To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts, Molly Moon’s Ice Cream is giving away free kid-sized scoops of Scout Mint ice cream starting at noon today. The scoops are available at all the locations, including the Wallingford shop at 1622 N. 45th St.
Owner Molly Moon Neitzel is a former Girl Scout. “I learned so much as a Girl Scout,” Neitzel says. “I want girls everywhere to know that they can do anything they want to do with their lives, and that’s probably the biggest thing Girl Scouting taught me.”
In the last four years, Molly Moon’s has used more than 12,000 boxes of Thin Mint cookies from the Girl Scouts of Western Washington to make the top-selling ice cream. Neitzel is also sponsoring four Girl Scout camperships in 2012, sending two scouts from Washington and two scouts from her native Idaho to camp this coming summer.
