE box of whatever weird one they came up with this year.
Makes all kinds of financial sense to not bother with the slow- or non-movers...stick to the Samoas and Thin Mints...it's what we all want, anyway.
(and people were bitching back then because they were $1.75 a box....)
