Maybe we in Seattle get the cookies from the crappy bakery, because GS cookies are just not good..IMO..I know..stepping on thin ice here I just find them to be more about the tradition than about good cookies.

Hey..Ash..and anyone who likes a good mint cookie...York peppermint cookies...really, really good! I have only bought them in the regular size box, not the small packs, so I don't know if they taste different, depending on the size of the cookie..etc...but..sooo much better than the GS mint.

Thin mints for the win!

Actually, I'm pretty sick of GS cookies at the moment. One of our supporters gave my office 5 cases of somoas and the peanut butter ones. There was a box of thinmints that I didn't know about before I got totally grossed out on the other ones. I think I'm good on the cookie front for the rest of, oh, 2008.

But I cannot resisit them regardless. Or Thin Mints. Or Samoas. Or Tag-Alongs (peanut butter patties). The lemon ones I could take or leave. I like the subtle cinnamon of the cookie, but the filling was too tart.

Sounds tasty! Such a shame I didn't know about them earlier...I was in Target on Friday and could have bought a box...will do the next time I'm there.

But for now, my Thin Mints hit the spot....

I am probably dating myself now, but way back in the olden days, when the dinosaurs still roamed the earth and submarines had screen doors, and I was a Girl Scout (1970's), we had different cookies. The ones that I remember were some sort of cookie base with a thick slab of fudge on the top, and I mean a THICK slab, at least a quarter inch thick. We would freeze those suckers and just gnaw the fudge off. Does anyone else remember those things? The other cookies we sold were nothing like the ones they have now, other than the thin mints. There were sandwich cookies, peanut butter cookies and some sort of butter cookies, but no Samoas or such. Oh yeah, I grew up in Chicago, maybe it's a regional thing?

I've heard theories that some areas get better quality, but I don't know if that's true. For the most part they aren't actually really good cookies. I think its just a novelty thing. You can only get them once a year so you have to have some.

For me even when they're good, they're still a crappy cookie. But that doesn't mean I'll refuse any, lol.

BTW guys, if you leave your cookies in a hot place, they melt and stick together. I left mine in my trunk a month or so ago for a week, and it got up into the 80's (I live in Houston)

Well I'll be damned, I never heard of these do si does & somoas and never knew there were 2 different companies. Here in Missouri they've always been Carmel De Lites & PB Sandwiches........I have noticed that the PB Patties used to be my favorite but the last few years they've tasted absolutely horrible, not how I remember them at all growing up so I stopped ordering them.............so do they make the PB Patties from the company that makes the somoas & do si does? I want to try them to see if they are what I remember growing up.

Ohhhh yes, they are the original cookies - called Tagalongs!!! You MUST find them, try ebay, I'm sure you can find a few boxes in an auction. Get them, you won't be sorry.

But you have to MAKE SURE they're Tagalongs. Write to the seller and ask what name it says it on the box before you bid on them. Many auctions list them under both names and use stock photos of the cookies, so unless you ask for sure or they have their own picture in the auction - you can't know.

Good luck!!

Here's an auction for 3 boxes at regular $4 per box price:

Also, here is the link to LBB for the cookies they sell and the names they are sold under:

My favorites are the dosidoes (the ones with peanut butter in between two cookies). They're absolutely heavenly! I usually order about two boxes and eat them in about four days.

I ebayed some Samoas this year. Usually we have someone at work who sends around an order form for their kids. This year that did not happen so I was forced to use plan B.

I like thinmint and tagalongs too. I have not tried any of the other varities.

A co-worker has promised to have an order form in office on Tuesday. We are all waiting patiently to place orders for our yearly fix.
