Top Four

Top Four 27: Girl Scout Cookies 🍪


  you go get some water it's paper towels

  what are you gonna do I'm gonna open the

  cookies Oh Oh grab the ones from the

  fridge to cold ones open here I'm gonna

  rip these boxes and it's gonna be a


  never gonna close them again there's a

  lot of boxes and it's gonna be a while

  no I just try not to paper cut myself

  which I already did that's also a good

  reason to be careful open here

  sounds gluten-free but it's gonna rip a

  little tabby tab up there it goes it's

  over that one's still opening but we are

  back to our usual antics at top 4 where

  we eat a whole bunch of garbage for you

  the people to experience what is the

  best garbage to eat so you don't have to

  waste your own calories we are getting

  fat for science that's it that's our

  excuse at least so this time we are in

  case you haven't figured out yet

  this time we are testing all of the

  varieties in the u.s. at least I don't

  know if they're different anywhere else

  of Girl Scout cookies because it is Girl

  Scout cookie season Girl Scouts a us

  thing only

  I think there's Girl Scouts other places

  they might be called different things

  but we have girls who join an

  organization to better themselves and

  their communities and learn leadership

  skills and sell cookies for good causes

  yeah the cookies I believe are the large

  fundraising portion of it

  yes and it also teaches girls a whole

  bunch of skills which are listed on the

  box as goal-setting decision-making

  money management people skills and

  business ethics cool yeah which results

  in you know roughly in in the late

  winter time around here at least some

  young girl usually accompanied by a

  parent or guardian knocks on your door

  ask you wanna buy Girl Scout cookies and

  the correct answer is always yes the

  only question is how many and which ones

  and this year Marco was left alone

  there's a that's starting to sound bad

  anyway Marco was here without my


  when the girl-scout arrived and ended up

  ordering ten boxes of cookies well

  here's what happened tiff told me hey I

  think she's gonna come by today I'm not

  gonna be here so just order what we like

  so I ordered what we like and I also

  whenever I go I I'm the primary grocery

  shopper of the family and we never buy

  cookies by the way we never buys like

  stop store I can't store is the word yes

  we never buy store-bought cookies okay I

  was trying to I was fighting the long

  island hard with that one it's - I

  bought I mean come on yeah right

  so I whenever I am shopping for food or

  selecting food I always take a couple of

  risks on new things and that's how we

  discover things that we like and so the

  combination of tip saying get what we

  like and also my my constant policy of

  just trying new things when I'm shopping

  for food I got to each of the flavors we

  liked and I got one box each of a few

  new flavors and that quickly adds up to

  10 boxes which I was made fun of

  relentlessly by my wonderful wife here

  for four weeks until the order arrived

  and still now since the order has

  arrived but you know the other reason to

  over buy them is that usually you only

  really get the chance to buy them once a

  year and it's kind of funny for us to do

  the show reviewing them all as a service

  to you the listener right after you can

  probably buy them so sorry about that

  refer back to the episode next next

  early spring when you can actually order

  them yeah but we are still doing the

  grunt work here for you the people

  because we are so giving in that way

  anyway so we have before us eight boxes

  of different varieties that we have

  available to us here in New York because

  I after the order of 10 boxes went

  through I called up our Girl Scout and

  was like give me one more of every

  single box so that we can test it and so

  here we are we are also testing a couple

  of the chocolate varieties in their cold

  state in addition to their warm state

  because they are sometimes way better

  cold and we just wanted to tell you and

  so we will test them and then rank them

  yeah so first up let's see what are we

  gonna try first we should try and do

  you most bland first well maybe most

  popular first because the popular ones

  are gonna be least surprising to people

  because most people have had them before

  and have already formed their opinions

  so maybe popular first and then new and

  more rare flavors the end well but they

  get they get more complicated so like I

  think for palate purposes ok for palate

  purposes we should start off with like

  the trifles as the tri foil tri foils

  but isn't that supposed to be three

  layers isn't that what a tri trifle is I

  think it's true foil or something and I

  believe that's a shape Oh anyway so

  let's start out with those because I

  believe their basic butter cookies let

  me grab that box it is blue it's

  shortbread right yeah traditional

  shortbread cookies so take your

  shortbread we're not gonna feel well

  after this but I think we've eaten whig

  worse things and felt more sick you

  fight enough on the open one I opened it

  far enough for myself like a millimeter

