‘Tis The Season to Have Cookies


It’s that time of year again! When cute little girls with pigtails and vests stand outside every restaurant and knock on every door to sell those cookies that honestly taste like they have been made from the hands of God. We all hate those treats made by the Girl Scouts, and yet, we can’t seem to stop buying them every year when offered. Here’s all the information you need to survive Cookie Season:
First off, Cookie Season lasts from January 12th to March 3rd, 2024 with boxes costing 5 dollars each (except the gluten free option, Caramel Chocolate Chip, which costs 6 dollars). Yes, it’s a little expensive, but keep in mind, each troop only gets 80 cents out of every box sold.
Then, of course, the types of cookies themselves. There’s everybody’s favorite: Thin Mints which are chocolate cookies with a mint-chocolate coating. Peanut Butter Patties (Tagalongs) are cookies covered with peanut butter and chocolate, and Caramel deLites (Samoas) are topped with caramel, coconut and chocolate stripes. Adventurfuls are for those who miss the old S’more cookie. It’s a chocolate cookie with caramel creme and sea salt. And Trefoils are for those who like to stick to the classics. It’s a simple shortbread cookie, inspired by the original Girl Scout recipe. Lemonades are shortbread cookies with lemon icing, and Toast-Yays! have a french toast flavor and are dipped in glaze. The Peanut Butter Sandwiches (Do-si-dos) are exactly how they sound: oatmeal cookies with peanut butter in between. And finally, Caramel Chocolate Chips are just like the timeless chocolate chip cookie itself, but with caramel inside.
If you have a dietary restriction, don’t worry! Girl Scout cookies have all sorts of options. Everyflavor is kosher and Halal certified, and, as stated above, the Caramel Chocolate Chips aregluten free. Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Patties, Lemonades, and Toast-Yays! are all vegan.
Now, you are armed with all the tools needed to buy (or attempt to avoid buying) Girl Scout cookies. Good luck!
