Thin Mints Girl Scout cookies are mint-flavored chocolate cookies with a chocolate coating. Other varieties of cookies include Cranberry Citrus Crisps, Savannah Smiles and Trios. Cranberry Citrus Crisps are made from whole-grain flour with dried cranberries and citrus flavor. Savannah Smiles are lemon-flavored shortbread cookies dusted with powdered sugar. Trios are the Girl Scouts' only gluten-free cookie variety, made with oats, peanut butter and eggs rather than wheat flour.

There are two different bakers in the United States that produce Girl Scout cookies. Therefore, some varieties of cookies have two different names because the cookie recipe varies slightly between the two bakeries. For example, Caramel deLites are also called Samoas, Peanut Butter Patties are also called Tagalongs, and Peanut Butter Sandwich cookies are also called Do-si-dos.

Caramel deLites and Samoas are vanilla cookies covered in caramel, shredded coconut and chocolate. Peanut Butter Patties and Tagalongs are cookies layered with peanut butter and dipped in a chocolate coating. Peanut Butter Sandwich cookies and Do-si-dos are oatmeal cookies with a layer of peanut butter in the center.
