The Most Delicious Cookies in Chile

Ok, the title is a lie. These are probably not the most delicious cookies. Perhaps they are the most delicious store-bought cookies. In any case, they are heavenly.

Remember Girl Scout cookies? My sister was a girl scout when she was little, and my mom was her troop leader. March was my favorite time of year because that’s when it was cookie time! Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Patties, Caramel Delites…yum!

Even though Girl Scouts do exist here in Chile, they don’t sell cookies. I’ve seen them selling Super 8’s (a popular candy bar) and earrings on the street. One time I asked them if they sold cookies. They said no.

The other day on a whim, I bought some Oreos at the grocery store. They were on sale for $1990 (around $4.00…still expensive for store-bought cookies) but I was jonesing for something sweet so I bought them.

Hello, heaven

My friends, these cookies taste almost EXACTLY like Thin Mints! Except, and I’m going out on a limb here, they might even be BETTER. Why? Take a look:

See that minty filling? Scrumptious.

Thin mints don’t have that creamy, minty filling. These babies do. It gives it an extra something that is so, so good.

So if you’re looking for a replacement for Thin Mints, check out these Oreo Fudge Creams. No, I was not paid to write this review, although I should have been. You’re welcome, Nabisco.

  1. I did a google search for Valparaiso de mi amor and your post from May was in the top three. Hah! Congrats.

    I wish I had those cookies. I don’t even know if I’ve seen them here!

  2. Dear Abby,
    How am I going to maintain my (already ample) figure if you keep introducing me to new foods?! Yes, I found the Oreo Chocolate Mint cookies at Lider and they are as advertised…..deeeeelish!!

    • Haha! Aren’t they delicious? I have to admit, I went out and bought a second package…I’m doing better about not scarfing them down all at once though. They are so yummy!
