Girl Scout Cookies

Girl Scout cookies are now trans-fat free (or, to be more specific, the amount of trans fat is less than 0.5 g/serving, which allows them to qualify as trans-fat free under FDA regulations). The cookies were reformulated only after the manufacturers determined that the elimination of trans-fat would not compromise either taste or texture. This elephant is eagerly awaiting several boxes of Thin Mints from her little sister, a junior Girl Scout.

  2. I beg to differ, JK!

    One of the main ingredients in Girl Scout cookies (esp. Thin Mints) has a plethora of health benefits. See,

  3. Way to make an excuse for all the unhealthy among us to indulge. LOL. Is it dark chocolate, I don’t think so.

  4. Well, the real question is the cocoa content of the chocolate. If there’s not a lot of it in any particular cookie, then you just eat more of them to get the desired health effects.

    Besides, vitamins A, D, E, and K are fat-soluble. Calcium requires Vitamin D to help the body. Ergo, cookies and milk are healthy!
