It’s…Cookie Time!!

Girl Scout cookies, that is!  Who’s not a fan of Girl Scout cookies?  The proceeds support a great organization, one that contributed significantly to my childhood and young adulthood.  And the cookies?  Delicious.  *Warning: Girl Scout cookie nerdery to follow.*

Most people I know are aware that different Girl Scout Councils may buy their cookies from different licensed bakeries.  I grew up selling cookies from the Little Brownie Bakers – Samoas, Do-si-dos, Tagalongs, Trefoils, etc.  And then that Council switched to the ABC Bakers (the less cleverly named Caramel Delights, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Peanut Butter Patties, Shortbreads, etc.).  I have to admit to being a little sad they changed bakeries…but this year, no matter!  I have a cousin whose child is selling from ABC Bakers, and a friend whose niece is selling from Little Brownie Bakers!  THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS!  WOO-HOO!!  So we are getting our beloved Samoas and Do-si-dos, which are clearly the superior versions, from the one; and we are getting our Peanut Butter Patties – which I personally like better than Tagalongs – and Thanks a Lots (shortbread cookies dipped in chocolate) – which the other bakery doesn’t make – from the other.  Sweet!!

So!  Who are you getting your crack – I mean, cookies, from?  What do you choose?  What are your favorites, and do you have a bakery preference?