  to get one cookie out so I couldn't get

  the one behind it let's see and this is

  the basic shortbread cookie basic basic

  sure friend oh i the whole thing

  I am planning ahead and I can quickly a

  bite yeah I can't keep up this pace

  because I know how I'm going to feel in

  20 minutes if I eat the whole thing so I

  really enjoy the trefoil this is it it's

  one of those things look like the basic

  shortbread cookie I think most people

  don't give it a lot of credit it has a

  Girl Scout insignia on it yeah like it's

  a basic cookie but I really like basic

  cookies done well and that's what this

  is it's a basic you know butter

  shortbread cookie done really well and I

  appreciate that it's nothing like it

  like I'm not gonna like remember it

  tomorrow you know but but at the time

  I'm eating it I find it quite pleasant

  but it's really good if you have it with

  like coffee or tea or something like

  that yeah because it isn't a very strong

  flavor it isn't like it's very much like

  a tea biscuit is that what that means I

  don't know I'm just guessing

  okay sorry Mike all right so we will ask

  the British after this or they will tell

  us rather well they don't have Girl

  Scout cookies but I guess when we show

  the pictures will let's see yeah goes on

  alright so next in the basic category we

  have let's see the lemon ones maybe

  yeah we have the toffee tastic

  or the Savannah Smiles let's do toffee

  tastic first cuz the lemon might affect

  our palate slightly more okay this is a

  rich buttery cookie with sweet chunky

  toffee bits and I believe that is the

  gluten free option isn't it it is gluten

  for yes yeah so that's probably a fairly

  new option before they just motto out

  these are pretty thick you want to share

  one well yeah I have two to try them at

  the same time okay cuz I mean the

  crunching is the best part of the audio

  here isn't it I need to teach you how to

  open the plastic tube wrap the way to

  open it is not to just open the end it's

  to tear a line so I can get my own

  cookie out rather than just having your

  cookie be able to come out and having no

  other access to the other ones all right


  so far the box is my favorite color so

  and we both love toffee

  yeah so it's teal box toffee cookies

  let's see how these go I sprayed cookie

  crumbs all over the office so when the

  answer here in a few days like I can

  blame you look at below your chair

  there's cookie crumbs hops come here boo

  okay these are really good yeah the only

  thing is that they they're a little hard

  to chew cuz the toffee is so firm and

  sticky you kind of get stuck in your

  teeth oh but I like it cuz now it's

  melting in my teeth and it's tasting

  really good the other thing is that they

  they're they're very thick cookie and I

  would say maybe a little dry I like I

  don't know this is the result of

  whatever alternative to gluten they have

  used here or what but they are they are

  very thick crumbly dry cookie with these

  big sticky bits in them so the flavor I

  find good but the mechanics

  I guess the construction it's a little

  bit a little bit hard to get through

  well the toffee tastic have definitely

  moved up the list over the trifles for

  me so trip oils your Falls yeah I don't

  know how to pronounce it but I know it's

  not trifles that's one thing I can be

  sure of all right so we are two cookies

  in and I am covered in crumbs because I

  am a monster this is going to be a day a

  good day for

  dog and the vacuum cleaner just keep

  them away from the chocolate okay next

  to the Savannah Smiles which are these

  like lemon dusted white cookies room

  crisp zesty lemon wedge cookies dusted

  with powdered sugar I can't believe you

  didn't order the toffee tastic ones for

  ourselves we only have one box of these

  for testing but okay now on to the

  Savannah smile oh those are lemony and

  delicious I'm a big fan of Savannah

  Smiles mm-hmm like I liked them before

  this I like them now so it's you know

  it's a it's a lemon crunchy cookie

  covered in powdered sugar there's not

  much you can do wrong there it is amping

  up the delicious here because like each

  one is better than the last one yeah I

  I'm a big fan of Savannah Smiles it is

  there light inside like it's it's not

  like a thick consistency it's a light

  crunchy inner cookie with just the right

  amount of lemon on the outside that it

  you get the nice lemon tartness but it's

  not overpowering like you know like like

  if I if I leave you to make a lemon

  sauce unattended you will you will put

  like six lemons in enough sauce to cover

  like one small salad yeah don't leave me

  alone with a lemon sauce no like I can't

  trust you with with the bounds cuz you

  like lemon more than most people these I

  feel like have a perfect balance of like

  how much lemon that you actually get in

  big fan

  all right next up the food chain here we

  have the DOS Eidos which is a crunchy

  oatmeal sandwich cookie with creamy

  peanut butter filling one of two

  peanutbutter options in the Girl Scout

  lineup the other being the Tagalog I'm

  taking the top cookie so I have an

  advantage yeah it's a tough cookie

  advantage all right so these are smaller

