Forget Klondike bars. The most irresistible dessert in America – at least during this time of year – is the Girl Scout cookie. Everyone has their favorite flavor: mine is Tagalongs, aka Peanut Butter Patties. My friend Lane Moore loves Samoas, also called Caramel DeLites. She wrote about her unending desire for the gooey treats in a post on Jezebel called “The Emotional Cost of Girl Scout Cookies,” in which she revealed something I was shocked to hear.
A 31-year-old woman in Florida was jailed recently for hitting her roommate in the face, chasing her with scissors, striking her with a board, biting her in the breast (hello?!) and hitting her with a sign. What exactly made this grown woman lose it? Her roommate ate her Thin Mints. (As Charlie Sheen would say, “Winning. Duh.”)
As Moore points out in her piece, Girl Scout cookies are not available online, though the Scouts do have a hunger-inducing, cookie-introducing website you can drool over if you like. But if you want to order, you’ll have to wait until a girl in green comes knocking on your door (or her Mom/Dad posts her order form on your office bulletin board). Lucky for me, my mother lives right next door to a Girl Scout and a Brownie (mmm… brownies…) and we ordered several boxes. Now I’m just waiting for delivery! (Lane, I’ll share my Samoas with you, just ask. As a mom who breastfed, I know exactly how much it hurts to have a girl bite your boob.)
