    From the Girls Scouts website: "It started in 1917 when Girl Scouts in Muskogee, Oklahoma, did what Girl Scouts everywhere always do. They had a great idea. The girls of Mistletoe Troop hit upon the clever idea to fund their projects by selling cookies they made themselves in their kitchens at home."

    Over a million girls have sold the signature cookies to help teach empowerment and life skills.
