Savannah cookie controversy makes 'Jeopardy!'

Posted: Updated:

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - A cookie controversy from Savannah's recent past made for sweet trivia for contestants on the game show "Jeopardy!"

The show's final clue Thursday was: In 2011 the city of Savannah granted an exemption allowing the sale of these items outside Juliette Gordon Low's birthplace. Two contestants gave the correct response: What are Girl Scout Cookies?

The Savannah Morning News reports Fran Harold, director of the downtown Savannah birthplace of the Girl Scouts' founder, says she was called to the television by her husband as he screamed, "You're on Final Jeopardy!"

Savannah made headlines in 2011 when a zoning administrator blocked Girl Scouts from selling cookies outside the Low house, saying they had violated a city ordinance banning sidewalk sales. City Hall granted an exemption after being widely criticized.
