Nicole Frederick with the Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania says they kicked off the first day of cookie-selling season at the Shops at Liberty Place. This year marks the 99th year of Girl Scout cookie sales.

“So it started in Philadelphia and they were sort of like a shortbread, they were a sugar cookie and they were sold out of someone’s window. It was like a drive-up window. The cookies weren’t very good, either. If you would make them today, they’re not as good as the shortbread we have now,” said Frederick.

Twelve-year-old Faith Rinali has been selling cookies since she was about 7.

“Even though it’s work, it’s still really fun,” she said.

Her favorite cookie is also the best seller.

(Kuznits:) “What is it about those thin mints?”

“They taste really good when you freeze them and it’s mainly the best, crunchiest cookie that I have ever tasted!” she said.

(Kuznits:) “You’re a good seller!”
