West Seattle weekend scene: First full day of Girl Scout Cookie sales; complete local list of who’s where, when

March 1, 2014 at 3:01 pm | In How to help, West Seattle news | 7 Comments

Thanks to Carey for the photo of Troop 45120 launching Girl Scout Cookie sales at Admiral Safeway. This is the first morning-to-night day of the 17-day sale; we mentioned the online cookie-locator lookup in our West Seattle Friday preview yesterday. Using that, with a 5-mile radius around the 98116 zip code, we believe this is the complete West Seattle list from now through the end of cookie sales two weeks from tomorrow, troop by troop, generally in 2-hour increments. (Troop 45120 will be back at it tomorrow, 10 am-noon, at PCC Natural Markets-West Seattle [WSB sponsor]; if you check the linked list, you can find cookies somewhere all the way up until 8 pm.)

  2. As a former GSA leader/member here and overseas, I encourage you to help support the girls and their goals. If you’re not able to eat the cookies or have only spare change, please consider donating whatever you can to Operation Thin Mint. OTM, a service project started 12 years ago while we were still stationed in San Diego, has sent millions of boxes of cookies to deployed troops around the world. Our family has personally experienced the joy a small box of cookies brings to the deployed military member. Thank you.

  3. I enjoy donating to the scouts and my kids were excited about the cookies…but reading the ingredients made me not want to eat them. Transfat, corn syrup, artificial flavors. I’m not sure why these cookies are cheaper, but Girl Scouts should save their money and just ask for donations. Or sell chocolate!

  4. They’re certainly not organic/whole food items. But according to the online nutrition info, they do NOT contain transfats, and the corn syrup is not high-fructose, FWIW. Here’s the info I just found, in case you want to read up before buying (we just got a box from a troop selling near the Farmers’ Market) http://www.littlebrowniebakers.com/cookies/cookies-consumers-love – click any cookie variety listed on the page to see its nutritional info.

  5. Thank you for that. Thin mints were the ones we got, and not to be nit picky but “partially hydrogenated palm kernel and/or cottonseed oil, soybean and palm oil”. Am I incorrect that hydrogenated oils are transfats?

  6. Going back to search-engine land, I am having trouble finding a clear explanation of the difference but there seems to be some difference – though neither is considered to be healthful.

  7. James, you are correct that hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils are transfats.
    FDA label ‘loophole’ allows manufacturers to say 0 transfats if the per serving is 0.49 or less.
