Most of the time, I agree with whatever Chrissy Teigen says. She’s smart, and funny, and is a great cook (I mean, have you tried her 3-ingredient chocolate mousse?). But then other times, she confuses me. Like that time recently on Twitter where she talked about her “night eggs” for a better night’s sleep. What was that about?

And then this week she shared her very controversial opinions about Girl Scout cookies, and it’s just something I can’t endorse. Teigen made a picture with three columns: a happy face column, a neutral face column, and a red dislike face column. She lined up every Girl Scout cookie into the last column and said “I did the ranking you’re all too scared to do.”

And she also captioned later, “happy to support. HAPPY. but I’m not doing it for the cookie okay.”

To make up for her decidedly wrong opinion, Teigen then posted another photo saying what the ranking would be if ZERO other cookies existed in the world.

In this one, she ranks S’mores cookies as a frown face in the least favorable position, and Tagalongs as slightly better but also towards the frown face. Regular Thin Mints and Trefoils were put in between “satisfied/OK” and the frown face, and then frozen Thin Mints and Samoas were put in between happy face and that OK face. NO cookie was right in the happy face column.

I personally think that Samoas should be ranked in the smiley-face column. They’re delicious! And frozen Thin Mints and Tagalongs are better than her ranking describes (at least in my opinion). I have not had Trefoils or S’mores, so I cannot speak to those. 

As you might imagine, the comments on Teigen’s photos are a hot mess. No one can agree on where the cookies belong on the chart. One Twitter user writes, “Never knew someone could be so wrong about something,” which I think accurately sums up the entire conversation.
