Cookie or the Corn


If you didn’t know by now cookie season has arrived once again.  Meaning Girl Scout Cookies.  As all of us are probably excited about this, there is a question that’s come ashore that probably hasn’t been touched on.  Here it is:
Is a person bound to buy more cookies because they’re “good” or is it because a cute little girl is selling them?
How about a switch of senerios.  What if a Boy Scout came to your door and wanted you to buy popcorn, since the Boy Scout’s seller is popcorn.
Are people less likely to buy popcorn because they don’t like it, or because a boy is selling it?
It’s pretty evident that Girl Scout cookies are more popular than Boy Scout popcorn.  So is it the little girl with her curls and smiles that makes these Girl Scout cookie sales higher than the Boy Scout popcorn sales?  Or is it because the cookies are a taster treat than the popcorn?
 So, what are your thoughts on this?  Are you at all bias towards the Girl Scouts or Boy Scouts?  If so, why?

  1. I don't think it matters who sells them, Girl Scout cookies are that good! The popcorn is ok, I buy it every year from someone, but people look forward to the cookies. And, lets face it, most of the selling is done by the parents who are not always cute.

  2. I don't think it matters... I like (and buy)both products, never really thought about girl/boy
