Yow Yow! Visits Molly Moon’s!

photo 3

During my last visit to Seattle, I had an opportunity to visit the office of Molly Moon’s ice cream shop! The invitation for the trip was not only humbling for me as I learned that Molly Moon herself is a Yow Yow! reader, but also very special to me as Molly Moon’s opened up shop in Capitol Hill while I was a student at Seattle University. I still remember just how excited I was to be having an ice cream shop down the street from my dorm. It was frequented by my friends and I for my entire four years there and oh gosh – that smell of their freshly made waffle cones – how could anyone forget? It’s the kind of smell that you would want in your life every day if you could have it and actually – everyone that works at Molly Moon’s appears to be just that lucky!

Together, Veronica and I have visited a couple businesses within Seattle, but by far – Molly Moon’s was the most delicious. I was contacted by Emilia Arnold a couple of weeks before my return home and it just happened to work out that I could schedule a visit when I was in town. Before I had moved away, there was an empty space next to the ice cream shop. For a long time, there was some speculation that it might be a place where you get an inside look at how they were making their ice cream and cones – kind of like a Willy Wonka type of a shop. I later learned that the space was transformed into an amazing office space for their employees. Just see for yourself!

OH MY Goodness. And if that news doesn’t melt your heart and warm your stomach enough, then the Girl Scouts themselves will be selling their cookies and greeting customers outside of the shops beginning at 3PM.

My Embarrassing Moment of the Day

OH MY GOSH Girl Scout cookies! This is the best idea ever! I really like Samoas… but I really like Thin Mints and always get Thin Mints. (points to a box on the far left) – Are these the new cookies for the year?
Girl Scout: No, those came out last year. (points to the yellow box of Savannah Smiles) These are the new ones for 2012.
Oh I totally knew that only because I blogged about them! (slowly turns to Maddie) – I can’t believe I just said that…

To the mother who suggested to her Girl Scout daughter and her friends that they set up shop outside of the Starbucks, you are a genius.

Girl Scouts Reveal New Cookie

Savannah Smiles is the new cookie introduced to the line of cookies the Girl Scouts will be selling this year. Created for the organization’s 100th birthday, Savannah Smiles is a lemon wedge cookie that is topped off with powdered sugar. YUM! I’ve always been a Thin Mint girl through and through, but I am such a cookie fiend that I might purchase myself a box of these too.

Girl Scouts Downsizing Their Cookies

Due to the current state of the economy, the Girl Scouts will only be selling six varieties of their cookies. Before you fret over whether or not your favorites will be continued – don’t worry – they probably are. Thin Mints, Tagalongs, Samoas, Lemon Chalet Cremes, Do-Si-Dos, and Trefoils are the ones that made the cut. The gang’s all here! They’re the top selling cookies every year and let’s face it, getting rid of thin mints would put them out of business forever.

Girl Scouts goes in for a makeover

Design agency OCD has redesigned the new Girl Scouts logo by adding a little more neck, a nose job, and some fluffy bangs. The logo featuring the girls was first introduced back in the 1980’s. OCD shows a time line of how the brand came to be and what other changes they have updated for the organization here.
