Girl Scout Cookies



I was never a scout, and that was probably for the best. But I do enjoy the cookies Girl Scouts produce. Yes. In my world I imagine Scouts being kids working in cookie factories. Anyway.

Thin Mints

Kind of the classic Girl Scout cookie, and sure… I can see the allure. They’re all refreshing and all, but honestly, aren’t they getting a bit boring? Dull? Haven’t we tasted this cookie just a bit too many times before? Maybe, just maybe, it’s time to live a little and elect not to go with the classic and try some more exciting choices. Should you choose to pick these up, though, be advised that they taste better frozen.



I, for one, am just OK with tagalongs. The combination of crispy cookie crust and creamy peanut butter—the “CCC&CPB” if you’d like—is nigh perfect. Tagalongs is the Thin Mints for a new and more cynical millennium.


Lemon Chalet Cremes

The disappointment in the test. I can only assume the Girl Scouts wanted to go French and fancy with their Chalets, but the result is less than satisfying. The cookie to creme is just off, with way too much cookie and too little creme. And to add insult to injury, the creme tastes super-artificial. If anything, this cookie would work better for a pie crust.



My personal favorite. Coconut? Chocolate? Caramel? How can you go wrong with that combination? Put on some Floyd, eat a couple of Samoas, and go on a taste-trip. Note: Samoas is one of the few cookies that taste better fresh than frozen.


Dulce de Leche

Again with the fancy stuff. I don’t get it. This cookie was recommended by the six year old who sold it to us, and I almost decided to go back and demand my money back. Why should I have to pay for her underdeveloped taste"?
