    Mmm, thin mints were ALWAYS my favorite, though I had to go gluten-free 3 years ago so, sniff, no more thin mints for me.

    I use to love them but they’ve changed!! They taste plasticy to me. Thin mints are still good.

    DH gets so excited about girl scout cookies, he thought he missed out on them this year because we haven’t seen any at the grocery store but I heard they don’t start selling them until March where we live. Also, I let him know they other day that in the news, girl scouts will now accept debit/credit…it made his day.

    @PennyLainne said, here in Canada we only get chocolate mint in the fall and vanilla and chocolate in the spring.

    But I LOVE the vanilla/chocolate packages!  My mom was involved in Guiding (as was I) and she buys a CASE every spring out of obligation to old friends.  She doesn’t even like them, just wants to be supportive, so she always gives them away.  2 years ago, my wee face was on the box (they used a very old picture from when I was a Brownie)!

    *For the non-Canuck bees, “Brownies” is a group for girls who aren’t old enough to be “Girl Guides” (Likewise, “Sparks” comes before Brownies, and after Girl Guides there are “Pathfinders” and “Rangers” and who knows what else).  🙂

    I can’t find any girlscouts out in the area selling cookies 🙁

    I’d be buying up boxes of thin mints and samoas for after the wedding and honeymoon!

    Mmm I love thin mints! My boyfriend and I bought them one morning from a cute little girl that came by with her family to sell some cookies, I devoured over half the box by midnight when he got home.. 


    I now call them guilt scout cookies because while laying in bed, feeling my belly all full and whatnot, I told my boyfriend that “those girl scout cookies really know how to make a girl feel guilty” and he hasnt let me live it down.

    Can I just be honest here and admit that I don’t completely understand the appeal of GSC?  I mean sure, it’s nice to support a great organization for kids, but are the cookies really THAT delicious?

    I love Samoas and Tagalongs. I was a Girl Scout when I was younger and lots of the cookie names have changed now (or new cookies were added) so those are like two out of the four names I even recognized. I don’t remember the last time I actually bought some. My mom does buys them from people at work and then gives them to me. We live right down the street from a Girl Scout center, so we could just go there, but that’s too much work. Hehe.

    @KristenGotMarried:  To be honest, no, Toll House has a duplicate for almost everything they make and they are almost identical.

    @PitBulLover:  They have an educational program that starts for third graders that I find unacceptable and put together by a group that I deplore.  I will not go into details as it is not a popular opinion, but I am one to stick to my guns on those types of things therefore I will give the GS not a dime until they disconnect from the group.  I will say that a good friend had her daughter in GS until they started that program in her troup and I have seen it so it is not a rumor, hear say, or internet bs.
