Unless you've been living under a rock for the last decade, then you'll know that Jason Mamoa is a pretty big deal. Ever since he came to prominence in Game of Thrones, Mamoa has been the apple of many eyes. Not only is he a beautiful specimen of a man, but he's also an incredibly nice guy. His most recent role as Aquaman has proven that he is one of the most marketable stars out there. We know it, he knows it, and even a fifth-grade Girl Scout from Colorado knows it.
Little Charlotte Holmberg scooped the title of Top Cookie CEO when she rebranded her boxes of Samoas as "Mamoas" according to POPSUGAR. The local radio station picked the story, detailing how the child's mother got the idea from a post on Facebook that showed an edited picture of the actor on a box of cookies.
With a little creativity, the fictional picture became the key to selling copious amounts of the sweet nibbles.

It wasn't an easy task though. As other Girl Scouts were out on the streets literally hauling their cookies, the mother-daughter combo spent hours printing out images of Mamoa and gluing them onto boxes, with no real idea if it was going to work or not. Thankfully, it did. "The moms are getting really excited, and they're saying that they need them," said Charlotte.
Girl Scout cookies have been an institution for years. According to NBC News, the snacks bring around $700 million dollars worth of revenue a year, with 200 million boxes sold annually. 25% of the proceeds go to bakeries, while the remaining money goes directly to the local council to support different projects in the area.
Thin Mints are the most popular out of the available products, with and Caramel deLites and Samoas coming in a close second. Now they've been given the Mamoa makeover; they may just clinch the top spot. With only a limited time to earn as much as they can, we wouldn't be surprised if more Scouts try this genius idea.
