I Just Found Out That Girl Scout Cookies Have Different Names In Different States And We're All Living A Lie

Are they Samoas or Caramel deLites?

Girl Scout Cookies: We all grew up with them, we all love them, and as it turns out...we've all been calling them by different names.

Bravo

YUP. You might not know it, but Girl Scout Cookies are actually made by two different companies — ABC Bakers and Little Brownie Bakers — and depending on where you live, your cookies will be called totally different things.

Oh, and it's not just the NAMES of the cookies that are different — the recipes can totally vary, too! For example...

And this brings us to the BEST Girl Scout cookie of all time — Thin Mints. You'll be relieved to know that Thin Mints have the same name everywhere, but...

The Thin Mint recipe does vary slightly by state! According to the LA Times, one version is "crunchier, with more mint than chocolate," and the other has a "richer, smoother chocolate coating." You can view their map to see which one you've been eating.
