It’s that Girl Scout cookie time of year

Published: Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2014 9:36 a.m. CDT

So, I admit it.  I’m a sucker for cookies.  Aren’t we all?

I am a Girl Scout leader and am one of those people encouraging little girls to go out and sell as many cookies as possible…. to you.  

To protect your waistlines from these seemingly innocent boxes of cookies, I will give you the nutritional breakdown, from best to worst.

Best Choice:  Savannah Smiles – only 140 calories and 1.5g saturated fat (5 cookies)

Trefoils – 160 calories and 2.5g saturated fat (5 cookies)

Thin Mints – 160 calories and 5g saturated fat (4 cookies)

Do-si-dos – 160 calories and 2g saturated fat (3 cookies)

Worst Choice:  Tagalongs & Samoas – 140 calories and 5g saturated fat (2 cookies)

So hopefully you ordered the cookies towards the top of the list.  If not, be sure to share your cookies with your friends.  Don’t forget that you can always give monetary donations to Girl Scouts at cookie sale time instead of actually buying the cookies.  

Yeah, right.
