I wasn't happy about it because I don't have an affinity for Samoas, I like Carmel deLites. I chalked it up to the Girl Scouts deciding they they would just change the name.
And then....a package came in the mail. A care package from my mother-in-law arrived from Wisconsin last week and the Springtime debate for the last six years (the one in my head, I guess) has been settled. It must be a regional thing.
Please forge the terrible picture, I was too excited for the taste test, I didn't even have time to focus my camera!
Check it out. They even look different. My husband and I did a taste test, naturally, and found that the Samoas are a little more coconut-y and toasted. While the Carmel deLites have way more carmel.
Now you know.
Carmel deLites or Samoas? What's your pick?
