Last week a sweet little girl from down the block rang the doorbell and I was excited when I opened the door and saw her wagon filled with Girl Scout cookies - meaning my Tagalongs had arrived!!
Excitement turned to disappointment when, after freezing them for a hour - if you do not freeze your Girl Scout Cookies - this is something you may want to consider - I opened the box and furrowed my brow as I realized how downsized these cookies were from the thick Girl Scout Tagalongs of yore.
Here's what I saw:
Ohhhh...I forgot I first ate one sleeve - and MB the second sleeve, so all that remained by the time of the photo op was the third sleeve - VC's. As you can see, I divvied everything up fairly...
What you need to notice is how thin and tiny the cookies look.
Of course, I couldn't resist inquiring on FB as to whether everyone else had noticed this shrinkage issue. It quickly turned into a debate about whether it is best when ordering to calculate the per unit cost. My cost conscious relatives (it's in our blood) had calculated that, in this case, it is best to go with the Thin Mints.
Had I only taken the time to do that before ordering my puny Tagalongs, which came in at roughly .26 cents a cookie.
Did you order Girl Scout cookies this year? Were you pleased when you opened the box?
