Cookies are health foods!

What is there to say about Girl Scout cookies.  Everybody loves them (or is forced to).

But now, if you worried that promoting cookies maybe wasn’t the best public health strategy, ABC Bakers, the company that makes them, has solved your problem.

Girl Scout cookies are now health foods.  How?


Translation: “major vitamins.”

Mango Creme cookie

As the company explains, NutriFusion is delicious made nutritious.

These crunchy vanilla and coconut cookies with a mango-flavored crème filling have all the nutrient benefits of eating cranberries, pomegranates, oranges, grapes, and strawberries.

As I keep saying, you can’t make this stuff up.
