Are the cookies made from real Girl Scouts?

/had to say it.
 
2005-01-01 09:44:10 AM
Thin Mints

Uncle Fester

I don't know. I've only ever eaten the Brownies.
 
2005-01-01 09:47:44 AM
Frozen thin mints. That is obvious.
 
2005-01-01 09:48:03 AM
Samoas...hands down. Ooey, gooey, carmel/coconut/fatty goodness.
 
2005-01-01 09:51:46 AM
I'm with you DOM .. Samoas!!
 
2005-01-01 09:55:41 AM
Line me up next to Dom Roark. Mmmm. Somoas. Frozen Somoas dipped in milk, even better.
 
2005-01-01 09:57:31 AM
They don't make Savannahs (sp?) any more so it's just thin mints now.

I thought the girl scouts held off till March or April though.
 
2005-01-01 09:58:32 AM
Dom, I've left my vote box off just so you can win this thread. SAMOAS. mmmm good. Although my favorite cookies are macaroons (obvious) and snickerdoodles.

/back to my diet.
 
2005-01-01 09:58:39 AM
Samoas, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Thin Mints.
 
2005-01-01 10:00:49 AM
I eat my samoas very, very slllloooowwwwlllyyy since I only allow myself 3 boxes a day. Dipped in milk is excellent, too.
 
2005-01-01 10:02:17 AM
Peanut Butter Patties
 
2005-01-01 10:03:39 AM
Samoas are great , but you only get 14 to box. Trefoils ,you get 40.
 
2005-01-01 10:06:35 AM
Peanut Butter Sanwiches, no question.
 
2005-01-01 10:06:56 AM
Forget the "Weener" links. Look's like nothing attracts the TFette's like a good "Cookie" link.

Yay for "Cookies"!!!!
 
2005-01-01 10:07:30 AM
Oh man. I was a GS for 12 years. When I started selling them at age 6 they were $2 a box. What are they up to now?

And they must have changed the names for the north, because while I know what cookies you're talking about, ours were never called Samoas. Can I remember what those cookies were called? Of course not. Definitely not Samoas.

I love Thin Mints. They had these really good cheese crackers for a while back in 1990 or so, those were good too.

Mmmm, those lemon creme ones... *homeresque drool*
 
2005-01-01 10:09:22 AM
Samoas!

And you're implying what?
*smacks the Uncle's arse with a box of GS cookies*
 
2005-01-01 10:09:38 AM
Dreyers Girl Scout Cookie Ice Cream (pops)..

Vanilla Fudge Swirl with chunks of Samoas all thru it. Oh god.
 
2005-01-01 10:10:06 AM
Aha!

Trefoils = Shortbreads

Do-Si-Dos = Peanut Butter Sandwiches

Samoas = Caramel deLights

Tagalongs = Peanut Butter Patties

Yeah, we're boring.
 
2005-01-01 10:10:46 AM
Argh_Dammit: Vanilla Fudge Swirl with chunks of Samoas all thru it. Oh god.

Hey, isn't that an Edy's container w/ a different brand name?
 
2005-01-01 10:11:40 AM
Samoas (mmmmm....coconut), then Thin Mints.
 
2005-01-01 10:12:32 AM
Dom Roark

/just saying.
//there's nothing wrong with that.
///Have a cookie.
 
2005-01-01 10:12:48 AM

I think I paid $3.50/box last year, TAFL.

ThereAreFourLights: And they must have changed the names for the north

Yes...it depends on the distributor/cookie maker. I'm pretty sure it's regional. No, I'm not a GS, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

Gonna see if my youngest rat wants to get into Daisies...we'll see.
 
2005-01-01 10:13:46 AM

Yup.
 
2005-01-01 10:16:42 AM
Argh_Dammit: Vanilla Fudge Swirl with chunks of Samoas all thru it. Oh god.

I have got to get me some of that!

Dom Roark: Gonna see if my youngest rat wants to get into Daisies...we'll see.

I was never a Daisy.

But I did spend the best summers of my life (ages 6-9) at

(I shiat you not)

Friendly Beaver Day Camp, a Girl Scout Camp in Middlesex, VT.

