When will the helpful eating stop?

Paradise Donuts, which has stores at 10607 W. Maple and 3107 W. Central, is taking advantage of Girl Scout cookie season by making doughnuts topped with three of the perennial favorites: Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Sandwiches and Lemonades.

Paradise owner Marilyn Wright raided a troop cookie sale at a local Dillons to get her first supply of cookies, and she’s prepared to buy more depending on how popular the doughnuts are. The more doughnuts people buy, the more cookies Wright buys. Girl Scout cookie sales continue through late March.

Call-ahead orders are encouraged.
