Cookie...Crack...Same Difference


I have suspicions that Girl Scout Cookies might indeed be chalked full of Crack.  That's right.  Show me a person that can eat just one....I'll wait.  I could slam a full, half, 3/4 sleeve of Thin Mints without batting an eyelash.  Most people can, that's common knowledge.  So what do they put in there?  My triad pal Marjorie asked me if they put real girl scouts in the cookies, to which I replied, of course, how else do they get that minty flavor.  It might not be far off people.
Spent more time on the picture than the post.

I may as well tell you that my daughter is a girl scout, so we consumed way more cookies than I have in a lifetime.  In fact, I think I'm over them.  The mere site of the box either makes me start dry heaving, or instinctively having some kind of cookie Mom anxiety attack, wherein I nervously look around for anyone who has $3.50 and hasn't bought 5 boxes already.

Naturally cookie time happens dead winter, so you are stuck inside, eating comfort food and washing said comfort food down with 3-9 Samoas.  Somebody is fattening me up.  I'm not taking responsibility for this.  Wait the first step is admitting I have a problem?  Well my problem isn't cookies anymore; my problem is the extra 5 pounds of hydrogenated oil lurking on the butt-thigh region.  

Oh, and a super special shout out to mother nature for having spring come especially early while I don't fit into any of my Capri's and am crying at the thought of buying a swim suit.  

So, what's your favorite Girl Scout cookie?

Oh and would you like to buy a box? (Just kidding, cookie sales are over; thank you, Jesus, thank you)


This "post" if you will, is brought to you by the letter, "C" from the A-Z Blogging Challenge, as well as procrastination.

  1. My Hula had her first cookie freak out this year over those ones with the caramel bits in them (blue box). I myself will get stabby over some tagalongs!

    1. Dulche De Leche. Yes, good stuff. AND, I might have a few boxes of Tagalongs if you'd like them, I don't like them, my least favorite, so they'll be in the freezer until next year. Hit me up.

  2. Well being that our cookie time just passed and I hated every minute of it, seeing those cookies made me feel a bit ill. I'm done with GS cookies at least until next year.

    1. Oh, really? Next year, huh? Maybe it'll only be 4 degrees instead of negative 20 when you sell outdoors next year.

  3. My daughter texted me to say..."Oh, by the way. Did the girl scout cookies, that I ordered, come yet? "
    My answer..."what cookies?"

    1. I do. I think we mistakenly ate someone's box of thin mints. Total oversight.

  4. Girl scout cookie are crack... thank goodness they only sell them once a year. That response will change when I am out of the ones in my freezer - then I will complain that they should sell them full time.

  5. My fav time of year is when the GS cookies come out! We always get Thin Mints for me, the little Cinnamon things for my baby-kins, Samoas for my hubs, & Peanut Butter yum-yum-goodness for my big boy. We do share sometimes, but we are each sworn to ONE box of our individual fav to devour as we please. Usually gone before we get home from the grocery story. *not ashamed*

    1. No shame, anyone who says otherwise is a liar.

  6. Samoas are my weakness. Like Nessa said, good thing they're only available once a year!

    1. I do have a weakness for them as well. Yeah good thing, unless your kid sells them and you buy more than you should and your freezer looks like a gs cookie warehouse.
