No, it’s not a new flavor or a blind taste test. It’s a delightful cookie incentive from Little Brownie Bakers in 1994:

That makes me think that it was an incentive for Volunteers. But who knows, there may be girls out there who love switchplates.

This exciting new addition to the Nation’s Capital archival collection is on display (and in use!) at our Frederick Archives and History Program Center.

This is one artifact that you can definitely touch!

One response to “Cookie Switch?”

  1. If I remember correctly there was a time where decorating your own switch plate was all the craze. A different and personal idea for crafts and a way tp promote GS. I think it was around the same time. Very nice and interesting item.
