It is that time of year again folks.
No, not March Madness.
No, not Lent.
It is Girl Scout cookie time.

We got our cookies a few weeks ago and we've been eating them slowly. My husband has actually not eaten any yet because he is saving them for me. Isn't that sweet?
Anyway, I've eaten a couple thin mints at a time every other day or so. The other day I was near the end of the package and I thought I would just eat a couple extra. Ben spied me eating them and wanted one. As he was eating his, I noticed something.
Everyone eats Thin Mints differently.
I eat mine with smallish bites because I want to savor them. I eat them somewhat slowly because I want to enjoy them. You only get them once a year after all.
When Ben ate them, he put the whole thing in his mouth and let it melt in his mouth. I tried to get him to take little bites, but he just put the second one in mouth and laughed. He had his way to do and I wasn't going to convince him otherwise.
My mom has a special ritual as well. She puts hers in the freezer. She loves her Thin Mints cold. I have to admit that they are pretty good. Personally, I don't want to wait for them to be cold. However when I show restraint and put them in the freezer. I like them that way too.
What about you? How do you eat them?
