I went with the family to Panera for lunch yesterday after church. As we were walking back to our cars, I happened to notice that the Girl Scouts occupied a strategic position in the shopping plaza - within a few yards of a Weight Watchers.

they held me at cookie point in front of walmart.

That actually seems tacky. I would avoid their stand just for that as I'm sure most others were.

Nobody ever mentions the lovely wreeths that the boy scouts sell. Crappy tradition.

Everyone always raves about thin mints but you know what? Those lemonades are the shit.

Yes, the Girl Scouts sent their evil minions to my house only yesterday to subvert me with 3 boxes of Thin Mints. And so, two 11-yr.-olds have completely derailed my nutrition strategy with nothing but smiles and unassuming green boxes.

Worst part is, I have two young daughters who will probably become Scouts in a few years.....can you say, "lifetime supply of thin mints"!

Back when I was in Boy Scouts, we used to sell popcorn, which was the tradition at the time.

We broke tradition, and started selling Sees Candy Bars for $1.00 each. The milk chocolate and the milk chocolate with almonds. Oooh, man, the one with almonds was amazing.

We made a lot more money that way. And, lets be honest...the popcorn sucked, anwyay.

3 boxes of the devil's cookie (thin mints) are in my freezer as we speak.

I was duped by a troop a couple of weeks ago. I bought what I thought were Tagalongs and Samoas...

When I got home, I read them carefully...I had bought Peanut Butter Patties and Caramel DeLites...

I was like WTF!?!?!?

A little google and wiki combined showed me that there are actually 2 bakeries licenses to make GS Cookies. One of them makes Samoas...and the other calls the same cookie Caramel DeLites. This would normally be OK with me, but THEY DON"T TASTE THE SAME!!!

I will never fall for that crap again.

got 2 boxes of Samoas in my desk right now. I dont dare open them because they'll be gone in two days.
Link Posted: 3/8/2010 11:23:08 AM EDT
Forget your thin mints samoas are the best. My roommates neice is a girl scout and had her get me a full case of the crack laced goodness. Sad thing is I'm thinking about buying another

It's a fundraiser, man. They're not trying to compete with Nabisco, or anything.

They tried in the Chicago market. It failed.

Whatever happened to the camp fire mints? Haven't seen them in 20 years, used to love those things.
Link Posted: 3/8/2010 11:35:32 AM EDT
I do love me some thin mints, but had to turn them down yesterday, as this past weekend I started dieting...

Really. I once went through a whole box of Thin Mints during my lunch break.

You gotta raise your game, kid. Come on, open 'em!

Isn't that the truth... I can wipe out a box of those things in about a half hour, all the while trying to get control of myself.

Two weeks ago, while headed to The Range for some proficiency practice, I saw some Girl Scouts and their Moms selling some Girl Scout Cookies. I didn't exactly have the money to spare, but I still bought 4 boxes of their yummy cookies. This weekend I saw some other Girl Scouts set up a table inside of a rather busy shopping mall. They were all out of the cookies I love to nom nom nom nom nom nom.
Link Posted: 3/8/2010 3:50:58 PM EDT
tag-a-longs are the devil!!

2 cookies = 25% of your daily fat.


WHo the fucking hell eats 2 fucking cookies?
Link Posted: 3/8/2010 3:59:39 PM EDT
They tagged me for 4 boxes when I was at Lowes.
Link Posted: 3/8/2010 4:04:28 PM EDT
I am addicted to tagalongs......thanks girls!!!
Link Posted: 3/8/2010 4:13:51 PM EDT
As a father who has a daughter in girl scouts let me tell all you people......... if you really work at it you can get tired of girl scout cookies. It takes some work and dedication but it can be done. I owe my daughter about $50.00 so far ( I have been afraid to ask her how much I owe her lately).


Keep heart it can be done where you can look at those innocent little faces and their tables of cookies, smile nicely at them, and say "thank you very much for asking but I am really all cookied out".

I hate the evil look they give you when you said you already bought some from someone else
