Someone at work was selling Girl Scout Cookies. It’s been a while since I’ve bought any, so I asked for a “menu” because I do like to try new cookies when they come out. I quickly scanned the list, looking for new treats and old favorites. I didn’t see Samoas. I carefully read the list the second time through.
With a moderate amount of rage in my tone, I turned to her and said, WHERE THE %!&# ARE THE SAMOAS?! She calmly asked where I’m from and then explained that the east coast uses a different bakery and these wonderful little cookies go by a different name in this area: Caramel deLites.
What are your favorite Girl Scout cookies? Thin Mints are my #1 fave and Samoas pull a close second. I’m not going to reveal how many BOXES of cookies we ate in 2 days.
Oh, and a quick question for my east coast buddies. I always remember Samoas having a dark chocolate bottom and drizzle. The cookies I’m getting out here definitely have milk chocolate. Have they changed in the last few years or is this another difference between the bakeries?
