From coast to coast, one thing unites us all – our love for Girl Scout cookies!

Wondering why some states on our map show two different cookie names? That’s because there are actually TWO versions of six of the most iconic Girl Scout Cookie flavors! The company uses two different bakers (ABC Bakers and Little Brownie Bakers), and while some flavors are identical in taste and name, a few are entirely different. The interesting part? The region you call home in your state determines which one you’ve likely tried!

Well documented in our study is Middle America’s love of Tagalongs, with six Midwestern states claiming the iconic cookie as their favorite. The West Coast loves their Samoas and Thin Mints, with three states going all in for each classic flavor.

Like the rest of the country, the Eastern states have varied preferences, but it’s worth noting that Do-si-Dos are a favorite in Maine, Massachusetts, and Maryland.

The Most Popular Girl Scout Cookies Overall

When it comes to overall popularity, one thing is clear – Tagalongs take the cake (or cookie, we suppose)! Twelve states gave their top spot to the chocolate-peanut butter classic, followed by seven for Samoas and six for Raspberry Rallies.
