At Girl Scout headquarters.
Because I know that they changed the thin mint recipe a bunch of years ago. I remember when I was in girl scouts and sold these that they were different.
Ok, so technically I dropped out of Girl Scouts, BUT I was a brownie and we had our meetings in the basement of Holy Family church and we walked like two blocks from the school to get there and of course had to pass a Dairy Queen on the way and so I always sometimes spent my dues on ice cream. And once I left a piece of chewed bubble gum in my uniform pocket (there was also a candy store along the route) and my mom washed it and then I had a big hard gum messy stain type lump in that pocket for the rest of my brownie career.
So you see I have a memory like a steel trap and I KNOW without a doubt that these
are not the same thin mints I sold back in the day. They just aren’t.
“I’m not a smart man, but I know what love a thin mint is.” (name the movie, name the movie, name the movie)
The ones I sold had a thin layer of creamy mintiness, like if you wrapped a peppermint patty around a thin mint. The ones that are sold today are dry and kind of cardboardy. The proof of that is the fact that if you google ‘thin mint recipe’ you will get 420 million kajillion hits about how to make thin mints with ritz crackers and they supposedly taste exactly like the GS cookies. Seriously?
Another disconcerting thing is the proven fact that there used to be more in the box and the boxes were $1.25!
People. This. Is. A. Great. American. Travesty.
SO I am thinking we can totally picket or storm headquarters or go on a hunger strike (that is your assignment) or something until they bring back the original thin mints.
And while we are at it, let’s bring back the following:
