They're 4.00 a box, and the varieties are described here:

Delivery to Michigan would be problematic as we're not *supposed*to ship them (official doctrine, I think it's because of the risk of product damage in transit). But if you truly want them sent to someone there, we can figure something out. Postage might make it non-cost-effective, however.

Depending on where they're to go, I might be able to help you locate a local source.

Your area probably gets them from ABC Bakers (http://abcsmartcookies.com/cookies.asp).

A bit of trivia:
The "big five" (Trefoils, Thin Mints, Samoas, Do-Si-Dos, and Tagalongs) are national, though ABC Bakers has different names for the Samoas / Do-Si-Dos / Tagalongs. Also the cookie shape is slightly different for the Samoas / Caramel Delights and possibly for the Thin Mints.. The other 3 varieties can change from year to year and are different among the two suppliers.

I'm glad yours have held to 3.50 a box, though I'm surprised it's held up that long - ours have been 4.00 a box since 2 years ago.

Thanks for posting that - I'd forgotten about it. If you use it, check shortly before heading out, as troops can cancel booths if they don't have cookies to sell.
