Girl Scout cookies that is. Yes, it's that time of year again when the little Brownies and Girl Scouts will be knocking on your door as they sell those boxes of cookies they are famous for.
Thin Mints! Yummy! I love to eat these frozen.

Tagalongs ~ a crispy cookie with a layer of peanut butter and then dipped in chocolate.

Trafoils ~ These are great with a cup of tea. They are a shortbread cookie.

Chocolate chip. Now who doesn't love a good chocolate chip cookie?

Samoa cookies are my favorite! They taste more like a candy bar to me then a cookie. Yummy cookie topped with caramel and coconut that is drizzled with chocolate. I could eat a whole box of these and not bat an eye.

Lemon Chalet Creams. If you like citrus flavor, you will love these.

Dulce de Leche ~ This one is new this year. It's full of rich caramel chips and drizzled with added caramel.

Do-si-dos ~ These are a crispy crunchy oatmeal cookie with a peanut butter filling.
I don't think it matters what kind of cookie you get. They are all good. But, the best part about them is the money goes to help fund trips and activities for the girls.

Girl Scouts is a wonderful place for girls to form friends, learn new things and have fun. All the while, staying safe and being taught high morals.

I hope when a little girl knocks at your door or you see a booth set up outside the stores near you, you will stop and get at least one box. Even if you don't want the cookies you can still buy one. Then donate the cookies back to the troop to resell and make additional money.

Trinity is a brownie so I of course will be buying my boxes from her. I'll allow myself one cookie a day and keep the rest in the freezer to enjoy in the months to come.
Oh my! Those cookie pictures came out so big! I have no idea why. Guess it's the calorie monster tempting all of us. LOL

You have some different ones from what we have here in South Florida. Your pictures were too good! My favorite is the peanut butter pattie and it would be very hard for me to eat just one.

I love your support of Girl Scouts. It is a great organization and the cookie sales are the major fundraiser. Who doesn't like Girl Scout cookies??!!

I bought my the other day from a friends daughter that's a brownie.

Remember Camp Fire Girls ? I use to belong to them and when we sold the mints, it was the hardest thing for me to do, because I'll ate them.

It's ok about the pictures Joanne. If they WERE really that big, we'd all only need one. :)

I buy Girl Scout cookies whenever possible and I, too, keep the thin mints in the freezer. Wonder who first started that? I still have an emergency box from last year. Always keep at least one box in case a 'just gotta have something sweet' attack hits me. :) xxoo
