If my local grocery store is any indication, Girl Scout Cookie season is about to wrap up.  As someone who grew up with multiple Scout sisters, I have Serious Opinions about the merits of the various treats available.  A life-long fan of the peanut-butter sandwich cookies (which were once called Savannas in my home territory), I also like the Lemonades and the Caramel Delites, but cannot fathom the popularity of the Shortbread cookie.  I also miss the Cranberry Citrus cookies from decades past, and enjoyed the baked cheddar crackers known as Golden Yangles, which I think is a euphemism, leading us to today’s fresh-baked query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) has also decided to remove Thin Mints from the equation, because everybody loves a Thin Mint, and encourage international Spoilerites to substitute your general favorite biscuit, asking: If you can’t choose Thin Mints, which Girl Scout Cookie is the best?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. Considering that North of the border we only have 3 to choose from : white, chocolate, or chocolate mint, you are severely limiting me by removing the best one.
    So if i had to choose between the white and the chocolate I would go with chocolate.
    At least that is all I have ever seen up here.

    First choice is always Samoas, with their chocolate goodness tying together the chewy caramel and crispy coconut into a pleasingly scrumptious mouthful.
