An American Classic: Girl Scout Cookies

It's that time of year! I'm on my way into the grocery store, driving by the entrance of my neighborhood, and answering a doorbell... and everywhere I see cookies. The smiling and sweet faces of girl scouts are all over! Some people dread this time of year because they find it "annoying," but I truly love it! I think the idea behind it of teaching the young girls valuable lessons is very important, and on top of it all... those cookies are just soo yummy! I always try to limit myself to one box {ok, maybe two boxes} of cookies each year, but it's so hard not to resist more. I wish I could say that I had been a girl scout {I would've been such a good one!} but there wasn't a troop in my area when I was young. I still enjoyed the cookies just the same though!

                Favorite Girl Scout Cookies

I would say the "peanut butter patties" or "tagalongs" are my favorite by far, but I also always have to grab a box of samosas {for myself - love that coconut!} and a box of thin mints for my mom. Mom I know you're reading this and wondering where your box is... it's coming I swear!

Also on a side note, I wonder if they purposely start selling cookies right around the time everyone is just about out of willpower from their New Year's resolution diets? I have always made jokes about it, but if they did it that way strategically they are total marketing geniuses.

What are y'alls favorite varieties of girl scout cookies?

  1. Samoas are my favorite! My parents always put a box in my Easter basket, so I try not to eat too many with the exception of that box!
