Girl Scout Cookies

Does anyone know where girl scout cookies can be found now? I read posts that date back to last week, but nothing for this week. Anyone have info on that?

  1. All their booths closed March 20th. Think you might be too late for this year.

    1. You might contact some local Girl Scout troops in your area. Some buy extra cookies and still have them for sale.

        Monku has an excellent idea. You might get lucky. All of the troops in my area have sold all of their reserves. Won't be available, again, until next year.

          I went grocery shopping yesterday in Santa Monica, and saw a girl with her Girls Scout uniform. I asked her mother, if they had any cookies for sale. She said, yes and I was lucky because her troop was going to send their surplus supply of cookies back. I bought a few boxes.

          And nothing, I mean nothing comes close to the Girl Scouts thin mints. The Keelber grasshoppers are good, but don't come close.

      2. If you have a craving for Thin Mints, try Keebler's Fudge Shoppe Grasshopper cookies. They taste exactly like Girl Scout Thin Mints.

          Also try Barbara Dee's Winter mints (found at Walgreens, Dollar Tree, Big Lots and the 99 Cent store).

          When frozen - or really cold - they taste just like the thin mints.

          And they use peppermint oil, not peppermint extract, no corn syrup, their ingredients are surprisingly good.

        2. if Samoas are your bag, Pavilion's/Von's makes a house brand variety called Fudge Coconut Cookies IIRC, in a purple box, that are exactly like 'em.

          1. Everyone... Thanks so much for your ideas!! Until I can get response from the local Troop... I never knew that Keebler made my two favorite flavors -- The Somoas and the Thin mints. Craving averted! Thanks again everybody!
