     Girl Scout Cookies - Are they Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Do-Si-Dos, Savannahs?
    Entertainment: Food
    The famous Girl Scout cookies have come around again this year. We have always liked the thin mints and peanut butter sandwiches, and hoard them in the freezer. Apparently, we are not the only ones. Everywhere I have worked, there has been one or more Girl Scout parents helping out by selling cookies at work. And they never have to pressure because most people like them. In fact the number one complaint that the Girl Scouts hear is that no one offered to sell them any cookies.

    No one was allowed to sell cookies before the 14th, and punishment is very stiff. Any troop members caught selling before "cookie day" lose all the money that their troop would have earned.

    There are two national bakeries that bake the cookies, the one in our region is using the ABC Bakers company. This explains why you may have heard different names for the cookies. And also, certain cookies are only available from each bakery. The thin mints, peanut butter sandwiches, and shortbread are required to be baked by both bakeries because they are the most popular.

    Cookie Name - Also Known as  
    Caramel deLites - Samoas or S’mores
    Peanut Butter Patties - Tagalongs or Hoedowns
    Shortbread - Trefoils
    Thin Mints - Thin Mints
    Peanut Butter Sandwich - Do-Si-Dos or Savannahs

    The Wikipedia article, Girl Scout cookie, has a concise explanation of the products

    The Girl Scouts cookie web site

    Here are links to ABC Bakers, with pictures of the cookies.

    Here is a link to Little Brownie Bakers, the other maker of Girl Scout cookies.

    As a fund raising deal, the Girl Scout cookies are very good in that the bakery only takes 83 cents of the $3.50 per box cost. The Girl Scouts organization splits the money up between the councils and local troops. The money helps pay for Troop program activities, Troop awards, and Girl & Volunteer program Services. You can also donate your cookies, in which case they get delivered to a food shelf and then you can deduct the donation on your taxes.
