Ode To The Girl Scout Cookie

7 Jan

Just in time for our New Year’s resolutions of losing weight, eating healthier, and getting fit – Girl Scout cookies went on sale this week! As if we didn’t eat enough sweets during the holiday season, right? That’s OK though, because nothing will stand between my and a Samoa.

Oh, how I love them. I also love the Tagalongs, the Do-si-dos, the Thin Mints…

This year, in honor of 100 years of Girl Scouting they are introducing a new cookie for us to stuff our faces with for us to enjoy called Savannah Smiles. It will be a lemon flavored cookie, and if it’s anything like the rest of the Girl Scout cookies it will be just as delicious and habit-forming.

On a side note, does anyone remember that little gem of a movie Savannah Smiles from 1982? What a great flick! I kind of want to watch it again now. Thanks, Girl Scouts!

Chances are you are already on top of where and how to buy your Girl Scout cookies, but if you need help tracking down one of the little cookie pushers go here to locate your nearest Girl Scout council. They will be able to help you seek out the sugary goodness.

    Can’t get enough of the Samoas. I even figured out how many i could have a day on Weight Watchers. *sigh*

      Oohh, smart thinking! I don’t think I have the will power to limit myself to only a couple a day. Now maybe a couple in a serving, several servings a day… 😉

    I enjoyed your post – had been thinking of doing one about the anniversary cookie myself. It would be a contrast from one I did last year! You might be interested in reading it. – http://pbenjay.wordpress.com/2011/03/31/girl-scout-coo…yre-baaacckkkk/
    And you’re dead on about the timing of their appearance this month, known for dieting starts.
