When it comes to 鈥90s recipes and foods we were *obsessed* with as kids, no sweet treat is more ubiquitous than the Girl Scout cookie. These wholesome bites of goodness truly offer something for everyone, from S鈥檓ores to Thin Mints to Tagalongs and beyond (they even have vegan options now!). You know what we鈥檙e equally obsessed with now that we鈥檙e adults? WINE. So it鈥檚 only natural that we should combine our two great loves for a delightful food and wine pairing (and maybe a cocktail or two?). We spoke with winemaker Charles Smith to get聽the scoop on the absolute *best* wines to pair with America鈥檚 favorite cookies 鈥 and they鈥檙e all under $20.



1. Domaine des Hospices De Belleville Morgon ($19): S鈥檓ores are one of the newest cookies to be added to the Girl Scout roster. They鈥檙e made with graham cookies, uber-creamy chocolate, and sweet, fluffy marshmallows, so they鈥檇 be perfect for munching on around a campfire. Pair them with something dark and sweet, like Domaine des Hospices De Belleville Morgon, available at your neighborhood Trader Joe鈥檚.

Thin Mints


2. CasaSmith ViNO Rosso ($12): Thin Mints may be the most well-known GSC there is. These thin, minty gems are equally crispy and sweet, making them a truly delicious indulgence. Pair them with bold, deep reds, like a Brunello, Merlot or Pinot Noir. CasaSmith ViNO Rosso is a perfect choice.

Caramel Delites/Samoas


3. Marqu茅s de Riscal Rioja Reserva ($20): These coconut-dusted, super-toasted cookies are packed with caramel and drizzled with chocolate, making them the perfect match for a good Rioja. Pick up the Marqu茅s de Riscal Rioja Reserva at Trader Joe鈥檚.



4. Wines of Substance Cabernet Sauvignon ($17): The name may be a bit nondescript, but anyone who鈥檚 ever had a Tagalong knows EXACTLY what they are. These cookies are comprised of a chocolaty cookie enveloping a layer of gooey peanut butter for the ultimate PB-chocolate combo. Pair them with a Cabernet Sauvignon or a Tawny Port, such as Wines of Substance Cabernet Sauvignon.



5. Charles Smith Wines Eve Chardonnay ($12): There鈥檚 something super sweet and innocent about shortbread, which is one of the reasons Shortbreads are one of our absolute favorite GSCs. You鈥檒l want something crisp, light and refreshing to a pair with these. Charles Smith Wines Eve Chardonnay, available at Trader Joe鈥檚, is a perfect choice.



6. Wines of Substance Sauvignon Blanc ($20): With oatmeal on the outside and creamy butter inside, these are *almost* considered healthy. We鈥檒l take it. Pair your Do-si-dos with a Sauvignon Blanc or a Zinfandel 鈥 our fave is Wines of Substance Sauvignon Blanc.



7. Kung Fu Girl Riesling ($10): If you鈥檙e a big fan of lemon dessert recipes, chances are you spring for Lemonades with GSC season comes around. These are light and delicate, so you鈥檒l want to pair them with a sweeter wine, such as Riesling. Kung Fu Girl Riesling, which is stocked at Trader Joe鈥檚 but also at tons of other grocery stores, is light, refreshing and just sweet enough to pair well with these perennial favorites.

Savannah Smiles


8. CasaSmith ViNO Ros茅 ($12): Packed with zesty lemon flavor and topped with sweet powdered sugar, Savannah Smiles would be perfect with a good ros茅. We personally love CasaSmith ViNO Ros茅.



9. Meimoi Pinot Noir ($20): These shortbread cookies come with a delicious layer of rich fudge on the bottom, so they鈥檙e generally the go-to favorite of chocolate lovers everywhere. As such, they鈥檇 go well with a Pinot Noir, such as Meimoi Pinot Noir.



10. Apothic Red Blend ($11): Love toffee? Then you鈥檙e probably nuts about Toffee-tastics, golden, buttery cookies with tons of crunchy toffee bits. If you鈥檙e springing for these tasty treats, pair them with a Red Blend. We love the uber-popular Apothic ($11).



11. Charles Smith Wines Boom Boom Syrah ($17): Last but certainly not least, Trios boast the ultimate flavor combination: peanut butter, oatmeal, and chocolate chips. And 鈥 bonus 鈥 they鈥檙e also gluten-free! The best pairing for these guys is a Dark Syrah, such as Charles Smith Wines Boom Boom Syrah ($17).
