It every sweet tooth's favorite time of the year! Girl Scouts across the country are new selling their famous cookies at grocery stores. We know you're going to pick up a box or two, so why not take your snacking to the next level? The wine experts at Vivino paired Girl Scout Cookies with 12 different wine flavor profiles. 

 

Here's a guide to perfectly pairing Girl Scout Cookies with wine: 

 

1. Thin Mints® and Brunello

The chocolate covered, mint cookies are good match with Brunello, try a 2010 edition. 

2. Caramel deLites® /Samoas® and Rioja

Pair your carmel and toasted coconut-covered cookies with an aged Rioja. 

3. Peanut Butter Patties® /Tagalongs® and Amarone

Peanut butter heaven needs heavenly wine. 

4. Trefoils® and German Riesling

The shortbread cookies pair great with a German Riesling.

5. Do-Si-Dos® and a California Zinfandel

This duo will taste like a yummy PB & J sandwich. 

6. Cranberry Citrus Crisps and New Zealand Pinot Noir

The citrus cookie pairs with the "straight-forward nature" taste of a New Zealand Pinot Noir

7. Lemonades™ and Italian Roero Arneis

The lemon-iced shortbread cookies make a perfect match with an Italian Roero Arneis, which has a bright, light and fruity taste. 

8. Rah-Rah Raisins™ and Bordeaux

Rah-Rah Raisins™ are delicious oatmeal cookies with raisins and Greek-yogurt chucks. This cookie calls for a full-bodied left bank Bordeaux.
