And, We're Not Talking Thin Mints Here Folks

It's that time of year again. The time of year when you can't open your front door or enter a grocery store without being accosted by a Brownie or Girl Scout hawking her wares. But this year, the girls have something new in their arsenal -- a new cookie that contains - GASP - vitamins.

Shove over Samoas, there's a new kid on the Girl Scout cookie block and it's packing a healthy (ish) punch.

The new Mango Cremes have something that's called NutriFusion added to their creme filling. What, pray tell, is NutriFusion? It's an "all-natural, nutritional additive that is 100 percent from fruits and vegetables."  What's it made from? The entire fruit and veggie -- including the skins and peels.

According to the Girl Scouts, these new Mango Cremes will transport you and make you "feel like you're on a tropical island." Un-huh. They also say that the new cookies are loaded with "great taste and vitamins."  Hmmm. Let's take a look at what's really in them:

Mango Cremes with NutriFusion™ contain:
• 15% RDI (reference daily intake) of Vitamin B1 per serving
• 5% RDI of Vitamins A, C, D, E, and B6 per serving
• Zero grams trans fats per serving
• No hydrogenated oils
• No preservatives

Ok, so they're better than most of the others but three measely cookies still pack a whallop of 8 grams of fat and 180 calories.  Methinks those rascally Girl Scout marketing people are making more of this "healthy" claim than it warrants.