  than I expected but I guess you don't

  want a massive thing

  okay we're stepping back we're stepping

  back to the delicious like from the

  delicious precipice that we were on

  there they're good yeah these are really

  good but I would say they don't really

  stand out like I'm a huge fan of peanut

  butter flavored desserts so I do have a

  bit of a bias towards this but it is

  really really good but it's it's kind of

  like the the trefoil which is like it's

  a really good implementation of a fairly


  cookie it's not it's there's nothing new

  here I mean like I'm so far liking these

  variety of plain butter cookies they are

  easy to eat with like a tea or coffee

  they're nice to put out if you're an old

  woman like I am put out for who I don't

  know the mailman I don't know

  I'm getting lost okay I'm better with

  focusing on opening and eating from

  these boxes all right next up we have

  the Girl Scout s'mores cookies I are

  these new or new ish because I they're

  new ish they have a very potent smell as

  soon as you open them moments like um

  maple syrup II almost but they're

  s'mores so they are Oh see now you're

  leaving me with second cookie grabbing

  there's two rows you can get to yours

  just as easily these are crunchy graham

  sandwich cookies with creamy chocolate

  and marshmallow filling yeah that's a

  grandma or it's a s'more all right I

  don't really like these no there's they

  have a bit of an odd flavor it have like

  a chemical taste to them yeah like I

  think your identification of the smell

  is almost mapley mm-hmm is is right they

  don't taste like like marshmallow and

  chocolate it tastes like something else

  like it is kind of a weird like

  sweetener like they it like they've used

  the wrong kind of sweetener for this

  flavor profile like it tastes a little

  bit like maybe maybe what we're

  detecting is like the the what's

  supposed to be the honey flavoring of

  the graham crackers that are their

  sandwich in it here but it doesn't work

  whatever it is it doesn't work it's it's

  not a good balance and yeah not a fan no

  I took one bite of those and I do not

  want another bite so now II yeah that's

  why you only take one bite well I'm glad

  you only bought one box of these says

  yes all right let's take this halfway

  and thank you very much to blue apron

  for this for their support of this show

  and all of real afm blue apron a better

  way to cook alright so we are 5 cookies

  in we have what about 3 more actually


  3 more types but two of them we have

  cold and not cold and room temperature

  yeah okay you're closer to the open cold

  Tagalongs actually I'm gonna say right

  now for the sake of radio time because

  that's a we're on we're on a radio time

  anyway what is happening to me we know

  what these taste like warm and they are

  good but not as good as they are cold so

  I'm just gonna skip right to a cold yeah

  I think I agree with that statement and

  I would I would almost say the exaction

  thing about Thin Mints that's true I

  don't think we need to try

  room-temperature Thin Mints we we just

  had them like a few days ago I just

  opened it so it's open already I'll put

  in the fridge all right so so tag-along

  this is a a peanut butter layer on top

  of a shortbread cookie you have a box

  over there read that I am back Bob well

  it's it's it's peanut butter on top of

  shortbread wrapped in chocolate nice and

  easy you're not gonna read the box

  continuity man either so good I love

  these so much the peanut butter is so

  right it's almost like a Reese's peanut

  butter situation a little bit like a

  schmear and dipped in chocolate yeah and

  you get the nice crunch from the cookie

  in the middle and the cookies not too

  thick and the chocolate isn't too thick

  and the chocolates kind of creamy that's

  why they're better cold mm-hmm yeah I

  would say you nailed it with like the

  ratios are just really right with this

  like each each one of the ingredients is

  good you know it's I don't think I need

  them are like gonna blow you away like I

  accidentally ate the whole thing

  not not an accident I bet yeah yeah I

  I'm a huge fan of Tagalongs again my

  preference for peanut butter starts

  there a little bit here but big fan and

  that has not changed in this comparison

  so I think we should move on to Samoas

  cult echelons I would say Samoas and

  Thin Mints are probably the two most

  popular or at least most famous ones

  what do you say yeah I think so

  and they're the ones like they're so

  popular that you can get like flavors of

  ice cream and stuff that are like

  officially licensed flavored like these

  things okay so up until recently I

  thought I did not like coconut but turns

  out I do so all of you out there who

  think you don't like coconut should

  probably try these cookies anyway

  because you might have changed your mind

  with your coconut like egde yeah I feel

  like Samoas have to be like the Gateway

  to liking coconut and candy for a lot of

  people because I I don't like coconut in

  most candy like the way did you like to

  shave like or like the you know just

  like shredded coconut like I don't like

