I Am a Thin Mint with Tagalong Tendencies

Momservation: It’s either a testament to knowing your weaknesses or a sad statement on self-control if your daughter is not a Girl Scout because of your cookie temptation.

If you know what’s good for your waistline, don’t answer the door. Stay away from the grocery store fronts – use the loading dock in the back. Avoid friends with young girls.

Yep, it’s Girl Scout Cookie season.

If you’ve never met a Thin Mint you didn’t like you understand my self-preservation.

If you’d rather curl up with a box of Samoas® than your husband at night you know what’s at stake.

If you’d rather tag along with your Tagalongs® than your own friends you should be worried.

If you’ve bared your teeth and growled at your own children over Do-Si-Dos™, than heed my warning.

Girl Scout cookies sold to “help girls do great things” by adorable little girls in green uniforms makes junkies out of us all. Once our boxes are gone we race back to our store-front suppliers for the next hit. When the doorbells stop ringing, moms stop pimping out sales, and the pigtailed hawkers are gone, instead of being relieved for your salvation you cry, “I should’ve bought more boxes when I had the chance!”

Okay, that might be a little dramatic and I might just be a little bitter right now because I just polished off a sleeve of Thin Mints in one sitting.

However, here’s something interesting. I’ve always said you can tell a person’s personality by their favorite ice cream flavor. I’m thinking it’s the same for their favorite Girl Scout cookie. So in a totally unscientific poll (because I just made this up) I’ve come up with what your Girl Scout cookie preference says about you:

You Are What Girl Scout Cookie You Eat

Do-Si-Dos™ – You are a kid at heart. You love the traditional things in life – mom’s home cooking, pbj with the crusts cut off, a cold glass of milk with cookies. You would trade your whole lunch for Nutter Butters as a kid.

Dulce de Leche – You’re a bit wild. You’re not afraid to try new things and like to think outside the box. You slept through Spanish class and have no idea what you’re eating but you’re not scared.

Lemonades™ – You like to be different. You’re not afraid to stand out in a crowd. But you still want everyone to like you. You practice your Oscar acceptance speech in the shower.

Samoas®/Caramel deLites™ – You’re a multi-tasker. You say “yes” to everything. You don’t care about portion sizes; you fill up your plate and don’t care if your food touches.

Savannah Smiles™ – You’re a romantic. You read anything Nicholas Sparks writes. You’d love to take a trip to Tuscany, especially if your husband gave you the green light to go with Channing Tatum.

Thin Mints – You love a little excitement in your life, but you’re reliable. You like having your cake and eating it too. You think multiple numbers of the same item count as one in the 15 Item or Less grocery line and you own it.

Shout Outs!™ – You like to be in control of things. You don’t do decaf. You can get an hour work-out done in 30 minutes. You’re not just Type A – you’re Type A+.

Tagalongs®/Peanut Butter Patties® – You are a passionate person. You are all about seizing the day and getting the most out of life. You want it all; you don’t care what the consequences are. Though you will complain about your muffin top, bewildered how it got there.

Thanks-A-Lot™ – You’re a rules-kinda-gal dying to give into your wild side. You fantasize about slipping into the 15 Item of Less line with 17 items. You still giggle when people call flip flops “thongs”.

Thank U Berry Munch – You are a purist. You shop at Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s. You like the finer things in life. You don’t understand why anyone would drink beer when they could be drinking wine.

Trefoils – You like the simple things in life. You don’t like a lot of drama. You are organized, a list maker, and have never been late in your life. People would be surprised to find you dye the carpet to match the drapes.

    It’s Girl Scout cookie time again! This blog was a huge hit last year, so in case you missed it (and because my kids are out of school for Ski Week) – What does your favorite Girl Scout cookie say about your personality?
