LOL! Oh I can so relate. Sadly.

scribbit said...

Excuse me ma'am, but those appear to be EMPTY Girl Scout Cookie boxes. Am I right?

I'm jealous.

Chase said...

Um. I must confess that I only have a handful of my Thin Mints left. And I just got them 3 days ago.

Thank god I left my Samoas and Cafe Cookies in Tulsa. (I'm going back in 2 weeks...wonder how long it'll take me to scarf those down, too?!)

Nancy said...

Thankfully, we did not buy any cookies this year. However, you already know about my Ben and Jerry's dilemma. ;-)

Mona said...

I always get accosted at the grocery store. My reply to miss entrepreneur -in-pigtails is, "I'm not buying them until you put the trans fat back in!"

Shuts them up every time.

Heather said...

I made a mistake or THEY did but I only got one box of the beloved Tagalongs and a lot of stuff I don't particularly like. Maybe someone was looking out for me...

mothergoosemouse said...

Kyle has eaten the Samoas, I have eaten the Tagalongs, and we're both pretending those Thin Mints don't exist.

Back east, no Girl Scouts ever came to my door, and I used to complain about that. Now I think it was probably a blessing in disguise.

jen said...

dude. it's a smart idea, that one. a money maker.

and all that free labor.

mamatulip said...

But...aren't they low fat now?

Mrs. Chicken said...

Oh man, those look good. I am ravenous after a week of stomach flu!

movin'mom said...

I am still waiting for my delivery! I can't even remember what I bought BUT I do know it was somewhere in the $50 dollar range.

I know what your thinking...4 kids...those will go fast! I don't even buy that stuff in the store.
But when that little girl came to my door (in the dark) I asked her..."Do you live in our neighborhood?"
She said, "No, I live next door to the Goodwill store"

So I bought a ton!!!

Christina said...

Wait a sec...you have the Lemonades!!! The scout troops in my city said they didn't get any, because that cookie has been discontinued. I've been looking for them everywhere.

Does it mean I have a problem if I ask about starting a Girl Scout cookie smuggling ring across state lines? I can partially blame it on pregnancy cravings, but I'd kill for some of those Lemonades.

Lisa said...

Oohhhh. Yummmmmm. Crap. I have NO willpower when it comes to those. And I have to fit into a bride's maid dress in about a month's time!

Bon said...

see...i'm Canadian. we have Girl Guides and Brownies, no Girl Scouts, and we apparently have sucky cookies.

for as far back as i can remember my grandmother would buy two boxes of GG cookies every year...not from me, they kicked me outta Brownies on day one...but that's another story. dear Nannie bought one box of chocolate cookies and one box of vanilla every spring, during Girl Guide cookie season. then - AND ONLY THEN - she would unwrap the film from the previous years' cookies, and she and i would commence to feast upon them. needless to say, they were always a bit stale...and not a mint version in the bunch.

i am now feeling both sentimental, for the crappy cookie goodness of bygone days, and jealous, b/c you have boxes of yummy ones.

off to raid my cupboard for something with sugar.

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah said...

Yeah, I did that the other day. I polished off a whole box of Samoas.

Mayberry said...

Aw, Christina, if they weren't already gone I would send you a box! I will keep an eye out in case the girls set up a table at the grocery store or something. 'Cause you're right... those Lemonades are good!

creative-type dad said...

I'm craving some Thin Mints now...

nonlineargirl said...

Two boxes of mint cookies, one of peanut butter cookies. All gone.

Jennifer (ponderosa) said...

Tell me about it! I am eating tagalongs as I write!!

aimee / greeblemonkey said...

I had to throw mine away. Next year, I am just writing them a check and telling them to keep the cookies.

P.S. Julie, tell Kyle I am a Samoa girl too.