  a mounds bar or I'm enjoy bar like I

  that's too much for me I don't like

  coconut macaroons whatever those are

  they're not real macaroons and they

  shouldn't have the same name I really

  don't like those two different oh

  there's a different amount of OHS yeah

  it's basically the same name I mean yes

  they're it's one letter different but

  anyway Asamoah is a crisp cookie coated

  in caramel

  sprinkled with toasted coconut and

  striped with dark chocolate coating yeah

  I mean chances are if you've ever had a

  Girl Scout cookie there's a very good

  chance it was this one it looks kind of

  like a doughnut

  it's like ring shaped all right let's

  give us a shot these make you feel like

  you're eating something healthy because

  of the coconut good present at all and

  these two I as a big fan of refrigerated


  I have tried refrigerator Muse in the

  past but I feel like it makes everything

  too hard like it makes the the caramel

  layer really hardens up and yeah yeah

  you need that you need to keep the

  caramel soft caramel caramel whatever

  caramel yeah and the only downside I

  would say to these besides the fact that

  it's way too easy to eat way too many of

  them the only downside is that the

  coconut gets stuck at my teeth for a

  long time afterwards like it'll be like

  15 minutes later and I'll like find a

  piece of coconut my mouth still so

  that's that's kind of not great but

  otherwise big fan you have quite the

  line up there of half-eaten cookies I do

  not have the amount of discipline you do

  and I keep accidentally finishing my

  cookie well they also they they keep

  reminding me like which ones we've had

  I'm gonna refer to yours in which order

  because my mine is that mine's just a

  pile of crumbs right now oh man yeah

  hops is going to have a

  good afternoon oh he's gotta keep away

  from the chocolate yeah all right okay

  and last we have the Thin Mints these if

  I had to guess oh man I did open this

  like a jerk if I had to guess which one

  flavor of girls canoes was most popular

  I bet it's Thin Mints Colton Merrick

  Colton mint fridge temperature not free

  to temperature but fridge temperature

  though I'm getting a warm thinman I want

  to compare do you wanna compare no I

  don't need to fine they're better cold

  back in the box so refreshing that's a

  good closer yeah I'm glad we saved it

  for last for the fina cuz mint really

  has like a kind of you know dessert last

  thing you eat kind of attribute yeah

  they're really good I am NOT as obsessed

  with them as many people are I find them

  to be very good Mint cookies but I I'm

  not like totally obsessed with mint

  flavor I like it but I I don't like need

  to have it all the time so I find these

  to me similar to like the basic try foil

  or the whatever the the peanut butter

  sandwich one was called with that dosey

  doe yeah it's is it like it's a really

  good implementation of a fairly basic

  concept so I like it but I'm not

  obsessed with it well but nothing else

  really tastes like a thin mint right

  like Thin Mint cookies have their own

  unique taste I don't really know

  anything else that tastes a lot like it

  and I know that things have tried to

  taste like it and then called themselves

  like you know Thin Mint style or

  whatever yeah but yeah alright maybe I

  mean that might be so I don't know I

  understand why people love them so much

  but I would rather have like one of the

  peanut butter ones or the lemon ones I

  think okay are you ready to rank it says

  this is actually a little bit hard in

  some of the details but I think so I'm

  really confused okay so I had the fridge

  and non fridge thinman

  and because of the amount of time that

  the fridge ones have been out of the

  fridge there was not that much

  difference like 15 minutes yeah but I

  think they are much better cold yeah I

  would even I'd be willing to try them in

  the even in the freezer to get them even

  colder to see if that matters yeah

  that'd probably be really good the thing

  is like because it's it's just a very

  thin layer

  of of chocolate wrapped around what is

  basically a chocolate mint cookie mm-hmm

  and so there's naming mint cookie

  yeah and Thin Mints ha ha and so there's

  nothing in there that would get like

  weirdly hard if you froze it like like

  the way like I said with Samoa is that

  like the camel gets too hard you can't

  really freeze Samoas but but Thin Mints

  I feel like because there's nothing in

  there that gets worse if it gets really

  cold we see wafers covered in chocolaty

  coating made with natural oil of

  peppermint alright so I I don't even

  know if I could do

  number four yet I'd rather start with

  number one and count down okay I think

  that might be easier so my number one no

  question is the tag along the peanut

  butter and cookie wrapped in chocolate

  Wow that is I just I love it that is the

  one that if I'm left alone with an

  assortment of Girl Scout cookies that's

  the one that I will shamefully eat the

  most of the fastest hmm I'm so torn

  between my number ones being Tagalongs

  or the Savannah Smiles the lemon one see

  actually that might be my number two I

  really like them a lot well cuz like

