I gave up eating Thin Mint G.S. Cookies. They were my favorite for years, but I never got thinner.
I find Keebler's Grasshoppers are a good substitute and available all year.

I love chilled Thin Mints & agree with Keebler's Grasshopper cookies. I also like their Lemon Cookies. I too need to hunt for GS cookies since they don't come around any more.

Personally, I like the tag alongs. We had a scout come last night. I ordered one box. I figure if she and her mom are going to the trouble of going door to door I could certainly help the cause.

Thin mints

Samoas (though theyíre called something else by me now)

Are all of my favorites. Iím trying to resist buying this year though.

Samoas (whatever they are called now) are the best! Thin mints and the peanut butter patty ones come second.


Does anyone remember when the thin mints actually had a layer of mint in them? Those were even better!

I've never gotten the appeal of GS cookies. Obviously I'm in the minority! Maybe because I like soft cookies. I'm not complaining- I don't need another treat in my life .

I was a Girl Scout (girl and then leader) for close to 40 years. I have had my share of Girl Scout cookies.

I like thin mints, samoas, and tagalongs the best. No one sells in my circles, so I will have to go to a booth sale, I guess. I'm sure there will be one at the local bank eventually.

Thin Mints all the way! The shortbread with the chocolate (can't remember what they're called) are also good too.

I love the classic trefoils.
But I kinda hate them all together. We just don't have a million people to sell them to and always feel like we aren't doing our share for the troop.

Dipping graham crackers in melted Andes mints equals thin mints all year long. Then you can use your Girl Scouts cookie money on other flavors. I

Trefoils are my favorite! I think the Thin Mints have changed - gotten thicker or something- and I don't like them as much.

I did not see lemonades or thanks-a-lot last year. This year they have another new one - lemon-ups.

Hereís the 2020 cookies and you can do a search where they will be sold and when.

Thanks for the link. I have to wait until February to find a sale in my area.

Thin Mints all the way for me. But, a box of each kind for my husband. We'll have GS cookies through the summer.

different cookies in different areas as they respond to which ones are popular.

I try not to eat cookies so I went to the site and donated $25 worth to those serving in the military. Hope they get their favorites.

I just ordered some today. Thin Mints, always. #1 choice.

Samoas for my boyfriend. I am not a fan. (Of the cookies; of my boyfriend, I am quite fond).

What are the peanut butter chocolate ones? One box of those, too.

My issue with GS cookies is that there are 2 bakeries that produce them: Little Brownie Bakers and ABC Girl Scout Cookie Bakers. I prefer Little Brownie Bakers (Tagalongs and Samoas) vs ABC (Peanut Butter Patties and Caramel DeLites). Unfortunately where I live now is serviced by ABC!
