"Did you know that you can pay for the cookies but not take delivery yourself? What you buy can be shipped to our military in Iraq or Afganastan by the manufacturer. You pay nothing extra. Sales are going on now. Please consider buying some for our military members if you don't want them yourself. Elziabeth"
