A Wagon Full of Girl Scout Cookies


Wednesday, February 05, 2014

Coming back from one of my walks yesterday, I turned the corner to my door and WHAMO-two sweet little girl scouts were waiting for me with a large wagon piled high with boxes of cookies they were selling.

The first words out of my mouth? A polite "no thank you." Talk about triggers, those mints have always been a mega-sugar high. Not this year.

Wishing all a happy, healthy day.

    Wow, you resisted thin mints good job! If I came across Girl Scouts with their peanut butter & chocolate cookies (Tagalongs) I'd have a hard time saying no!

    Good for you and what a show of pure will power!!! emoticon
I have nieces who sell them and brothers that remind me that they bought GS cookies from my daughter. emoticon So I buy them and send them with either my son or husband. This year I may have to give some to the granddaughter as well! emoticon I don't dare keep them in the house!! emoticon emoticon

    Being a girl scout in my younger years...those thin mints are still my favorite! I wish they would sell them in the fall or spring so I can work them off outside!

    This year, I'm asking the girls what their favorite is, and buying a box for them. That way, I can still support my students, but not be tempted myself.

    WTG!!! I say no thank you and add that I would like to make a donation instead.
I used to sell those cookies and know how addictive they are.

    I used to be a G.S. so I would buy a box of each kind. I had to stop years ago but they are great cookies.

    A phenomenal, epic display of the might of your willpower muscle - congratulations, Jesse! Those dear little girls with those legendary cookies :::swoon::: never fail to grab my attention whenever I see them clustered around the grocery-store, door. My "no, thank you" has become reflexive, but I've gotta admit: IT DIDN'T COME EASILY! You cleared a real hurdle there... emoticon

I didn't know they let them go door to door anymore. Around here they are parked in front of most stores selling them. I haven't come across any yet, but I did read a Spark article on the best and worst ones.

    Oh My! You did good saying no thank you!! Such bravery!!
Thin mints! My ex used to buy 3 or 4 cases (Yes CASES) of them and store them in the deep freeze. However, I was not afraid of the deep freeze. Often I would go to the freezer and get a box. I would polish off a whole row bag of thin mints within a half hour. I had NO restraint. After eating them you would think I was high on crack cocaine (although I've never tried crack) or amphetamines. It would take like 12 or 14 hours before the hyperactive effects would wear off. But I did get a lot of work done after I stuffed myself with Thin Mints. I did this often.
I could go for a box right now. Kitchen spring cleaning is in full force at my house!

    Good going. Unfortunately for me, my girl scout is my granddaughter. Lucky for me, DH likes a type of GSC that I detest. He buys three boxes and I ignore them!

    I just smile and say- not today, thanks.
I think last year was the first year in about 30 yrs that I did not buy 4-5 boxes.

  They were selling them at my daughter's dance class. She is way past that age but the younger kids were there. I was able to resist. I am feeling too good losing weight too slip back now.
