LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Girl Scout cookies purchased in Orange County are different from ones bought in Los Angeles County.

That’s according to a Carol Dedrich of the Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles, who told KNX 1070 that two bakers are used: ABC Bakers and Little Brownie Bakers.

Dedrich says the use of the two bakers ensures that should something go awry with one, all councils don’t suffer.

“The Girl Scouts cookie program is called a program because we teach girls business skills. So, part of the business skill that we are teaching them is to be wise about how we set up business for products,” Dedrich said. “It’s a very, very, very smart business model.”

According to Dedrich, ABC Bakers are utilized in Orange County, while Little Brownie Bakers are used in Los Angeles County.

“The Thin Mints, although they are called the same, are a little bit different,” Dedrich said. “They’re very similar. Of course, each baker has their own recipe that they feel is the best recipe around, and they each have their following.”
