Thin Mints, Tagalongs, and Samoas are what get me through the long winter. I know that if I just hold on, I can make it to February when Girl Scout Cookies finally complete my life each year. However, if you leave Colorado and drop those names in some our neighboring states, they won’t have any idea what you are talking about, and when you tell them Girl Scout Cookies and they get you some, they probably won’t taste the same either.
The Los Angeles Times has blown open this scandal of epic proportions. It’s been revealed that there are TWO SEPARATE BAKERIES that make Girl Scout Cookies, and they churn out very distinct products and even call them different things!
The LA Times put together this interactive feature on the two bakeries that make all of the nation’s Girl Scout Cookies (ABC Bakers and Little Brownie Bakers) where you can put in your zip code and find out which bakery your cookies come from. It also shows the differences between the cookies made at each one.
All of Colorado is the same as far where we get our cookies, but here a map of how the nation’s Girl Scout Cookies supply breaks down:
So basically now I feel like I need to take a trip to Kansas, Nebraska or Oklahoma to taste these other cookies and see what I’ve been missing out on all these years!
