Samoas, someday I would actually like to get a box of these home from work. They disappear quickly in my vehicle.

Those are my favorite as well. I don't think a box has lasted a whole day!

I just recently threw out a sleeve of thin mints that I found buried in the back of my freezer.. Scary to think of how long they were there, I didn't want to chance it.

Taste them. If you die they were too old. If you just get sick that's normal.

That crow better have his wooly long handles on today.

I like the peanut butter ones myself, but the two are pretty close to being the same :)

GSC taste like something extruded out of the bowels of some ancient machine designed to chop animal waste.

Nothing compares to the taste of fresh out of the oven THC

“Shortcake. It just seems like there aren’t as many calories.” — Stan Hazlett, Lawyer, Lawrence

I object. Speculation. Seems like a lawyer could find some kind of evidence of which had more calories, perhaps on the box.

I'm with RoeDapple all store bought cookies and girl scout cookies taste terrible. One would have to be starving for a cookie to eat the nasty things. Nothing beats a fresh from the oven homemade cookie.....

Thin mints & shortcakes, it's a toss-up. Sometimes I'll make a thin mint sammich with two shortcakes.

farmgal 7 years, 2 months ago

are they still made with hydrogenated oils?

i've never cared for packaged cookies, when it's easy to make them from scratch with real butter and not hdro-oils.

Thin Mints are fine, but Keebler Grasshoppers are better (and cheaper).

I love the Carmel ones, with the chocolate and coconut. Can't remember what they're called. The peanut butter patties are good too.

I invented the thin mint sandwich:

take 2 thin mints, use these as "bread" take another thin mint and stick it in the middle.

I know I know pure genius.

we freeze thin mints and then use them in homemade ice cream!
