It’s that time of year again. The weather’s getting warmer, finals are almost upon us, and Girl Scout Cookies seem to be being sold on every corner, including in the DSU Breezeway. If you’ve ever wanted to buy a box to solve your sweet tooth craving, but unsure of where exactly to start, here is a list of our favorite cookies, ranked 1 out of 5. 


Raspberry Rally

Rating: 1/5

  • In our opinion, this cookie tastes like playdough, and not enough like raspberries, or much of anything for that matter.



Rating:  2/5

  • We aren’t a huge fan of artificial S’mores flavor in general, the ones you make over the fire are worth it! 



Rating: 2/5

  •  While the taste of refreshing lemon cookies is enjoyable, we just weren’t a fan of these ones in particular. 



Rating:  2/5

  • It tastes too similar to Lance Peanut Butter Crackers, and not enough like a cookie.


Toffee Tastic

Rating: 3/5

  • We enjoyed the toffee taste, but it’s not one of our diehard favorites because it’s a little dry and crumbly, so not ideal for people like us who are prone to messes, or for long car trips where you might not want to drink very often.



Rating: 3/5

  • LOVE LOVE LOVE dipping these in my milk or coffee. Gotta love an original butter cookie!


Thin Mints

Rating:  3.5/5

  • Love the refreshing taste, it reminds us a lot of a York Peppermint Patty. We also prefer putting these in the freezer, or as a topping on ice cream!



Rating: 4/5 

We love Reese’s cups, so it’s no surprise that these are a favorite. You can’t go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate!



Rating: 5/5

  • Caramel! Not only that, it’s also a brownie. Ugh, I can’t, I love it. 



Rating: 5/5

  • It’s a cookie that combines our three favorite things..chocolate, coconut, and caramel. I mean, how could you not love it? They make wonderful cookies for late night snacks to satisfy a sweet tooth or when having a mental breakdown. Be careful though, buying one box usually leads to more!
