Not So Thin Mints...


That is what the Girl Scouts of America should call them. There is nothing thin about 7 grams of fat and 150 calories per 4 (VERY small) cookies. They have been chillin' in the freezer, perfect temp for consumption. I have already had half a sleeve. Do I go ahead and finish the sleeve and do the same with the second tomorrow? It is so hard to stop once you start especially when a have whole new gallon of ice cold milk. Anyone else taking down sleeves of girl scout cookies?

Haha. I thought about devoting an entire blog entry on Thin Mints, but they just got a mention in mine several days ago also. Yes, they should be called "Fat Girl Mints" and then maybe we'd exercize some self control. I'm on Box #3. Very sad.

I don't even order them for that reason!!! I LOVE thin mints!! Good luck.

WHERE did you get those???? Please tell me I didn't miss out on ordering Thin Mints!! I will blow a fuse! I am going to start stalking neighborhoods for girl scouts if I have to! They are my absolute favorite, and my sister and I can easily finish a box in one sitting... no problem!!! Love them!

My students sold me cookies and brought them to school. Last week was stressful and I polished off a whole sleeve in one day... half at lunch and the other half at recess! Oh, my booty is definitely not a THIN mint!

i haven't gotten any yet, but when i do, they'll be gone in a flash. but i guess i better get them soon. when do they stop selling?

Tell your blog readers to case their local grocery store if they missed the girl scouts earlier. I bet we've got a few more weeks to go back for more!!

Oh, is it that time of year? I think it's time for mom to send a care package.

I like the Lemon Chillers and they weren't on the list this year. :-(

They are hands down my favorite girl scout cookies. Eat a sleeve at a time all the time (unfortunately)! Grasshoppers by Keebler are a good substitute in the off season..

i haven't made it out of the house enough to get any yet, but you better believe i'll be eating boxes and boxes or tagalongs. i'm on a chocolate krispy kreme kick right now--i've been driving to nashville just to get them and making jon bring them home from the store almost every night. i've eaten almost 10 dozen since i had the baby--i am not exaggerating. it is a REAL PROBLEM and i am fatter now than i was the day i came home from the hospital. my breastmilk is probably pure fat and sugar.
