Girl Scout Cookie season will soon come to an end and you may find yourself looking for the same taste throughout the year. Look no further because I compiled a list of all the Girl Scout Cookies and their substitutes!!!
However keep in mind you’re helping a great cause when you purchase from Girl Scouts – so keep doing that. Use this list only to suppress your appetite when Girl Scouts are not around!
First off are the Thin Mints. These mint flavored cookies covered in dark chocolate are the most popular Girl Scout Cookies according to statistics. Keebler makes the exact same cookie. They call them Grasshopper Fudge Mint Cookies.
Second are Samoas, which are also known as Caramel deLites. These cookies are covered in caramel, covered with toasted coconut, then strips of chocolate and have a whole in the center. Again Keebler makes the same thing under and calls it Coconut Dreams.
Third up are Tagalongs. They are also known as Peanut Butter Patties. These cookies have a layer of peanut butter and the whole thing is covered in chocolate. Closest thing to Tagalongs you can find in your grocery store is probably Keebler’s Peanut Butter Filled cookies.
Do-si-dos is another peanut butter flavored Girl Scout Cookie. Another name for them is Peanut Butter Sandwiches. They’re oatmeal cookies with peanut butter filling. You can get pretty much the identical cookie in your grocery store – if you happen to live in Canada. They’re made by Christie, which is the Canadian version of Nabisco here in U.S.
Trefoils are pretty standard shortbread cookies. They also go under the name Shortbreads. There are many similar shortbread cookies out there but closest one is probably made by Lu – simply called Shortbread.
It was a bit difficult finding something similar to Savannah Smiles. These are lemon wedge cookies dusted in powdered sugar with zesty lemon flavor. The company that makes them is called Niche Foods under the Lemon Coolers name.
Thanks-A-Lot cookies are another shortbread style cookie. These have chocolate coating on the bottom. We have two options to give you the same taste as Thanks-A-Lot’s. Either try Keebler’s Sandies Fudge Dipped Shortbread cookies or Dare’s Normandie Shortbread.
Shout Outs are Belgian style cookies. They are light, crips, and have that caramelized taste. Biscoff is definitely what you want to go with if you want to get Shout Outs when you can’t find any Girl Scout Cookies.
Lemonades are yet another shortbread cookie which have that lemon slice pattern on top and zesty lemon icing on the bottom. We couldn’t find the same cookie for Lemonades but Scottish Walkers makes lemon flavored shortbread cookies which they claim is “zesty” just like Girl Scout Cookies. They are called Pure Butter Shortbread Lemon Thins.
Thank U Berry Munch. Good old cranberry cookies with some white chocolate. You’d think it would be easy to find a brand that made these cookies. It wasn’t! And we’re still looking for suggestions for here but I think we have a very very similar one here. They’re Mrs Fields Cranberry White Chunk cookies.
And finally Dulce De Leche. These are Latin American style cookies that do not exist in North America as far as I can tell. I’m sure there’s a brand out there maybe in Brazil, maybe in Argentina, somewhere that make these cookies with milk caramel chips. Sounds simple enough but nothing from Keebler was even close. If you know of a brand that look and taste the same to Girl Scouts’ Dulce De Leche please let me know!
UPDATE: We do have a cookie that is really similar to Girl Scouts’ Dulce De Leche. It is the Goya Maria Dulce De Leche cookies.
Did I miss anything, or do you have a suggestion for a cookies that taste more like Girl Scout Cookies? Please let me know!!!