  Tagalongs are so heavy but they're

  really good yeah because the ratio is

  just right on and one of my favorite

  cookies in the entire world are oh my


  brain stopping Mariners yes mallomars

  I'm the shopper in the family I know

  everything that you like they're only

  seasonal very much like Girl Scout

  cookies because they melt so easily

  during shipment that they can only

  really be out in the wintertime so yeah

  with oh my gosh mallomars focus it's

  similar with like chocolate with a

  layered cookie situation inside that one

  is with marshmallow and cookie and

  chocolate and this is with the peanut

  butter cookie and chocolates

  I don't like peanut butter oh my gosh

  like why is this matter all of a sudden

  so much okay turns out peanut butter is

  amazing okay okay

  tagalogs yeah I think they might be my

  favorite well

  oh no wait don't wait the lemon water do

  you know the lemon ones are easier to

  eat oh not really

  no they are because they don't feel as

  guilty but they don't make me as guilty

  sure but they are simpler so and there

  there's no other thing like a tag-along

  but there are things like those lemon

  cookies okay tagalog number one we agree

  on our number one we agree has that ever

  happened before I don't know I don't

  think so we we don't have archives I

  mean we do but you don't listen to work

  like this okay yeah I don't know if the

  Technic before all right mark it down

  underscore David Smith alright so number

  one on to both of us is tag-along

  number two we might even agree number

  two I because I would say number two is

  lemon ones the smiles yep because I had

  that long debate it has to be number two

  that's pretty good okay number two okay

  I mean I can't believe it it's awesome

  it'll make it will certainly make a

  future shopping easier yep yep cuz uh

  yeah alright so number three see this is

  where I think we're gonna diverge a

  little bit I would say it's it's a tough

  call for me

  I like well done simple things and so

  I'm actually thinking for my number

  three I'm deciding between the peanut

  butter sandwich what is it called again

  I keep forgetting the that's it I'm

  deciding between the dosey doe and the

  trefoil for my number three Wow because

  again like the truffle oil it's that the

  basic shortbread cookie but I like

  simple things done well yeah woods right

  now because you're not going in that

  direction at all yeah and like the Samoa

  is a great flavor but it's a little bit

  like the coconut is like a little heavy

  for me like it cuz I because I don't I

  don't like coconut that much I like it

  basically only in Samoas more like in

  other forms like I like coconut milk in

  like you know in dinners and stuff of

  that but like shredded candied coconut I

  don't like very okay but wait we are

  judging Girl Scout cookies here you're

  talking about the things that you like

  in Girl Scout cookies now if you could

  get something that's like the dosey doe

  why would you buy it in the Girl Scout

  cookie form if you can't get something

  that's like a Samoa normally out in the

  grocery store hmm that's a good question

  this is what we're judging we're judging

  the girl

  scout cookie that's it that's it that's

  a tough yeah you're right okay so if I

  so so the I'm gonna say you know right

  now the the s'mores one is out and the

  toffee gluten-free one is out I don't

  like that I was almost a contender for

  me but because of what I just said I

  eliminated it for myself I it again just

  in case one two and the some and and the

  Thin Mint for me I think is also out

  because just because I don't I don't I'm

  not that big of a fan of mint like again

  I look I know why people love them and I

  like them I think they're good but I'm

  not obsessed with them so if Goodman I

  don't think is gonna is gonna make my

  top four just because there's so many

  other ones I like better so for me it

  the you know number one number two were

  set the main things I need to figure out

  are between Samoa dosey doe and trefoil

  how does that go two three and four I'm

  actually going to put trefoil as number

  three because it is because I already

  have my peanut butter roll filled at the

  top and I know I know myself wants to

  know like if these were all out on a

  table what would I actually eat and I

  really do like truffles they're really

  good basic butter cookies yes you can

  get those anywhere but these are really

  good and I like them so that's my number

  three all right I think I will listen to

  my impassioned speech about Girl Scout

  cookies and I'm gonna pick the Samoa as

  my number three because I really don't

  like that combination in anything else

  besides the Samoa so when it shows up

  it's nice to get a special box you don't

  have to get 20 boxes of them if you

  don't want to it's just nice to have the

  little tree of something different and

  something to look forward to during Girl

  Scout season so Simo is my number three

  did you say your number four yet not yet

  that's the meteor okay let's go might be

  you might be swimming me to change my

  mind on number three yeah because I mean

  honestly dude like I can get butter

