Craving-buster alert: In Thin Mints and Caramel Coconut (a la Caramel deLites/Samoas), this gum
tastes exactly like Girl Scout cookies! There are also stevia-sweetened mints that taste like Thin Mints cookies. We're especially nuts about the Caramel Coconut gum. Find them at Target locations nationwide... Definitely worth seeking out!

And that's all we've got. 'Til next time… Chew the right thing!
