New "Healthy" Girl Scout Cookie

I don't know how healthy it is, but Mango Cremes sound good to me. The shiitake mushrooms (Nutrifusion) has me puzzled. lol

Girl Scouts come out with 'healthy' new cookie -- a Mango Creme that features no mango, but some mushrooms! - NY Daily News

There is no Mango in their Mango cookies. Better to bring up an old Carmen Miranda video on You tube and watch it while you keep eating thin mints. Thin Mints are Healthy. There are No calories in anything that describes itself as being Thin. And you can eat a whole cellophane roll and the other half box does not get stale. I don't usually have a spoilage concern anyway.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around mushrooms that taste like mangos. In cookies yet.

I never realized how many delicious flavors they have. You can see them here, & put in your zip code to find where they are sold.
