My Latest Obsession: Girl Scout Cookies

My Latest Obsession - Girl Scout Cookies

My Latest Obsession - Girl Scout Cookies

As I write this, I am literally eating some Thin Mints that my roommate graciously shared with me because I couldn’t find a Girl Scout to get cookies from. Usually there is a whole troop that constructs a fort of cookies on Market Street right outside my building, but I’ve yet to see them. How dare they not be there?! I need cookies!

Cookie Time really takes me back, as I used to be a Girl Scout and my older sister was before me, so this time of year has been a staple for years. I used to have a paper route (back when they had afternoon papers) as a kid and I asked everyone on my route (as well as my brother’s) to buy cookies. Talk about boxes and boxes of cookies showing up at the house! I could’ve constructed a castle with the amount of boxes that took up half the living room. I sorted and packaged all of the cookies by address and each customer received a personal note from me saying “thank you” and to enjoy the cookies.  I’m nothing if not diligent and appreciative! Some of the first customers also got some doodle or happy face that I added, but I ran out of steam and things to draw at a certain point. I was creating limited editions before I even knew what they were!

My family always bought Thin Mints (extra boxes were put into the freezer, of course) and Trefoils. I also love peanut butter, so I would always beg my mom to get a box of Tagalongs. I’d also try to sneak in a box of Samoas because I also love caramel, but I was the only one in the family that would’ve eaten it and my mom didn’t want her 9-year old gorging on a box of cookies all by herself. Every once in a while, I’ll go home now and my mom will have a box of Thin Mints in the house way after Cookie Time has ended. I’ve yet to figure out where she keeps this stash, but she’s always got a mischievous smile on her face when I ask her where the box came from.

Now, before I eat this whole box, I am going to stop talking about cookies for the moment…and go try to find a Girl Scout so I can replenish what I just ate…and get some more. Yum!

Whatever your favorite is, treat yourself to some cookies. You deserve it!

Until next week (and my next obsession)!
