(NBC) - Thin mint E-cigarettes? Not if the Girl Scouts can help it.

The organization is just one company fighting the makers of the flavored nicotine used in electronic cigarettes.

It has joined General Mills and Tootsie Roll industries in threatening legal action for using their brand names like "Thin Mint", "Cinnamon Toast Crunch", "Tootsie Roll", and other flavors that appeal to children.
