Note, because the Girl Scouts contract with two different bakeries, there are two versions of this cookie, and only one is vegan. Look for the chocolate-covered ones made by ABC Bakers. It’s a sweet and crunchy graham cracker cookie dipped in icing and drenched in chocolate.
Thanks-A-Lots are shortbread cookies that have been partially dipped in chocolate! Thin Mints and Thanks-A-Lots were the FIRST two vegan cookies offered by the Girl Scouts. The ingredients in these cookies vary depending on location, so check the box to make sure they’re made by ABC Bakers before you buy.

What’s the difference between Samoas and Caramel deLites?
Caramel deLites (ABC) … Samoas are the more flavorful of the two, using a dark chocolate coating and a heavy caramel layer along with more toasted coconut. While Samoas put most of the emphasis on the toppings, Caramel deLites use them as a complement for the cookie.
The five vegan Girl Scout Cookies are: Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Patties (from ABC Bakers), Lemonades, Thanks-A-Lot, and S’mores (the chocolate-dipped kind, not the sandwich cookie).
Are lemonades vegan?
Lemonade, which is fresh and made with sugar, is usually considered a vegan drink. The lemonade you buy from stores sometimes might contain honey, which is a problem for vegans.
Absolutely not. The price increase is a council decision and has no bearing on the actual product. It’s also important to note that, although the packaging itself has recently become smaller, as a way to address environmental concerns and cut down on waste, the number of cookies has not changed.
