People are helping a Girl Scout who was robbed of $50 while selling cookies in Philadelphia.
Local Girl Scouts, Daisies, Brownies and Juniors - different age groups of the organization - took cookie orders from December through January, then arranged to pick them up on Saturday. What started in 1917 as a bake sale has grown into the largest girl-led entrepreneurial business in the country. Although it's a lot simpler than the Girl Scout cookies you already know and crave, the recipe is a sweet reminder that the Girl Scouts have been seeking to empower girls for a long, long time. The only thing that surprised me is that some states didn't choose Caramel deLites or Thin Mints.
Cookies are $4 per box upon delivery and are preservative free with no artificial colors.

Those looking to purchase cookies can check out the phone cookie locator app, which will help locate cookie sale booths in your area. In Girl Scouts, this program is called the "Cookies and Milk from the Heart Program".
The 2017 cookie season runs from January 29 to March 12, meaning you have a little over a month left to purchase-and stockpile-this year's cookies.
