Aaron Rodgers Clears Up the Great Oscars Girl Scout Cookie Controversy

Sunday night’s Oscars telecast left us with several unanswered questions – like “Who is the guy who won Best Supporting Actor?” or “How is this show four hours long?” – but thankfully, we can now close the book on one great mystery: “Why did Aaron Rodgers buy Savannah Smiles?”

For those who may have dozed off, during the show, Oscars host Chris Rock implored audience to “reach into your millionaire pockets” and buy some Girl Scout Cookies from his daughters’ troop. And reach they did – buying more than $65,000 of the treats.

Yet, somehow, despite being a two-time NFL MVP, Rodgers – who was there with his girlfriend Olivia Munn – ended up with the crummiest of all Girl Scout Cookies, the lowly Savannah Smile, which prompted TMZ Sports to publish the salacious (yet entirely accurate) headline “Aaron Rodgers Buys Worst Girl Scout Cookies.”

Well, late Monday, Rodgers took to Twitter to clear the air. Turns out, the Smiles were given to him – if he had a choice, he would’ve gone with anything else.

Of course, while he might not know the names of the cookies, Rodgers’ taste is on-point: Reds are Tagalongs, greens are Thin Mints and purples are Samoas – all of which are way better than Savannah Smiles.

Too bad Rodgers gave up all Girl Scout Cookies for a more healthy lifestyle.
