Slideshows Girl Scout Cookies Galore! Morgan Nelson

I was a Girl Scout for most of my childhood. My troop was well known for leading camp song after camp song at the regional Girl Scout camp outs, but by far my favorite part of the whole experience was cookie season. I would beg and plead for my Mom to take an order sheet to her office, she always refused, claiming (correctly) that it wouldn’t teach me the lessons that Girl Scout cookie sales are supposed to instill in young ladies, but I still managed to get her to order enough boxes to last through out the year.

So last week when I was at work and saw someone had taped a Girl Scout cookie order form to the side of their cubicle, I was a little bit angry that my Mom never caved to my pleas for her to do the same. But mostly I was salivating over the boxes of cookies I was about to order.

In case you aren’t as familiar with the family of Girl Scout cookies as I am, here is some photographic proof of their deliciousness. All the pictures are taken from the Girl Scout Website, and let me tell you – the cookies live up to both the pictures and bios. ┬áMy personal favorites are the Samoas and Thin Mints (especially if you put them in the freezer), but they all hold a special place in my heart.

  1. *shyly* I ordered 6 boxes this year from one co-worker’s daughter (who came in and asked each of us, which is what my mom made me do). Now I have other friend’s girls asking me to buy some. I may have to get more. They don’t put very many Caramel de Lites in a box any more, so I’ll get even more of those. This year I’ve ordered everything but the lemon ones and whatever the lo-cal ones are.

  2. [...] after my Girl Scout cookie post yesterday, I started getting really nostalgic. Which meant it was time to pull out the blanket [...]

  3. Oh man, they had these ones (not-so-appetizingly) called Reduced Fat Lemon Pastry Cremes and they ruled. They’ve been gone for years now, so I just eat my sorrows away with frozen Thin Mints and Trefoils.

  4. Frozen Thin Mints are so awesome. Tagalongs are my other fave GS cookie. I was very happy when they brought back the original names, when I sold them I remember Tagalongs were called Peanut Butter Patties and Samoas were Caramel Delights.

  5. Samoas and Thin Mints! It’s funny that over the weekend everywhere I turned there was a Girl Scout with her troops selling cookies. But now that I actually have cash they are nowhere to be found. Thank goodness there’s an app for that.

  6. My parents would never take my order form to work either. My dad said that if I wanted to sell cookies in his office and i couldn’t make it in I had to make my own flyer talking about my goals and what I plan to do with the money. Truth is I am glad he did. I learned so much more having to do the work myself and earned a free week of camp the year I sold twelve hundred boxes of cookies.

    I’m kind of a stickler now though. I won’t buy from girl who are in street clothes or from a girls parents. You either ask yourself in some kind of girl scout attire of the answer is no. (I used to say i wouldn’t but from a girl out of uniform but they are so expensive and i know not everyone can afford them. Which may be what they plan to but with their cookie money.)

  7. It has always been about the Samoas for me but recently I’ve become a fan of the thing mints I put them in the freezer and then have them with delicious vanilla ice cream. HEAVEN!

  8. Thin mints! I’d also love to try the new flavor. I love Girl Scout cookie season! It’s like Christmas all over again.

  9. My daughter is a Daisy this year and she (I) sold cookies. Her goal was 35 boxes, but she ended up selling 112! Unfortunately, Daisy’s are not allowed to go door to door so I took the order to work. I love Samoas and Tagalongs. Since Reese’s Peanut Butter cups are my favorite candy, I guess that’s why I love tagalongs. I can’t wait for February til my cookies come!! :)
