Girl Scouts unveil vitamin cookie
Like Girl Scout cookies? Take vitamin supplements?
Well now you can have both – in one cookie.
The Girl Scouts of the USA have unveiled a new cookie in their lineup: Mango Crèmes with NutriFusion.
That’s right. A vitamin-infused Girl Scout cookie.
The Mango Crèmes contain 15 percent of the recommended daily intake of Vitamin B1 and 6 percent of Vitamins A, C, D, E and B6.
They don’t, however, include any mangoes – just “mango-flavored crème” filling.
Here’s how ABC Bakers, the cookie manufacturer, describes the new addition:
These tangy, refreshing tropical treats are packed with great taste AND vitamins! Crunchy vanilla and coconut cookies feature a mango-flavored creme filling with all the nutrient benefits of eating cranberries, pomegranates, oranges, grapes, and strawberries!
Close your eyes, take a bite, and feel like you’re on a tropical island. Mango Crèmes combine a crispy cookie with the taste of mango.
Even with all of the vitamins, the cookie is still a cookie.
In fact, it has more calories per serving than any of the other Girl Scout cookies.
One serving of Mango Crèmes, which is three cookies, contains 180 calories (70 calories from fat), 8 grams of fat and 4 grams of saturated fat.
Compare that to one serving of the popular Thin Mints (4 cookies): 160 calories (70 calories from fat), 7 grams of fat and 5 grams of saturated fat.
So would you try out the new Mango Crèmes with NutriFusion? (Editor’s note: Scouts in Southwest Washington won’t be selling these treats, they use a different cookie manufacturer.)
As a side note: Does the name remind anyone else of vehicle fuel (i.e. Chevron with Techron)?
