What do you think of the lawsuit?




Thin Mints are not making people any thinner and this is a blatant case of false advertising.

I cannot confirm nor deny that a box of thin mints in front of me have all been eaten.

Remember Campfire Girl Mints? They came in single or double layer boxes, and milk or dark chocolate, or mixed. IIRC, they were made by local/regional candy companies, so different areas got different variations on the theme, w/ slightly different choices. I don't recall any references to "thin" or any other body imaging characteristics. If you lived in an area served by a good candy maker, you were in luck, if you had a bad candy maker, the mints could be very off-putting.

Suing the Girl Scouts wreaks of bad karma, unless the claim is way more egregious than cookie labeling... though their box does say "develops business ethics", so I understand the apparent conflict on the face of the cookie box. I think you're on the right track w/ your research, and you should probably buy, and eat several more boxes to confirm or refute your hypothesis.
Enjoy.

I'd vote "yes" if they were called "Thinning Mints."
I'd vote "yes" if the suit were about whatever addictive stuff they put in their Lemonades. Seriously - does anyone know of any support groups for people addicted to their Lemonades cookies?

"Fat Mints" did not test well with focus groups.

The participants of McDonalds and Burger King focus groups disagree...

I've bought several boxes of their Retiremints over the years, but am still working as hard as ever!

Hmmm. . . maybe I could retire on the proceeds of my potential lawsuit.

I’ve never tried the Thin Mints but they look quite tasty. (However, in my younger years I did try an ex-girl scout and she was quite yummy.)



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

and i was a boy scout!

I used to love Thin Mints, and all the other fruits of the Girl Scout Cookie season.



My life goes smoothly and in regular intervals

I voted yes simply because they'd probably settle and I'd get 2 or 3 free boxes!

Nobody is suing Nabisco for Wheat Thins.
