It's..... The happiest blog on earth

A 2004 article in the San Francisco Chronicle notes that FDA and medical researchers agree trans fats are "the most dangerous fat in the human diet." At the time the Girl Scouts' spokeswoman acknowledged the need for healthier alternatives in their cookies, then claimed that "We're fast-tracking that ourselves."

It's two years later, and there's still 2 grams of dangerous trans fats in my Do-si-Dos. The Girl Scouts are trying to kill us!!!

Er, wait. Apparently there's more to the story.

"By next year's drive, all Girl Scout cookies will be free of the fat that scientists now tell us is more harmful to our hearts than saturated fat....

The Scouts have [already] taken the villainous substance out of three of their most popular cookies: Thin Mints, Caramel deLites and Peanut Butter Patties.
