The actress — who is mom to Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 5 — revealed that she spends her weekends like many other parents this time of year, posting a photo of herself pushing the popular cookies outside of a grocery store.
“Why yes, kind sir, we do have Thin Mints,” she captioned a candid snap on Instagram, in which she held a homemade sign advertising the treats. She also added the hashtags “#tistheseason,” “#comeandgetem” and “#whodoesntloveagirlscout.”
After selling the cookies outside the grocery store, Garner took to her Instagram story to announce she would be sending boxes to a few of her followers. “While my Girl Scout and Brownie have to sell their own cookies, I did buy a limited number of boxes from them to share with you guys,” she said. “So if you truly have no Girl Scout in your life, please send me your order and your address and I will try to hook you up.” (Unsurprisingly, she sold out of the boxes in mere minutes.)
In 2016, Garner revealed that she’s a true cookie salesperson at heart during an appearance on Live with Kelly and Michael.
“I’m the one telling the girls, you know, ‘Try to talk about the gluten free because they’re a dollar more.’ Let’s have an upsell!” she said.
The star also shared that she went through “intense” training to become a scout group leader, but when it comes to selling cookies, most buyers aren’t phased by the fact that the celebrity is there.
“Nobody cares,” she said. “I’m just there with the troop.”
