The Girl Scouts don't officially kick off their cookie sales until Saturday. My wife, however, already ordered a couple of boxes from some family involved in Cheryl's Thursday night league. Then, last night before I got home, Cheryl bought three more boxes--already delivered--from a neighborhood girl.

Those boxes contain my three favorites: Caramel deLites, Peanut Butter Patties (not to be mistaken with Peanut Butter Sandwiches) and Thin Mints.

If I were buying them, though, I'd just go for two or three boxes of the Caramel deLites. Though I'm usually no big fan of mixing chocolate and coconut, these cookies can't be beat in my book.

And I won't be buying any of a new flavor that we're sampling today in the newsroom. Reporter Shelly Birkelo says they're Mango Cremes with nutrifusion. They're vanilla and coconut cookies filled with a tangy mango-flavored creme and enhanced with nutrients from fruits. Sorry, girls, but the scent makes me feel like I'm biting into dried shampoo.

Which Girl Scout cookies are your favorite?
