Charlotte McCourt believes that honesty is the best policy – that’s why she wrote astonishingly blunt reviews of every Girl Scout cookie for her customers.
The 11-year-old gave the Do Si Do cookie a 5 out of 10 score because of its “bland, unoriginal flavor”. Her most scathing 1/10 review was for the Toffeetastic; saying that it was “a bleak, flavorless, gluten-free wasteland”.
Now one might think that being 100% honest about a product you’re trying to sell isn’t the best method of making money. But as it turns out, Charlotte broke a Girl Scout cookie selling record.
Charlotte had been aiming to use this full-disclosure policy to help her sell at least 300 boxes. However, because customers were so intrigued by the Girl Scout’s honesty, she managed to sell over 23,000 boxes.
