Favorite Girl Scout cookie?

I just saw the sales figures for Girl Scout cookies and I wanted to see if they are representative of a random population of people. This group of rag-tags and no-goodnicks seems to be the perfect population to ask.


Only look after you have voted:

Q: What are the best-selling Girl Scout Cookies?

A: Our biggest sellers are:

25% Thin Mints
19% Samoas®/Caramel deLites™
13% Peanut Butter Patties®/Tagalongs®
11% Peanut Butter Sandwich/Do-si-dos™
9% Shortbread/Trefoils

The other varieties combined account for the remaining 23%.

Samoas. No-brainer.
Thin mints are pretty damn enjoyable as well though.

I have not been able to eat GS cookies for a long time, but I remember loving Samoas.

The two peanut butter ones for me. (which I think are tag-a-longs and do-si-does).

My box said Samoas. They are my favorite, with the peanut butter ones closely following.

They are really good cold... Samoas is a distant second, though.

It's too hard to pick one. Can we pick three or four?

Out of the current offerings, Thin Mints. The white chocolate macadamia nut Aloha Chips were my favorite.

The question is, are they worth 4 bucks a box (or is that regional pricing)?
