Don't be fooled
Don't you just love a good Girl Scout Cookie? Mmm, especially Thin Mints - there's nothing else like them. Especially dunked in some hot tea. Yummo.
However, such was not the case the other nite when my father-in-law innocently offered me one of these delectable cookies. As he handed it to me, he asked if I had experienced any heart burn with my pregnancy. Nope, none, I answered. And as I took my first bite, he told me how my mother-in-law, without fail, always had terrible heart burn after eating Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies. Bah, I told him.
Not even thirty minutes later, and I was feeling the burn. My father-in-law laughed in an "I-told-you-so" kind of manner as I clutched my chest and downed a glass of cold milk.
Who would've thought? Heart burn from chocolate and mint?
