Ok, I don’t like GMOs. I prefer to avoid palm oil even if it’s from a sustainable source. I’m trying to eat less processed foods. And sadly, I don’t even like mint unless it’s in the form of a fresh leaf. But HECK, hearing the news that Girl Scouts Thin Mints are now vegan has me bouncing off the walls!! I know just how popular these cookies are, and the thought of thousands of Girl Scouts selling vegan cookies across the country has me smiling ear to ear!
They also have a few other vegan options too, all of which are made by ABC Bakers:
Lemonades: shortbread cookies stuffed with light lemon icing
Thanks-A-Lot: shortbread cookies dipped in fudge
Cranberry Citrus Crisp: Crispy cookie, made with whole grain, tangy cranberry bits and zesty citrus flavor
So hurray for vegan Girl Scouts cookies!!! They sure weren’t vegan when I was a Girl Scout many moons ago! And they even put a green VEGAN label on their website’s nutritional info lists too – to make it easier for consumers! And whether you’re a fan of thin mints, or not, you’ve gotta admit… it’s a HUGE step in the right direction. And the animals and environment are darn tootin’ happy about it.
