Favorite Girl Scout cookie

Yesterday I was waiting for Gary outside Lowe's and there were Girl Scouts selling cookies . At first I resisted and then mother guilt ( I was a girl scout & a girl scout leader) overcame me and I bought a box of Tagalongs but my second favorite are Samoas so which are yours ?

The classic thin mints, capable of inhaling a sleeve at a time.

This board is diet unfriendly today, what with Girl Scout cookies and po'boy sandwich discussions!

Thin mints hands down for me! They are great frozen by the way. I bought a box from the Girl Scouts selling in the lobby of the grocery store. Will come in handy some day when I have a chocolate attack.

I bought 10 boxes from a neighbor kid - hey, her dad has a snow blower and has helped us through a few snow storms. Voted Do-si-dos but must say DH and I loved the new oatmeal/cranberry cookies. Disaster for my low carb/sugar diet, but worth it

Thin mints all the way here...and frozen is sooo much better.

I was a Brownie and a Girl Scout, and I always buy at least a box from a seller when I see them. I remember doing it myself door-to-door, cause it paid for my way to summer camp when I was a kid. The guilt of walking past or not answering the door gets to me every year, and I think of some poor little girl wanting to attend summer camp if only I would buy that box of cookies from her.

Trefoil?

I love it when they go door to door in their uniforms to sell.

I have been on a successful diet and have lost about 50 pounds in the past couple of years. This year when the girl scouts came to the door I paid for the cookies but told them to please not deliver them. They are very nice neighbor's children, so I felt obligated to do something.

Ten boxes of Thin Mints are headed my way this year (and I agree on the freezer comments). Buying co-workers' children's Girl Scout cookies may be one of the few things I miss about having a job!

I got my box of Samoas this morning. They're gone now. My pancreas may never forgive me.
