Hard on the heels of the recent Pop-Tart fracas, the question of the One True Girl Scout Cookie has arisen, whilst on a recent hiking trip. Disagreements were expounded. Hard words were said. Faces were turned away.

Once again, the mighty power of the Internets must be invoked to deal with a critical question of our times. What is the One True Girl Scout Cookie?

The poll is here.

Once the poll has run for a few days, I'll make a post tallying up the results, and also revealing which Girl Scout cookie I personally favor.

Mmm, Girl Scout cookies.

But are they made from real Girl Scouts?

Wait. It's not 100% universal that the answer is Thin Mints? What kind of world do we live in?

While I might like the peanut butter patties best, I have no doubt that thin mints are the platonic ideal of girl scout cookies.

There's the canonical answer: Thin Mints (duh). My personal favorite: peanut butter`sandwich.

We get a Girl Scout cookie ice cream -- the Samosa caramel is disgustingly perfect.

Unlike Pop Tarts, Girl Scout cookies are real food. (grin)

The link sends me to the results of the poll but I wanna take place in the voting and stick in my oar (cheap two-cent one) for Thin Mints.

My personal fave is the tagalong, even if the one true cookie can never be anything but a thin mint. :)

As someone who sold Girl Scout cookies way back when, I *know* which is the most iconic of them all.

Thin Mints! Thin Mints! Thin Mints!

Seriously, Jay? There's even a question?

The Thin Mint IS the cookie-equivalent of the One Ring. :LOL:

There really is no question. On the poll, it should have read, "Thin Mints. Duh."

No wonder Samoas are losing. They're not spelled right!

Thin mints are good. Samoas are brilliant.
