SEATTLE, Monday, Jan. 11, 2010 – Molly Moon’s Homemade Ice Cream is seeking Thin Mint cookies from Western Washington’s Girl Scouts for its signature “Scout Mint” ice cream. Girl Scouts of Western Washington are currently taking cookie orders from their families and friends and Molly Moon is encouraging them to stop by her Wallingford and Capitol Hill shops and sell her a box or two.
In order for Moon to keep both of her shops stocked with Scout Mint throughout 2010, she will need at least 4,500 boxes of the thin, minty, chocolate-covered wafers that make this ice cream flavor so popular.
In 2009, Moon purchased more than $18,000 in Girl Scout cookies from individual scouts and helped to send more than 30 girls to Girl Scout camp with “camperships” – scholarships earned by campers that assist in sending them to camp. This year, scouts will need to sell at least 800 boxes of cookies to receive a campership and Molly Moon’s aims to help send several girls to camp. Moon, a former Girl Scout, attended camp for 11 years and values her time at camp as some of her most empowering life experiences.
