    I went through a BOX of caramel delites this weekend!
    I kept saying "one more isn't so bad" every few hours.
    Oh well, Monday through Friday is dedicated to purging- lots of rabbit food and cardio!

    I have 2 Girl Scouts in the House.
    Saturday was our pick up. All I can say is that it is a good thing we have an SUV.
    Between the 2 there were 40 some cases.
    Now for the fun delivering them..........LOL

    At one time I dusted a box of those (still Samoas in my mind) in less than a day. Didn't feel so hot the next day though.

    I came home tonight and after dinner we had the LAST box from the freezer - we like the thin mints over ice cream.

    We put 'em in a freezer bag (a bit thicker) and pound 'em into bits...sprinkle over ice cream...YUM! :drool:

    anyway...with this year's re-supply order incoming...I guess my wife decided we could quit rationing the last box! :lolhammer:

    Grasshopper cookies, which can be purchased in many grocery stores, are the same as thin mints, but larger in size, cheaper, and available year-round; and yes, they're delicious whether Thin Mints or Grasshoppers. :)

    Is there a store product equivalent to Samoas/Caramel Delites?

    Seriously, what do they put in those things?! :D

    1. Thin Mints (chilled or room temp). Limited myself to one tube at a time, but only when I'm feeling strong!
    2. Samoas. I think one box is 4 times your daily saturated fat intake. Therefore I limited myself to only one box at a time...
    3. The shortbread ones with chocolate on the bottom; also the lemon ones (do they still make those?)

    I haven't even had any this year and I'm getting the shakes... :lolhammer:

    Dreyer's makes a Samoas ice cream that's absolutely killer. As in, it's easy to eat yourself to death if it's around. Fortunately it sells out so fast that I can't buy too much.

    Darn. The only people I get at my door, are Jehovah's Witnesses. If they where selling candy, I'd probably buy it. :shrug:

    The Girl Scouts should be selling those suckers online.... well the girl guides here in Canada prefer you go to your local dealer. There wasn't a "buy it now" button on their website. But if there was.....

    Last night I devoured a box of Oreo cookies though. First cookie I had in months! One box for two dollars at PharmaPlus!

    The answer to the plague of Girl Scout Cookies is when they start making them out of real Girl Scouts.

    I have delivered 323 boxes in the last week.
    Rewards of labor have been 4 boxes of Tagalongs in my belly.
