I had a couple of great experiences this year. I don't ever buy these cookies for me, and I avoided the scouts this year as much as possible, but two encounters were great.
The first was at a gas station/convenience store. As I was walking in, a little girl, no more than 3 feet tall, walked toward me with a big smile on her face. She didn't say a word, but she melted my heart. I asked if she had some Caramel Delights (my wife's favorite), and she started shaking her head "Yes", and she ran back to the table. I bought two boxes, simply because I couln't help it.
The next was when I was walking in to a grocery store. This girl asked me if I would buy some, and I replied, "I'll get some on my way out." No fool was she, as she replied, "Actually, we're only going to be here a few more minutes." So, I asked what she had.
She walked around the table and recommended two. She pointed to one box and said that, "these are really good with milk", then she pointed to another and said they were great with coffee.
How could anyone resist that??? I bought the "coffee ones" (as I remember, they were some kind of cinnamon snaps).
Just for the record, as I left the store, the table was gone, so she was telling the truth. But, she was a great little salesgirl!!!
