Menchie's Frozen Yogurt Debuts New Samoa-Inspired Flavor

When I first watched The Addams Family ,at age 10, I immediately found a new hero in Wednesday Addams for the way she cleverly turned the tables on a persnickety Girl Scout. I then proceeded to steal this joke and repeat it to people when I was trying to sell cookies as a Girl Scout. (Almost no one laughed.)

Girl Scout cookies may not be made from real Girl Scouts, and in fact contain a host of far scarier ingredients, but damn they taste good. I'm a fan of the old classics: Trefoils, Tagalongs, Thin Mints, and, of course, Samoas. I swear as a small child a single Samoa cookie could satisfy me; now, I could eat the whole box in no time flat and still be game for more.

To save myself some calories (and post-binge shame), I will instead go to Menchie's, which recently debuted an official, Girls Scouts-sanctioned "Samoa" frozen yogurt.

The Samoa fro-yo has all the creamy coconut flavor of the cookie, as well as subtle hints of cocoa. If you miss the crunch of the Samoa, just add some toppings for texture. Menchie's offers multiple types of crushed cookies and candies, but in keeping with the theme, I suggest a hefty scoop of either actual crushed Samoas or Thin Mints. Both are available as toppings for a limited amount of time at most Menchie's.

Now, I know it's easy to overdo it when concocting your ideal cup of frozen yogurt. ($8? Really? For frozen yogurt? Damn that scale!) For that reason, I suggest going to Menchie's during one of their happy hours (times vary by location), during which period all cups are $5 regardless of weight.
