Burning ? of the Day..


Burning Question of The Day [by Viva La Buena Vida]: Girl Scout Cookies

It's that time again....Girl Scout Cookies!  Although I am typically not a cookie person [& Adam wont eat any sweets] I always get a few boxes of GS Cookies!  This year it was Caramel DeLites [2]-Peanut Butter Patties [1] - Thanks-A-Lots [1]

So which kind is your favorite? 

If you need a refresher of what's what, here's Wikipedia's descriptions:
  • Thin Mints: Thin, mint-flavored chocolate wafers dipped in a chocolate coating.
  • Peanut Butter Sandwiches/Do-si-dos: Peanut butter filling sandwiched between crunchy oatmeal cookies.
  • Peanut Butter Patties/Tagalongs: Crispy vanilla cookies layered with peanut butter and covered with a chocolate coating.
  • Shortbreads/Trefoils: A traditional shortbread cookie made in the shape of the Girl Scout trefoil logo.
  • Caramel DeLites/Samoas: Vanilla cookies coated in caramel, sprinkled with toasted coconut and laced with chocolate stripes.
  • All Abouts/Animal Treasures/Thanks-A-Lot: : Shortbread cookies dipped in fudge and topped with an embossed thank-you message in one of five languages, including English, Spanish, French, Chinese, and Swahili.
  • Lemon Chalet Cremes: Cinnamon sandwich cookies with lemon creme filling.
  • Cinna-spins Introduced in 2008 by ABC Bakers, Cinna-spins are cinnamon-flavored cookies that come in 100-calorie packs. Cinna-spins are shaped like miniature cinnamon rolls. Retired and replaced by Daisy Go Rounds.
  • Daisy Go Rounds: Very similar to Cinna-spins, this cookie replaced them for the 2009 sale. They are advertised as low fat and also come in 100 calorie packs. They are cinnamon flavored and shaped like daisies. These cookies are only available from ABC Bakers.
  • Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips Introduced in 2008, they are small sugar- free cookies.
  • Dulce De Leche Introduced in 2009, these are Latin caramel cookies.
  • Lemonades Round shortbread cookie with lemon icing.
  • Thank You Berry Munch Introduced in 2010, has Cranberries and white fudge chunks.

  2. Ohh Girl I used to Love ThinMints!! But with Celiac I can't eat any of their cookies..which is probably a good thing because I'd be really fat on thinmints!

  3. I couldn't tell you last time that we ordered Girl Scout cookies because they're pretty much OFF LIMITS-- I can down a whole box in one setting ;-) I do love me some thin mints and the samoas too! I found a recipe online for cookies that taste just like the samoas. I want to try it sometime! :-)

  6. Ahh! Thin mints! All the way! I bought 3 boxes from a kid who frequents my work (if only a kid in the bar were a rare occurrence at my job)... I've yet to see the actual cookies though... I'll have to ask about those, hehe. Thanks for the reminder!
