Girl Scout Cookie Names: Why Are They Different?

Let’s be honest, there’s no better season than Girl Scout Cookie Season.

Those morsels of heaven are already deliciously addicting, then they throw in an adorable little girl asking you to support her troop and there’s truly no way you can say no.

But if your favorite cookie is the Samoa, you might get a confused look based on where you’re making your purchases. Why? Well, the Samoa is also sold and distributed under another name… the Caramel deLite.

If you’re scratching your head at this it’s probably because up until now you didn’t know that the cookies had different names depending on what region they are sold in.

This is all based on the fact that the Girl Scouts of America employ two different companies to make their famous cookies. So depending on where you purchase your cookies, things might look AND taste different.

Let’s take the Samoa, for example. Half the country knows that this cookie is a layer of caramel, dark chocolate coating, and toasted coconut…. or is it? The Samoa’s alter ego, the Caramel deLite has milk chocolate, a vanilla cookie, and less caramel.

Mind blown, right?

So, when you make your purchases this year be sure to check out the label and see if that Samoa you’re munching on is perhaps a Caramel deLite after all…
