Do you like any Girl Scout cookies? (Poll Added)

#1 Post by Robert M yers »

Just got the notice and of course buy them for support of the scout in the family.
The first year I donated them back, but last year I bought the whole range but the only ones I went back to were the Samoa and Lemon. Thinking of going all Samoa (or donating again). What’s everyone’s choice.

Well it’s true I probably could do that these days. I used to get an adorable phone call With the sales pitch. These days it’s a text message with a link [head-bang.gif]

Flawed Poll, you can only make one selection.

Tagalogs and Thin Mints.

In the last 20 years I only ever ate them at work. I and other people would buy them for a co-worker's daughter, eat one or two, and put the rest in the pantry.

Thin Mints haven’t been as good since they switched to a chocolate cookie. I’m still a sucker for the occasional Tagalong and Samosa.

No, but that's not a slight on the girl scouts, as I can't think of any commercial/prepackaged cookies that are good. If I'm going to eat a cookie it's going to be homemade or something from a local bakery.

Trefoils pair exceedingly well with Angry Orchard Crisp Apple cider. It makes for an apple pie a la mode feel.

Thin mints, just out of the freezer, then dipped in peanut butter, is also delicious.

A few years ago, under duress from my SIL, whose daughter was hawking, I tried Samoas and one other unremembered variety. The memory almost makes me retch.

A friend has two cases of the stuff.........from both one and two years ago. His daughter will not allow disposal, but the family members feel as you do.

Thin mints for me as well. All my purchases were from parents pushing them hard in the office. With Covid, wonder if sales will suffer tremendously?

This year (maybe in the past too)?

1. Seems easy to order online
2. Can donate them to a charity.
3. Don't get harassed by 10 screaming little kids.

Flawed. Needs to be a checkbox poll, not radio buttons.

Samoas are top of the heap, but I also like Tagalongs and Thin Mints. Lemonades on occasion.

This. Tagalongs and Thin Mints. I can order 10 boxes of each; the least you can do is open the poll up to multiple choice.

I've convinced myself that Jesus made Peloton to help me deal with my Girl Scout Cookie addiction.

From the tone of these posts I’m pretty sure nobody really gives a cookie..... but there are really two different worlds of Girl Scout cookies.

Thin Mints!! Stick them in your freezer...so yummy when frozen. Or dip them in your coffee or crush them and put them on ice cream.

This thread reminded me of the 2 year old Girl Scout cookies we have sitting in the pantry. We always buy them and then never end up eating them. Samoas, Thin Mints, and Do-so-dos are the usual suspect. I’m going to tell my wife to start just donating or like other suggested just give them away.

2 years!!! We need a tasting note on one of those. [cheers.gif]

I think my Samosa’s were stale after 6mo?

It seems maybe the way to go If you buy a bunch like I’m now hooked into [rofl.gif] (besides donation) is go deep and freeze the thin mints then pulse them on some ice cream. Wonder if that would work for any others?
