There’s something about the image of the green box of Thin Mint cookies that brings fond childhood memories and happiness for me. I remember so well hauling my wagon around the neighborhood selling Girl Scout cookies, and when my daughter was younger and I was (somehow roped into being) the cookie Mom for our Girl Scout troop, I had the pleasure of reliving the experience. Thin Mints were the favorite back when I was young, and Thin Mints continue to be the favorite. Sure, people enjoy other Girl Scout cookies A LOT, but overall, it was the Thin Mints we always had to order more of.
In case you were curious, here are some fun facts about Girl Scout cookies!

KitKats are amazing and Thin Mints are amazing, and these Mint and Dark Chocolate KitKats are kind of like the love child of the two. You can order these in regular size or King Size (personally, when it comes to KitKats, I prefer the regular size). The bar is half covered in Mint Creme and half in Dark Chocolate. A win, but make sure to order when it’s not blazing hot out so these delicious candy bars don’t melt.
