Girl Scout Cookies, Rated Its Been 10 Years Since...

By Vivi Bonomie & Sophia Dorfsman
News Editor & Student Focus Editor
Its that time of the year again when the Girl Scouts invade the halls of our schools, have
taken over the parking lots of our local grocery stores, and invite themselves to the front steps By Austin Iverson
of our neighborhood doors. But just like a bad habit, we invite them back into the doors of our Staff Writer
homes with open arms. In addition to the traditional yet loved Girl Scout cookies, five new cook-
ies were added last year, including Trios, Thanks-A-Lot, Savannah Smiles, Lemonades, and Cran-
berry Citrus Crisps.
Do-Si-Dos: The one sandwich style Girl Scout cookie, Do-Si-Dos,
is basically two graham crackers with a soft, smooth, peanut butter in
the middle. The cookie part is sweet, while the creamy center is salty.
Do-si-Dos are extremely similar to Nutter Butter cookies. In fact, if
youre going to have a peanut butter sandwich cookie, youre better
off buying Nutter Butter cookies. Theyre probably cheaper.

Tagalongs: Another peanut butter flavored Girl Scout cookie, are also SPORTS:

Thin Mints: The quite popular mint flavored delights. Despite the
fact of looking like a couch cushion, Thin Mints leave a not-so fresh
minty taste in your mouth in the long term. Its essentially like eating
a piece of chocolate and then putting a mint in your mouth to make
your breath smell better. In terms of texture, the cookie is way too Time Magazine Person of the

Samoas: The cookie containing the highest amount of sugar out of all
the sold girl scout cookies, at 12 grams, are undoubtedly the ultimate
guilty pleasure. They may look and smell like shattered dreams, but to
everyones expectations, it really never seems to fail. Despite the fact that
they are advertised for being high in fiber, eating two cookies will only
give you 1 gram of fiber.

Trefoils smell like diabetes and taste like it too.
Rah-Rah-Raisins: These are one of the 7 new Girl Scout cookies.
The box description is, Hearty oatmeal cookies with plump raisins
and Greek yogurt-flavored chunks. The unfamiliar term of Greek yo-
gurt-flavored chunks was quite troubling, but was thankfully, barely no-
ticeable. After careful examination, it has been determined that these
cookies are not as chewy as raisin oatmeal cookies should be. However,
the flavors blend quite nicely. Its an acceptable cookie, even for those
who hate raisins.

Toffee-Tastic: Girl Scouts new gluten free cookie, came to the
