Yes it is...and we luv it! All of our neighbors, relatives, friends and staff at school support my daughters troop when they purchase cookies from her and she has a great time selling, counting money and making change. It's a fund raiser imo and is not a scam. It's not difficult to view the records and if people think the price is too high don't buy, simple!

I have heard that the company that makes the cookies gets almost all of the money, leaving the scouts almost nothing. (Maybe it isn't true though.)

Totally agree Diane. I am the cookie chair for my daughters first foray into this scheme. We are only doing it because they r so excited. We would not do the cookie college - where they dangle all the prizes they can win and show them a bunch of innovative ways they can run"their own cookie business" while funding a regional administration staff's salary's. Also the cookies r not $4 everywhere. Someone at the last cookie netting said that they r syllable 3:50 inNH. So your local area sets the price. It makes my skin crawl that more people don't question this. Our troop gets .45 per box only if all the registered girls sell at least 100. I think the fact that they are unhealthy REALLY needs to be adressed. I'm going to look up that documentary. Thanks for your comments!!!

In Massachusetts, cookies cost $4.00 per box and the profit that our troop makes off of that is 60 cents!!

How does a cub scout become a full fledged boy scout?
He's got to eat a brownie.
