Hmm. Pillsbury used the generic “caramel & coconut” instead of Caramel deLites or Samoas. Interesting. (Spotted by John W at Walmart.)

  1. Turns out Thin Mints is the only cookie name trademark owned by Girls Scouts of the USA. The rest of the names are owned by one of the 2 bakeries who make the cookies. So Girl Scouts and/or Pillsbury would actually have to license the Caramel deLite or Somoa name from the bakery.

    Also the mix seems to be lacking the chocolate stripe of the traditional cookie.
