The Most Popular Girl Scout Cookie In Every State
We thought it was politics dividing Americans, but Girl Scout cookies are apparently a very divisive issue!
At last, everyone’s favorite season has arrived! No, not spring—Girl Scout cookie season!!! If you’re like us, you’re stocking up on all your favorites (you can even order them online if you don’t have any cookie-selling Girl Scouts in your life).
People are passionate about their favorite Girl Scout cookies, aren’t they? People who love Thin Mints don’t understand why others prefer Tagalongs, and vice versa. Have you ever wondered what the most popular Girl Scout cookie is in each state?
Well, thanks to Influenster, the product discovery and reviews platform, we now have that information. Influenster conducted a survey in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Girl Scout cookie sales. How were the results determined? Influenster surveyed 5,054 people across the U.S. from January 13-23, 2017.
Any guesses about which cookie took the No. 1 spot before we reveal the results?
Okay…ready?! If you guessed Thin Mints, you were right. Caramel deLites/Samoas came in second place, with Peanut Butter Patties/Tagalongs taking third. Influenster even came up with this handy—and delicious-looking—graphic that shows the most popular Girl Scout cookie by state.
