    I Ranked All 15 Girl Scout Cookies From Worst To Best, And Here's What I Came Up With

    And no, Thin Mints won't be #1 on this list.

    DISCLAIMER: Not all of these are available year-round! And also, if you don't agree with my opinions, you'll live.

    15. Cranberry Citrus Crisps

    These are way too healthy to be enjoyed as a cookie. Very grainy, gets stuck on the roof of your mouth every 4 seconds, and it's just your average Thanksgiving cookie. The design is cute, but it's not worth your money or time. These are gluten-free but stick to something better.

    14. Shortbread/Trefoils

    They're not bad, just very simple. Just your classic Grandma's pantry cookie. Like, come on... at least add some sprinkles.

    13. Trios

    Girl Scouts of the United States of America / Via girlscouts.org

    This is basically an oatmeal cookie with raisins and peanut butter. It's not the worst one on here, and oatmeal cookies are underrated, but this doesn't deserve much love. Sorry, Girl Scouts.

    12. Toffee-tastic

    Girl Scouts of the United States of America / Via girlscouts.org

    This cookie is way too sweet and salty at the same time. It's one of the bigger disappointments in the brown-sugar category. I would rather eat a stick of butter than have one of these garbage cookies.

    11. Savannah Smiles

    Girl Scouts of the United States of America / Via girlscouts.org

    Now, don't get me wrong, lemon cookies are very underrated. But these are so messy, and you can't really taste the lemon flavor. Do better, Girl Scouts.

    10. Rah-Rah Raisins

    Girl Scouts of the United States of America / Via girlscouts.org

    If you happen to be a middle-aged adult, you might enjoy these. But personally, I feel like there needs to be a buttload of chocolate chips in here. It's just full of raisins, white chocolate, and disappointment.

    9. Do-si-dos/Peanut Butter Sandwich

    Girl Scouts of the United States of America / Via girlscouts.org

    It's a good cookie. Not really much flavor to it, but props to you, Girl Scouts. This is basically just the peanut butter crackers you would trade in first grade.

    8. Thanks-A-Lot

    Girl Scouts of the United States of America / Via girlscouts.org

    These are pretty good – very light, really cute design, too! But I couldn't eat the whole box during my daily sitcom binge. If someone gave these to me for my birthday, I would be partially disappointed.

    7. Caramel Chocolate Chip

    Girl Scouts of the United States of America / Via girlscouts.org

    Really nice, really delicious, and really soft! Nice caramel flavor, but they're not that special. It's just like eating Chips Ahoy, and you could get these anywhere else.

    6. Both Kinds of S'mores Cookies

    Girl Scouts of the United States of America / Via girlscouts.org

    These are both really good! I'm really impressed with how these turned out. In all honesty, we really don't need two kinds of S'mores Girl Scout cookies, but oh well. However, the one dipped in chocolate is pretty much just a sugar overload. It's so sweet, you can't eat a whole box of them. The other ones are fantastic, though! Not too sweet, you still get the perfect s'mores flavor (minus the toastiness)! Overall, I say this is a win!

    5. Lemon-Ups

    Girl Scouts of the United States of America / Via girlscouts.org

    This has a really nice flavor and inspirational message! If you're having a bad day, I can gladly say these are worthy of the whole box to be eaten. They also replaced the Savannah Smiles in 2020. (Good for you, Girl Scouts!)

    4. Thin Mints

    Girl Scouts of the United States of America / Via girlscouts.org

    I hate to be the one to tell you this, but Thin Mints are way too overrated. Don't get me wrong; these are amazing. Great texture, you can easily have these for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. But this doesn't deserve all the hype. Hot tip: stick these in the freezer, you won't regret it.

    3. Peanut Butter Patties®/Tagalongs®

    Girl Scouts of the United States of America / Via girlscouts.org

    These are basically fancy Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Great flavor, not as messy as some of the other ones, and honestly, these are underrated. Again, you could easily eat a whole box of these.

    2. Caramel deLites/Samoas

    Girl Scouts of the United States of America / Via girlscouts.org

    These are a classic! You can never go wrong with a mix of coconut, caramel, and chocolate. You would gladly eat an entire box (or two) of these! Almost nothing can top the Samoa!

    Which brings me to number one..

    1. Lemonades

    Girl Scouts of the United States of America / Via girlscouts.org

    These are by far the best cookie that Girl Scouts have EVER made. I can't tell you how many times I've eaten a whole box of these in one sitting. The lemon flavor is spot-on, the shortbread has just the right amount of sweetness, and the cute lemon design just makes you all warm and fuzzy inside. I love you, Girl Scouts. This cookie is so underrated. People usually are so stereotypical about lemon desserts, saying they're only for the elderly. But the Lemonades reign superior in my book.
