Girl Scout Sells Tons Of Samoa Cookies After Rebranding Them With Jason Momoa

Girl Scout Sells Tons Of Samoa Cookies After Rebranding Them With Jason Momoa

Selling the same cookies over and over in the US has proved to be a golden goose for the Girl Scouts.

However as time wears on, it's difficult to keep pushing those same flavours with the same branding.

But a crafty little girl realised there was more money to be made if she rejigged the packaging to suit her customers.

The classic samosa Girl Scout cookies are 'coated in caramel, sprinkled with toasted coconut, and striped with a dark chocolaty coating'. Yeah - they sound delicious.

But Charlotte Holmberg dialled it up a notch and changed the cookie box to include a shirtless picture of Jason Momoa.

Samosa + Momoa = dollar bills, apparently.

Apparently the girl and her mum came up with the idea one night and printed off a bunch of labels to stick over the top of her boxes. It certainly helps that Charlotte's mum is an advertising executive, according to 9News.

The girl said: "The moms are getting really excited and they're saying that they need them."

Well when you've got the Game of Thrones and Aquaman actor staring at you while you munch on some cookies, seemingly saying 'go on Sharon, have another one', why wouldn't they be snapping them up.

There's no word on whether movie bosses will be happy about a little girl stealing their content to sell cookies but come on, this surely should be okay if it's helping the Girl Scouts?

It's almost as ingenious as the Girl Scout who stood outside a weed dispensary and made hundreds of dollars in an afternoon.

She managed to shift 300 boxes in just six hours, raising around $1,500 (£1,078) at a rate of around $250 (£179) an hour. And if you're doing whatever you're meant to be doing instead of reading this for $250 an hour, congrats to you.

The shop in question, Urbn Leaf in San Diego, posted an Instagram photo midway through the girl's shift that read: Get some Girl Scout Cookies with your GSC today until 4pm! Have a friend that wants to #tagalong? Bring them with - shopping is more fun with friends anyways."

Of course, while weed is legal in California, there had to be someone to try and rain of the girl's parade.

The Girl Scouts of San Diego were quick to point out that the location was not an 'approved site for booth sales' and thus not allowed, though cleverly, the girl had actually been roaming the street in front of the shop rather than staying static, meaning that she didn't directly contravene any rules.

The future is bright with these two girls.
