I was a Girl Scout growing up; my sister was too, and even went on to work for the organization for several years. We're big fans of the GS fundamentals, the lessons they teach young girls, and all of the charitable work that they do.
We're also *big* fans of Girl Scout cookies.
Thin Mints, Samoas, Do-Si-Dos, Tagalongs... You name it, we've eaten it. I've come up with interesting ways to eat them (crushed and as a sundae topping, for example), and have even given these treats as gifts.
But what exactly are you eating when you donate those $4 to the Girl Scouts community?
Huffington Post wanted to know too - and they found out.
