If CSPI Ran the Cookie Drive

Even symbols of Americana like Girl Scout cookies aren’t immune from the food police, so we wondered what the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) and other scolds might do to them next.

Sound crazy? CSPI originally defended trans fats over saturated fats, and indeed, Girl Scout cookies used to use partially hydrogenated oils containing trans fat. Then in 2006, after CSPI changed its mind, the Scouts switched to trans-fat-free palm oil and … ran afoul of another CSPI campaign. Enjoy your Broccollini Bonanzas.
