I just had a look at the nutritional information and they are 5-12g carb per cookie. Sounds perfectly manageable to me. In fact they are a nice size to use as a hypo treatment. (Yes yes I know it's off book but they work for me!)
You know, they've been putting artificial girl scouts (instead of good wholesome real girl scouts) in the cookies the past few years. While the real girl scouts were essentially zero-carb, the artificial ones have gobs of carbs.
I was just dx'ed with type 1 Oct 2010, so this is my first year with the temptation. As I have several friends whose daughters are selling cookies, I asked my husband if he wanted any. I told him it would be ok with me if he did, it wouldn't bother me. But he decided against it, he's a good man.
But this did remind me of one of my friend's statuses on facebook a few days back. I laughed for about 10 mins after reading this (and yes, she is crazy enough I have no doubt this happened):
Soooo....after working out for a couple of weeks, I decided that every time I got a Girl Scout cookie craving I'd put on my swimsuit and check myself out in front of the mirror. Result? I'm eating Thin Mints in a bikini at the kitchen table.
