Have you been hit up to buy Girl Scout cookies yet?
Though I don't like the awkwardness of the solicitation in the office, I am a fan of Girl Scout cookies!
The 2 questions I always ask people are how many, and what's your favorite... meaning how many boxes do you usually buy and obviously what's your favorite kind?
Me it's 3-5, and I love the thin mints!
If you haven't heard, the Girl Scouts are selling a new cookie this year.
Unfortunately, it's called Mango Crème. And it's like a way, way worse version of the Oreo: Vanilla and coconut flavored cookies with mango filling in between.
But there's a whole other reason to be SUSPICIOUS of this new cookie. It's INJECTED with a food ADDITIVE called NutriFusion.
NutriFusion reportedly jams Vitamins like A, B-one, B-six, C, D, and E into the cookies.
The people who make NutriFusion say it includes, quote, "all the nutrient benefits of eating cranberries, pomegranates, oranges, grapes, and strawberries." They also say it's made entirely from fruits and vegetables, with nothing synthetic.
Will that make you want to buy this mediocre flavor? Or are you still going to buy Thin Mints and enjoy them and their total lack of nutritional value?
