Try a healthy take on a classic Girl Scout Cookie with these Homemade Vegan Samoas! Made with pantry ingredients but full of flavor, these coconut, caramel, and chocolate cookies taste just like the original.
Are Girl Scout Samoas vegan?
Are Caramel deLites and Samoas the same thing?
Nope, Caramel deLites and Samoas are made at two separate bakeries. While many people think of them as identical treats, there are some subtle differences. Samoas use a darker chocolate and tend to be less crunchy. Caramel deLites have a stronger coconut taste and are slightly less sweet.
Where you live in the United States may determine which cookie is in your market. Both bakeries (ABC Bakers and Little Brownie Bakers) have locations spread throughout the country. The Girl Scout organization is divided up into 112 stateside councils, and each of these councils choose which distributor they’d like to order from.
If you are only familiar with one of these brand names, this explains why!
