Crazy Cookie Crumble
Reporters Lacie and Ally Review Girl Scout Cookies
February 13, 2020
An outstanding cookie. The most light and airy of them all, it has a nice layer of chocolate that’s not too dense and heavy and the minty taste creates a lighter facade than what you would think. The cookie itself is soft and not too crunchy, and the chocolate dip is smooth and overall easy to eat in one sitting. Definitely one of my favorites, I rate it 9/10.
There is absolutely nothing in this cookie that makes me hate it. The toasted coconut on top mixed with the chocolate and caramel creates such a nice texture that is not too crunchy or chewy. The cookie itself is a ring of shortbread and the caramel cover helps it stay together so there is no worry of crumbling while holding it. As well as the taste being amazing, the cookie is really satisfying to look at, but trust me it’s so hard to resist. I rate this cookie 10/10.
This cookie was really disappointing in my opinion. I was so excited to try a replication of a s’more but it was really underwhelming. Don’t get me wrong I enjoyed eating this chocolatey cookie but it seemed as though it was just a graham cracker dipped in chocolate with the smallest bit of marshmallow underneath. To me it just was not as good as it could have been. I have nothing but sad words for this cookie. I rate it a 4/10.
I really enjoyed eating this cookie. Normally the dry and brittleness would be a huge no from me, but this cookie was really nice and pleasuring to eat. It didn’t include anything such as peanut butter or chocolate to overwhelm you. It was just plain and simple. Think of it as a sort of tummy pleaser from all of the other sugary goodness. Overall I rate this classic a 4/10.
This cookie was a bit interesting in my opinion. The lemon flavored icing on the back of the shortbread would be really delicious but it was overbearingly sweet and not as lemony as I would have liked it to be. The actual cookie was really hard and I was just not a fan. In addition though, the design on the front of the cookie was really cute and creative and the most decorated out of all the cookies. So prompts to you, Lemonades! I rate it a 3/10.
This cookie was really similar to both the lemonade and the trefoil, except for the chocolate plastered on the back, but taste wise it wasn’t much different. The chocolate was light and difficult to perceive, so I’m not sure what the concept was supposed to be. The front is really cool though because it depicts the words “Thank you!” in different languages, but besides that, this cookie is not very exciting. I rate it a 2/10.
Peanut Butter Sandwiches:
Somehow this cookie was a sandwich of sadness. I love peanut butter but this cookie was so dry and dense it was hard to enjoy without chasing it with two cups of water between every bite. The cookie itself is a mix between soft and a somewhat stale crunch, and it’s a but salty. The peanut butter sandwiched in between is thick and sickly sweet. I was sadly disappointed but they might be better dipped in milk. I rate it a 5/10.
Peanut Butter Patties:
Nothing could go wrong with this particular cookie. It is very similar to a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup in that it is a cookie with a dollop of peanut butter in the middle covered with chocolate, which is all of my favorite things combined in one. There is just enough peanut butter in the cookie to taste and it’s not too overwhelming. I personally love them dipped in milk so it becomes softer and not so crunchy. Overall I give this cookie an 8/10.
Caramel Chocolate Chip:
This cookie is the most revolting and awful cookie I have ever had the displeasure of feeding my taste buds. It looked like a rock with old chocolate chips in it and something I supposed was the caramel that looked like mold. The taste was sour and brittle, and once you put it in your mouth it clotted up and felt like you were eating sand. Needless to say this cookie never made it to my stomach and instead found a home in the trash can. I rate it a 0/10.
A definite classic. Not too dense but not too light, just the perfect amount of cookie, hence the thin I assume. Very nice smooth chocolate with light crunch and enough mint to satisfy but not overwhelm the eater. Also incredibly easy to eat an entire box without realizing, be careful. Overall, one of my favorite cookies, and I rate it 10/10.
You literally cannot go wrong with this cookie. The mix of chocolate, coconut, and caramel is so perfect together to where words cannot explain how good this cookie is. The texture is crunchy enough to where you can feel the cookie crumble in your mouth but also feel the caramel stretch. Very sugary and not for the faint of heart. Overall, one of my favorite cookies, and I rate it 10/10.
This cookie tastes like the crunchier version of a s’more. I don’t know how the Girl Scouts did it, but they managed to capture the chocolate, graham cracker, and marshmallow into a cookie. Although the marshmallow is a little underwhelming, you can taste all the flavors. Texture is nice and crumbly but firm, as it should be. If you close your eyes and stand in front of a heater while eating this cookie you’re basically making s’mores… right? Overall, also one of my favorite cookies, and I rate it 9/10.
If you have no sense of taste and enjoy eating dry things, this cookie is for you! With its crusty texture and flavorless personality, this cookie ain’t it. Although, I feel that if I had something to dip it in or pair it with it wouldn’t be as bad, maybe butter? Plus the design is appealing to look at. Overall, this cookie is plain, and I rate it 2/10.
This cookie is like a mix of shortbread cookie and hardened lemonade frosting. It’s incredibly sweet and filled with flavor (well really only one flavor, lemon). If you like basic cookies with a little jazz, this is the cookie for you! You might also like the Thanks-A-Lot cookies (mentioned below). Also, quick tip, these cookies hit different when you put them in the freezer. Overall, this cookie is decent, and I rate it 6/10.
This cookie is like the lemonade cookie, but instead has chocolate covering on one of the shortbread sides. Plus, on each cookie there’s ‘Thank you’ in five different languages, including English, Spanish, Swahili, Chinese, and French. That makes it a tad more interesting. Overall, the cookie is decent and tends to satisfy my sugary needs without making me sick. I rate this cookie 6/10 as well.
Peanut Butter Sandwiches:
If you like dry cookies and peanut butter with too much sugar, this is your cookie! The design is nice and clean cut, but it’s just disappointing when you take that first bite. To be fair though, I don’t enjoy peanut butter in my cookies. It has to be really good, and these cookies just don’t cut it. Although, if the cookie itself was less dry and the peanut butter less sweet, I think I would enjoy it. Overall, this cookie isn’t a favorite (mainly because of preference), and I rate it 4/10.
Peanut Butter Patties:
This is a classic, but I still don’t like them. Maybe it’s the peanut butter, or maybe it’s the fact that they’re denser than a cinder block that I don’t enjoy them. The overwhelming coating of chocolate covers a stale-like cookie with peanut butter. I would recommend them to people who like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups though (those are the only peanut butter candy I like, I don’t know what happened to be honest). Overall, this cookie is just not for me, but I rate it 5/10.
Caramel Chocolate Chip:
If the Sahara was a cookie, it would be this gluten-free bite of sand. Somehow, this cookie managed to include hard caramel, fake chocolate chips and dusty cookie flavor into one, fun-sized bite. I am extremely disappointed, especially because these are slightly more expensive than the other boxes, but I guess that’s what happens when you make a gluten-free cookie. If you are in fact gluten-free just disregard everything I’m saying! Oh, and the bag is nice though, I enjoy being able to reseal this failure. Overall, I give these cookies a 2/10.
