I come from a scouting family (two Gold awards, one Eagle, a couple trips to Philmont, etc.) and adore chocolate. So, it should come as no shock that Girl Scout cookie time is one of my favorite times of the year. My dad is one of the very few Americans who buys enough cookies and stashes them throughout the house so he can have GS cookies all year long. Me, they maybe last 2-3 weeks-tops-even though I buy in bulk. A sleeve of Thin Mints and a tall glass of milk, perfect.
