I guess I can live with a couple less thin mints.  :D

thinking about "girl scouts" always reminds me of that scene in the Addams Family Movie when a girl scout approaches Wednesday's lemonade stand and asks if it's made with real lemons, Wednesday (Christina Ricci in her best role IMO ;D) responds by asking if her cookies are made with real Girl Scouts. ROFL  ;D

I confess that I will probably still buy the Thin Mints. I like 'em, and eat the whole box at one sitting.

In case you haven't noticed, look closely at the weight and container size of prepackaged items you buy in the grocery store.  Consumers will tend to buy a slightly smaller quantity at the same price than the same quantity at a higher price.  This is a proven fact.
Sometimes, they keep the container the same size, but reduce the quantity inside.
