Girl Scout Cookies are delicious.

There's no arguing that.

And while they're fine as an occasional treat, they're surprisingly easy to overindulge on due to their nutritional profile.

Samoas, for example, contain 11 grams of sugar (with 10 of it being added sugar, the worst type of all) and 3.5 grams of saturated fat per serving.

And that serving is just two cookies.
