girl scout cookies

Taking a cue from the Girl Scout commitment to courage, confidence and character, we dream up some new and insane ways to serve Girl Scout Cookies.

Since we were working on a Girl Scout Cookie video at the time, we brought a fistful of cookies to our New York meetup . Everyone there tried some and several of the American women attending shared their insight as past Scouts. But it was Camie, a Canadian, who exploded all of our worlds. We get a fair amount

The Sporkful

Dan explains why he thinks Thin Mints are overrated and takes issue with Girl Scout Cookie nomenclature, while Mark holds forth on the best serving temperature for Thin Mints, and both hosts debate the strengths and weaknesses of Peanut Butter Patties (a.k.a. Tagalongs) and Peanut Butter Sandwiches (a.k.a. Do-si-dos or Savannahs).  

We offer some rather amazing ways to consume Girl Scout Cookies, by combining them with things like ham, potato chips, and much more. All the while we take inspiration from the Girl Scout credo: Courage, Confidence and Character.

The Sporkful

We had a delightful conversation with Cassie, the Daisy Scout who (along with her mom fellow NPR Bryant Park Project alum Tricia McKinney) sold us a massive batch of Girl Scout Cookies for audio/video experimentation and debate. Our whole conversation didn't all fit in the episode, but we think this outtake about a lesser known Girl Scout Cookie is worth
