I love Alice in Wonder Land / Through The Looking-Glass so the Mad Hatter Deli already is a win in my book. In addition to sandwiches, they bake cookies, which you can see in the Window.

The cookies are $.70 per (cash only).

These cookies are about texture (notice the artisan spiral shape on top of cookie). The cookie has a some what hard on the outerlayer, and soft interior. Upon biting the cookie, it immediately breaks off a chunk without the crispy-cookie report. The soft interior (pillow) mixes well with the raspberry filling, for almost a cake-like feel. There’s something different about it.

This cookie may be in the running for best cookie in town.

Girl Scout Thin Mints Vs. Keebler Grasshoppers

May 14, 2008

Girl Scout Cookies
My Girl Scout Cookie Haul

I’ve often wondered why someone would buy Girl Scout Cookie Thin Mints when there is a facsimile available in the form of Keebler Grasshoppers. Apparently I’m not the only one who has pondered this cookie dilemma.

I would have to disagree with the linked bloggers. The Thin Mints have a much mintier taste, and due to the larger size, more crunchiness per cookie. Eating a couple consecutively results in a nice cookie slurry in your mouth. The grasshoppers DO have more of a fudgey taste, but it’s not what I’m looking for.

Both cookies are best right out of the freezer.

Girl Scout Thin Mints are the clear winner in my mind. I think I paid $3.50 a box? See you local girl scout for details or ebay.
