Girl Scout cookies differ by region

Posted to Maps  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

The Girl Scouts, known for their annual cookie sales, uses two bakers. These two bakers make similar but different cookies, so Thin Mints in one area of the United States might not be the same as another. Gasp.

The Los Angeles Times reports:

Where you buy determines which ones you get. Orange County gets the crunchier Thin Mints, while Los Angeles gets the smoother ones; Dallas gets Samoas, but Fort Worth gets Caramel deLites. Most of Florida eats Tagalongs, but Orlando gets Peanut Butter Patties.

Which cookies are you eating? Your local Girl Scouts decide.

Looks like I’ve got four boxes from Little Brownie Bakers in the cupboard, and now I’m tempted to drive 30 minutes east just to smuggle in some ABC Bakers.