  cookies elsewhere I can get cookie you

  know right again I mean yes you could

  say that the same thing about the lemon

  cookies but this particular lemon cookie

  for those of you out there not eating

  these right now it is a lot better and

  has that much sharper lemon taste than

  most cookies that are advertised to be

  lemony so that's why they made it up

  there and that nice

  powdered sugar the size is really good

  that's why there deserve at number twos

  I think you've convinced me oh because

  the Samoa is because you can't get that

  so I'm gonna revive my number three my

  number three is now Samoa so we are

  actually now an agreement on the top

  three because you're right the other

  ones are great cookies but you don't

  need to get them in Girl Scout cookies

  like you can get them year-round and you

  know a short the shortbread is really

  good but like show up and gift baskets

  right likes like so we're like the Royal

  dongs butter cookies that I like so much

  yep but no sir you know also seasonal

  but yeah super boring

  there's no way to rank those they all

  taste the same they do not all taste the


  they know the pretzel ones are the best

  oh oh yeah wait are we is that gonna you

  know that the swirly ones are the second

  okay don't don't dump the gun here we

  could put that on the list and have an

  entire show about it alright and then

  you can have your platform and you can

  talk about your crazy cookies and how

  they all taste so different and you

  would rank all of them as number four

  let's not spoil it for our audience here

  they like to you know okay alright so

  number one two and three we read on and

  tag along Savannah Smiles and Samoa is

  number four what do you think you're

  number four is my number four is again

  for the exact same reason why the Samoa

  is made it up there it's going to be the

  cold Thin Mint there's nothing else that

  tastes like a thin mint out there there

  are plenty of mint cookies there plenty

  of mint candies those actually those

  little those mint wafer candies that

  have like the creamy mint inside with

  the light coating of chocolate that you

  get them in the big long skinny box and


  no not Andes mints those have green oh


  and they're square I mean come on look I

  get your men straight okay

  they are rectangular I apologize to all

  of you shape enthusiasts because now we

  just lost the shape it's there they go

  out the window I'm getting giddy alright

  okay yeah so I'm going with the Thin

  Mints because like I said there are

  cookie like this there are a lot of

  different kind of candies that are like

  this with a creamy Center but in a

  cookie no

  so then mint you are number four it's so

  good it's a thin mint I'm really tempted

  to agree with you for that for the same

  reasons that doesn't really like well I

  won number one come on but we're all I

  think I'm gonna agree they met number

  four I think we actually for the first

  time ever we have the same top four

  ranking because for the same reason of

  like you know the other ones are great

  but you can get them anywhere you like

  you can get you like my other my other

  two for contention for number four or

  the trefoil and the dosey doe and they

  are great I really enjoy eating them but

  if I'm if I'm ordering Girl Scout

  cookies those wouldn't be as high of a

  priority because I really well I you

  know you can't get Thin Mints anywhere

  else you have to get them here and if

  you want that flavor you have to order

  so like if I was ordering only four

  types of Girl Scout cookies it would be

  these four yep yes that's awesome well I

  want to put in an honorable mention for

  the toffee tastic because I really did

  like them it almost broke into the into

  the ranks but it is a more typical

  cookie that you could find a toffee bit

  cookie in a lot of different places yeah

  so that's the only reason it fell out of

  the rank for me but here there we are

  because so we have the Tagalongs as our

  number one the Savannah Smiles as number

  two the Samoas as our number three and

  thin mints as our number four

  look how sharing we are teamwork yeah

  you know I actually feel pretty good

  right now

  like after all of our other you know

  gluttony episodes I always feel really

  bad because like like the Starbucks one

  what's the worst like that like because

  the combination of all that milk and

  sugar and caffeine oh that one made me

  feel so sick I felt wiry by far the

  worst fr Starbucks second worst we can

  write these second worst after Dunkin


  what if our eating episodes how worse


  jellybeans I actually felt okay I think

  or at least less horrible and this I

  felt the best that's good that's good

  well you definitely ate less cookie than

  I did because I'm a monster and I would

  like to give a special shout-out to our

  Girl Scout Orly for coming by and

  selling us all of these amazing cookies

  and making this show possible

  you're the best okay now you just talk

  normal okay you don't need to say test

  tests all the time yeah okay that's

  gonna be your first one haha okay that

  one I think is the dosey doe peanut

  butter mm-hmm what do you think of that
