We didn't realize. Well, we don't know anything about Girl Scout Cookies, let's be honest. - Yeah. - All we know is that they appear in films all the time with Girl Scouts selling cookies and we don't have that in the UK. - We genuinely thought this is just something that exists in films, so we're really excited to have actually come across some Girl Scouts and we're gonna try some of their cookies. - Definitely. So before we get cracking, we'll just insert the footage now from when we stumbled across the cookies and then we will taste test them. - [Lia] Hello, hello, what is all of this? Hello. - Would you like some Girl Scout Cookies? - [Joel] We would. - [Lia] We absolutely would. - [Joel] We've never tried them before. - They're very good. - They are delicious. - [Joel] Are they? - Yes. - [Lia] Someone has recommended, well, the peanut butter. - [Joel] I'll try the Thin Mints as well. - [Lia] Yeah, can you explain what this is all about? We don't have this in the UK. - So, we sell Girl Scout Cookies. $500 this year of what we sold will go to the Ronald McDonald House, which is a charity here, and then the rest will go to help fund fun Girl Scout activities for us. - [Lia] Okay, cool. Is this a Girl Scout like-- - Yes, this is our sash and we can earn patches for what we do. So, this is for Veteran's Day. - [Lia] Yeah. - This is for selling cookies. We did some detective work. This is for cooking. - [Lia] That is so cool. - [Joel] That's really cool. - [Lia] I love that. So basically who makes... So is this a brand, Girl Scout Cookies is a brand and you're like the ambassadors? - [Dad] They have their own manufacturing facilities. - Yeah, so it's only until the end of February. - [Dad] So, it's a non-profit group that supports young girls. - [Lia] So back in the day, would Girl Scout Cookies have been something that like the Girl Scouts would have made at home? No? - I think they've always been made by-- - Yeah, they've always been made by this particular bakery. - [Lia] Yeah, so cool. - [Joel] That's really cool 'cause we have something similar in the UK called Girl Guides, but I don't think they sell cookies. Not that I'm aware of anyway. (laughs) - [Lia] Okay, so what should we get? Like one of everything, Joel? - [Joel] Shall we? - [Lia] Shall we? And this is a very modern stand, they actually take cards. (laughs) - Here's the two everyone likes and here's Thin Mints. - [Lia] Oh, that's amazing, okay. - So now I gotta-- - [Lia] We'll try it on card. If not, we'll do cash. - That's fine. - [Mom] They just need to keep track of their inventories. - [Joel] Oh, okay. - [Mom] So how many boxes are we selling, ladies? - Eight. - [Dad] Eight, one of each. - [Joel] You've gotta be good at maths, haven't you? We're not very good at that. - [Lia] I just love the sashes. Oh, so cute. And it's obviously going to a good cause, so that's what's really nice about it. - [Dad] It's a great cause. - [Lia] Aww. - [Man In Line] The Girl Scouts have been doing this forever. - [Lia] Yeah? - So how much do they owe you? - $32. - [Lia] Okay, thank you so much! - The Caramel Delights are really good. - [Lia] Oh, so is that our box? (laughs) - Thank you. Thanks very much. We've now got a lot of Girl Scout Cookies. (laughs) So I said to them, we're going to bring them back for friends and family as well. - [Lia] Yeah. - So we're not just going to eat them ourselves. - I'm just blown away by how confident the girls were. Joel was saying if that was us and we were their age, we would have been like, "Oh my gosh." - The camera. - Oh God, what to say. - Honestly, it took us so long to get comfortable on camera, let alone when we were that age. They were so confident. - Yeah, I can't wait to try these when we get back and see what the hype is all about. That guy next to us, who you might have heard in the vlog, being like, "The Girl Scouts have been doing this for time." Yeah, that wasn't just the voice of a random, he was queuing up as well. - I spoke to him afterwards and he said that he's a big of an anglophile, and that he finds it really difficult to determine where someone's from in the UK based on their accent 'cause there are so many, and I was like, "Even we struggle sometimes." - So, we just spent loads of money on Girl Scout cookies. - And now there's another one. - There's another stand right here. - I know. - Oh my gosh, hi! - We've just bought loads of Girl Scout Cookies. - We've never tried these before in our life, so we just spent loads of money trying all of them and now we've just come across another stand. (girls laughing) Oh, no. Well, it's good to see. - [Joel] We don't have this in the UK. - [Lia] Five for 20, we missed out on that offer. - [Joel] We missed out on a good deal. - [Lia] Operation Cookie Drop. (laughs) Should of come here. Well, have a good day. - Thank you, you too. - [Lia] Bye. You're disgusting. You are literally a joke. Are you gonna say what you did or not? - Me and Lia were practicing squatting for photos and as I squatted, I did two huge farts and we're in public and we just ran. (laughs) I can't help it. - [Lia] Oh my gosh. - I'm bloated, me. - Clearly. - It was that burger. - [Lia] We'll get you back home and on the loo immediately. - Yeah, thank you. Wow, it's by magic. We're just back here again, wow. - Can I just say that we were given full permission by the girls and their parents to put them on camera so in case anyone's gonna get upset about that, that was all pre-planned. - It was all planned. And the girls were so sweet, weren't they? - So cute, honestly. - Yeah, so cute. And then we bumped into those girls down the street and more Girl Scouts. They gave us a box to carry them in 'cause we bought so many. - Yeah, we bought one of each flavor. - Yeah. - So, I think the first one I grabbed was these! - Yeah! - Okay, should we just rip them open? - Yeah, just rip it open. Go on. - And it's all for a good cause, Joel. We spent money for a good-- - I know! - Why is it always me, why, why? - You can't ever open things, can you? - Cereals, boxes. - Right, oh, oh! Big pack. - I'm so excited. The only thing that could make this more perfect would be dipping it in tea. We could make a coffee and do that, okay. - Oh, they smell like Reese's. - Oh my gosh. - Oh my gosh. - Mmm. Oh my goodness, yeah. - That's so nice, mmm. - Peanut Butter Patties, mmm! I'd give those a solid eight out of ten. - Me too, that is definitely an eight out of ten. - "Girl Scouts, taking on new challenges "builds our confidence." "When we achieve our goals, we grow even more empowered." I just grew more empowered from eating a peanut butter cookie. - Same. - That was stunning. - Thanks, girls. - Thank you, girls! - Thanks, girls. - Girls, girls! Okay, next one. Joel, pick a color. Caramel deLites. - Okay. - So, the girl on the stand really recommended these ones to me. Oh, they smell coconut-y. Three, two, one. - [Both] Mmm! - Oh my gosh, I love these! - So much going on in one biscuit. - It's like chocolate, coconut, biscuit, caramel. - And caramel. - They taste a bit like coconut macaroon things. - Mmm, Mrs Crim's. - They're good, I give them an eight and a half. They're better than the peanut butter ones. - I'd even say that might be a nine. Girls. - Girls. - You've done it again. You've outdone yourself. (laughs) Every single one gets higher and higher. - Yeah. (laughs) - Lemonades. - Lemonades. She said these are covered in icing. - Lemonades. - Mmm, what I wanna know is, most of them came in boxes, but then a few of them came in trays like this. I wonder why. - Okay. - Okay, cheers. - Cheers. - Oh, and it's like a lemon. - Mmm, mmm! - The design on them. - It's nice and light. I bet these are lower in calories. - Mm-hmm, let's not even look at calories. - Mmm, let's not.
