Cookies: 401

Samoas or Caramel deLights? What's the difference? Which is the correct name? Now most of you might not care which one you devour, as long as it tastes good right?

Well, I never knew there was a difference, until a couple of years ago. When I moved in with my old roommate Jenni, back in the day, we soon discovered that we both shared a love for Girl Scout cookies. That year we ordered a bunch of them, Somoas and Thin Mints of course. When they arrived though, we were a little disappointed as they just didn't taste as good as we remembered.

Somehow or someway, we.. well maybe it was more like Jenni, came to find out that there are two different bakers for Girl Scout cookies. Thus, the reason for the two different names, Somoas and Caramel deLights. Little Brownie Bakers makes the Somoas and ABC/Interbake Foods makes the Caramel deLights.

In my opinion, the cookies from ABC taste much better than the Little Brownie Bakers, including the Thin Mints! Thanks to living in a highly populated area, we have the choice of buying for either of them and I only buy ABC cookies. Now if I couldn't find Caramel deLights and only had the choice of Somoas or nothing, I would still buy them.

So, there you go. You now know much more than you ever needed to know about Girl Scout Cookies! Oh, and you weren't going crazy because you could have sworn they were called Caramel deLight's.

I completely agree! Carmel deLights are much better! In fact, I am wishing I had some right now...
