    Girl Scout Cookies

    I swear they put crack in these things. I can't stop eating them. Just don't read the nutritional information

    So what's your favorite? Hands down its Thin Mints for me, preferably frozen. My wife eats up on the Tagalongs

    Samoa Vanilla cookies covered with caramel on top and bottom, and then rolled in toasted coconut, and striped with a rich, chocolaty coating.
    Lemon Coolers Bite-sized bursts of cool lemon flavor in crisp, vanilla reduced-fat cookies
    Trefoil Short, tender, delicate tasting shortbread
    Tagalong Cookies topped with creamy peanut butter and covered with a chocolaty coating.
    DoSiDoCrisp and crunchy oatmeal cookies with creamy peanut butter filling.
    Cafe Cookie Caramelized with brown sugar, with a hint of cinnamon spice,
    Thin Mint A thin wafer covered with a smooth chocolaty coating
    All Abouts Shortbread cookies have a series of Girl Scout messages embossed on top and a rich fudge coating on the bottom!

    I don't know who Kelly is, but I used her site for my cookie descriptions, so I give her credit

    I'd rather buy Publix for $2 a box. Girl scout cookies are yucky. And I sold them when I was a scout, but still couldn't eat them.

    Maybe if you ask nice enough.

    I've managed to put away half a box of tagalongs in one sitting, but this year I've decided to just say no to the crack cookies.

    Oh for cryin' out loud, you've seen my GS pic; forest green dress, yellow sash, it's on the bulletin board over the computer. Gag.

    But do blue pleated skirts turn guys on?

    Well, over here they're called Girl Guide biscuits, and they only come in two varieties I think: plain (vanilla) and chocolate-covered. But they put crack in ours too - I can eat half a pack in one go, easy. They are great for crushing up for cheesecake base.

    I think those were the Campfire Girls, and their brownie equivalents, the Bluebirds. They sold chocolate covered mints. Those were good eating! The mints, I mean.

    mmm i love girl scout cookies. once i had a friend who lived in alabama and who's daughter was selling cookies send me two boxes. one of thin mints and one of tagalongs.

    i love to scrape the peanut butter from the tagalongs with my teeth first, then eat the rest of the cookie.

    Until recently these where our flavour choices as well. Think a fudge-o and a vanilla fudge-o.

    They have now gone to the mint wafer ones.

    The vanilla ones are now being marketed by Christies as vanilla oreos.

    Thin mints should be kept in the freezer, broken into bits, and used as a topping for ice cream. Oh they are also good as a side for mint drinks!

    GS cookies are evil, pure evil I tell you. I am not a sweets person but I cant open a box and not eat it-all!

    Tagalongs are crack with a choco shell, these things are just too good to not be regulated by the FDA. I have managed not to eat a single one this year but man I did in a box of samoas.

    I was a gs, sold something like 2000 of them one year, everyone wants their gs crack

    All this talk of girl scout cookies is causing withdrawl symptoms. The cookies are only sold in the fall in my area.

    I think that you bring up an interesting point. I don’t think that it is common for a box of GS cookies to last long. If a person cracks open a box and there are more than one person around, you might as well put them on a plate because they will be gone in a single sitting.

    I admit that I have kicked back a box of Samoa’s in a sitting before. But the biggest danger with those is they go well with Beer.

    Man, you need help!! Sugary foods with beer??????
    No no no it's salty foods that go with beer. You know - pretzels...pizza...chips.....peanuts....

    What next, beer and Smarties? Beer and Pixie stix? Beer and Three Musketeers? Beer and lemon meringue pie?

    Dude....yuck!
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Samoa's are the best. Not sure why on earth I ordered about 10 boxes of cookies this year, I can't even eat them...I can eat an entire box in a sitting, I could probably eat 2 boxes in a sitting if I didn't feel so damn guilty....
    Going to make the boys eat them all and give 1/2 of them away, otherwise my diet is screwed!!!
    They definately put crack in those things!!!!

    SAMOA! SAMOA!

    Girl Scout cookies rock... unfortunately Canada's Girl Guides don't sell the same cookies. But I guess that's good for my diet!

    They used to make GS cookies in my city and any time you'd drive past the factory you'd be overwhelmed by this sweet lemony smell.

    MMMMMMMMMM lemon coolers. Not only can I eat an entire box in one sitting, but the sitting will last about 10 minutes. These are sooooo addicting.

    I have a friend that that used to drink Dos Equis and eat tropical fruit skittles together. She said they made tasty burps.
