Taste test: Nestle has done the world a great favor by offering the great taste of Girl Scout cookies in candy bar form, and even better, you can get these in ordinary stores without having to place your order weeks in advance from Girl Scouts (or more accurately, their parents) and then have nothing but cookies on your mind until they arrive.
The wrapper contained two smallish candy bars, arranged end-to-end, with a dark chocolate exterior and some bits of crisp rice nearly jutting out of the top surface. The bar's inside contained multiple layers of stuff — apparently alternating between cookie wafers and mint chocolate crème — but really, they were all the same color (slightly darker than the exterior chocolate), so I couldn't actually see the layers. There was a soft crunch and a very nice taste, similar to the Thin Mints cookies, but a bit creamier. Nothing outstanding here as candy bars go, but they did duplicate the Thin Mints taste fairly closely. Pretty good.
