lemon crush

When it comes to Girl Scout cookies, I’ve always been a Tagalong fan, myself (also known as Peanut Butter Patties, depending on where you live). Until, that is, I recently laid eyes on these beauties.

That there is a Lemonade cookie. It looks simple enough, right? Oh, but it’s so much more than just a lemon sugar cookie. The bottom is iced with a sweet and tangy lemon icing, and it is delightful. I am in love.

It’s funny — I’ve never been a huge fan of actual lemonade drinks, but when it comes to dessert, lemon-flavored sweets are the only ones that may have a chance of beating out those of the chocolate variety. Our wedding cake is a prime example of my love for all lemony desserts.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to find a Girl Scout who can sell me enough cookies to get me through the year until next cookie season. Tell me again why they don’t sell these things year-round?


  1. Oooh, like Iced Lemon Pound Cake from Starbucks. I avoided it for years because of my dislike of lemonade. But I gave it a shot one day and I’m addicted. Lordy, I could really go for a Tagalong right now. I have yet to find a Girl Scout this year. Where are they hiding?!?!?

  2. @Melissa, I got a box at Market East in Philly last week! I was there on a weeknight and there was a whole table set up. If you’re in the area, definitely head over :) (And yes, actual lemonade is SO different than yummy lemon desserts!)

  3. Ooh! I will have to try them. I’ve always liked the do-si-dos and samoas but lately have been loving the citrusy stuff in lieu of peanut butter and chocolate. Thanks for the tip!

  4. I had these when visiting my sister in Kansas and was looking forward to purchasing some when I got back home. Imagine my distress when learning they do not sell this particular cookie in Colorado!!! -very bummed
