Girl Scout Cookies!!!

What's your favorite?

It’s that time of year. Girl Scout cookies have arrived and we’re already through half of the boxes. They’re addictive. I could polish off a sleeve in one sitting if necessary. But the question is which are the best kind? Did you know there’s technically eleven types of Girl Scout brand cookies? I didn’t. You see, in my house we cut the fat and go right for the best. Let’s meet the contenders.

Thin Mints
Probably the most famous Girl Scout cookie. The chocolate covered cookie is subtly flavored with mint and tastes great fresh out of the freezer. They are pretty basic cookies and could be considered dry. But their greatness is in their simplicty. Also, you get more Thin Mints in a box than some of the other varieties.

Tagalongs
Chocolate, peanut butter, sugar cookie. It’s hard to go wrong with that combination. Sure, it’s a Reese’s/Twix rip-off but who cares? They are delicious and more substantial than their competitors.

Samoas
Also known as Carmel deLites, these bite-sized chewy sins feature sweet caramel-covered coconut with a chocolate drizzle. There’s a flavor sophistication present that most of the other varieties don’t possess.

The Verdict

You can’t go wrong with any of these choices but a clear favorite has emerged. I need to rock about ten thin mints to be satisfied. I usually end up eating a whole tray of tagalongs and feeling ill. With the Samoas, I can have two or three, feel good and satisfy my sweet tooth. The Samoas are just a great combination of texture and flavor. Now, if we could only do something about those Girl Scouts selling all these cookies year-round!
