Girl Scout Cookies — kind of — now in stores

Just when I started thinking I should have bought more Samoas and Peanut Butter Patties when the Girl Scouts were selling cookies all over town in March, I began seeing ads for Girl Scout candy bars marketed as tasting like popular Girl Scout cookies.

Blasphemy, I thought.

I was wrong.

I inadvertently picked up a couple at Walgreen’s (the stores sometimes offer things at the counter to raise funds for charities), thinking they were Nestle candy bars (The label prominently displays “Crunch.”) When I recognized my error, I decided to try one. I expected they would taste good, though not like the cookies.

OMG! The Girl Scouts and Nestle totally nailed the two “limited-edition” cookie flavors I tried: Peanut Butter Creme (peanut butter patty) and Caramel and Coconut (Samoa). As is often the case when in pursuit of Girl Scout delicacies, the Thin Mints candy bar was nowhere to be found. So far I haven't found a list of retailers selling the candy.

Consumers have through September (unless supplies run out) to get addicted to the latest Girl Scout offerings, then, just like the cookies, they will be unavailable.
