Girl Scout Cookies: A Ranking

By Michael Olderr, layout editor

Girl Scout cookies have been famous for almost a century. The kinds of cookies have changed a lot over the years, but the love for them has not changed. For the 6 to 9 months that they are available, people flock to get their hands on. This year’s cookies are ones for the ages. 

  1. Shortbread. It’s not that the cookie is inedible, but it is almost entirely devoid of flavor. If it doesn’t have anything to add, then it is not worth anyone’s time.


  1. Lemonade. I don’t think lemons and cookies should mix, like at all. The two different substances don’t mix like the other cookies, so these come off as a half baked idea


  1. Peanut Butter Sandwich. You can only taste the peanut butter, which is a step up from the other two cookies that use peanuts. It has a good taste; however, it has a weird aftertaste that kind of leaves your mouth dry.


  1. Thanks-a-Lot. A passable cookie, though kind of bland. The chocolate part of the cookie makes up for it, though.


  1. Peanut Butter Patties. Chocolate and peanut butter are always a win, and these halfway Reeses are no exception. They might have a piece of shortbread in the center, but the classic chocolatey duo hides it completely.


  1. Thin Mints. Mints are always a win, and these mints are no exception, as these cookies are good. They also have the bonus of making your breath smell fresh!


  1. Caramel Delights. These have the most unique flavor of the cookies on the list. These caramel and coconut flavors go well together and practically melt in your mouth. It is almost the perfect cookie.


  1. S’mores. A graham cracker base covered in marshmallow cream, then on top of that a thick layer of smooth, delicious chocolate. It is a s’more that is also a cookie. What more do you want out of a cookie? This is without a doubt the one Girl Scout cookie that leaves you wanting more.
