Allow me to interrupt your day to bring you this very important, very delicious public service announcement: There’s now a way to devour uncooked cookie dough without fearing you’ll get salmonella.

To this day, I’m still guilty of scooping cookie dough straight out of the bowl before I put a batch of cookies in the oven, which is always followed by immediate regret and panic that I may get salmonella … again. It happened to me once, and it was not enjoyable. BUT, I was recently introduced to Unbakeables, cookie dough bites meant to be eaten uncooked (they’re egg-free), with extra toppings to sweeten the deal. I’m pretty sure they could revolutionize kids’ birthday parties everywhere, forever. Keep reading »

Colorado Girl Scouts Put The Kibosh On Selling Cookies Outside Of Pot Shops

Last week, clever California Girl Scout made bank after she set up shop outside of a marijuana dispensary in San Francisco. The enterprising 13-year-old sold 117 boxes in two hours, both to neighbors and customers of the cannabis club. Tragically, Girl Scouts in Colorado won’t have a similar circumstance to exploit — even though their state recently legalized marijuana — because they want kiddies to stay away from the pot clubs. In a statement on their Facebook page, the Girl Scouts of Colorado warned scouts that cookie sales are not permitted outside “adult establishments,” which includes pot dispensaries. Strip clubs, bars, liquor stores and casinos as also verboten. “We recognize these are legitimate businesses, but we don’t feel they are an appropriate place for girls to be selling cookies in Colorado,” they wrote. [I wonder if they know that there is apparently a strain of marijuana named after their delectable treats? -- Amelia] Keep reading »

Girl Scout Nearly Doubles Her Cookie Sales By Setting Up Shop Outside A Cannabis Club

Thirteen-year-old Girl Scout Danielle Lei had been doing pretty well selling Thin Mints and Samoas outside grocery stores around San Francisco, but she had a feeling she could do better with a more targeted marketing strategy. So she did what any intrepid young businesswoman would do: she set up a cookie table on the sidewalk in front of The Green Cross, a cannabis club. As you might have guessed, Lei’s strategy paid off, big time. She sold 117 boxes in two hours. “It’s no secret that cannabis is an appetite stimulant, so it’s not shocking that a lot of our patients came and purchased cannabis, and then saw the cookies and purchased them,” Holli Bert, a spokesperson for The Green Cross, told NBC News. “But it wasn’t just patients; staff members and neighbors also bought the cookies. I personally bought five boxes. It turned out to be a big success.” The clinic has invited Lei back to sell cookies this weekend, where she’s sure to shatter sales records. Never underestimate the power of the munchies. [NBC]
