Everything you knew about Girl Scout cookies may be wrong


Girl Scout cookies are a must-have every spring, and you've probably sampled many throughout your life. What if, though, the cookies your neighbor has eaten are nothing like the ones you have been?

There are two manufacturers of Girl Scout cookies: ABC Bakers and Little Brownie Bakers. The LA Times put together a map of which baker supplies what areas of the country:

The bakeries aren't only different in name -- the entire cookies are different, and sometimes the names as well. Both bakeries call them Thin Mints, but an example: Little Brownie named peanut butter cookies Do-si-dos while ABC named them Peanut Butter Sandwiches.

As a result, the cookies have different nutritional info:


As part of the cookies' 100 year anniversary, the Girl Scouts released a new addition: S'mores. If you look at both ABC and Little Brownie's cookies, though, they're completely different. ABC Baker's is a chocolate coated cookie, while Little Brownie's is a sandwich cookie. The explanation for the disparity, you ask? There's no wrong way to eat a s'more.

What baker supplies your local Girl Scout troop? Samoas or Caramel deLites?
