I saved the most famous cookie impersonator for last, and that is the Thin Mint. Everyone I know who loves Girl Scout Cookies goes crazy for the Thin Mints. I kind of understand it, and then I really don’t. It’s a cookies that tastes powerfully of mint, despite the cookies being dark chocolate and covered in chocolate. I think I have a hard time understanding why people would prioritize mint over chocolate, as I’d take chocolate any day! Despite my confusion they are a terribly popular flavor, so it’s only smart of Nestle to incorporate it into their line of Girl Scout Cookie candy bars.
I open the wrapper and find myself confused. The aroma is odd. It smells spicy at first, then the minty scent comes through. The chocolate scent is faint, and is barely noticeable under the mint. Interesting!
I take a bite and immediately I’m surprised to find that the wafers are dark, as if they’re made of chocolate. The taste is intensely minty, and the chocolate flavor only accents the mint. Again, I feel they nailed the thin mint cookie flavor. I am not sure as to why the wafers are chocolate, other than the thin mint cookie’s cookie is also chocolate. Appearances aside, this bar does a stellar job of imitating the original.
I still have to say that I liked the peanut butter creme the best, but this bar does a really good job of tasting like a think mint. If I was to rate all the cookies based on their likeness to the original, this one would win for sure. I’m just, not a big fan of mint. It really comes down to that fact. I think if you’re an avid Thin Mint fan you’d enjoy this candy bar. I think you’d miss the intense crunch of the cookie though.
