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.
