Those Girl Scouts are Marketing Geniuses

Put down that freezer burned box of Thin Mints you’ve been hoarding in your freezer and prepare yourself for possibly the greatest news you’ll hear all day.

Lip Smackers has just created a line of Girl Scout Cookie Flavored lip balms..

That’s right. The gangs all there: Thin Mint, Shortbread, Peanut Butter Sandwich, Caramel Delights, and the Peanut Butter Pattie ones I refuse to call Tagalongs.

These lip balms combine the taste and smell of the cookies, without the extra pounds and guilt you feel after downing a box of Caramel Delights in one sitting. The only downside is developing a nasty habit of licking your lips, but thankfully the good people at Lip Smackers accounted for this and made each balm hydrating. Buy them individually or get all five in a set for $5 at Wal-Mart and Claire’s stores. Come 2012 they’ll be available in the liquid lip gloss version too.

So if you can’t wait until those uniformed devils make it to your house with that glorious order form you can’t pass up.. this may just tide you over. While you’re not able to encouraged to¬†actually eat the cookies this way, if you’re really in withdrawal they might offer you that little fix you need. (Just try not to ingest too much flavored wax.)

What do you think? These could be awesome stocking stuffers for the upcoming holiday.. and BONUS make your girlfriend/boyfriend wear your favorite flavor and you’ll be tasting cookies all year round. Would you try this in your favorite Girl Scout Cookie?

Just so we’re clear, turning them into lip balms won’t keep me from eating them.
