Girl Scout Cookies vs. Weight Watchers Snacks

The other day at work we got into the last of the Girl Scout cookies. I told my friend that Weight Watchers makes a snack bar that is very similar to the thin mints that I love. This got me curious and so I broke out the points calculator. The cookies had 3 points for 4 cookies and the WW chocolate mint snack bar had 2 points for one bar. Then came the clincher. After reading the ingredients, the cookies seem healthier and more wholesome than the chemical laden overpriced Weight Watchers products IMHO. Cookies taste better too. Just watch those portions and count your points and you too can eat yummy Girl Scout cookies on the Weight Watchers plan.
