What's the big deal with Girl Scout Cookies?

ipsedixit | Mar 3, 2007 09:31 PM

Seriously, do people actually like Girl Scout Cookies?

The renowned Thin Mints taste like a glorified after-dinner mint.

The samoas are so cloyingly sweet they make my teeth ache just typing this.

And, honestly, I would rather eat a cold pat of butter on a Saltine cracker than one of those shortread cookies.

I have nothing against the Girl Scouts or the entrepreneurial spirit the cookie program tries to foster, but couldn't they find something just a wee bit more palatable to sell?

Or, is that part of the challenge? ... Learn how to successfully sell vile food products and you can succeed at anything in life?
