Think about all the places where it would be easy to sell chocolate bars . . .  Church, school, sporting events, work, family gatherings. Or give them as gifts to teachers, coaches, classmates, and friends. 
You need just $48 for one box of chocolate bars (1.5 oz.) 
Plan ahead for the expense for Heritage and other popular scouting activities.
