I'm taking a poll


Please inform me about your Girl Scout cookie purchasing and eating habits. I would really like to know.

Me? I ordered three boxes of Thin Mints and one box of Samoas. Then, when they were delivered today, I bought two extra boxes, one of each. I ate one box of Samoas, pretty much by myself (mmmm, Samoas!), the kids ate one box of Thin Mints, with help from their friends. I will give the other box of Samoas to Steve to indulge in at work (mmmm, Samoas!). I will give one box of Thin Mints to my neighbor (who is inquisitive, like his wife) because he helped me with Cub Scouts and tools last week. I will anonymously give one box of Thin Mints to a lady I'm supposed to be "Secret Sistering" per a Relief Society dealio. That leaves one box of Thin Mints, that I will probably bust open on Monday when the kids are in school. I'll save just a few for them.

Now, it's your turn. Please inform.

Thin what? Tag-a-who? Samoas, samoas, and more samoas.

My mom once hid thin mints and shortbread in her study (because they wouldn't last 30 seconds out in the open with four giant football player sons). When I discovered her secret stash, I couldn't resist taking a few. And then a few more a few hours later, and then some more the next day, until she finally caught me. Instead of getting mad, she pulled out another hidden box, and gave it to me. I love my mom.

I second that Samoa. In fact, just today I was wailing that there were NO GIRL SCOUTS at the supermarket hawking their cookies. I had been counting on the market scouts to make up for the LACK of GS cookie solicitations I got this season. NOBODY asked me. I didn't even know it was cookie season until it was practically over, and now I'm still crossing my fingers. Maybe I'll drive slowly around the neighborhood tomorrow, eyes peeled for the green sash.

I kinda liked your plan, one box of each for yourself.

Courtney said...

I ordered mostly thin mints and samoas with the shortbread thrown in. I like to put my thin mints in the freezer and eat them alone or broken up with vanilla ice cream.

Emily said...

I have a correction. In exchange for watching my kids, doing my laundry, organizing my kids' toys, washing my dishes and vacuuming my house (did I miss anything?), I gave my mom my final box of Thin Mints. It was a good trade.

amye said...

Yes, it was a good trade. I ate half of one Thin Mint sleeve there, and the other half when I got home.

No body asked me to buy cookies this year. :(

Jami said...

5 boxes of thin mints. I gave one away. One box will go to David's Sunday school class next Sunday. Two boxes in the freezer and I eat one immediately. I try NEVER to be alone with them.

It was fun sitting by you at stake conference and seeing your adorable kids:]

Thin mints rock!

I had my thin mints deliverd today as we were walking out to the car to go to church. I really wanted to bust them open right there, but then the kids would want some. Samoas are fabulous. I can't buy them anymore because they are so incredibly fabulous.

Elizabeth said...

Thin Mints would be my very FIRST vote. But, I like the samoas, too. Did you have girl scouts come to your door and you got to order them that way? I want to order some!

We have had bad luck with getting girl scout cookies. One year, we got ours so late, and when I was complaining, the mom apologized and said her father had passed away. I definitely felt like a jerk!!
This year, I didn't order any, but they were selling them outside the store yesterday- woo hoo!! Samoas and tagalongs-my fave!! I ate most myself. They were sold out of Thin Mints- Jeff's fave!

M&M said...

Awesome trade by the way!!

Eliza said...

Once upon a time when I was a Girl Scout and never sold them to anyone but my mom (I was shy) I was strictly a Tagalong girl. Now that I am grown, my palate has matured and I can appreciate every variety of Girl Scout cookie.

No one has mentioned Dreyer's/Edy's "Limited Edition" Girl Scout cookie ice cream that comes out this time of year every year. Thin Mint is the best. No one offered to sell cookies to me this year, so I have had my share of Thin Mint ice cream.

Samoas are the ultimate.

I have to confess, though, that after living in Utah for several years and knowing A LOT of Samoan people, the name seems really odd to me now.

Ashley/Sarah'sfriend said...

I invest primarily in thin mints. Why? With the highest cookie to dollar ratio of any other Girl Scout cookie with chocolate, it's the obvious choice.

Jord said...

Cookies: Samoas, samoas, samoas! Ice cream: Thin mint is the best- for sure!

sarah said...

ASHLEY! - good point. You get like 6 cookies with Samoas. I'm with you.

Abby said...

But WHAT a cookie!

Laura said...

Samoas and frozen thin mints. Put them in the freezer. They are kind of out of your sight for a while and they taste better.

Nancy said...

I actually passed them up multiple times, Neil will have to come to Peoria for his cookies, they are everywhere. But were I to indulge I'd probably buy thin mints for nostalgia sake. I used to eat them at the Cannons where they put them in the freezer, I don't think my mom ever bought any. My parents didn't believe in the girl scouts for some reason.

Austin said...

I've never bought any, but I've eaten many. Of all kinds.

I heart both thin mints and samoas.
