The official and most common way for a member of the Girl Scouts of America to earn money for activities is through the yearly sale of cookies.  They come in small boxes (about the size of a liter of milk).  Several flavors and kinds are available.

 

Probably the most typical way they are sold is at the entrance to a supermarket.  Some Girl Scouts and at least one adult have a table, and on the table several boxes of cookies are displayed.  A Girl Scout (often two or three) approach you, ask if you would like to buy some cookies, you choose the kind you want, you pay the girls, and you take home the cookies.  Often parents help their daughters sell cookies by taking orders at work, returning later with the boxes that their colleagues want. 

 

This is not the only way for Girl Scouts to earn money, but it's official, nationwide, and a very old tradition.  The cookies come from the same manufacturer.  The cookies you buy in San Diego are the same kind for sale in Miami.  And, yes, the cookies are quite good!
