I'm Lovin' It Friday: Girl Scout Cookies!

In this week's installment of I'm Lovin' It Friday, I would like to give a shout-out to the Girl Scout Cookie.

Hell yes.

I know I'm not alone when I say, "Girl Scout Cookies are the highlight of my year."

Okay, maybe they aren't quite the highlight of my year, but they are right up there!

This year I had a devil of a time actually finding a Girl Scout to sell me cookies!  I knew the cookies were for sale because the special edition Dreyers ice cream was in stores!  But I could not find a Girl Scout!  So, I did was any cookie junkie would do...I put a post up on Facebook.

A friend responding saying, "Haha!  If you're serious, I know someone who is selling them!"  I can't believe she had to ask if I was serious.  Of course I was serious!  Why would I joke about the most delicious cookies EVER?!

So, through the magic of Facebook, I got hooked up with my Girl Scout cookies.  The poor woman I ordered them from probably thought I was nuts.  We had to arrange a meeting so that I could pay her and pick up my 5 boxes...which, by the time I actually got them, somehow became 8 boxes...and this isn't counting the other friend who shipped 2 boxes to me, just to help me get by!

Now, in my defense, two of the boxes aren't for me.  But, 8 of them are.  And I don't plan on sharing.

Freaking delicious.

I can't risk getting Grace hooked on Samoas, because you know what's going to happen?  Someday, there will only be one cookie left, and Grace will look at me with those big blue eyes, and I will give it to her.  I'm willing to share some of my Thin Mints - you can get cookies pretty similar at the grocery store year-round.  But Samoas?  No.  Those are unique and special and amazing.

Sorry Grace!  These are mommy's "special" cookies!

Next year I am totally screwed...I'm just sure Girl Scouts have some sort of public forum where they let each other know about easy targets.

  1. It was weird because this year our local GS sold cookies in the FALL!! Can you believe that? It was so odd. My favorite ones are discontinued :-( They were a rectangular shortbread with chocolate on the bottom... yum!

  2. I couldn't find a girl scout cookie ANYWHERE this year either! I too put up a post on facebook! How funny is that? I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Samoas! YUMMO!!!

  3. AAAH girl guide cookies were my favourite when i was a kid! since being diagnosed with celiac disease in 2007 I cant eat them any more and its sad! someone needs to make a GF option :D

  4. Maybe I'm weird, but I've never been a fan. I don't buy them, but eat them if someone else has them. The peanut butter ones are my fave. I helped lead a group of second graders for a year. Fun but challenging!

  5. As a fellow Girl Scout cookie junkie, I can relate wholeheartedly! In our area, they have a web site so you can locate their "selling points." Back in the day when I used to be a Girl Scout, we didn't go to stores and sit there ... we walked the neighborhoods selling door to door. (I guess that is too dangerous now?) Then I found out my neighbor across the street is a Girl Scout and she became my source ... it was like I was a scoring drugs or something.

    Long live the Girl Scouts!!!

  6. Oh I really am sorry, but I hate GS cookies. And I always buy them. Every little scout in my hood comes to my house to sell them. I cannot say no to a girl scout! Still, I take them over to the home for the elderly and they are always well received. (I do think they are a little yucky though!)
