Which Girl Scout Cookie Is the Healthiest and Which to Avoid
It's that time of year again. Girl Scout Cookies are back for a limited time. You know you're going to buy about a dozen boxes and stock up for the summer! Some are actually not too bad for you. Some, not so much. Here's a list of the healthiest and least healthiest Girl Scout cookies.
Some of us call these Shortbread cookies. Now, don't go eating a whole box but these are the healthiest of all the Girl Scout cookies. One cookie has 30 calories and less fat and sugar than any of the others.
The new cookie introduced this year. It actually has fewer calories than Trefoils do at only 28 per cookie.
Love me some Thin Mints. They're not as bad as I've always thought. 40 calories per cookie. However, the box says there's no trans fat even though that is not exactly true.
Caramel cookies with caramel chips in them, this can't be good?! Actually, they're not too bad with about 40 calories each.
Grab your partner round and round do-si-do and all fall down. Some people call these "Peanut Butter Sandwiches". Whatever you call them they're rocking about 55 calories per sandwich.
I can't say I've tried these. Mostly on account of the cranberries in them. One cookie is packed with 60 calories and 3.5 grams of sugar.
Some folks call these "Peanut Butter Patties". I call these a slice of heaven. Well, at least back in the day when I could eat them. Not so healthy though. Each one has around 70 calories and contains some trans fat.
Go figure. The most yummy equals the least healthy. 70 calories in each delightful treat. Dang it!
