Everytime they come round our house we always order THIN MINTS!!

I have often wondered why they dont sell them in the grocery store!!! -- I WOULD EAT THEM ALL THE TIME IF THEY DID

    Has anyone seen all the different flavors of the Girl Scout cookie ice cream. I think Edy's is the one that makes them. They have Thin Mint, Samoa, and a few other flavors. I haven't tried them but wonder how they taste.

              1 - All Abouts
              1 - Tagalong
              1 - Dosi-dos
              No pinatas here to purchase.
              That's kinda crazy, $35 for cookies. Oh well, the money is for a good cause.

              So I guess $60 for 20 boxes (10 each from the 2 folks selling them in my office) would be right out?

              Oh chill, any calorie-police out there, I give some away (to the Troops overseas is a big push this year), I don't eat them all.

              Except the Thin Mints. NOBODY messes with my Thin Mints. Nobody.


              what do you mean give some away back in the day when they were 2.50 per box i would buy 1case mixed between tagalongs, dosidos, thin mints, and samoas just for me then afew boxes to give away

                I remember those times the year before my mom passed away from cancer she was the service unit chairman and was un able to get a place to distribute the cookies so our house was filled w/ all the cookies that 20 gs troups ordered boy was that fun

                I was a troop cookie mom for a few years and things went OK until the year I was talked into being an area cookie mom for multiple troops. Every available inch of extra floor space in our house was stacked with cartons of cookies.

                That was before the current tightly sealed packaging and the scent would come through the cartons. It was hard to sleep in a room seething with chocolate and mint all night long. So we finally moved the thin mints to the dining room and put the lemon pastry creams in the bedroom. It was a really bad month and I didn't want to eat Girl Scout cookies for about 5 years afterwards.

                My favorite is thin mints used as a scoop for vanilla ice cream.

                  Many years ago when I worked in DC, I bought cookies from Girl Scouts in both Maryland and Virginia. They apparently used different baking companies. One set of Thin Mints had a light-colored wafer in the middle, with the chocolate coating. The other had a dark-colored wafer in the middle. But as far as I could tell they tasted the same.

                  If a pollster did any anonymous, scientific survey, I wonder what percentage of people would admit to having consumed an entire box of GS cookies in a single day?

                  i'll admit to 2boxes in 1day

                    My favorite has always been the Samoas, although here in east TN they call them "Caramel De-Lites" or something like that.

                    They had a cookie for a while that was a vanilla sandwich-cookie type deal with lemon filling and was very tasty. **Edit: I looked it up - Lemon Chalet Cremes - and they still sell them!**

                    Thin Mints are okay but not my favorite. Same goes for Tagalongs (aka Peanut Butter Patties) and Do-Si-Dos (aka Peanut Butter Sandwiches.)

                    And I always loved the Trefoil shortbread cookies, especially with strawberry cream cheese. Yum.

                    Goodness, this brings back memories of all those years I sold cookies... Can't wait for cookie season to come around again!! **Edit: I just looked on the GS website and the difference in cookies is because two bakeries make the cookies - apparently when I sold them in Indiana, ours were from the Little Brownies Bakers, whereas here in TN, the cookies come from the ABC/Interbake Foods bakery.

                      I confess to an addiction to Thin Mints and Peanut Butter Sandwiches. The Mrs. loves the Samoas. Whenever I see that wall of Girl Scouts at the mall with thier tables full of cookies, I feel like an addict trying to navigate past a crack den!
