Good morning,
Just cracked open a few boxes of Girl Scout Cookies, for my cookie jar at work.

Looking at the Nutrition Facts, these things are HIGH in saturated fat, which is to say I didn't expect them to be healthy but did not expect them to be this bad.


NUTRITION FACTS (% Daily Value)
1. Double Dutch
  • 2 cookies per serving
    110 calories
    1.5g saturated fat (8%)

2. Tagalongs
  • 2 cookies per serving
    140 calories
    4.0g saturated fat (20%)

3. Do-si-dos
  • 3 cookies per serving
    160 calories
    1.5g saturated fat (8%)


Wonder what the nutritional numbers are for Mrs. Fields chocolate chip cookies.



Bon Appetit,
PCM

That's high? 8%? That's a serving of 2/3 cookies. Maybe the Tagalongs yes. But that doesn't seem out of the ordinary/average for most cookies.

Sat fat = bad = myth.

It's a conspiracy by food manufacturers to sell more high margin low-fat food.

There's no good science to back it up.

I don't eat them because they are loaded with sugar and processed flour, not because of the sat fat.
