Differences in Girl Scout Cookies Based on Where You Live

It might seem like Girl Scout cookies are the same thing, but it turns out that Girl Scouts use two bakers, and the kind of cookie you get depends on where you live. The LA Times has a map to help you determine which one you get.

Girl Scouts employ two bakers, ABC and Little Brownie. In most cases, where you buy depends on which cookie you get, for example in Samoa instead of Caramel deLites or Tagalongs instead of peanut butter patties. Oddly enough, wherever you go, thin mints are always thin mints, but one has more mint than the other. This is all a bit confusing, and if you’ve switched from one zip code to another only to find that your favorite tagalongs are gone, the picture explains why. Fortunately, you can buy Girl Scout cookies online if needed. Head over to the LA Times to find your zip code on their interactive table.
