2022 Girl Scout Cookie Flavor Lineup & Nutrition Breakdown

Girl Scout cookie season runs (roughly) from January to April, so the 2022 Girl Scout Cookie season is upon us!

It’s definitely the second-most wonderful time of the year.

If you’re buying some Girl Scout cookies, the odds are that you’re not overly concerned with the calories. I mean, they ARE cookies after all, and you want to enjoy them as a delicious treat!

But with all the various nutrition guides I put together, I find it incredibly useful to know what I am eating. While I’m not necessarily concerned with whether or not a cookie is “healthy,” I like to know the calories & nutrition facts of the food I’m eating, so I want to break down every Girl Scout Cookie flavor here for you.

I’m not here to tell you which cookies are the so-called healthiest, because that is completely subjective. I can, however, break down the nutrition of each Girl Scout Cookie to help you better understand what you’re consuming.

At the end of the day, the taste is the most important factor in choosing a Girl Scout Cookie. And if you ask me, Samoas will ALWAYS reign supreme in that department.

In 2022, there are 12 different flavors of Girl Scout cookies, with some new players to the game…

Girl Scout Cookie Calories & Nutrition

Let’s break down each flavor and how it stacks up!

 

 

Adventurefuls™

Adventurfuls Girl Scout Cookie

What is it?: Adventurefuls are soft brownie-inspired cookies with a caramel flavored cream, topped with sea salt. This Girl Scout Cookie is new in 2022, and I sure hope it is here to stay! As a lover of brownies, this cookie sounds like a delicious new addition to the lineup.

Caramel deLites® / Samoas®

Lemon-Ups®

What is it?: If you’re looking for a cookie with a hint of citrus, but you don’t want all of the icing in the Lemonades cookies, then the Lemon-Ups cookies should be your top choice. These crunchy cookies have a hint of lemon baked into them, and each cookie is printed with an inspiring message!

140 Calories, 6g Fat, 20g Carbs (7g Sugar), 1g Protein

 

Peanut Butter Patties® / Tagalongs®

What is it?: After Samoas, Tagalongs are one of my favorite cookies of all time. I mean, is there a better combination out there than peanut butter and chocolate? Tagalongs are crispy cookies that have a layer of peanut butter and are then completely coated in chocolate.

Thin Mints®

What is it?: Thin Mints are not for me, as I do not enjoy mint and chocolate together, but there is no denying their popularity! Crispy chocolate cookies are dipped in a mint chocolate coating, making these every mint chocolate lover’s dream cookie.

Girl Scout council has two separate licensed bakers. Depending on where you are located, you may find slightly different ingredients and nutritional information based on the baker:

Serving Size: 2 Cookies

140 Calories, 7g Fat, 19g Carbs (7g Sugar), 1g Protein

 

Are Girl Scout Cookies Vegan or Gluten-Free?

If you have allergy concerns, there are definitely options for you!

Both the Caramel Chocolate Chip cookies and the Toffee-tastic cookies are gluten-free.

If you are looking for vegan options, there are plenty of options for you:

  • Thin Mints
  • Peanut Butter Patties (not Tagalongs)
  • Lemonades
  • ABC Bakers S’mores (with the chocolate coating)

It’s worth noting that these cookies are made in a shared facility where dairy ingredients are used, but the cookies themselves do not contain any dairy!

 

Which Girl Scout Cookie is the healthiest?

When it comes to the nutrition of Girl Scout Cookies, most of them are very similar.

However, it’s important to note that the serving sizes may vary quite a bit. Since serving sizes are based on weight and not volume, you’ll find them quite different for each cookie.

For example, a serving of Trefoils is 5 cookies, but a serving of Tagalongs is only 2 cookies, so that is something to be mindful of.

And while there is no clear-cut answer to which is the healthiest cookie, as we all have different definitions of what “healthy” truly means, I would say that Trefoils/Shortbread are the overall winner here.

If you’re watching your calories, you’re going to want to focus on eating as much volume as possible while keeping your calories low, and a serving contains twice as many cookies as other options! And, if you were to break down the ingredients, you’d find the shortbread cookies to have a shorter list than most.

Some people prefer less sugar, some low saturated fat, and others may prefer specific ingredients over others. All I can do is provide you with the information to decide for yourself!

At the end of the day, it’s important to remember that these are still cookies! If you want to enjoy some cookies, you should allow yourself to enjoy them without worry.

Remember, there is no reason to EVER feel guilty about eating food you love.

In moderation, no food is unhealthy. Yes, even cookies. Especially cookies as delicious as Girl Scout Cookies!
