Vegan Girl Scout Cookies
Did you know that Girl Scout cookies are vegan? Well, not all of them. I actually looked into this a while ago, and found that the cookies were not vegan. What I didn't realize is that there are two manufacturers, and only one of them offers vegan selections. Shortly after I read about this, one of my students came up to me and asked, "Do you want to buy some VEGAN Girl Scout cookies?" I looked at that order form, and sure enough, the word VEGAN was printed next to three of the cookie choices - Thin Mints, Lemonades, and Peanut Butter Patties. I immediately ordered five boxes. I haven't eaten a Girl Scout cookie in approximately ten years. If you want vegan cookies, you'll have to find a Girl Scout selling from ABC Smart Bakers, and not Little Brownie Bakers. I never enjoyed the camping and horse back riding aspects of Girl Scouts, but I had fun making jewelery with an elderly woman named Miriam at Rocking Horse Ranch and not riding the roller coasters at Hershey Park. I now will enjoy vegan Girl Scout cookies, as well. Good job, Girl Scouts.
