It’s officially Girl Scout cookie season! You know what that means: boxes upon boxes of your favorite sweet treats.

Whether you’re a fan of Thin Mints, Tagalongs, or Samoas, almost everyone loves Girl Scout cookies. Even if you don’t like the cookies, chances are you know someone in your life who sells them.

And if you think it’s just the Girl Scouts who sell them, you’re mistaken — their families often play a huge role in selling the iconic cookies.

Actress Jennifer Garner proved just how involved parents are in selling these cookies when she posted a photo on Instagram of herself outside a grocery store on February 11, 2018.

The mom of three held up a sign advertising the cookies that her daughters — 12-year-old Violet and 9-year-old Seraphina — were selling.

Of course, the best part about the picture is the man who recognized Jennifer and pointed straight at her. Jennifer took the moment in stride, though, and she captioned the photo, “Why yes, kind sir, we do have Thin Mints.”

This is definitely one of those “Celebrities: they’re just like us!” moments. Hats off to Jennifer and all the other parents out there helping their kids sell cookies on the weekend.
