RandomAnthony | 14536 comments So it's girl scout cookies season! Did you get in your order? What kind did you order? Is not the day the girl scout cookies arrive THE BEST DAY EVER???

Anyway, there are dueling moms at work selling girl scout cookies for their kids. I don't know about that. I don't want to have to pick allegiances so I bought from the girl across the street and told both work moms I already bought mine. I hate when people bug me to buy crap from their kids at work, even if they're selling girl scout cookies.

Thin mints are overrated, by the way. But the peanut butter ones...my god.

And have you ever checked the calorie counts on those cookies? I think the girl scouts might be responsible for the health care problems in America.

And...you?

Sarah | 13815 comments Girl scout cookie season shifts from state to state -- ours hasn't started yet I don't think...
I have the same dueling mom problem.
Around here, Edy's sometimes puts out a limited edition ice cream in 3 girl scout cookie flavors, all of which are excellent. Thin mint is chocolate mint ice cream with thin mints broken in it, then they also do the samoas with coconut and chocolate and caramel ribbons, and Tagalongs, with a peanut butter ribbon...
I love thin mints best.

Gus Sanchez (gussanchez) Since I'm eliminating sweets from my diet, I must decline Girl Scout cookies. Bummer!


message 4: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments Really? Girl scout cookie season varies? I had no idea.

Hm. Maybe that means if I traveled I could get girl scout cookies all year round.

But like Gus, I'm trying to be healthier...but damn, those cookies are like kryptonite...

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments The study doc brought his daughter's girl scout cookie form to our Thursday meeting last week.

I declined to order any.

I have a tendency to eat a box of girl scout cookies for dinner. There's no such thing as constraint with them.

What's funny is I was the one who suggested last year that he should bring the list to the meeting. :)

Matt | 819 comments It seems like we share many of the same former bad habits, RA. Did you ever do the thing where you go to eat one Girl Scout Cookie and then suddenly go "WTF?!" when you realize that half a sleave is gone?


message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

Thin Mints in the freezer = Awesome. You're crazy, RA.


message 8: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments Hell yes, Tadpole! Esp. the chocolate covered peanut butter ones...tagalongs...

message 9: by Matt (new)

Matt | 819 comments The tagalongs are good, but they usually put me in the mood for thin mints or dos-is-does.

I'm trying to figure out if that is coincidental or just cheesy webmaster humor that "OD" is contained in that link.

I was hooked on the samoa ice cream. I once ate almost an entire container on my own. It is the stuff of dreams.




shellyindallas Thin Mints are the best!

I heard that this year the cookies the Girl Scouts sell will have fewer in the box than previous years. Shitty economy = fewer cookies. Guess that's part of the sacrifice Obama is asking all of us to make.


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments My niece is a Girl Scout, and I've already placed my order for three boxes of Thin Mints, which will go in the freezer when I get them.
I don't care about any other cookie, Thin Mints are all I need!
If you don't want to inadvertently eat a whole roll of cookies in one sitting, do what I make myself do - get out the number of cookies you intend to eat, put them on a plate, and put the rest back in the freezer where you can't access them easily.


message 13: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments I don't understand the thin mint attraction. They taste like breath mints to me, not cookies.

If you freeze them...they do become slightly more edible.

And I voted for Obama, so he DAMN WELL BETTER NOT FUCK WITH MY COOKIES.


message 14: by Heidi (new)

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments I will say that they all (even the trefoils) make for decent pie crusts.

That's because you don't like chocolate and mint together, RA. More for me!



message 16: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments Hm...you're right, I do seem to have a general mint/chocolate aversion...never thought of that before...well observed, librarian...

message 19: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments Oh yeah...cookie porn. Imagine if they made the cookies that big. Just imagine it.




message 20: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 13815 comments I can't find any proof of what I said, but I'm fairly sure that it's true. It makes sense to make cookies all year long but rotate where they go to.
I did find this: "According to Girl Scouts of the USA spokeswoman Michelle Tompkins, as quoted in a 2009 New York Post article, the number of Thin Mints, Do-si-dos, and Tagalongs in each box will be reduced in 2009 due to the increasing costs of flour, baking oils, cocoa, and transportation. In addition, Lemon Chalet Cremes will be smaller."

