Girl Scout Cookies - Burry Day 10

Burry produced Girl Scout Cookies from the 1940's up until 1982 when Quaker Oats sold the company. I am not sure but my best guess is that they sold Burry to Kellogg's which changed the name to Little Brownie Bakers. Luckily many of the great cookies produced by Burry continue to be produced. These boxes and signs really show the charm of Girl Scout Cookie advertising.

Hi. I just hit on your site when I googled Gaucho Cookies. They were my absolute favorite cookie growing up in the 50's/60's. Did you know that the Girl Scouts sell a cookie called "peanut butter sandwich"? It's as close to a Gaucho as you can get, possibly close to the original recipe. I wait for the sale each year and usually buy 12+ boxes. The company that bakes Girl Scout cookies now is ABC Bakers/Interbake Foods, LLC in Richmond, Virginia.
