Whether you remember selling them door to door as a Brownie or buying them from the office Girl Scout mother, most everyone can admit to sneaking a box of Thin Mints (preferably one chilled in the freezer).
But one Orange County Scout leader says that tradition is a bit too sweet.
Monica Serratos of Ladera Ranch and her Daisy Troop 2753 will display a Girl Scouts 100th anniversary "cake" made of fruit at the Orange County Fair on July 27 as part of the Girl Scouts of the United States of America centennial celebration.
FOR THE RECORD:
An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that the fruit "cake" would be sold at the fair.
Serratos wants to praise Scouting at the fair, but also call attention to the fact that cookies aren't good for kids who already get too much sugar at school and at home.
Serratos, 31, asked parents in her troop a couple of months ago to discuss with their daughters whether to opt out of selling cookies.
