What's your favorite Girl Scout Cookie?

So I just placed an order for four (4) boxes of Girl Scout Cookies.

2 - Samoas
1 - Trefoil
1 - Tagalongs

And since I've got a 3 month wait (at least it seems like that) I wondered what your favorite Girl Scout cookie was and why. That and I'm bored.

Samoas (or Carmel Delites, as they are called on some order forms) are the best!

Too bad there are only about 15 cookies in a box.... I have a feeling there is about as much fat content in those 15 cookies as there would be in a whole package of Oreos.....

TASTY!

I don't know the name but I like the ones with coconut and chocolate.

Of course, it is the ones with the lowest cookie count per box.

It's all about Tagalongs for me. Thin mints are a close second, but nothing says 'ideal recovery snack' like a handful of tagalongs.

It's going to be so hard to give these away! I bought 6...my girlfriends daughter hits me up every year and she's so cute I can't say no! One box each of carmel delights, peanut butter patties, shortbread and some reduced fat kind...I think it was the cartwheeles. And two boxes of thin mints. I just CAN'T eat cookies now...trying so hard to take off the holiday weight. I've done okay so far lost 5 pounds. Anyway...I'll miss them...desperately! Not the 5 pounds...the cookies!

My fav thing to do with the thin mints is to keep them in the freezer and crush them up and put them on vanilla ice cream.

Once I made a pie out of two boxes of them. I made a crust out of the crushed cookies and mixed up crumbled pieces in chocolate pudding. I pressed the crust on the bottom and filled half of the pie crust with mint chocolate chip ice cream and set it in the freezer. Then I took it out and spooned the pudding on top, and stuck whole cookies all over it and put it back in the freezer. It was a HUGE hit.

cycleprincess - I can come take some of those cookies off your hands so they aren't such a temptation.

I can't believe how many of you are apparently accidentally not voting for the Lemon Creme, the queen of all cookies.

Used to be Thin Mints, but Tagalongs rock my boat these days. I generally love peanut butter and chocolate anything.

I don't like any of them anymore. They used to all taste good except thin mints, but now, my palate evloved and nothing tastes good if it doesn't come from Godiva.

I'd be interested in seeing the poll if you couldn't vote for thin mints. I love dosidos too. That and a quart of milk.
