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

Girl Scout Cookies

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 cousin or daughter in a troop, your only hope is running into one of their pop-up cookie sales at the grocery store or wherever. In a world where most everything money can buy is instantly available, those cookies are still clamored over like the holy grail of consumer desserts. Luckily for us, the annual cookie scramble is about to get a little easier, because the Scouts are finally taking cookie sales online. Scouts can sell cookies via the Digital Cookies program, which provides each girl with her own invitation-only webpage or the option to take in-person orders via a mobile app. The site takes credit cards and ships directly to your home, which makes it super easy for long-distance relatives to support sales. The project will go national in January. Some parents have complained that this removes the in-person sales element of the cookie process, which provides girls a good life skills lesson. That’s a bummer, but just imagine: Girl Scout cookies delivered to your door! [NPR] [Image via Shutterstock]

Girl Scout Cookie-Flavored Nesquik Is A Thing Now

Girl Scouts Nesquik

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 royalties for licensing their cookie brands — just like they’ve done for lip balms, for example — there will not actually cookie pieces or ingredients in the milk and, in fact, the Samoas drink is marketed as “Caramel Coconuts.” I have no clue if Girl Scout chocolate milk tastes decent, but as they are only in stores through this month, you should get your hands on one now if you want to find out.

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.

Many problems have arisen within the organization over the last couple of years, specifically financial issues. Fewer women are offering to volunteer their time with the Girl Scouts, which means some potential Girl Scouts are on waiting lists. Declining membership and revenue has also led to many disagreements between leadership and grassroots members. The biggest problem, though, is the pension plan with a $347 million deficit. Yikes.

Ryan Gosling On Being That Creepy Guy Handing Out Girl Scout Cookies

The Gos Gave Out Girl Scout Cookies?!

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 to do with helping his dad sell cellophane as a kid and wishing that someday someone would just buy it all in one swoop so he could be done with the job. Years later, he encountered a bunch of kids selling Girl Scout cookies and decided to do for them what no one did for him and his cellophane.

“I was like, ‘I’ll take ‘em all!’ I bought hundreds and hundreds of boxes. I didn’t realize how many boxes I was going to have. I had a car full of them and I didn’t know what to do, so I started throwing the out the window to people on the street.”

Yes To Dessert!

I’m starting to get emails warning me that Girl Scout Cookie Season, AKA The Annual Will Power Challenge That We All Eventually Fail, is quickly approaching. If you’d like to get in the sugary spirit a bit early, or just can’t wait to bite into that first delicious Samoa cookie, might I suggest this breathtaking Samoa bundt cake? Not only does it look like a giant Samoa cookie, it tastes like one too. Good luck, and God help us all. [BetsyLife.com]

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 lip balms. The balms come in Chocolate Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter, Thin Mints, Trefoils and Coconut Caramel Stripes (which used to be called Samoas, ahem). Delicious, you say? Yes. But oh, such a tease. (Currently available in stores at Walmart and Claire’s Boutique.)
