## How many points will that cookie cost you?

Guess what time it is??

This year my girls decided to take a break from scouting. That's good for me. No little girls with the most beautiful blue and green eyes staring up at me asking me to pretty please buy their cookies. No picking up cases upon cases of cookies. But I was always prepared when those tasty cookies came my way. I would figure out the PPV values ahead of time, and then write the points right on the box in a black sharpie. Nice and big so I could see it. Sometimes I could justify eating the cookies, sometimes I couldn't. It was the writing of the points on the box that kept me in check. Now I'm completely grain free (and feeling FABULOUS) so I'm pretty sure I won't be tempted this year. Guess we'll find out because I ordered 4 boxes of the new gluten free cookie (for the kids) from a neighboring state.

*Most *types of Girl Scout cookies can be found in the Weight Watchers eTools database. You can also use eTools to calculate any number of cookies you just might eat. So if you eat the entire box in one sitting (in my "before" life I would do this...often) you can calculate the points.

Thankfully Girl Scout cookies aren't available year round.

Are you a fan of Girl Scout cookies? Which is your favorite?
