So here I was moments ago perusing one of my favorite niches on one of my favorite blogs – the Food section of Huff Post – and my brain was attacked with absolute amazingness that I never saw coming. You know that feeling you get when you find $20 in your coat pocket from last year? Multiply that by about a million and put a pile of puppies on top!
Let it be known that I am typing this while surrounded by Girl Scout cookies. Let it also be known that I am not one of those people who consider them a guilty pleasure – I enjoy them completely guilt-free until the last delicious buttery crumb of a Trefoil crosses my lips. I take my Tagalongs as tag-alongs to work, I smile at Savannah Smiles. And just like millions (billions? bajillions?) of others, I LOSE MY MIND over Thin Mints. I’ve found recipes online to make them myself, but I want no part of that! Whatever those Girl Scout bakers are doing, it’s nothing short of magical, and I’m not about to go thinking I have any business trying to replicate it. All I know is there’s a wafer involved, there’s positively perfect peppermint, and there’s a melty, marvelous chocolaty coating that I’m pretty sure was conjured up in a dream.
But this post is not simply an ode to Girl Scout cookies, or their star player, Thin Mints. Though, if I wanted to, I could surely devote the entire blog to Girl Scout cookies and never run out of things to say. But…I digress. This is not that, but it is something related. This – this thing I just saw on Huff Post – this Inception-like dream inside a dream – is a product slated to potentially hit stores this June. This is the Nestle Crunch Thin Mints candy bar post!
According to HuffingtonPost.com, the “Thin Mint-Nestle Crunch hybrid” first appeared on Reddit, where it was picked up by the ladies at Jezebel who know a good thing when they see it. But…was it real? If so, why wasn’t there anything else on the Internet about it? Oh, dear readers, I admit I’m glad I didn’t see it until today or I might have cried a river of minty tears with so many unanswered questions! Yes, I saw it on HuffPost, who was provided with the photo above by none other than THE GIRL SCOUTS THEMSELVES. Does it get more magical than that? If the Girl Scouts ever email me, I already have my response planned. It involves fainting.
