Girl Scouts Have Millions of Unsold Cookies Because of the Pandemic

The Girl Scouts are dealing with an unusual, but delicious problem this year...

They have more than 15 million boxes of unsold cookies.

As the pandemic cut into their prime selling season, many scouts were forced to forego their usual in-person cookie booths.

Normally, about 200 million boxes are sold per year which totals close to $800 million which are used for camps and other Girl Scout activities.

Girl Scout officials are now asking people to buy boxes online through its Hometown Heroes program, which distributes cookies to health care workers and first responders.
