It's that magical time of year when little girls in green take to the strip malls of America and sell boxes of cookies to the masses in the hopes of raising enough money to go to the Girl Scout Jamboree... or something.
If we weren't so nice, we could insert the obvious (and snarky) note that no one's blaming the Girl Scouts for the rise in type 2 diabetes (unlike
Paula Deen some other food-peddler who shall go unnamed) in this fair nation of ours.
We will, however, post the results of a purely unscientific poll conducted by girlscoutcookies.org, a handy website provided by the Girl Scouts of America to help you find the cookies your body craves (just punch in your Zip Code and you'll get a list of places in South Florida to get your cookies).
Here are the poll results:
- Samoas® or Caramel deLites® 34%
Thin Mints 28%
- Tagalongs® or Peanut Butter Patties® 14%
- Do-Si-Dos® or Peanut Butter Sandwich 5%
- Trefoils or Shortbread 5%
- Lemonades™ 5%
Savannah Smiles™ 3%
- Dulce de Leche 2%
- Thank U Berry Munch™ 1%
- Shout Outs!™ 1%
We're personally shocked that Samoas beat
out Thin Mints. So what's your opinion? Which Girl Scout cookie steals
your heart (and wallet) this time each year?
