Go ahead, support the Girl Scouts
Don't despair, Do-si-do devotees. Take heart, Tagalong fans. The Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. have announced that the peanut butter used in their cookies is safe. Neither of the bakers who supply the Girl Scouts with their fundraising cookies buy their ingredients from the company that the federal government says is the source of a recent salmonella outbreak.
If there can be anyone who doesn't know, here's the scoop: Tagalongs are cookies covered in peanut butter and chocolate. Do-si-dos are sandwich cookies with peanut butter in the middle. Of course Thin Mint fans may have been feeling smug all along.
Girl Scout cookie season began over the weekend in Los Angeles.
