Waht about Samoas? They're my choice and they didn't even make the list??

Looks like they are now calling Samoas "Caramel deLites."

They've changed all of the names to more "sensible" descriptive ones. Tagalongs are now Peanut Butter Patties, Do-si-dos are now Peanut Butter Sandwiches, and so on.

I wish they'd go back to the old names b/c they were cool. But I'm sure that somehow, somewhere, someone got offended by one of the names and that sparked the changes.

Oh well, I still buy them every year. :-)

They were tastier when I was shilling them way back in the day. They were also bigger and cheaper. They just taste like cardboard to me now. Cost-cutting at its finest. I often just give a troop $5 and tell them to not bother with the cookies. At least they get the $5 that way. If they sold me a box, they would only get a small percentage of that.

That makes no sense. Girl Scouts are not a for-profit business with individual troupes in free-market cookie competition with each other. A small percentage goes to the local troupe and the rest goes to the national organization to administer all the great things that make the girl scouts the girl scouts.

Not everything that is being sold has a malevolent corporate machine backing it.

Oh, and Caramel deLites definitely!

I've never understood the extreme popularity of the Thin Mint that makes it the 2nd best selling cookie in the U.S. behind the Oreo. Hell, Oreo even makes a Mint one now that is similarly tasty. Can't get the Caramel deLite anywhere else!

I have a lovely friend in North Carolina that has told me that the difference in the names comes from the fact that there are two bakeries that make GS Cookies and that while the cookies are the same, the names differ a bit depending on the bakery. Basically, the names are somewhat regional.
