Many people have a weakness for Girl Scout Cookies. They come in so many different varieties -- Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Do-Si-Dos, Trefoils, Shout Outs!, Thanks-A-Lot, Savannah Smiles, Thank U Berry Munch, Dulce de Leche, and Lemonades -- but by far, Samoas are most popular
, followed closely by Thin Mints. Too bad the cookie season is ending, but here are a few Girl Scout Cookie-related links to tide you over until next season.
