    If a Girl Scout rings my doorbell, I shall purchase two boxes of Thin Mints. No Samoas or Tagalongs this year.

    Love them but never buy them anymore. I cannot tell you how many boxes I bought over the years and devoured myself. :( They used to carry shortbread cookies covered in chocolate, those were my favorites.
    Honestly, I can't think of any GS cookie I dislike. :blush: Kinda glad they're so expensive and I don't know anyone who sells them anymore.

    Already rethinking the Samoas. Maybe one box.

    I should say that it's unlikely a Girl Scout WILL ring my doorbell. Previous years I've bought from a co-worker, but that is no longer applicable. ;)

    Here, they have the girls set up booths at different locations (retailers like grocery stores) and they sell them throughout the cookie selling season. It’s a good cause, so I usually buy some.

    I buy one box in every flavor for the house. I'm personally not a huge fan of sweets.

    I love the lemon, thin mints, and tag along. I always buy a bunch, but I usually don’t get to eat nearly as many as I want/plan to. My family are like locusts. I’ve started hoarding snacks in my desk at work in order to get anything lol.

    I laughed far too hard at this extremely relatable statement! :laugh:

    In Canada the thin mints are only in the fall. This time of year it's only the classics of vanilla and chocolate.

    I didn't order any for the first time in years. Samoas are my JAM!

    And you just reminded me that I have been meaning to get some cash to keep at home for fundraisers like this. Every year, these poor girls on my street come to my house for fundraisers and I never have cash.

    Anyway - I will buy 2 boxes of thin mints and 2 boxes of samoas.

    Those girls around here are fancy! I passed one of those tables they set up and realized I didn't have cash on me, and the little Daisy scout said "oh we take credit cards"... I couldn't say no after that :laugh:

    That's fancy and cunning!

    I don't know anyone who sells them either anymore. My favorites were the Savanaha's (I don't think they are called that anymore). I loved the crunchy cookie.

    I always just hand them money as a donation. Buying the cookies isn't required.

    I generally do this when anyone is selling something as a fundraiser.

    They are not the greatest cookies in the world, but it's a nostalgia thing for me since I was a Brownie (never made it to Girl Scouts).

    I already ordered some Thin Mints, Tagalongs, and Trefoils. I don't like coconut, so Samoas have always been a hard no for me.

    Pro Tip: Freeze the thin mints, then chop them up and mix in with vanilla ice cream.

    I hate GS cookies. I dread being put on the spot to buy any of them.

    You can buy a box and have it shipped to soldiers overseas. I find that's a great option sometimes.

    I guess I could replace the cookies inside with something edible too.
