I always do this (have for years) and it's always a good thing.  I do it when I see boy scouts selling popcorn as well.  I even do it at bake sales.  They have to be nice since I'm a potential customer, so they get to have an experience with a nice vegan person and hear a little info that try can later check out on line.  Planting seeds...

Thank you, JVon!!

I did the same thing recently. I think it's a very effective way to reach kids because they have a natural curiosity about these things. (It also works when the Boy Scouts are selling their candy and junk food outside the supermarket :)

Subject: [bouldervegans] Girl Scouts are back!

Hi friends!  I noticed the Girl Scouts are back in town selling their cookies that are not vegan so here's an easy way to have a simple yet dramatic effect on the young ones about the animal abuse caused by the industry.
When you see the girl scouts at the stores selling their cookies ask the girls if they have any vegan cookies.  Chances are they do not know what that means and ask say "whats that?".  Then ask them, "Are your cookies animal friendly?", chances are they will ask their adult ambassador who will have to say "no our cookies are not vegan".  Then you can say "Well I guess they are not animal friendly then, so sorry I have to pass.".  This will provide an entry to an informative discussion where the ambassador will have to explain what "Vegan" means to the kids and then the kids will relate the word to being animal friendly and thus hopefully they will gain interest because I think every youngster has a strong connection to animals.
I did that exact thing yesterday at King-Poop-Scoop and it felt great.
Have a great day!  ~J
