Girl Scouts selling only 6 types of cookies

The Girl Scouts are learning a tough lesson in economics.

To cut costs and increase revenue, about a dozen councils nationwide are testing a plan to sell only the six most popular varieties of their famous cookies.

Lovers of Thin Mints and Do-si-dos should not worry about those cookies going away. But as part of a so-called Super 6 pilot program, the Dulce de Leche and Thank You Berry Much will not be available along with several other varieties.

Also this year, a number of councils, including some from Chicago, have raised the price of a box to $4.
