The 2018 Girl Scout cookie-selling season officially kicked off in January, and Girl Scouts have been busy slinging Thin Mints and Samoas across the United States ever since. And one cookie salesperson who you might run into may totally surprise you: Jennifer Garner, actress and mom, apparently moonlights as a troop leader and was out selling cookies last weekend.
Garner, who is mother to 12-year-old Violet, nine-year-old Seraphina and five-year-old Samuel, shared a picture on Instagram on Sunday of herself outside a grocery store. In the pic, she holds up a sign advertising all the Girl Scout available for purchase. “Why yes, kind sir, we do have Thin Mints,” she captioned the image, making it a post to which any Girl Scout mom could instantly relate.
This isn’t the first time Garner has talked about her enthusiasm for the 105-year-old organization. “I’ve been the room mom for pre-school and kindergarten this year, and I’m a Girl Scout troop leader for third grade,” Garner told People in 2015. “When I’m home, I dive in [and] I try to Betty Crocker it up as much as I can.”
Here’s Garner’s latest snapshot of her Girl Scout cookie leadership:
Garner has also elaborated on the business techniques she was teaching the Girl Scouts under her wing. “I’m the one telling the girls, you know, ‘Try to talk about the gluten-free because they’re a dollar more.’ Let’s have an up-sell!” she told “Live with Kelly and Ryan.”
In October last year, Garner shared another great peek at her life as a Girl Scout troop leader, posting a sleepy selfie on Instagram as she took a scout out to pee at 4 a.m. during a San Diego Zoo overnight trip:
Can any other moms out there relate to Garner’s Girl Scout troop leader life? Being the group’s chaperone and a ruthless cookie seller isn’t for everyone, but it’s clearly a role she enjoys.
