Justin Timberlake Joins the Insane Girl Scout Cookie Debate

Published on July 20, 2021

The beloved singer/songwriter is the new actor in the controversial debate and certainly doesn't stop him from saying his opinion. Timberlake is seen eating sleeves of Girl Scout Cookies and commending Samoas as a choosing snack in a short two-part video posted to Instagram. 

He subtitled the videos, “Samoas vs Thin Mints… FOOD FOR THOUGHT. Double tap for DOUBLE SAMOAS. Comment for Thin Mints.” So far, this video has 540,000 likes and 14,000 comments! 

The debate, which seems to resurface each year, also featured other famous people. Reese Witherspoon introduced Girl Scout cookies to a website and called herself #TeamThinMints last week. 

However, the post of Timberlake prompted more debate. Instead, Miguel, 34, said, "Frozen Thin mints all day bro," after David Cho asked whether Timberlake wasn't going to have an oreo instead. “This is a discussion about Girl Scout Cookies…Oreos are a different movie! Lol,” answered the singer of the “Man of the Woods.”

Each year, girls find innovative and new ways to achieve their goals for selling cookies.

Only a registered girl scout can sell you cookies. To find Girl Scouts selling cookies in your area, go to girlscoutcookies.org or use the Girl Scout Cookie Finder app.
