Girl Scout Cookie Prices Are Trending Toward $5 A Box
Prices for Girl Scout cookies in eastern Massachusetts are increasing, a trend that's already reached California and Hawaii.By Matt Moreno | November 4, 2015
It's a troubling nationwide trend: an increase in the price of thin mints.
The Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts are hiking the prices of a box of cookies to $5, a dollar increase for most. With the price jump, local chapters will receive an average of 90 cents per box instead of 62 cents a box with the old price.
The organization's chief marketing officer Jan Goldstein said the increase will offset the rising prices of Girl Scout cookie production.
