MOLLY MOON'S SEEKING THIN MINTS FROM LOCAL GIRL SCOUTS

Local Scouts Encouraged to Sell to Wallingford and Capitol Hill Shops


update: we have ALMOST bought 4,500 boxes of cookies! we'll probably just buy a few more tomorrow, January 13th. thanks girl scouts! you were fast!


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.

Thanks for buying cookies from me today! I was the first one in line at the Wallingford store and my dad bought me a scoop of pear sorbet before we went back to school!

I have two girl scouts from Lake Forest Park, troop 42686 that would love to come down and sell you a couple of boxes and have some ice cream. Please let me know if you are still interested.

Thanks

Kerrie

I'm sure it tastes good but I thought a goal of Molly Moon's was all natural ice cream? Thin mints have trans fat and high fructose corn syrup in them :-\

Molly, I was in the shop tonight and I had the same thought as Gillium about using a product in your ice cream that contains trans fats. I can appreciate you wanting to support local Girl Scouts but I have a difficult time with this, especially since you are trying to promote all-natural products. Creating ice cream with trans fats and high fructose corn syrup seems counter to your goals. Do you care to comment?

Sorry, I meant Gillius.
