Personally, I hate them.
But me aside, do people really like Girl Scout Cookies?
I mean, seriously, they taste terrible and they're terrible for you.
If they weren't associated with the Girl Scouts would people actually go ga-ga over them and profess to things like ...
"What's a serving of Girl Scout Thin Mints? ... A whole box!"
Seriously, would people make such outlandish statements if Thin Mints were, say, associated with Starbucks?
"What's a serving of Starbucks Thin Mints? ... A whole box!"
Is this simply a case of nostalgia and smart marketing?
