It's Girl Scout cookie season and a 98-year-old woman is back on the beat slinging the delicious morsels.
Veronica "Ronnie" Backenstoe has been donning the green beret, sash and signature skirt for 88 years, honing her salesmanship since the time of the Great Depression.
"I became a Girl Scout in 1932!" Ronnie told WMFZ-TV on Tuesday. "I said, 'When can I be a Girl Scout?' My mom said, 'When you're 10,' so when I was 10, I was ready to go!"
She confided her favorite cookies are Peanut Butter Patties now, having replaced Thin Mints on her palate's top spot list. But back when she started, there were only three different flavors and each box was a whopping 15 cents.
At 98 years YOUNG, Ronnie Backenstoe is still selling Girl Scout Cookies. She's even part of a troop! https://t.co/0NhvE0yqDm ❤️
Ronnie worked her way up the ranks of the organization, becoming director at Camp Mosey Wood in the Poconos and a field director for several counties. Her adventures as scout leader took her to such places as Jamaica and Switzerland.
"I don't know if you ever tried to get in a uniform in a pup tent," Ronnie quipped to the outlet. "I did. It's not easy!"
Being a Girl Scout became a way of life for Ronnie.
"I think that it was just part of living, and that's what really girl scouting is, it teaches you how to live," Ronnie told said.
