Finally, Jason Momoa has said something regarding the Girl Scout cookie boxes that were customized in his honor. At the start of the 2019 Girl Scout cookie-selling season, Colorado-based Girl Scout Charlotte Holmberg creatively rebranded her “Samoas” cookies as “Momoas” after putting a shirtless photograph of the “Aquaman” and “Game of Thrones” star on the box.
Shortly after, Holmberg went viral when she and the cookie boxes were featured on the Girl Scouts of Colorado’s Facebook and Instagram pages on February 13.
Since then, the story has gained enough footing to reach Momoa and Bonet on the Oscars red carpet. When asked about the Momoas by an Entertainment Tonight host, the actor reacted by expressing his love of Girl Scout cookies.
“I love Girl Scout cookies,” Momoa told Entertainment Tonight. “I was waiting to get some free ones. I’d love some.”
He also revealed his favorite flavor of the well-known cookies, which unexpectedly was neither the traditional Samoas nor the rebranded Momoas. “I want the shortbread,” he said. “And then you put those in the freezer and that’s the best way.”
Actress Lisa Bonet was a bit blunt about her husband’s cameo on the Girl Scout cookie boxes. “I think he just wants his cut,” Bonet joked.
Besides getting a Hollywood mention, Holmberg has seen excellent success with her cookie sales.
A representative for Girl Scouts of America previously told INSIDER that Holmberg had since sold out of her one-of-a-kind Momoas. And in 2018, Holmberg was named a “Cookie CEO” after selling over 2,000 boxes of cookies.
But this year, she can credit her success, at least in part, to eagerness from one particular target audience. Holmberg told Denver’s 9News: “The moms are getting really excited and are saying they need them!”
The Girl Scouts of America representative previously told that Holmberg’s efforts will go to a praiseworthy cause. She and her troop will designate the earnings from their cookie sales “to give back locally,” as per the representative.
They will be “donating the money to enable Colorado girls in need to afford to become Girl Scouts, as well as collecting thousands of school supplies for students in need,” the representative said.
Representatives for Girl Scouts of America did not immediately respond to INSIDER’s request for comment.
