Girls Scouts introduce 100-calorie packs.
Pre-orders of Girl Scout Cookies have begun, which means it's time to help our own girls peddle cookies as well as buy cookies from other kids in the neighborhood (and the office) doing the same thing. For the most part, the last 81 years of selling Girl Scout cookies has been business as usual. Girl comes to door, girl offers cookies, and we buy several boxes of Thin Mints and Do Si Dos guilt-free because we're buying them to "support" a fine organization. Then our guilt over consuming sleeves at a time is overpowered by the fine feeling we get from donating to a worthy cause. Well, not this year, because the little devils will be offering their new 100-calorie packs of Cinna-Spins. Oh the joy. But not every Scout will be selling them, so you might just have to order that box of Thin Mints in order to be charitable after all!
