Boys Playing catch up
The other day Joy and I were at the West LA Best Buy dropping off electronic recyclables and there were some boy scouts out there selling popcorn. We felt a bit generous so we checked out their goods and they had some caramel corn, butter corn and poppable corn all for sale. We ended up spending $10 on a bag of caramel corn, while the other stuff were selling for much more. I guess the Boy Scouts have finally caught on to the amount of sales that the Girl Scouts do during their cookie sales, but popcorn? It was a good popcorn but i can never see anyone buying more than 1 bag at a time compared to seeing people buying cases of cookies at a time. They should go for selling pocket knives or first aid kits rather than trying to compete with other snack foods.
