This Past Weekend.. WOW!

My Girl Scout Troop officially kicked off our Cookie Sales on Friday at the School. Saturday afternoon it was gray and dreary and raining, it was also our first booth sales, thankfully we were allowed to sell the cookies inside the food court. Sunday morning the day was overcast, thankfully there was no rain however it was cold cold cold, we thought we were going to end up standing there selling cookies while it snowed it was so cold. Thankfully no snow. So we bundled up as much as we could and kept hot drinks in our hands to stay warm...

That was my weekend, selling Girl Scout Cookies in the cold, wet, rainy weather..

Thin Mints: The most enduring and universally familiar Girl Scout cookie. These round, mint-flavored cookies covered with dark chocolate perennially sell the most boxes of any cookie. Thin Mints have never changed their name. Little Brownie Bakers and ABC Bakers both make Thin Mints.
Do-Si-Dos® or Peanut Butter Sandwich: A sandwich cookie. The round, bumpy perforated oatmeal cookie top and bottom surrounds a peanut butter-flavored layer inside. Do-Si-Dos® (formerly Gauchos) are baked by Little Brownie Bakers. ABC Bakers calls them Peanut Butter Sandwiches.
Trefoils or Shortbread: These shortbread cookies are shaped like the Girl Scout Trefoil design. Scot Teas were a similar, lighter sugar cookie made by the now defunct Burry. These cookies come in a blue box. Little Brownie Bakers calls them Trefoils; ABC Bakers call them Shortbread.
Tagalongs® or Peanut Butter Patties®: These are round cookies with a layer of peanut butter on top, and covered in chocolate. These cookies come in a red box. Little Brownie Bakers calls them Tagalongs®; ABC Bakers call them Peanut Butter Patties®.
Samoas® or Caramel deLites®: These are round doughnut-shaped cookies about two inches in diameter with a hole in the center, covered in caramel and toasted coconut, and then striped with chocolate. Samoas® are made by Little Brownie Bakers. The ABC version is called Caramel deLites®.
Thanks-A-Lot™: A shortbread cookie with a layer of fudge on the bottom and the words "Thank You" in English, French, Chinese, Swahili or Spanish embossed on the top. Thanks-A- Lots™ have been made by ABC Bakers since 2006 and were preceded by a similar cookie called the Animal Treasure.
Cinna-Spins™: New for 2007, Cinna-Spins™ make it easy to snack smart by doing the calorie counting for you! Each carton contains five ready-to-grab-and-go 100 calorie packs full of crispy cinnamon swirls; they are made by ABC Bakers.
Lemonades™: Introduced in 2006, these shortbread cookies are stamped in the shape of a sliced lemon with a tangy lemon icing. They are made by ABC Bakers and replace the Lemon Pastry Creme.
