Darn those Girl Scouts and their Thin Mints

Once a year, the Girl Scouts set up shop in the foyer of our local grocery store. They stack up boxes and boxes of cookies, put on their sashes, smiles, and best manners. I try to resist, but I just can’t!

I must have the cookies!

Last year, my husband mistakenly brought home some peanut butter sandwich cookies. I wanted Peanut Butter Patties. They are soooo not the same. Peanut Butter Patties are covered in chocolate. The sandwiches are not. The Patties are my favorites!

Coming in a close second are the Thin Mints. When I was a Girl Scout, I think there were lots more Thin Mints per box. Also, each box was much cheaper back then. Yes, the cookies are expensive. Yes, they are not good for me. But I just can’t help it!

This is embarrassing, but I just did a line of Thin Mints. I tried to stop, but I couldn’t, and before I knew it, the whole tube was empty. Darn those Girl Scouts and their tiny, delicious, overpriced cookies!

  • LOL I avoid the places they lurk this time of year. And I’m ever so thankful that I have a new job where no one has children of Girl Scout Cookie age. Yeah, I can do a line of Thin Mints and not even notice it happened.

  • Mine are Tagalongs. Hmm, diet? Maybe after I finish this row, oh, wait, you can’t leave just 4 in the box, they’d get loney, just eat them to tidy up a bit…

    🙁 Grrrr, it’s the Girl Scouts fault. (FYI, I saw Girl Scout cookie ice cream last night, seriously now!)

  • I love the PB patties…formerly known as Tagalongs (why must they change names every year?). I like to try the new things, but the Thin Mints and PB Patties are the mainstays.

    And I have found that Kroger’s Private Selection PB Patties are VERY much the same as the GS cookies. Same with the Thin Mints…Keebler’s “Grasshoppers” are the same….

  • I am so weak for thin mints! There is no defense system created that will keep me from them!

  • Thin mints are my favorite. They’re even better if you freeze them.

  • Thin Mints are the best kinds!!! I always do a line at a time when I have them in my house! I have to buy in twos so half can sit in the cupboard for me and half can be frozen for hubby!

  • I totally understand—I did a “line” myself the other night! (lol!) They are addictive little cookies, aren’t they?

  • I think it is a well known fact that those devious little Girl Scouts have added some highly addictive ingredients into those cookies. I thought that if I froze them I would be able to resist..but instead I found myself gnawing on a frozen thin mints in the middle of the night like a starved animal.
