What Your Favorite Girl Scout Cookie Says About You

Are you a Thin Mint, or a total Samoa?

What Your Favorite Girl Scout Cookie Says About You

As a former Gold Award Girl Scout, I know a thing or two about the cookies, and even though the flavors may have changed a few times throughout my thirteen years as a scout, each and every one holds a special place in my heart.

1. Thin Mints

Thin Mints have been a fan-favorite since they were first created, and a go-to for anyone attending a booth sale. With that being said, you are probably pretty "basic." You probably wouldn't mind having your Thin Mints in Frappuccino form while scrolling through your Instagram.

2. Samoas

Samoas are probably Thin Mints' biggest competition, especially in recent years when the two have gone back and forth for the title of favorite. On that note, I think that Samoa-lovers are a bit hipster, they like what is trendy, even though it is not "THE cookie." People who love Samoas probably also like to wear beanies and clothes from thrift stores, as well as lots of flannel.

3. Trefoils

Trefoils are the original Girl Scout cookie and have many longstanding fans. The only people who have ordered Trefoils from me were over the age of 60, making this forever in my mind a mom friend type of cookie. I don't know if the shortbread makes this a more appealing choice to older people, but I could definitely see someone pairing this cookie with some red wine while they watch "The Bachelor."

4. Savannah Smiles

I may be biased because these are my personal favorite, but I think that these cookies are the most fun. Most of the people that have bought these from me have been super fun people who are just trying to have a good time and try this still relatively new cookie.

5. Thank-You-Berry-Munch

RIP Thank-You-Berry-Munch. These cookies were brought out a few years ago for one cookie season only, and everyone I know absolutely loved them. This cookie is that friend that everyone just loves, and no one can really explain why.

6. S'mores

I do not know why these cookies are an extra dollar, but that has not stopped people from asking me every time I have sold cookies. People who like these cookies are definitely willing to "treat yo' self" and they know that there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

7. Tagalongs

These cookies are the girl-next-door of Girl Scout cookies. The people who like these tend to be "no fuss, no muss" types who are just trying to have a yummy snack. They're a go-to, as long as you aren't allergic to peanuts, because of their simplicity, yet they are never undervalued.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
