I hosted a cookie tasting and here are the 2024 Girl Scout Cookies ranked in order from worst to best:

Coming in at number nine are the Toffee-tastics, the gluten-free offering. Described as a “buttery toffee cookie,” it looks like a Pecan Sandy, but does not live up to the taste. The Toffee-tastics  texture and flavor are both off. Dipping them in milk did not help. Do not recommend. D

Ranked at number eight are the Girl Scout S’mores, graham cracker sandwich cookies stuffed with chocolate and marshmallow fluff. The texture and crunch is fine, but I did not like the taste of this cookie. Do not recommend. C-

Ranked at number seven are the Lemon-ups, lemon cookies with inspirational messages printed on them. These cookies are pretty okay tasting, and they are absolutely adorable. I love the messages on the cookies, like “I am creative,” “I’m bold,” “I’m a leader,” I’m an innovator,” and “I am gutsy.” The lemon flavor is not the best, but it’s not that bad. I don’t not recommend this cookie. B-

Ranked at number six are the Do-Si-Dos, classic peanut butter sandwich cookies. These cookies are also pretty okay. Think Nutter Butter in both taste and texture. I don’t not recommend this cookie. B

Coming in at number five are the Thin Mints, a crispy chocolate-mint wafer coated in chocolate. This is a controversial ranking for this cookie, especially in my household. Thin Mints are a very popular flavor and they are my husband’s favorite. While Thin Mints are not my favorite, I do appreciate them. This is a solid, delightful cookie. This classic cookie is a must order. A-

Ranked at number four are the Trefoils, shortbread cookies. Trefoils have been my go-to choice for years. This classic is a good cookie. It tastes like shortbread. It’s good with and without milk. This classic cookie is a must order. A-

In third place are the Adventurefuls, a chocolate, brownie-ish cookie with a dollop of caramel creme in the center. These cookies are surprisingly tasty. They feature the same crunch chocolate wafer found in the Thin Mint with a caramel twist. The caramel flavor is a little lacking, but overall, I like them. I recommend you give them a try. A

In second place are the Samoas, crispy coconut and caramel-coated ring-shaped cookies with chocolate stripes. This classic cookie (also know as a Caramel Delight) is just yummy. Toasted coconut and chocolate are a perfect combo.  If you like coconut, these are a must order. A

The winner, in first place, Tagalongs, also known as Peanut Butter Patties, crunchy cookies topped with a layer of peanut butter and dipped in chocolate. Classic taste and a perfect balance of crunch, peanut butter, and chocolate. Goes great with milk. This classic cookie is a must order. A+
