Have any of you indulged in Girl Scout cookies this year? I bought 4 boxes from the daughter of a friend. I don’t normally order them, I wait until the girls are selling them at the little tables in front of the grocery store but hormones got the best of me this year.
And I waited – for 2 months – to get these cookies. Peanut Butter Patties are my favorite. Of course that’s not what they are called now. It’s Tagalongs. Whatever.
Last night they got the best of me and I cracked them open while watching Grey’s. What better way to enjoy my Thursday – Dr. McDreamy and Girl Scout cookies, right?
I ripped open the box and pulled out a cookie. It looked smaller. And there were definitely fewer cookies in the box than when I was a little Brownie schleping them up and down Groves Drive. I get it – economy, inflation, all that bullshit.
Then I bite into one. Where the fuck is the peanut butter in my Peanut Butter Pattie? Huh? Isn’t that like the main freaking ingredient? I thought so. Apparently no one told the manufacturer…the cookie now has a pathetic dent in the top with a miniscual amount of crappy tasting PB in it. Huh? I paid $3.50 for this? Seriously?
Not only did the maker NOT get the key ingredients but apparently they also weren’t told that if you make these cookies ONE TIME A YEAR, you’d better get it the fuck right.
After the box is gone From this day forward – BOYCOTT!
Until Avery joins girl scouts. Then I’ll have to change my tune.
