Guam Diner Bytes: Girl Scouts Cookies
Dear Guam Food Guy reader,
January is coming to a close and I can already tell that 2013 is going to be a fantastic year for Guam and our neighboring sister islands in the CNMI. Tourism has leaped back into the forefront of our economic activities and we are seeing record growth in our visitors. On Guam we are experiencing a room capacity challenge, which means we don’t have enough rooms to meet the demand. We are essentially turning away tourist bookings because of our shortfall. It’s a good problem to have and we need a solution.
Today’s newsletter will feature a few dining experiences on Saipan, where I spent two days and was able to finally do my “power walk” along the scenic Beach Road Pathway. I’d not walked since Jan. 2 when I had my accident! Not being able to burn calories has cost me dearly, and I’ve gained about 6 lbs.! I was motivated to walk and it was such a beautiful morning I made sure I got out and enjoyed a brisk walk along this gorgeous seaside walkway. Wouldn’t it be great if Guam could have one of these? Let’s put this on our future island wish list!!
Guam Girl Scouts Cookies Are Here!
It’s cookie time! During a recent press conference held on MLK Day the Guam Girl Scouts officially launched this year’s Girl Scout Cookie sales and proclaimed that a new sales record had been set! The results were astonishing, with a sales increase of 25.8 percent over last year’s record sales results. This year 92,569 boxes were sold!!! A new cookie flavor, Mango Cremes, was introduced. It is one of the first to have a label stating the cookies are made “with Nutrifusion”. I’m still waiting for my cookie order to be delivered!
