One problem is, the problem is, Honey Boo Boo isn’t a Girl Scout. The reality TV star whose real name is Alana Thompson was doing quite well selling cookies online for a friend who is a Girl Scout.
That’s the other problem. The Girl Scouts don’t allow their cookies to be sold online. The organization says the goal is to help the girls develop interpersonal skills while selling in person.
The Honey Boo Boo cookies were had a little extra appeal because of some swag thrown in.
The young star was sending out boxes with signed pictures and other autographs and other perks.
There is good news for the troop that provided the cookies. They will get credit for the over 400 boxes already sold before the cease and desist notice came from the head office.
