We hit the road for Missouri on Friday. My sister’s kids are at my parent’s house {again} for the week and my mother really wanted my kids to play with their cousins. I couldn’t refuse, and playing in Missouri seemed a heck of a lot more fun than sweating in my barn kitchen. So here we are…and since the cousins won’t be together on the actual date, we decided to celebrate the 4th of July early.

Nestle Girl Scout Crunch

To celebrate, we grabbed some treats and fireworks and had a party! I found these awesome Girl Scout Crunch bars at Walmart and knew I had to get them – I had a great idea for Red, White, & Blue Girl Scout Crunch Ice Cream Parfaits… With three generations of Girl Scouts in my family, I knew these Girl Scout Crunch bars would be a big hit!

3 generations of girl scouts
I was a Girl Scout when I was a little girl in Germany, my wonderful mom was one of our troop leaders, and my fabulous daughter was a first time Girl Scout this last year. I have many fond memories of Girl Scouts. Growing up in Germany certainly had its advantages – and reflecting back on my Girl Scout career makes this really clear to me. I got to do things with the Girl Scouts that I still can’t believe we did. Not one, but twice, did we take trips to Amsterdam to visit the tulips and the Anne Frank House.

We also went on a weekend bike trip to a youth hostel located in an old castle, AND we also got to go to Our Chalet – one of five world centers of the Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, located in the Swiss Alps. I still have one of the yellow and while checked bandanas my mom made for my whole Girl Scout troop so we would be easily found on our travels. It makes me laugh when I look at it, and it reminds me of the bandanas the kids wore in The Sound of Music. My mom was quite the talented Girl Scout leader.

My daughter also really enjoyed her year with the Girl Scouts and she got to do some really fun things as well. Her troop had some great science lessons, took a trip to see Disney on Ice and a trip to Adventure Land in Des Moines. I went along on that trip as a chaperone and we had a lot of fun.  She really enjoyed her year and is begging to be a Girl Scout next year as well.

So of course I had to pick up those Girl Scout Crunch bars. I’ve sold my fair share of Girl Scout cookies over the years…and truth be told, I kind of like them.


To celebrate the 4th of July, we made ice cream parfaits. Everybody loves parfaits {you’ve seen Shrek, right??}. They’re fun and delicious and I love the addition of the fresh fruit and Girl Scout Crunch bars. Making your own probably doesn’t require a recipe…but here you go anyway!

Of course, you don’t have to be a Girl Scout to enjoy these parfaits! And they taste equally as good in a cone bowl and the bars taste pretty darn good by themselves as well. You’ll definitely want to grab a box {or three} of the Limited Edition Girl Scout Crunch bars before they are all gone!

So turns out, our favorite flavor is Thin Mint – surprising, because that’s not our favorite Girl Scout cookie!! Which flavor do you think would be you favorite?
