True. According to the Girl Scouts’ website, the lion’s share of the money goes not to the troop but to bureaucrats up the chain of command in multicounty councils. The national office gets a piece of the pie, too, in the form of royalties based on gross annual sales volume - about 200 million boxes per year.more
It’s a sacrifice, because I love the cookies and the cuties who sell them, but enough is enough.
I remember the Girl Scouts being flaky way back in the early 1970s. When I was a Brownie, I was told to recite some chant and step over a mirror. If I had known the word, I would have called it “pagan.” Even an unchurched girl of 7 could smell a rat.
Last year, the Girl Scouts decided to admit boys who dress as girls. When asked to admit a cross-dressing 7-year-old boy, a Colorado troop leader demurred, explaining to his mother, with tact and irrefutable logic, that her son couldn’t be a Girl Scout because he has “boy parts.”

Girls Scout Cookies
I myself was a girls scout and today my grand daughter is. The smaller size of the cookies is not the only change this organization has seen. These days they also make it a "contest" for the girls to sell as many boxes as they can to win some useless little token like a key-chain.
