Craving Girl Scout Thin Mints or Girl Guide Chocolate Mint Cookies? Try This Copycat Recipe!

Speed Bump comic - Girl Guide Cookies

Who doesn't like Girl Guide (a.k.a. Girl Scout) cookies?!

If you may recall, a few days ago I had blogged about my newfound love for DavidsTea’s Read My Lips chocolate mint flavored loose leaf black tea… and how it tasted exactly like Girl Guide chocolate mint cookies (or Girl Scouts Thin Mints for you Americans out there).

Of course, blogging about it made me instantly crave the delicious chocolate covered, peppermint-y, crunchy wafer goodness of these Girl Guide cookies. However, I had no idea where to get them! I honestly think it’s been years since I last saw a Girl Guide selling Thin Mint cookies.

Anyway, after a quick check on the official Girl Guides of Canada website, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that October 23, 2010 was officially Cookie Day at Sears.

What's contained inside this box is nothing short of minty chocolate awesomeness.

How coincidental is that? Here I was, craving these cookies and not knowing where I could get my hands on them, only to find out “Cookie Day” would just be 2 days away, and available at a Sears store that’s literally steps away from my apartment!

So yes, I managed to pick up 5 boxes of Girl Guide chocolate mint cookies today at Sears. And I think I made a couple Girl Guides extremely happy along the way (when they had asked how many boxes I’d like to purchase and I said 5, their faces lit up… awww), which felt great. See? It’s a win-win situation!
