Jennifer Garner sells Girl Scout cookies outside grocery store

Jennifer Garner sells Girl Scout cookies outside grocery store

Apparently, she bought a small portion of her daughters' cookie orders and made a decision to resell them to people who don't have access to a Girl Scout.

Jennifer Garner is a Girl Scout troop leader, and she spent her weekend outside a local grocery store encouraging people to buy cookies in support of her two daughters' local troop.

In her Instagram Stories later that day, Garner announced she was taking orders from social media followers.

The photo also, intentionally or otherwise, features a customer leaving the store who's pointing in shock at Garner.

And her efforts didn't go unnoticed by the Girl Scouts.

"Why yes, kind sir, we do have Thin Mints", Garner captioned the photo.


Garner is a Girl Scout and Brownie mom for daughters Violet, 12, and Seraphina, 9, with ex-husband Ben Affleck.

Considering the DC offices aren't too far and a number of comic book professionals live in the Valley-you might bump into a gaggle of your favorite artist and writers with their kids trying to get Girl Scout cookies and empty their pull list.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls the skills they need to become effective leaders, manage finances and gain confidence in handling money-skills that will stay with them for a lifetime.

For now, it's selling as many boxes of Trefoils, Samoas, Do-si-dos, Girl Scout S'mores, Tagalongs, Thin Mints and Savannah Smiles as they can.

"I'm the one telling the girls, 'Try to talk about the gluten free because they're a dollar more, '" Garner said during the interview.
