Vegan Girl Scout Cookies
I've been busy spending time with friends and working lately. I also had a birthday recently. I've got a ton of stuff to blog about, so I'll start with one of the more exciting posts. Since moving to Texas, I have discovered that the local Girl Scouts order their cookies from ABC Bakery, instead of from Little Brownie Bakers. I haven't had a Girl Scout cookie in years, because the Little Brownie Bakers supply Florida. All of the Little Brownie Bakers' cookies are spiked with milk-based ingredients. The ABC Bakery offers some vegan cookies! There are the Thanks-A-Lot (a vanilla cookie with a chocolate coating on the bottom), the famous Thin Mints, and the Peanut Butter Patties (known as Tagalongs from LBB). I was so surprised to find out this was true, after reading about vegan Girl Scout cookies years ago on Go Dairy Free. (Here's a recent version of that article.) I, of course, ordered the Thin Mints and Peanut Butter Patties. I wish Samoas were vegan, but hey, I can't complain too much!
