a few weeks ago, during Girl Scout Cookie season, New Yorkers are lucky enough to have a cookie cupboard for cookie-buying should they not know any actual Girl Scouts. I fall in that category, but wasn't able to stop by the cupboard and pick up cookies until last week. Then the heartbreak began...
The caramel swirl was too cloying, and the cookie was way too crunchy for me. Incredibly underwhelming as a cookie, especially when the other caramelly treat is the Samoa. These don't hold a candle to the Samoas.
The Tagalong and Samoa have battled for #1 Girl Scout cookie in my book for about 20 years now; #3 is firmly Thin Mints. For me, the best part of the Tagalong was the ample peanut butter filling which I would scrap off with my teeth and eat separately. Upon opening the package this year, I immediately noticed the lack of peanut butter! There should be half cookie, half peanut butter, but not anymore. Tagalong, you've moved to the #3 spot.
I recommend bringing your own (reusable) bag as they only have thin white plastic ones.
