Is a new Girl Scout cookie really good for you?
The Girl Scouts of the USA tried hard to squeeze some actual healthy stuff into their new cookie. And now they’re trying just as hard to defend themselves against criticism that the Mango Creme is nothing but a sugary sham.
The Scouts raised eyebrows last month when they began selling the cookie, touting the partnership with a company called NutriFusion. The South Carolina-based company makes GrandFusion, a product made by grinding freeze-dried fruits and veggies into a powder and adding it to various foods.
NutriFusion says its product “supercharges” the nutritional value of food without altering its taste. “GrandFusion is a blend of fruits and/or vegetables that can significantly increase the nutritional profile, and therefore the marketability, of food, beverage and snack products,” the company says on its website.
