    To add a little balance, when the Girl Scouts suck me in it is normally for some Thin Mints, they are delicious!

    No need for that. You can get them all year round for about $2.00. I can assure you these are every bit as good as the Girl Scout version.

    I agree with you but they could sell both and then be competition to the Girl Scouts.

    Think about it, if some Girl Scouts want to be Boy Scouts they should have a competing product to push.

    Are either of these better than Thin Mints?

    In a blind taste test, you'd have a hard time picking between them. There are knock-offs of all of the GS cookies now and they are just as good as the original.

    IMO, honestly all three taste identical. Little Brownie Bakers and Keebler are both owned by Kellogs. They probably use the same recipe. It wouldn't surprise me if Kellogs made the Great Value brand as well.

    I have the Grasshoppers in the kitchen right now. They are close.

    Haven't had the Great Value but I can tell a difference between thin mints and the grasshopper. Thin Mints have a bit more "tang" for lack of a better word.

    Agreed. I mean, they're just cookies. Cookies in general are what they are. Pretty good but nothing to loose your mind over. I can't think of one single cookie I'd miss if I never had one again.

    Good. Maybe they will go out of business. Then I wouldn't have to dodge them outside of Walmarts front door like a they were a "homeless" guy at a stop light begging for chain.

    It might be fun to buy a bunch of the Great Value cookies, and stand at the door next to the Girl Scouts selling them for $2.50.
