There are two things every red-blooded American has in common: a need for oxygen and a love of Girl Scout Cookies.
But, as all of us are painfully aware, not all Girl Scout Cookies are created equal. For every box of Peanut Butter Patties/Tagalongs there’s a Shortbread cookie waiting to underwhelm your palate.
Even Girl Scouts, the sacred purveyors of these tasty treats, know they don’t all stack up to each other equally. (Don’t believe us? Let us refer you again to a brutally honest review of Girl Scout Cookies by none other than one of the troop’s own sashed sellers.)
For the sake of science, or possibly just to settle a bar bet, Influenster conducted a survey of more than 5,000 people across all 50 states to determine the most popular Girl Scout Cookie in each region, as People reports.
It should come as no surprise that Thin Mints D-E-S-T-R-O-Y-E-D the other cookies. (At least it should come as no surprise if you’ve ever stuck a box of Thin Mints in the feezer, #blessed.) The mint and chocolate cookie was the preferred treat of 24 states from California to Arkansas to New Hampshire and beyond.
Caramel deLites, or Samoas depending where you’re from (because FYI the name of Girl Scout cookies varies by region), won the silver medal by being the most popular cookie among 18 states including Texas, Massachusetts and New York.
Peanut Butter Patties/Tagalongs came in an honorable 3rd (solid choice, Montana) while Do-si-dos/Peanut Butter Sandwiches captured the hearts of the people of both Vermont and Colorado.
While these are about the kind of the results we expected to see, we’d also like to turn your attention to the noticeable lack of votes for Toffee-tastic, which Charlotte, the aforementioned brutally honest Girl Scout, described as being “as flavorless as dirt.”
America seems to agree.
