Every Cookie Has a Mission

Wow, the US Girl Guides has a way more diverse cookie selection than Canada. Up here we get boxes with half vanilla, half chocolate and mint chocolate ones at Christmas.

The cookies themselves vary depending on what council you're in, even in the US. The most common is Little Brownie Bakers (Wisconsin based, I believe) but there are others. They try out new types every couple of years, and remove those that don't sell well.

It's also called Girl Guides here. The boys are called Boy Scouts.

It goes as such (from youngest to oldest)

Girls:
Sparks
Brownies
Guides
Pathfinders
Rangers

Boys:
Beavers
Cubs
Scouts
Venturers
Rovers

They changed the Girl Scout levels after I graduated high school... they added Ambassadors after Seniors and are messing with my head! How does it make sense to have Seniors not be the highest/eldest before adults?

Daisy
Brownie
Junior
Cadette
Senior
(...Ambassador)

Though we did carry our (BLUE) uniforms over from Cadette to Senior, and we were all running out of room for badges/patches :) Those've been changed up in the past decade too.

Now I'm feeling old.
