Waiting for Girl Scout Cookies is the ultimate test of endurance. But some poor souls are going to be cookie-deprived even longer this year, thanks to a devastating set of weather delays at Little Brownie Bakers.
In case you didn't know, Girl Scout Cookies are made exclusively by Little Brownie Bakers and ABC Smart Cookies. While ABC appears to be largely unaffected by the never-ending winter of '15, Little Brownie has been experiencing massive setbacks. Late last week, The Times-Picayune reported that Little Brownie had grounded the vast majority of its trucks, meaning shipments heading South wouldn't arrive until at least Monday, March 9th (today). But the problem runs deeper than that. The Girl Scouts of Louisiana were apparently one of the markets affected by the Thin Mints crisis first reported last month, so the local troops are already under way more stress than any band of 8-year-olds should ever be.
