So, who likes Girl Scout cookies? I know I do, and for me, there's nothing better in the world of cookies than a Caramel deLite. It's the definition of heaven.

What's your favorite?

kg - Have you ever had Samoas? They look exactly like Caramel deLites, except they have real caramel and chocolate rather than the "light" ingredients in Caramel deLites. I believe that Caramel deLites are the "light" (i.e. lower calorie) version of Samoas.

If you put the two cookies side by side, you would not be able to tell them apart. If you tasted them, however, you'd be able to tell right away. I find that when ordering cookies now, I actually have to read the descriptions, since some girl scouts sell Samoas while others sell Caramel deLites.

Of course cold Thin Mints (we keep ours in the refrigerator) with a cold cup of milk are also pretty hard to beat.....

I can't even imagine how bad for you the Samoas are, as the deLites are already 70 calories a piece!

I just pulled a box out of the pantry to check. Here's what's listed on the side of the box:
