Thin Mint Oreo Bailey’s Irish Cream Milkshake… and an epic face-off between Team Thin Mints and Team Samoas!
When it comes to Girl Scout Cookies, are you Team Thin Mints, or Team Samoas?
Everybody’s one or the other. My mom? Team Thin Mints. My sister… solidly in Team Samoas.
But what about Tagalongs, I ask you? Or Do-Si-Dos? Or the classic but unfairly maligned Trefoils?
Those cookies are great and all… but I guarantee you, it’s the Thin Mints and Samoas people go for first.
(Trust me – I used to be a Girl Scout!)
And it looks like the Thin Mints are keeping their lead, with Jamie’s Thin Mint-inspired naughty Girl Scout cocktail and Justine’s Thin Mint pots de creme – although Claire’s Samoa cookie doughnuts do look delicious!
Did your team win? Tell me who you were rooting for!
(As for me? I’m Team Tagalongs. I’m a rebel like that. 😉)
Obviously, I had to try out the winning milkshake – because when you mix Thin Mints, Oreos, ice cream, and booze, everybody wins!
And my goodness, was it delicious! It tastes like drinking minty oreos… not a bad way to enjoy your Girl Scout Cookies!
