Sorry if this leaves out some non Americans, but I just have to know.

It's that time of year again, and...

What are your favorite Girl Scout Cookies!?

Mine are the Peanut Butter Patties -- by far!

I thought everyone's would be Thin Mints. Is Catie old enough for girl scouting?

Do Canadian Girl Guides sell cookies too?

I was a girl scout. I hated selling cookies, ugh, because all my girl scout friends would get to the people before I could. My parents wouldn't let me call people on the phone to sell cookies. I had to wait until church or school. And by then, the people had already bought from other girl scouts. Hmph. I was the worst seller in my troop.

Mine are peanut butter sandwiches, but I stopped buying them this year. Luckily all my friends kids are old enough so I don't HAVE to buy them. I ended up giving last year's away because we just don't eat them.

Hi Grace. The May family goes for the thin mint cookies. Smile

As for selling the cookies, people where my husband and I work take cookie orders for their daughters or else sell them in front of Kroger's.

Peanut Butter Patties!

In the UK, there are several levels to our girl scouts: Junior School girls, age 8-11, are in the Brownies (how ironic), and High School girls are in the Guides. When in the Brownies, we had an international jamboree where we learnt to make all sorts of flavoured cookies...
Given my taste in chocolates, I would have thought I was a thin mint kind of person, but then there's nothing to beat the way peanut butter sticks to the roof of your mouth ;o) unfortunately, they don't come 'round & sell them; in our neighbourhood, we get the opportunity to buy assorted plants from the Boy Scouts, instead.

Yes, Canadian Girl Guides do sell cookies...but I haven't seen all of these flavors.
I've seen the vanilla and chocolate cream filled waffers and the mint cookies but not the others....
I feel like I'm missing out on something...*g*

Give me the Peanut Butter & Chocolate Patties anytime!!!

No. Wait, don't. They are evil and must be stopped, unless science comes up with a way for making them fat-free and non-caloried.

Samoas are my new favorite. I still love the Thin Mints, but I've defected to the coconut covered caramel chocolatey cookie which is like 500 calories a cookie, but hey, it's worth it! Laughing

Akka, when they take orders next year, tell me what sounds good and I send some off to you!

I guess you'd want a box of the Samoas first Mr. Green !

I'm getting pangs for some peanut butter sandwiches.
Not pangs, but outright hunger pains.
There's nothing sinfully good in the house, but hot chocolate and I've already had a cup earlier. Sad

I was a Brownie for a day, then quit because I didn't want to wear the ugly dress and beanie. Confused

All the cookies sound good to me. I do like the mint cookies.
Emmm.
But the peanut butter sandwiches...now you're talking.

Haven't seen girl scout cookies around for years.

Guess I'll have to bake something sinful tomorrow.

Those are Oreos. I'll have to make a care package of all kinds of American cookies and send off to Germany. Laughing

Do you think customs will open them up? And eat them all?? Shocked

Thin Mints, God, THIN MINTS.

Akka, Thin Mints are a chocolate cookie with a dark chocolate mint coating. They are crispy and delicious, and the *best* way to eat them is to keep them in the refrigerator.

Around here the Girl Scouts sell the cookies in supermarkets and stores, usually setting up a table. The door-to-door days are over, as they should be. I used to go door-to-door when I was a Brownie. I hated being in the Brownies and was allowed to quit after a year. I intensely disliked the ugly uniform-in my day a brown A-line jumper, *orange* and white striped blouse and the stupid beanie.

Oh, and brown knee socks with an orange flappy thing at the top. Worse than the Catholic school uniform I was also wearing at the time, which I didn't think was possible.
