Girl Scout cookies are shrinking

I just read where Girl Scout cookies are shrinking. Lemon Chalet Cremes, I don't think I ever sold nor ate these, whew!, are smaller in size this year. And the boxes with Thin Mints, Do-Si-Dos and Tagalongs are going to contain fewer cookies. Whew, looks like Samoas, one of my faves are safe :) The reason for these changes are the escalating costs of flour, oils and cocoa. Did you realize that in 1933 a box of Girl Scout cookies cost 23 cents? They sell for $3.50 today. I used to love to sell these when I was a Girl Scout and was top seller almost every year. Now, who woulda thought that? I've never been competitive :)
