Dear thin mints,

Let’s put aside our differences for just a moment: Yes, I have a favorite but that doesn’t mean that you should feel bad. Comparing cookies is like apples and oranges. But falling under the cookie umbrella at all gives you a significant advantage in my cookie-loving life.

Thin mints, you are positively beautiful: Covered in chocolate, crunchy chocolate cookie on the inside with a fresh, minty burst. And the secret step of storing you in the freezer? It’s better than ice cream (but of course, frozen thin mints on top of ice cream is even better).

So stick around, thin mints. I like you.



Hello thin mints. I've missed you.
