A New Girl Scouts Cookie Causes Controversy
Starting tomorrow (Saturday), local Girls Scouts will be out in force selling eight different kinds of cookies and everybody is talking about the new cookie, Mango Creme. This girl scout cookie is a crunchy vanilla and coconut sandwich cookie with a mango-flavored creme filling. If you avoid the empty calories of cookies this may encourage you to take a bite. The mango creme cookies have zero grams of trans fat per serving and no hydrogenated oils or preservatives.
So stock up on the Thin Mints, Samoas and Tagalongs and now the Mango Creme. ABC Bakers are the people behind the Girl Scout cookies and this year they wanted to come up with a healthier offering, so they created the tropical fruit-inspired sandwich cookie. Did you know it's been infused it with NutriFusion? Don't be alarmed, it's a patented vitamin product. Some critics say NutriFusion is just the latest attempt to paint junk food as being healthy. Yahoo Shine spoke to the makers of NutriFusion, who said there are no chemicals in the product, instead it's 100 percent natural, made up of dehydrated and powdered fruits and vegetables. Well I have a concern, when I eat one of any flavor girl scout cookie, I become the cookie monster devouring an entire sleeve! Well, If your a girl scout, contact me for my order. Along with the new Mango Creme, other cookies available are; Thin Mints, Caramel DeLites, Thanks a Lots, Lemonades, Shortbread, Peanut Butter Patties and a personal favorite, the Peanut Butter Sandwich. Last we heard, each box of cookies costs $3.50. Girl Scout cookie season will run through March 3.
