Girl Scout Cookies


They are absolutely evil.  Yesterday I went to the store to grab a few things for our very low fat dinner, and as I was walking out the grocery store door, I had to pass a Girl Scout troop that had set up a little booth.  Chris and I's favorite is Tagalongs.  I mean, seriously.  Chocolate.  Peanut butter.  On a cookie!  It is just so good!  But I had some will power left in me and just got Thin Mints.  After reading the labels a bit, you can eat 4 Thin Mints for the price of 2 Tagalongs.  When I got home, I looked up the fat content on all Girl Scout cookies, and it looks like Daisy Go Rounds win in the low fat department.  Daisy Go Rounds?  What the heck are those?  So if you want a more traditional cookie, ya know, one that you remember from when you were a girl scout yourself, you can also go with a Do-Si-Do.  One serving is just 110 calories.   However, I will be enjoying my Thin Mints in moderation, thank you very much!

  3. I will willingly admit, that in the past (esp. during pregnancy) I have been known to eat an entire box in 1 day. Eek!
