That explains it! Somebody else told me this too, that different bakeries are being used and that some scout groups use one and some another. So this might explain why some of you say they haven't changed but from what I've seen they have, and drastically. I would like to know what is going on with the new thin mints, if they changed too, before I buy any. The bakeries are in competition with one another from what I've been told so if everyone complains about the bad one maybe they won't use them next year.

With great relief, the box of Tagalongs that I just bought taste the same.

Now I will proceed to eat so many Tagalongs that I will shortly get sick of the . . . until next year.

I finally caved into my curiosity and bought Dreyer's Samoas ice cream last night. It's extremely disappointing. It has chunks of the cookies in it, but honestly, the overall taste is very bland. It almost doesn't taste like anything.

Was just wondering how much money people paid for a box ??

I paid $4.00 ... the lady told me it was because she sold them in Cook County (although, Du Page County sold them for $3.50)


I thought maybe she wasn't from Cook and might have been selling them at the higher price so she could pocket the EXTRA fee.

They should be one price (no matter what area they are sold at)


And thank goodness ... those Carmel DeLites do taste just like those Samoas !!

The day they change them is the day I stop buying their cookies. END OF STORY !! Let's hope that NEVER happens.

Around here, they've been $4.00 for the last few years, at least back when Maddy was a Girl Scout

I haven't had any Girl Scouts hawking their cookies near me, at least not yet. I might have to go try some of the GS Edy's ice cream soon if I can't get my yearly fix soon.

I bought three boxes this weekend ($3.50 btw). They're everywhere now, damn it.

A mom sold me mine. Her face had nothing to do with my purchase.

I usually buy a box or two from a coworker whose kid is a Girl Scout.
