Sugar, Spice & Everything Nice

SamoasComing from Canada, I’m use to seeing Girl Guide cookies every year. Heck, I use to be one (a Girl Guide, not a cookie) and always made my mom purchase them from me. We had two, count ’em, two kinds to sell: Classic cookies (vanilla and chocolate, they come mixed in a box) in the summer and Chocolately Mint Cookies in the winter. Good times.

Well all this week, the Girl Scouts of Northern California are selling their cookies so look for them at your friendly neighbourhood hang out spots. They seem to go for about $3.50 a box.

I am completely overwhelmed by the choices, and need help deciding which one to buy. Thin Mints? Shortbread? Samo-wha???  I have no idea why we need so many different kinds here south of the border.

Which is your favorite Girl Scout cookie, and how do you like to eat them?

    Shortbread is my favorite. The local Girl Scout stopped by a few weeks ago to take my order.

    I like all cookies and try hard to resist them!

    I’m partial to the dunkable kinds. The ones that just sop up all the milk and end up a squishy mess in your mouth. Maybe I will just have to buy one of each box and see which one I like the best. Whee!

    The Samoas and Thin Mints are my favorites. Putting the Thin Mints in the freezer for a couple hours makes them taste even better.

    Platypus, I will try it!! Just bought a box of Thin Mints and they are cooling in the freezer as I type.