When I worked at girl scout camps, we always got all the cookies from those councils that hadn't sold. There were rarely any Thin Mints, and usually only a precious few boxes of Samoas and Tagalongs. The counselors snagged all of those, and left the shortbread and other boring ones for the kids.

As if Samoas (or whatever they're called now) weren't fattening enough. We now need them super-sized?

MMMMMM. Samoas.




message 23: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 13815 comments But the Lemon Chalet cremes will be smaller. They're shrinking the cookies, not jumbo-sizing them, alas.


message 24: by Sandi (new)

Sandi (sandikal) It seems like there are fewer in a box each year too.


message 25: by Dan (new)

Dan Schwent (akagunslinger) I'm with RA on the thin mints issue. I taste mint every morning when I brush my teeth. I don't need it in cookie form.

My top girlscout cookies? Trefoils and Do-si-dos. Too bad there are only two servings per box.


message 26: by Heidi (new)

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments OMG, Sally!!! That gigantaur cookie is making me salivate!


message 27: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments high-fives Dan

Ok, you guys are totally ruining my normal get work done around 4 plan because usually nobody is online around 4.


message 30: by [deleted user] (new)

I hear ya Sally, I went to have a Wisdom tooth pulled, and when I came back it was like all heck (for the Pasadena kid) had broke loose - but in a good way.




message 31: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments My girl scout cookies (Tagalogs and Thin Mints) just arrived! I will try not to eat them all today. But no promises.


message 32: by Julie (new)

Julie | 568 comments I want girl scout cookies!!
I haven't seen any girl scouts around lately...don't they usually set up shop in front of grocery stores sometimes?
I have been reading this thread and now I am gonna dream about tagalongs and samoas...mmmmmmmm.


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments Yeah, I saw two groups of girl scouts selling cookies at Safeway yesterday, one group at each door. I would have bought some, but I've got 6 boxes on order with my niece Tiffany.

I want my cookies NOW!!!


message 34: by Lori (new)

Lori Anyone who doesn't think Thin Mints are the best cookie around needs to have their head examined! :)


message 35: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments puts head forth for examination

Be gentle.

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17315 comments Mod
I'll stand behind my earlier comment.

Samoas are the best. Thin Mints are for amateurs.


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments Wait, aren't Samoas the ones coated with that nasty coconut stuff? Eww...


message 38: by [deleted user] (new)

Samoas - EWW
Thin Mints - Eh

The chocolate covered peanut butter patties are for the professionals




message 39: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) | 24194 comments I'm with you Jim. Peanut butter rules (as long as there's no salmonella)


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments Eh, I'd rather have chocolate chips and peanut butter straight out of the jar. No cookie necessary!


message 41: by Félix (last edited Feb 22, 2009 05:23PM) (new)

Félix (habitseven) | 24194 comments OK, let's just toss the cookies. Wait ... I didn't mean it that way.

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17315 comments Mod
Yes, Jackie. Coated with delicious coconut and caramel. They are like heaven.


message 43: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments that's the one i like too sally. i like to hide a box (or 10) in my drawer at work and mete them out slowly

So that's what heaven is like. I've always wondered.




Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments Not MY heaven...


message 46: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) | 24194 comments I understand everybody gets their own version. Or something like that.


message 47: by Sally, la reina (new)

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17315 comments Mod
My heaven once was those lemoney goodness ones. But they stopped making them so I had to switch to caramel coconut.


message 48: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments i though heaven had bacon?


message 49: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) | 24194 comments Bacon-wrapped scallops for pour moi.


message 50: by Cosmic Sher (new)

Cosmic Sher (sherart) | 2234 comments Bacon for breakfast & Somoas for lunch! I think that leaves margharitas for dinner. Yes, a well rounded diet.
