The Girl Scout Cookie Diet….it works!!

For real!  I couldn’t believe it.  But going on a Girl Scout Cookie Diet really works. And buying the boxes of cookies at the current price (in New York) of $4 a box, definitely is cheaper than other diet fads.  Whaaaaaa?   How can this be true?!

The Girl Scout Cookie Diet worked exactly the way my husband said it would. And the way I was afraid it would.  I got fatter.  For real.  I gained weight.  *sigh*

And I had high hopes.  As I was devouring a sleeve of Thin Mints at work the other day, I said to my friend “Is it bad that it looks like I’m going to wipe out this entire sleeve of Thin Mints?”  He said it was okay, as long as I didn’t read the box.  And you better believe that I didn’t look at that bad boy.

Realistically speaking,  Girl Scout Cookies are like coffee cake.  Flour, eggs, salt, sugar and butter are all ingredients in coffee cake.  So there you have fiber, protein and calcium.  Hellooooooooo……that’s nutrition.  And one eats coffee cake for breakfast, so no matter what time of day you eat the cookies, it is like eating coffee cake.  One could posit then, that by definition, Girl Scout Cookies should be eaten for breakfast.

Hold up, hold up there.  Has anyone ever eaten a doughnut?  Or a Cinnabon? What’s on the outside?  Icing!  or Chocolate!  or  Coconut!!  Have you ever eaten a doughnut for breakfast?  OF COURSE YOU HAVE.  Or Dunkin’ Donuts, Tim Hortons, and other establishments wouldn’t exist.  Cinnabon?  The number of customers entering a mall would drop significantly if people didn’t go to Cinnabon.

The obvious conclusion is that not only do Girl Scout Cookies provide a major source of nutrition, it is imperative that they be eaten for breakfast.

    Thank you. I’ve been telling people that for years as I have had those cookies for breakfast and no one has listened. I’m going to print out your post as proof. Thank you again.

    This is the most logical and rational explanation I’ve read for eating a certain food in a long time. Send some girl scout cookies my way!

    I still have Girl Scout cookies from the eighties in my freezer. I guess I thought someday they’d be vintage GS cookies. Think I should sell them on e-Bay? ; )

    HA! Some little liar that I gave birth to just told me that I wouldn’t let them eat cookies until 10am and they were only allowed 3! Shhhhh……..don’t tell her that I had different rules for me.

  6. I love the thin mint cookies but haven’t had any in a long time. I think they may have stopped selling them in Canada.

    I totally agree, and those little minty morsels of chacalately good wafer-ness are the BOMB (is that still hip to say or has Bill C-51 ruined it?). I used to buy them buy the half dozen, with every intention of putting some in the freezer…they never made it that far.
