What Your Favorite Girl Scout Cookie Says About You

Pin It
When I was growing up, the local news station used to broadcast a commercial in February in which excited young Girl Scouts would yell into the camera, "THE COOKIES ARE COMING!" 
Always an exciting time because I could get my delightful Thin Mints that we would immediately put into the fridge and not consume until juuust the right frigid temperature. No tepid Thin Mints for me and my family!

DK and I are lucky enough to have a niece who is a Girl Scout, so you could say we have an inside source. I told DK that I would be placing an order, knowing we definitely wanted Thin Mints. "Don't forget the Caramel Delights (I believe they are known by a different name these days)." It got my thinking about what our respective Girl Scout Cookie vices says about us. DK= crazy chocolate, caramel and coconut. An amalgamation of flavor, interesting texture, and 1-way ticket to crazy sugar town. 
Me= simple, reliable, timeless, 1-way ticket to crazy (cold) sugar town.

What Your Favorite Girl Scout Cookie 
Says About You

Thin Mints:
Thin Mints

The Golden Retriever of cookies. Reliable, trustworthy,classic. You favor simple flavors, a satisfying crunch, and a good J Crew button down.

Caramel DeLites/Samoas

Outgoing, gregarious, and the life-of-the-party. Matching your socks is likely not a priority. 

Peanut Butter Patties/Tagalongs
An introverted extrovert. You wish you were like the Samoas, but you just aren't and you need to get over it and be happy with your peanut butter loving self.


You're a meat and potatoes and gravy kind of person. Your tastes are a little more simple, and your tum-tum may not be able to handle that spicy chocolate!

Do-Si-Do/Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookie
You are organized and thoughtful. You are very task-oriented and likely love your Erin Condren Life planner. Additionally, you have mastered the art of consuming this cookie: take it apart, lick the peanut butter, throw the cookies in the air, let them drop to the ground, stomp on said cookies. Because these cookies are disgusting.

Cranberry-Citrus Crisps
My sister-in-law calls these "cranberry flavorless cardboard devil wafers". So if you enjoy these, you likely are into witchcraft and sorcery and fantastical magic, and thus I cannot have anything to do with you.


You love brunch. Any meal combining bacon, eggs, vodka and tomato juice and you are IN. You enjoy event planning, and you die over a good table scape. You may also be called "boujie".

This one must be new because we didn't have this crap when I was a kid. If you like these, you may also enjoy cleaning out waste disposals. With your tongue. Just kidding, raisins are nature's candy that not only look like poop, but will make you poop, as well.

Savannah Smiles

Your effervescent personality is more delicious than the champagne that you over-indulged in over the Holidays. You are a kind and gracious host, but you can give some side- eye the likes of which Nene Leakes has never seen!

Thanks a Lot

These semi-sweet morsels are just the right amount of sweet and bland, just like you. You may have RBF, or appear to be dead behind the eyes. And you know what? That's ok. Some of the best Reality TV stars have been dead behind the eye and look where they are now?!

Audriana Patridge from The Hills. Perfecting the dead-behind-the-eyes look since 2009

Kourtney Kardashian. looking professional in sequins. ;-)


Not your grandma's toffee! You're a sarcastic heathen with a heart of gold, much like Karen Walker from Will & Grace.
