Girl Scout Cookie Quiz

A while back we learned that the Girl Scouts were downsizing their boxes and in some cases decreasing the girth of a few cookies due to the rising cost of flour.

Even though some boxes contain fewer cookies, and some cookies lost some heft in the redesign, it is still a good idea to know the caloric content and serving size of your favorite cookie. Take this little quiz and see if you know what you're dealing with when you bite into another Thin Mint.


1 of 6

How many cookies are considered a serving of Samoas (aka Carmel deLites)?

2 of 6

Now that you know the serving size for a Samoa, how many calories are in one serving?

3 of 6

How many Thin Mint cookies equal a serving?

4 of 6

How many calories are in four Thin Mint cookies?

5 of 6

Are Girl Scout cookies affected by the peanut butter recall?

6 of 6

Speaking of peanut butter cookies, how many calories are in a two-cookie serving of Tagalongs, the chocolate peanut butter cookies?

6/6. Got addicted to their cookies when I was a Girl Scout many, many years ago. I always buy several boxes of cookies from the girls when they start selling them. The money goes to a great cause that I'm proud to contribute to.

I am a mom of a hard-core girl scout this year! Just last night I froze my butt off outside the grocery store for 2 hours so she could hock more boxes of these things. I should have done better than 4/6 at this quiz i guess. Thanks to all for supporting our little girls in Girl Scouts by buying these delicious yummies. Most people are so nice with the girls. Many bought boxes, and simply donated them back because they didn't want to eat them themselves. We are sending the donated boxes overseas to the troops!

My family bought like 8 boxes of girl scout cookies this year. Of course I am being strong and haven't had one because I am on a diet. I miss them though.

2 peanut butter patties for 140 calories!! Ill take it! I always thought it was a lot more..... and i still dont et the whole damn name change thing...... PEANUT BUTTER PATTIES makes way more sense than tagalongs..... Im my honor I will try to not eat all the cookies when i buy them.... God I love these cookies, and the faces on the little girls when you buy them!

I like 'em, but I like keeping my extra money and staying within my daily calorie range much more. I do my best to pretend GSC don't exist. I smile at the kids but imagine their piles of cookies are really a pesky mirage! :)
