Bad News, Your New Favorite Girl Scout Cookies Are the Worst For You
They're so easy to eat, how could they possibly be bad for you?
Girl Scout cookie season is intense. First, there's the wondering... when does it start? When will my niece call me? Then, the ordering, followed by the waiting.
Sometimes the waiting seems to last months, when really it's just a few weeks. Those Girl Scouts know how to get the cookies in your hands quickly.
Then they arrive and you immediately eat an entire sleeve or box of your favorites. So far I've done that twice, with Thin Mints.
Obviously the first day I got both of the boxes, seriously there should be a way to make your first sleeve calorie free.
Unfortunately, there is not. But, if you want to eat your cookies and feel less guilty, here's the rankings of Girl Scout cookies according to calories and fat.
Super unfortunately, the new delicious S'mores cookies are the worst for you... though one could argue they are sandwich cookies so they're higher calorie count is expected.
