If you haven’t heard by now… the Girl Scouts are now selling the legendary Girl Scout Cookies and shipping them directly to your home.
Everyone who’s anyone has had a girl scout cookie in some capacity. We’ve all broken piggy banks and evicted wallet dust bunnies in search of a crisp ten-dollar bill that will let you get your fix. Opinions surrounding the best Girl Scout Cookie are volatile and divisive. Thin Mint fanatics and Samoa warriors will draw blood in a heated battle to determine who comes out on top.
As gamers, we usually keep a small stash of snacks in the pantry for a late-night gaming session. What better gaming fuel is there than a box of delicious Girl Scout cookies delivered right to your door? You’re giving business-savvy ladies hope for a better future, arming them with the skills they need to be successful in life, and acquiring a horde of tasty treats that keep you inside and away from others. But, have you ever thought about what your favorite Girl Scout cookie would be if it was a video game genre?
Lemon-ups, the Indie game. Like the Indie game, they’re packed with hopes, dreams, and motivation. Lemon-ups aren’t quite as popular as the other cookies since they’re new to 2020 and don’t have as many flashy fillings, but they’re filled with just as many quality ingredients and that same wonderful feeling you get when you savor the lemon icing zest that is unique to their specific cookie.
Trefoils, the FPS game. Trefoils are simple shortbread cookies, giving you the same satisfying and reliable experience with every bite. No matter how you decorate it, it will always be a shortbread cookie, and there’s nothing wrong with that. The Old reliable FPS, the trefoils are a great snack when you want something with not a lot of glitz and glamour that you can just dive right into and enjoy.
Do-si-dos, the Strategy game. Just like a Strategy game, the do-si-do has multiple layers and delicious textures to it. The peanut butter adds a nice crunch and dose of protein that keeps you going when you’re conquering foreign lands and decimating your enemies’ armies. The do-si-do is a clean cookie that doesn’t leave much of a crumb trail.
Samoas, the MMO game. Beloved Samoas, you grace us with your crisp, coconut-y presence once a year in an explosion of fanaticism and caramel. The rest of the year they’re salivated over and hotly debated as the best Girl Scout cookie and the one that blows all the others out of the cookie box. When they finally arrive, they’re quickly gobbled up and bought out while the rest of us have to settle for Thin Mints until the MMO queue times die down.
Tagalongs, the Horror game. Delicious, smooth chocolate on the outside, and a crisp, rich peanut butter layered cookie on the inside. Like the Horror genre, the Tagalong looks innocent at first and lures you into a false sense of chocolate security before you take your first bite. Then, when you take that first bite you realize that something isn’t right here. When did peanut butter come into the equation? The do-si-do doesn’t hide its peanut butter filling.
girl scout s’mores
Girl scout s’mores, the RPG game. One of my personal favorites, the s’mores cookie is a comfort snack filled with a fluffy marshmallow and chocolate filling. It’s a nostalgic cookie, similar to many of our favorite RPGs that we grew up with. Role-playing games have depth, story, and meaning similar to the delicious, thick, buttery cookie of the s’mores cookies and are a reminder of simpler, more innocent times.
Thin mints, the Survival game. Just like the Survival genre, thin mints don’t have to try very hard to be liked by just about everyone. There’s a little bit of something there for everyone, be it crafting, combat, and the occasional multiplayer aspect. The thin mint is a mature cookie, with a cool, refreshing taste that asks that you stay calm in even the most dire survival encounters.
