It's Girl Guide cookie season here too! (they usually sell them once a year for a few weeks). But they come in plastic packets not boxes. I bought a pack and ate half in one go. No guilt, I enjoyed them!Tranplanner said:Bought a box of Girl-Guide cookies off a co-worker this morning. Ate the whole freakin' box (save one cookie) on my own.
Girl Guide cookies only come in vanilla flavour here. Plus a chocolate coated vanilla variation. Maybe we can trade when I come to visit, Tranplanner (BTW has been difficult to get to the travel agents so the plan is to book & confirm tonight)JNA said:Were they "Thin Mints" ?
Ooooh...sounds good (except for the coconut). In your first post I though you said Somosas...I had never heard of a caramel Somosa beforePlannerbabs said:Samoas--shortbready cookies covered in caramel, toasted coconut, and chocolate.
I swing between these - often I crave chocolate (which I eat on a daily basis), but I frequently crave salty snacks too - pistachio nuts are great for this.boiker said:I don't have uncontrollable urges to mow down chocolates. I tend to go for the salty, spicy snacks or foods.
Edy's is manufactured in my hometown! My mother is always raving about it. Its the same corporate parent as Dreyers, a west coast institution.Downtown said:Thank god we don't have any current access to Girl Scouts - its bad enough their limited edition Edy's Ice Cream is in our grocer's freezer. If you thought Samoas were good, their ice cream is amazingly 100 times better. Rob and I have been keeping a beady eye on the level to make sure we're both sticking to our oath of one small bowl per day.

There is a box of See's Candy Bars in the Building Inspectors' Pen. I have resisted today...so farSGB said:4 words: Gertrude Hawk chocolate bars!
My boss has had a box of 'em for sale on our front counter for 2 weeks to support his daughters' dance studio.
I bought & ate the last two. :-$
I've asked for and received some of that popcorn! ;-) :-DPlanderella said:Kettle corn popcorn - the freshly-popped kind, not microwave....can't pass the stand in the mall without getting the large bag (don't bother asking me for any either)
You are a woman after my own heart! I LOVE fresh kettle corn. The kettle corn vendor at the farmer's market in Vancouver, WA makes it especially yummy. I haven't really seen it around up here much (except for the microwave stuff).Planderella said:Kettle corn popcorn - the freshly-popped kind, not microwave....can't pass the stand in the mall without getting the large bag (don't bother asking me for any either)
So it be done... By Queen's orders I ate a 1/2 box (tube) of the Mint GSC..... I would have eaten a whole box... but it was all that was left.Queen B said:I was just thinking about that earlier.
I believe that it is manditory to eat a whole box of Girl Scout Cookies in one sitting at least once a year.
So says the Queen.....