How they got away with that name, I'll never know. But what I wouldn't give for one of my old t-shirts to be resurrected from the grave...
 
2005-01-01 10:23:26 AM
ThereAreFourLights: Hey, isn't that an Edy's container w/ a different brand name?

Yup - dreyers in the South - Edy's up north!

It's the best. the best.
 
2005-01-01 10:25:14 AM
Argh_Dammit: Yup - dreyers in the South - Edy's up north!

Wait... so you have Dreyers AND Breyers?

Whoah... that's farked up.
 
2005-01-01 10:25:48 AM
Much as I love Samoas, I'll take Thin Mints...but they must be frozen!
 
2005-01-01 10:28:55 AM
ThereAreFourLights: Friendly Beaver Day Camp, a Girl Scout Camp in Middlesex, VT.

And the nearby boy scout camp was the Spiting Snake?
 
2005-01-01 10:29:09 AM
ThereAreFourLights: Wait... so you have Dreyers AND Breyers?


They might be subsidiaries of Bristol Myers.
 
2005-01-01 10:31:52 AM
LOL, so was the the Friendly Beaver Day Camp always open for a good time?
 
2005-01-01 10:35:25 AM
Thin Mints (frozen, of course). I also like the Tagalongs, but there aren't many in a box, and I've been known to eat a whole box of them for lunch.
 
2005-01-01 10:36:20 AM
Samoas, definitely.

As for Argh_Dammit's theory regarding Dreyer's/Edy's...I live in Florida and have never even heard of Dreyer's. Edy's, though, I know quite well.
 
2005-01-01 10:41:22 AM
Cuchulane: They might be subsidiaries of Bristol Myers.

A joint venture of Matsumura Fishworks and Tamaribuchi Heavy Manufacturing Concern?

LOL, so was the the Friendly Beaver Day Camp always open for a good time?

Dude!!! We were all between the ages of 5 and 12!!! So. Wrong.

brazil: And the nearby boy scout camp was the Spiting Snake?

Come to think of it, there wasn't a boy scout camp nearby.

That explains a lot...

I remember being a 12 year old webelo (yes, often called we-blow) at boyscout camp and looking longingly at the girls camp across the lake. Funny, it seemed quite right at the time, though it is a bit repulsive in retrospect :-)

Dreyer's is sold west of the Mississippi and Edy's is east of the Mississippi. Just like Hellmann's/Best Foods Mayonnaise.
 
kcm
2005-01-01 11:02:45 AM
there's no Hellmann's in California? I could have sworn there was.. I've never heard of Best Foods Mayo.

Whoah... like when the chick at the grocery store asks you if you want a "bag" or a "sack"... crazy!

And we don't have those "Kum and Go" gas stations either. That's just wacky.
 
2005-01-01 11:11:06 AM
frozen thin mints, all the way!
 
2005-01-01 11:15:06 AM

I can't even bring myself to touch that one. I'm astounded.

From the companies website:

1970s -- Mr. Krause and Mr. Gentle wanted a name that would symbolically represent the two families' partnership, as well as promote the speed of service available to customers. Each family member brainstormed possible company names. The family used the combination of the first letter of each last name - K & G. Kum & Go was born and the rest is history.

Oh, man.
 
2005-01-01 11:28:49 AM
Cuchulane: Oh, man.

I was in Iowa for college and I couldn't help but crack up every time I saw one. I swear I must have photographed every Kum and Go that I saw so I could send the photos back to my friends and relatives.

A friend of mine, while away at college, asked a girl if she wanted to go get a "creemee". She slapped him. Apparently in Philly it's called "soft serve".
 
2005-01-01 12:28:32 PM
Frozen Thin Mint goodness, please.
 
2005-01-01 02:07:57 PM
Foaming: I thought the girl scouts held off till March or April though.

Different states sell them at different times of the year. So here in St. Louis we get hit up at work twice each year, once from the MO people and once from the IL people.

And Thin Mints. There is no other.
 
2005-01-01 03:50:41 PM
I prefer brownies.

/Girl-scouts don't fit in the turkey fryer
 
2005-01-01 03:53:27 PM
I have never been a girlscout cookie fan. (shrugs)
