Love. Girl Scout cookies taste so good because of the amount of Love and good feelings surrounding them. The girls that love being scouts, the people that feel good helping out a good cause.

At least that’s my guess ;).

I think it’s because you can only have them once a year. Anticipation is the secret ingredient.

good point, same when you are really hungry and havent ate for hours, anything tastes good.

Dammit, @cwilbur stole my answer. Lurve for the Adams Family.

Like Augustlan, I believe it is because you cannot get them year round. Believe me, though…once you go to a bunch of GS events and that’s what they offer – that appeal factor plummets.

@adreamofautumnwoohoo! I’ve been dealing with cookie money all day long. I’m ready for cookie season to end!

To expand on cwilbur’s remark, I’ve heard that it’s the Brownies that make for the tastiest cookies.

the truth is you can get them all year round – most are made by Keebler, so just look for them in the cookie aisle – they won’t have the GS names, but they are available

the other baker is ABC – Interbake Foods of Richmond, VA

Samoas are yes,yes’s – shortbread, thin mints, tag-alongs.. Keebler. Also look for ‘gotta’ haves’.... you just have to open your eyes, they are all in the cookie aisle.

Little Brownie Bakers is also a baker for Girl Scouts.

Mmmmmm… Samoas…

@bristolbaby – from what I understand, they are very similar, but not the same. Yes, they are the option for off-season GS cookies.

That’s so weird! I just had my first one in years a few minutes ago!

As I sit eating a sleeve of PB Sands – I believe it’s the once a year thing. The bank manager at the branch near my office sells them from his office. He has a stock of them. He said he bought 200 boxes of each type, and is currently out of shortbread and samoa’s. I have another box hidden in the back of my car. The boys won’t play fair, SO mom keeps her secret stash.

i’ve heard they are giving Samoa’s different names, Caramel Delights, but they’re completely different cookies…but almost look identical. My friend was obsessed with figuring out what was going on and got a hold of both types and took pictures of them side by side. Pretty convincing evidence.

Definitely have crack in those Tagalongs!

asmonet's avatar

Caramel Delights are fucking amazing.

oooh I love em! Chocolate peanut butter cookies in the red box are my favorite! I better not say how many boxes I’ve had this year.

ShauneP82's avatar

Because they are made from real girl scouts.

If you could buy them year round they would lose their appeal.

Also the peanut butter ones are the best
