keebler grasshoppers.

just as nice at half the price, and you don't have to deal with annoying little girls harassing you when you go into the grocery store.

It's a pretty bold move to blast Girl Scout cookies

Have you tried doing booth sales?  Local businesses, at least around here, love to support local troops.  My daughter's troop sold tons that way.

Oh fark off. Cookies and a healthy diet are not mutually exclusive. If you can't keep your gaping pie hole shut that's your fault.

Thin Mints are the crack cocaine of mass-produced cookies.

/on the other hand, if it wasn't for parents selling them at work, i'd never buy any at all

But do the cookies go limp in a steamy bathroom?

/Do they really  believein their product?

TFA blames it on fat people.

I hope that the brilliant headline will become a FARK meme and regular.

Love the cookies, no longer in my diet though.

Fark off. Stop questioning peoples right to make choices.
 
2014-04-02 09:09:58 AM  
What's the big fuss?  A few cookies now and then aren't going to hurt anybody.  They only sell them for one period a year.  And it's not like you're going to eat too many  - they come in the convenient single-serving containers to prevent over--indulgence.
 
2014-04-02 09:10:32 AM  
FTFA:  "The problem is that selling high-fat sugar-laden cookies to an increasingly calorie-addicted populace is no longer congruent with [the Girl Scouts' aim to make the world a better place]."

AND:    and in a way it's worse because you're co-opting innocent children."

For God's sake you imbeciles, get it together.  Jebus!
 
2014-04-02 09:11:05 AM  
If you think that teaching little girls to be crack dealers is a benefit to the community then go right ahead and buy those cookies!

I was at the grocery store the other day and the girls' leader was encouraging the impressionable scouts to offer free thin mints to shoppers.  Sure. The first one is always free.   After that, its $4 a box to feed your habit.
 
2014-04-02 09:11:07 AM  
Does biatching ,whining and moaning like a simple minded NPR individual who has there head up someone elses arse make the world a better place , or just more pathetically miserable ?

For this one we really can say, "Thanks Obama", Michelle Obama that is.
 
2014-04-02 09:14:23 AM  
Good. I don't like the cookies, and I don't like being being guilt tripped into buying them by little girls or their parents. I hope the Girl Scouts can find a more positive alternative to hawking unhealthy crap and turning litte girls into Herbalife trainees.

I'll take a couple boxes.  2 for $5, correct?
 
2014-04-02 09:14:45 AM  
I will find this doctor, then shoot him in the face with bullets made from my last remaining box of Caramel De-Lites.  Then I will eat my last box of Peanut Butter Sandwiches while I dance on his grave.  Then I will I eat my last box of the Chocolate covered Peant Butter while I jog a few miles to burn the calories off.  Then, I will not complain about how Girl Scouts made me fat, because I WAS THE ONE WHO CHOSE TO EAT THE FARKING COOKIES, DR. BLOOMBERG.

I was in Louisville for work about 2 years ago off and on for about 6 months. I had nothing but nice things to say about the people there. I do admit though, while Louisville was nice Lexington was pretty cool too.

This.  I bought one box and I would have maybe 1 a day as a little "dessert" after a meal. ONOES  Have some self-control, people!
 
2014-04-02 09:16:46 AM  
The sentiment was echoed by Diane Hartman, a writer and editor in Denver, who penned an indignant op-ed in theDenver Post, "Why are we letting Girl Scouts sell these fattening cookies?"

Uh, letting them? The last time I checked, private organizations didn't need your permission to sell a legal product. If you are opposed to them, don't buy them. You don't get to ram your self-righteous indignation down everyone else's throats because you're a fatty who doesn't have the self control to resist the Caramel Delites.

They aren't that good to begin with, and I'm not a fan of people using their children as weird social status pawns to one-up the Joneses because they forced their employees to "voluntarily" buy a dozen boxes each. Teach the kids to bake the same cookies or something with normal ingredients.
 
2014-04-02 09:18:26 AM  
Good luck with those stands selling free-range broccoli florets outside the grocery store.

All you do is just tell them you already bought some.  I HATE how Kroger's lets all kinds of groups ambush you in their foyer, like they are giving you such a good deal and that you didn't just spend an arm and a leg on groceries because they have a monopoly in the region. Hear that Kroger?

To some doctors and parents, the tradition increasingly feels out of step with the uncomfortable public health realities of our day.

To "some doctors and parents" out your asshole selves and prepare to be impaled upon the backlash of a frustrated public. Allow us to make an example of you. Do we care? NO! We are Americans. We are OBESE and we want you to STFU or be beaten into submission. If we allow you to crush the dreams of our daughters, then the terrorists have won. What is next? We can't bring a 2 liter Pepsi on a plane? We can't carry 7 packets of Mentos when flying? We can't bring mashed potatoes and gravy leftovers home across country? If we allow this, then where does it end?
Oh, wait.

You know, the Mint Thins that they sell at Dollar General are pretty good, and much more affordable. Plus you don't have to dress up to go shopping.

Most of my positive experiences in Louisville involve people who weren't from there. Central Kentuckians are far nicer. Horse people are by far the nicest of all, regardless of where they're from.

Ridiculously overpriced mediocre cookies with proceeds going to a useless organization.

gretzkyscores: When fascism comes to America, it will be wearing a white lab coat and stethoscope.


Actually, doctors are working on a snack food that is even more addictive and bad for you in order that they can force everyone into the doctor's office every month at minimum.  They want to get Girl Scout cookies out of the way to eliminate competition.  They are coupling their nefarious snacking scheme with increased legalization and decriminalization of marijuana.  That way, they will not only be able to control us completely, they will take all of our money while doing it.  And we will be eager to give it to them!  Those evil bastards.

Samoas: Other than Thin Mints, the only Girl Scout cookies worth eating.

My mother, a third-grade teacher, always has at least one Girl Scout in her class, so it's like a pipeline to the damned cookies. Four boxes of Samoas this year lasted two weeks.

/Yep, I sound fat...

Anyone know where I can get those lemon cookies the Girl Scouts used to sell? They haven't sold them in like two years. For some reason they are like crack for me (not a big chocolate person). Thanks!
 
2014-04-02 09:33:23 AM  
As the parent of a former girl scout, I can tell you the cookie sale is a scam, that teaches the girls nothing positive about community, finances or effort and reward efficiency.  It teaches them to get fat, and that their parents will do lots of free work for minimal gain.
 
2014-04-02 09:33:48 AM  
"But a few brave voices argue it's no longer all that delightful to see little girls peddling packaged cookies, or to buy them in the name of supporting the community."

Brave? I don't think you know the meaning of the word. Now FOAD!
