Yes, the Girl Scouts hawk two different types of S’mores cookies. But you may only ever get to taste one or the other, depending on which market you’re in. So these two tie for being equally scrumptious and reminiscent of everyone’s favorite fireside treat.
Still, we’re nothing if not competitive, and ranking these cookies brings a certain comfort. Besides, I think we both know that not all Girl Scout Cookies are created equal. So, sit back, crack open a box of your favorite variety and peruse our totally non-scientific-and-personally-biased countdown, from least to most favorite Girl Scout Cookie.
Finally, the Girl Scouts came out with a more classic chocolate chip cookie! New to the lineup this year, these even have rich caramel and a hint of sea salt. So, yeah, we’re not mad at ‘em. Did we mention they’re gluten-free too?
We’re not saying these chocolate-dipped shortbread wonders could give Pepperidge Farm’s Milano cookies a run for their money, but… no, wait, that’s exactly what we’re saying. Thank you, indeed!
Call us purists, but we love a good shortbread cookie. And these have a bit of nostalgic appeal since they’re in the shape of the Girl Scouts’ iconic trefoil. Bring on that crunchy, buttery goodness.
Let’s just all be honest with ourselves here: These lemony spheres come up woefully lacking when you compare them to Girl Scouts’ other lemon cookie (more on that later). We’re not saying we’re not going to scarf down an entire sleeve right this second, but still.
If you’re a peanut butter fanatic, this is undoubtedly the cookie for you. The PB is so rich and creamy that it stays with you. Like, literally — it’s one step away from establishing residency in the roofs of our mouths.
While we realize Thin Mints are the best-selling Girl Scout cookie flavor, we’re pretty sure that’s simply because people who eat Thin Mints buy more of them to account for the fact that they’re, you know, thin. Don’t get us wrong — they’re delicious, and we don’t fault anyone for hoarding boxes.
It’s our deeply held opinion that Peanut Butter Patties do not get nearly enough fanfare. In fact, they’re dangerously close to shooting straight to the top of the list thanks to layers of crunchy cookie, creamy peanut butter and a delightful chocolate shell.
Every Girl Scout Cookie flavor ranked from worst to best.
