Knock Knock – It’s Girl Scout Cookie Time!
Arguably one of the best days of the year is when you get a knock at your door and you open it to find a girl scout standing there with a cookie order form in hand. So if you haven’t already planned out how many boxes of Thin Mints you will need to get you through the year, I’d start making your list now, because the Girl Scouts are out pounding the pavement, and this year, there’s something new on the menu.
No worries, your Thin Mints, Samoas and Tagalongs haven’t gone anywhere but they have added a new cookie – Mango Creme, which is a vanilla and coconut sandwich style cookie with a mango creme filling.
Let’s be honest, the first box of girl scout cookies you open every year might last you an hour…might. But it’s totally fine because it only happens once a year, it’s completely justifiable. Tell you what…I won’t judge you if you don’t judge me, OK?
But just in case you are the type to feel super guilty after consuming an entire box of cookies in an hour, maybe the new Mango Creme will be a good option for you. The new cookie is said to be ‘vitamin enhanced’ with something called Nutrifusion. The cookie is infused with 15 percent of your daily intake of vitamin B1 per serving, there is slightly less fat than other cookies on the list, and they also contain 5 percent of the RDI of vitamins A,C,D,E, and B6. Does that make you feel better?
Me neither. But who cares? Girl Scout cookies rock and I fully intend to eat more than I should and be OK with it. Bring on the Thin Mints!
