Tis the season to call your favorite Girl Scout and order your thin mints! But how much are you paying for a box this year? It might vary depending on where you live. 

Girl Scout cookies are an American staple. Every year around this time, you find a Girl Scout and let them know you want at least four boxes of your favorite classic cookie, maybe a rough new variety of two and then you forget you even ordered any.

Then, two months later, your Girl Scout delivers your cookies to your house and you question what you do in your free time when you scarf down a whole sleeve in less than five minutes. Don't worry, I can actually eat the whole box in five minutes, so you shouldn't feel bad.

Thin mints are always called thin mints, but they vary in product size depending on the region... I know this is mind-blowing, you can read more about the different cookies here. 

And you can order $5 boxes from Mackenzie here.
