Tom Hanks Helps Sell Girl Scout Cookies, Reminds Us He’s A National Treasure

A few weeks ago, a Girl Scout troop out selling cookies in Los Altos, California spotted Tom Hanks passing through town.

Now We Can Bake Girl Scout Cookies At Home!

My fervent mission to build up a Girl Scout cookie stockpile just got a lot easier, because soon we can make them at home! Starting this fall, Wicked Cool Toys’ Girl Scout Cookie Oven can be yours for $60, which may seem hefty for what’s being marketed as a toy (puh-lease, this was definitely made for the cookie starved…

Santa Must Have Heard My Pleas Because We Can Finally Buy Girl Scout Cookies Online

As anyone who loves Girl Scout cookies (so, the entire human race) knows, it can be really hard to get your hands on a box. They’re only for sale for a limited timeframe each year, and you can’t track them down without personally interacting with a Girl Scout. If you don’t have a niece or…

Girl Scout Cookie-Flavored Nesquik Is A Thing Now

Nesquik has debuted a new chocolate milk beverage we are welcoming with open arms and clogged arteries: Girl Scout cookie-flavored milk. (At least it’s lowfat Girl Scout cookie-flavored milk.) The two limited edition flavors are based on the popular cookies Thin Mints and Samoas. That’s right, I wrote based on. Although the Scouts will receive royaltie…

Uh Oh: The Girl Scouts Are In Trouble

It’s been a year since both the Girl Scouts of the USA celebrated their centennial and a year since I posted “Girl Talk: I Was Born A Girl Scout.”  Unfortunately, the balloons have since burst, all the cake has been eaten, and the Girl Scouts have little to sing about these days.

My boo appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” earlier this week, and confirmed a rumor that the host had heard from friends of his. About five or six years ago, Ryan Gosling did indeed hand out Girl Scout cookies to strangers on the streets of Los Angeles. But why? Ryan proceeded to give a long explanation, having…

Girl Scout Cookies On Your Lips

God love Girl Scout Cookies, but they’re sadly only available a few months out of the year. If you don’t stock up, or just have no self-control, then your GS cookie intake is pretty limited. To satiate Thin Mint fans year round, Girls Scouts have partnered with Lip Smacker to make a series of cookie-flavored li…

Thin Mints Get All The Love

Sometimes when I have sugar cravings I like to watch “To Chef: Just Desserts” and pretend like I’m a judge who gets to try everything. I did that last night. Today, I am Googling news items about cookies. I stumbled upon this delicious infographic that shows Girl Scout cookie varietals by percentage of sales. A…

Don’t Tell Cookie Monster There Will Be Only 6 Kinds Of Girl Scout Cookies This Year

Unlike most of the girls I knew, I wasn’t that into being a Brownie. I thought the uniform was ugly (really, of all the colors in the world—brown?) and didn’t want to learn how to crochet in order to get a weird patch to sew onto a sash (really, sashes?). But there was one part…

Girl Scouts Host First Ever Duct Tape Fashion Show

As a born and bred New Yorker, I never had the inclination to join the Girl Scouts and learn the necessary wilderness skills to survive the jungle otherwise known as Central Park. Just because I can’t figure out how to start a fire by rubbing rocks together and lack the super cute uniform does not…
