  • The “I’ll do it later”sToffee-tastic

So you’re not into doing things when you should, but that’s okay, neither is this cookie. Girl Scout cookies are sold during a certain time period, but these cookies like to stick around, in bulk until the very end; they don’t sell out too fast. If you’re looking for procrastination opportunities, just drop what you’re doing. Stop the productivity and eat some Toffee-tastic cookies now instead…or later. Whatever floats your toffee.

  • Optimist Savannah Smiles

You’re the one everyone looks to when they need some motivation; the ever positive optimist. Well stranger, we’ve got the right cookie picked out for you: Savannah Smiles! Let’s be real, just hearing the name makes you smile. These cookies are the type of indulgence you eat in the sun with a big smile as your mood is instantly brightened. So keep thinking positively and don’t forget to smile sharing your Savannah Smiles.

  • The Fittest in the “Survival-of-the-Fittest”Cranberry Citrus Crisps

So you’re ready. You’re just ready; you’re always ready. Well, so are these cookies. If there’s an apocalypse, you can grab ‘em and go.  Sure, they’re a bit hidden, but you’ll be prepared to find them. Cranberry Citrus Crisps, they go unseen and only the fittest of the them all can find them-you can find them.

  • FreshTrios

What’s cooler than being cool? You (If you thought it was ice cold, then you’re not as fresh as you think you are). Trios are so fresh they’re back from their year break. While you may not be back from a year break, everyone who knows you, knows you’re so fresh they name toothpaste flavors after you. So keep up you’re chill, always look sharp, and eat you Trios.

These cookies help sustain your binge-watching episodes for so long that Netflix even tells you to go outside.

  • Go-GettersSamoas

You’re into being first and you live by “the early bird gets the worm.” When it comes to Somoas, the early bird really is the winner. These cookies sell out quickly, so only the go-getting ever get a taste. Stretch your legs, get some rest; tomorrow’s a new day…to find Samoas.

  • HipsterDo-si-dos/Peanut Butter Sandwiches
