The Most Popular Girl Scout Cookies in Every State

Thin Mints sweep the nation as the most popular Girl Scout cookie.

It's that time of year again! Girl Scout cookie season is officially in full swing. Some of you might remember how we chose to honor the delicious snack last year. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first sale of cookies by Girl Scouts, we conducted an online poll with 5,054 Influenster members across the nation to find out which cookie reigns supreme state by state. See our findings below!

No surprise here—the delectable Thin Mints® we all know and love scored the highest number of votes and was also a top choice in the most states. As the best-selling Girl Scout cookie, Thin Mints® have been a cult classic for generations.

Caramel deLites® / Samoas® came in a close second for overall number of votes, keeping their long-standing competition with Thin Mints® alive.

Peanut Butter Patties® / Tagalongs®, another drool-worthy treat, came in third for the total number of votes. This came as no surprise, considering Americans eat more than one billion pounds of peanut butter every year!
