Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) – Girl Scout cookies are critical business.
Girls in varying uniforms have been pedaling these iconic treats given a early 1900s, and we’ve been happily snatching them up. Everyone has a favorite, yet would it advise we to know that your favorite cookie competence look—and taste—differently if we bought your box in a opposite state?
The Girl Scouts get their cookies supply from dual certified manufacturers, ABC Bakers and Little Brownie Bakers. The latter is in Louisville on National Turnpike. Little Brownie Bakers produces a cookies we are many expected to be informed with, as they use many of a Kentuckiana area.
Little Brownie Bakers reserve many of a nation with Girl Scout cookies, yet ABC Bakers does cover many of Texas, Virginia, Maine, Minnesota, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, as good as large regions of other states.
If we insincere ABC Bakers is stationed somewhere in a Midwest formed on where they supply, you’d be wrong. ABC Bakers is in Richmond, Va., reduction than a 10-hour expostulate from Louisville.
The dual bakeries became a unchanging producers of Girl Scout cookies in a 1990s. While a Girl Scouts classification doesn’t explain because a cookies differ between bakeries distant by reduction than 600 miles, they do advise on their website that recipes and mixture of cookies will vary.
In some instances, a bakeries lift totally opposite cookies. In further to a imperative flavors, ABC Bakers is charity dual cookies we won’t find during Little Brownie Bakers: Thanks-A-Lot® and Trio cookies. Thanks-A-Lot® cookies are Thank-You-stamped, fudge-dipped shortbread, and Trios are gluten giveaway peanut butter oatmeal cookies. Likewise, Toffee-tastic® can usually be found with Little Brownie Bakers.
An essay published by a Los Angeles Times initial alerted consumers to a differences in a cookies. For many of a comparisons, that enclosed classics like Thin Mints®, a disproportion in calories seemed miniscule.
In general, Little Brownie Bakers’ cookies tend to be a choice with some-more calories in a recipe (Tagalongs®, Samoas® and Trefoils® tumble into that category), yet when ABC Bakers’ cookies have some-more calories, it’s by a poignant volume (Girl Scout S’mores® have 15 some-more calories during ABC Bakers, and Savannah Smiles® have a whopping 47 some-more calories).
The many conspicuous difference, though, is in a demeanour of a cookies. ABC Bakers’ Girl Scout S’mores® cookies are marshmallow- and chocolate-covered graham crackers—a intolerable contrariety to Little Brownie Bakers’ hammered sandwich-style cookie.
Thin Mints® from ABC Bakers have a gear-like shape.
And Savannah Smiles® and Lemonades® are dual totally opposite cookies.
What competence startle consumers a most, though, is that some of a many iconic names for a cookies are not a same. Samoas® from Little Brownie Bakers are called Caramel deLites® during ABC Bakers. Tagalongs® are famous as Peanut Butter Patties® elsewhere. Do-si-dos® are reduced to Peanut Butter Sandwiches. Trefoils®, that unclothed a Girl Scouts’ logo, are called Shortbread during ABC Bakers.
