Pairing Girl Scout Cookies With Wine Is A Thing

It's Lactose-Free. Does That Count?

February 21, 2020

This must be the end of the innocence.  I was reading my news feed today during the first week of Girl Scout cookie sales here in Western Washington and came across this article from Fox News about which wines to pair with Girl Scout cookies. 

The question is no longer whole, 2% or skim.  It's now Merlot, Cabernet or Pinot Noir.  Having been a cookie dad when my daughter was in scouting, we never considered the proper wine pairing with Thin Mints.  Now that is a thing. 

Regardless of what you wash down your cookies with, please support Girl Scouts when you see them in front of your local market.  Their local troop benefits.  And pick up a bottle of Rose.  In the event the mood hits you.
