    Yep, for those of us in the States it is that time of the year again.... this years Girl Scout Cookies have arrived! :D

    I'm a sucker for the Thin Mints. It is just a shame that "Thin Mints" have the exact opposite effect on the person eating them. <sigh>

    I've asked the person selling them here at the office that if I come back next week saying I need to buy more Thin Mints then she is to tell me no. :ROFLMAO:

    Thin Mints are the best...have you ever had grasshopper pie? It's like a cross between thin mints and a cheese cake.

    I don't recall it by that name but now I'm intrigued. I think I'll do some searching to see what Google comes up with.

    Somewhere in the back of my mind I think Grasshopper Pie is an ice box pie?

    Yeah, and I think my mom found the recipe somewhere online too. I'll ask her and get back to you. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!

    OMG i need to find a girl scout. Thin mints used to be my favorite but now I'm all about the tagalongs. SO good. I used to be the girl scout selling the cookies ;)

    Which ones are the tagalongs? I found out this year that the cookies are different in the various regions. Besides the Thin Mints (delicious stored in the 'fridge!) my favorites this year are the "Thank-a-lots" which are the shortbreads with a fudge coating on one side and also the lemon cookies which are shortbreads with a lemon icing coating on one side.

    And the woman at my office broke her word... she sold me more Thin Mints! :banghead: :D

    i know, way to wait 9 months to respond. I never did end up getting any cookies :(

    Tagalongs are the "twix-like" ones, as in there's a nice glob of peanut butter on a cracker which is covered in chocolate

    OOOhh.... I don't think I've seen them in this area this year then.

    Sorry to hear you didn't get any cookies this year but look on the bright side... it is only a few more months until it is cookie time again! :D
