Find the Perfect Girl Scout Cookie for Your Zodiac Sign
Tempted by chocolate-enrobed peanut-butter patties and caramely, coconut-topped delights, we are powerless to choose just one box of Girl Scout cookies. What does help, though, is leaving the decision up to the stars. Here's just the right cookie, tailored to your zodiac sign, to hit your unique sweet spots.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18): You're a deep, logical thinker who loves to help others, so you appreciate foods that are complex in flavor yet accessible enough to appeal to a wide range of tastes. Brit + Co Pick: Tangy, lightly iced Lemonades are just the type of simple and sophisticated cookie you'd set out to have an intellectual conversation with friends.
Pisces (February 19-March 20): Your gentle, accepting personality makes others feel at ease. If you were a food, you'd be one that everyone could agree is delicious and comforting. Brit + Co Pick: Even diehard Samoa lovers and faithful Thin Mint fans can acknowledge that buttery Trefoils are a treat for the palate. These sweet shortbread cookies bring people together, just like you.
Aries (March 21-April 19): Passionate and independent, you prefer to do everything 100 percent. That means you like your salads completely clean and your weekend meals decidedly indulgent. Brit + Co Pick: Your match? Rich and silky Tagalongs, covered in peanut butter and milk chocolate, turn the volume all the way up.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): You're all about luxury and self care, so you like your meals to make you feel good inside and out. Brit + Co Pick: Reach for a box of Toffee-tastics when you're craving something sweet. The buttery, toffee-flecked cookies would be your ideal accompaniment during a long soak in the tub.
Gemini (May 21-June 20): Emotionally intelligent, you often display one layer of your personality to the outside world and another, deeper layer to those you hold dearest. Brit + Co Pick: Like a chocolate-veiled Girl Scout S'more cookie, you're incredibly appealing on the surface, but you have even more to offer on the inside. In the case of the cookie, vanilla icing and crisp graham cracker.
Cancer (June 21-July 22): You'd much rather hang with an intimate group of friends than engage in small talk at a party. You like your food to have serious substance, just how you like your conversations. Brit + Co Pick: Similar to a crunchy, oatmeal-y, Do-Si-Do sandwich cookie stuffed with a peanut-buttery filling, you're a little guarded on the outside but are a generous, loving softie on the inside.
Leo (July 23-August 22): Fearless, friendly, and a natural leader, you're admired and respected by everyone in your circle. Brit + Co Pick: The Samoa, covered in caramel and coconut, drizzled with chocolate, and beloved by nearly all, is your match.
Virgo (August 23-September 22): You're smart, sophisticated, and secure in your position in life, and you're drawn to foods that are elegant in presentation and refined in taste. Brit + Co Pick: Tastefully smooth and pepperminty Thin Mints, the chicest of Girl Scout cookies, are your kind of dessert.
Libra (September 23-October 22): As someone who values kindness and quality time with friends, you crave colorful, brightly flavored foods that make you feel cheerful. Brit + Co Pick: It's only fitting that your spirit cookie should be called Savannah Smiles. These lemony, sugar-dusted bites complement your positive personality.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21): Authentic, emotional, and enthusiastic, you like foods that pack bold flavors and contrasting textures into every bite. Brit + Co Pick: The crunchy graham cracker cookies, creamy chocolate, and sticky marshmallow in Little Brownie Bakers Girl Scout S'mores will reel you in for taste after taste.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): You're just as adventurous at the dinner table as you are in everyday life, which means you love to try new and exciting foods. Brit + Co Pick: What better cookie for you than Girl Scouts' newest variety, Caramel Chocolate Chip? The sweet and lightly salted gluten-free cookie represents new territory for Girl Scouts, and that gets you mighty interested.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19): Loyal, orderly, and hardworking, you'd take a proper, polished meal over takeout any day. Brit + Co Pick: You deserve a cookie that's as delightfully well mannered as you are, such as the fudge-bottomed shortbread Thanks-A-Lot cookies.
