In California, daylight saving time has come—the sun is shining and smiling earlier, the flowers are blooming as bees fly around merrily… Is it spring time? Who knows? But it is GIRL SCOUT COOKIE TIME! Boxes and boxes of Thin Mints and Samoas® are now yours!
You’ll be happily greeted by Girl Scouts as you enter your local grocery store. You’ll pretend that you’re not still going to buy Oreos and bags of chips, to avoid those extra calories, but who are you fooling? Then, you’ll walk down the wine aisle and realize….yeah, that’s right….WINE AND COOKIES.
You’ll need to be ready for that! So, we’ve got some Girl Scout Cookies and wine pairings, fit for your oh-so-demure and sophisticated palette:
- Savannah Smiles or Lemonades & Chardonnay. Chardonnay is a popular choice for lemon cookies, so why wouldn’t it work perfectly with these two choices? Let the lemon and oak flavors take you to an earthly, outdoorsy, afternoon nap (in the comfort of your own home, of course.)
- Tagalongs/Peanut Butter Patties & Amontillado or Oloroso Sherry. Whatever you happen to call those peanut butter cookies sent from the gods themselves, they’ll go well with these two types of sherry. Sherry is said to bring out the nutty flavors, so get ready for peanut butter bliss.
- Samoas/Caramel deLites & Moscato d’Asti or Demi-Sec Chardonnay. These wines sound fancy and you’ll feel just as fancy when the sweet caramel goodness of these cookies (whatever they’re called in your area) is propelled by these sweet, smooth pairings. You might want to call your dentist after this one.
- Thin Mints and Syrah Port. The minty goodness combined with a eucalyptus touch will leave your mouth feeling like Niagara Falls. Sounds refreshing!
That’s a lot of wine you should buy to keep up with your cookie cravings. If there’s not enough room in your fridge, don’t worry about it! STORBOX has your back! STORBOX offers the Wine Grotto, ready to hold all your wines for whenever you need them.
The units are temperature-controlled so you can be sure that the wine will be ripe when you get to it. Just try not to finish the Girl Scout cookies on the way there, okay? You can even host wine-tasting clubs there. Maybe you can invite Girl Scout Moms for that extra cookie hook-up!
Give STORBOX a call at (626) 407-3439 for pricing, or check out the Wine Grotto website! Happy tasting! We better be invited to at least one of them…
