Northeast Ohio is Thin Mints country
Who are all the local psychopaths buying Thin Mints?
By the numbers: In 2022, the Girl Scouts of Northeast Ohio sold more than 500,000 boxes of the minty, chocolate-covered cookie — accounting for more than a quarter of the local chapter's total sales of more than 2 million boxes.
Between the lines: The caramel-coconut Samoas and chocolate-peanut butter Tagalongs, which many view (correctly) as the superior options, were the only other varieties to crack the 300,000 mark.
Driving the news: This year's campaign runs until March 26, with in-person booth sales beginning Friday at grocery stores and other businesses across the region.
Yes, but: This year's new cookie, Raspberry Rally — described as a "sister" to the Thin Mint, with a raspberry flavor — is sold out and no longer available locally, Girl Scouts of Northeast Ohio told Axios.
- Axios' Kelly Tyko reports that on Ebay, unauthorized resales of the boxes are going as high as $79.99.
