Girl Scout Cookies Get Ranked

Girl Scout Cookies Get Ranked

Amy Larsen, Staff Writer

If you do indeed decide to spend a whole $5 on that box of cookies, here is a list of the top cookies, from best to worst.

  1. Samoas: the perfect ratio of caramel, coconut,  and chocolate make this cookie the top pick, however few there may be inside the purple box.
  2. Thin Mints: little beats the taste of mint and chocolate with a little crunch, and this cookie definitely gets a close second place.
  3. Tagalongs: peanut butter and chocolate is always a good option to cure that craving. However, these aren’t quite as satisfying as Samoas and Thin Mints.
  4. Savannah Smiles: this cookie is a pleasant surprise when buying Girl Scout cookies, with a tart flavor of lemon and a mouthful of powdered sugar on this crunchy cookie.
  5. Do-si-dos: these cookies are not quite as fun as the others, but it is a satisfying peanut butter and oatmeal cookie at its least.
  6. Trefoils: a simple shortbread, by far the most basic cookie; it is a tasty treat but not as flavorful as others.

“Thin Mints and Samoas are by far the most sold cookie,” says Heather Ahman, a long time Girl Scout, “I’m always running out of them.”
