Do We Really Need a "Healthy" Girl Scout Cookie?

The organization introduces a new tropical-inspired treat packed with fruit-derived vitamins

The Girl Scouts may have created a real cookie monstrosity this time.

In an attempt to attract the health-conscious cookie connoisseur, the organization recently announced the deubt of vitamin-packed sammies called Mango Crèmes with NutriFusion™. Call me crazy, but I don’t think something that sounds like it could be listed on my conditioner bottle should be in my cookies.

The "crunchy vanilla and coconut cookies with a mango-flavored crème filling have all the nutrient benefits of eating cranberries, pomegranates, oranges, grapes and strawberries," explains the "Official Girl Scout Cookie Bakers," ABC Bakers, a Richmond, Virginia-based cookie and cracker manufacturer. Strangely enough, the tropical-inspired treats aren't made with any actual mango. They do contain shiitake mushroom concentrate though. Yum.

We haven't ordered our box of Mango Crèmes yet, so the jury is still out on taste. But, according to the bakers, they contain no trans fats, hydrogenated oils or preservatives, and offer up a good shot of Vitamins B1, A, C, D and E. Take that, New Year's diet resolution!

If you care more about chocolate than Vitamin C, don't worry. All the old go-to faves, like Thin Mints and Caramel deLites, will remain on the roster in all their full-fat glory. Click here to enter your  zip code and find a Girl Scout cookie sale near you.
