Girl Scout Cookies Differ Depending On Where You Live

Post by Riddick » 02-19-2016 04:17 AM

When you bite into a Thin Mint, you probably aren't wondering where it comes from. (The Girl Scouts, of course.) But wait, there are two bakers. And they make two very different Thin Mints: One is crunchier, more minty. The other is richer with a smooth chocolate coating.

Which cookies are you eating? Your local Girl Scouts decide. Depending on which Girl Scout jurisdiction you’re living in, your Thin Mints or Samoas might not be the same as someone in a different council jurisdiction say, 30 minutes away.

Along with telling you which you're getting, the LA Times' good cookie experts have broken down the differences between the two bakeries’ cookies (and importantly, how they taste) in a helpful graphic. Knowledge is power. LINK

Just get me the recipe. I'll take it from there.

It's not just sad it's criminal!! What are they doing adding caramel color, anyway?

What unmitigated gall! I'm thoroughly appalled. When is this sort of crap ever going to stop? Or will it NEVER end?

Blackmail, that's all it can be, and that's what it is. They've got the goods on the Girl Scouts for sure... Another victory for the ICCC - aka the International Caramel Color Conspiracy!!
