These Trader Joe's Coffees Get Paired With Your Favorite Girl Scout Cookies
Jennifer Simpson

Girl Scout Cookies are everywhere, and there's no better way to treat yourself this cookie season than by settling down to relax with a box (or two) of your favorite cookie (or three) and your beverage of choice. But just what should that beverage be?

While you can enjoy Girl Scout Cookies with milk (or even wine), many people (myself included) prefer to enjoy their Thin Mints and Samoas with a cup of joe. Not surprisingly, some coffees pair better with certain cookies than others, and I've taken it upon myself to give you a full report on which coffees and cookies go together like... well, coffee and cookies!

For this endeavor, I've used four of my favorite Trader Joe's whole bean coffees, ground up nice and fresh by yours truly. So, what kind of coffee should you sip with your Girl Scout S'mores? Read on!

TJ's Bali Blue Moon Coffee

If you've never tried Trader Joe's Bali Blue Moon Coffee, you owe yourself the pleasure. It is unequivocally the smoothest sip of coffee I've ever tasted. With virtually no acidity, it really brings out the richness of the creamy, peanut butter-filled Tagalongs we're all so fond of.

TJ's Kenya AA Coffee

With a rich, intense flavor, Trader Joe's Kenya AA Coffee is a very robust bean. With a strong kick of caffeine and a pleasant acidity, it pairs well with the sweetest of cookies, such as Samoas and Do-si-dos.

TJ's Fair Trade Organic Guatemalan Coffee

These beans are dark - extra dark, in fact. This marvelous mug has a strong flavor without the bitter aftertaste one may usually associate with dark roast coffees. With such a full-bodied bean as Trader Joe's Fair Trade Organic Guatemalan Coffee, you need a cookie that can hold it's own, like Thin Mints and Savanah Smiles.

TJ's 100% Kona Coffee

My personal favorite brew is Trader Joe's 100% Kona Coffee. It's rich and smooth without being overpowering. Trefoils, Thanks-A-Lot, Toffee-tastic, and Girl Scout S'mores are my favorites for nibbling alongside or dunking directly into this brew.

Hopefully, this guide proved useful in finding a new flavor combination for you to enjoy. So, feel free to indulge in all of your favorite Girl Scout Cookies however you see fit. I'd even suggest picking up an extra box (or four) to hide in the back of the freezer so that you can enjoy them all year round!

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

Lorelai Gilmore and I are kindred spirits.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

When I was in high school, I was the occasional coffee drinker, if you could call it that. I would drink Starbucks frappuccinos and iced mocha drinks, which were more like snacks than coffee, BUT they had coffee in them, so I said I drank coffee. I progressed from my love of “snack drinks" to a more general appreciation of coffee, and would have a cup of coffee once a week or so. My “cup of coffee" would consist of a little coffee and a lot of cream and sugar, but it was coffee nonetheless. Then I started college.

Today's society places a ridiculous amount of importance on social media and what we see on our computer screens. Some of these short films you might have seen shared on Facebook. Some of them you may have never even heard of. Whatever the case may be, these productions have used thier position of power in our world today to spread a message. The messages vary from domestic violence, LGBTQ acceptance, self-love, the role of men in society to end the unfair treatment towards women and even the promotion of the furtherence of medical discovery in our country. Regardless of the message, each film advertises something that needs far more screen time than Victoria's Secret Fashion shows or Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Here are 14 of the best and most revolutionary short films to date:

girl with parents

Well, this school year has come to a close, and it's off to having fun in the sun. For college students, summer offers a few different options: get an internship somewhere AMAZING like NYC, India or somewhere else awesome, travel, stay in your college town or go home for the summer. Whatever the reasoning, many people do end up going home and living with their parents during the summer. Many things are different when you go home for the summer. After almost a whole year being an adult, it's time to return to your parent's home and follow rules that you threw to the wind the second you stepped on campus last fall. And you get to see all your old friends, the ones who came home anyway. You'll also see people you haven't talked to since you graduated that you were really okay with never seeing again. If you are going home for the summer, here are some things that will happen to you.
