60 years of biscuits
March is the time when Girl Guides sell their infamous biscuits, and local girls will be having stalls across the Franklin area to make sure the community doesn’t miss out on these delicious treats.
This year is extra special as it marks 60 years of selling Guide Biscuits in New Zealand.
GirlGuiding New Zealand says their biscuits are just as good now as they were when first sold in 1957.
Chief Executive Susan Coleman says the recipe for the original Guide biscuit is still basically the same since it was developed and sold in large square tins 60 years ago.
“We have met the demands of our modern market for chocolate and mini varieties, but the old favourites have stayed original. The recipe has hardly changed and local company Griffins still make them.”
“Guide Biscuits are easily the largest girl-led business in New Zealand. The girls help decide where to sell them, manage the money and develop people skills and positive business ethics”.
Just as they did 60 years ago, the profits from biscuit sales will go back into opportunities for girls across New Zealand through GirlGuiding.
Local Girl Guides have stalls in the area, including several in Waiuku and Pukekohe. 
The girls will be based at Waiuku New World
on Saturday 25 March from 9am to 3pm.
In Pukekohe, the girls will have also a stall outside Paper Plus Saturday 25 March
