It’s Girl Scout Cookie Time

Girl Scout Thin MintsThanks to Kristie’s daughter, who is a Brownie, I have just received my annual fix of Girl Scout cookies. In past years, cookie orders came in just in time for me to bring a couple boxes to spring training to share with my Red Sox friends. This year, my co-workers get the honor.

Girl Scout LemonadesI must always buy a box of Thin Mints, the quintessential Girl Scout cookie. The second box varies from year to year. This year, it’s Lemonades, shortbread cookies imprinted with a lemon slice pattern and frosted on the bottom with a lemony icing. Neither of these is low-fat or low-calorie. One Thin Mint, which is about 1 3/4″ diameter and a little more than 1/4″ thick, has 2 grams of fat and 40 calories. One Lemonade, about 2 3/4″ diameter, is 75 calories with 3 1/2 grams of fat. But as any Girl Scout cookie lover knows, it is impossible to have just one or two of these cookies at a time. That’s why I always bring them somewhere to share. The last thing I need is two boxes of Girl Scout cookies added to my butt.
