Girl Scout vs The Other Guy

By The Campus Eye staff

 

The Campus Eye staff would like to send out a big THANK YOU to those that participated in our ultimate cookie taste test. We had a lot of fun setting it up and eating the cookies!

 

The results were a bit surprising, with Wal Mart’s Great Value brand bring home the most votes in 2 out of the 3 cookie variety’s.

The Winner Is…

Wal Mart – Great Value

Wal Mart – Great Value won this round as well with 26 votes in a very close battle. Girl Scout fell 3 shy with 23. This was perhaps the most surprising as the two variety’s had a noticeable difference. The Wal Mart – Great Value cookie had a chocolate cookie base while the Girl Scout cookie had a shortbread base.
