Justin Timberlake has some big thoughts about Samoas versus Thin Mints.

The "Can't Stop The Feeling" singer got in on the debate about the two flavors of Girl Scout cookies on Thursday.

Posting on his verified Instagram account, Timberlake put up a pair of videos talking about the two flavors.

"FOOD FOR THOUGHT. Double tap for DOUBLE SAMOAS," he wrote in the caption. "Comment for Thin Mints."

In the first video, the singer bites into a Samoa.

"You know, this one is for the Girl Scouts of America. We support you," he said as he tasted the cookie. "Ooh, do we support you!"

Apparently, Timberlake's love of coconut makes him Team Samoas.

But he totally gets that the debate is quite "contentious."

"Maybe we should start a survey," he said. "I know everybody automatically thinks about Thin Mints when they think of Girl Scout cookies."

With or without a survey, however, Timberlake shows no sign of abandoning coconut.

Temperatures and humidity will continue to climb on Monday making it feel like a typical hot and humid summer day in northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas. Temperatures will warm into the mid to upper 80s and increasing moisture and instability. This will likely mean shower and thunderstorm chances for the remainder of the Memorial Day weekend.
