East Texans put Girl Scout and Walmart cookies to taste test

By Courtney Lane - bio | email

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - It's a cookie competition that is all the buzz right now. We told you how Walmart has come out with a cheaper alternative to the Girl Scouts' Thin Mint cookies. Some girls and their parents are worried it might crumble their fundraising efforts.

Many of you sounded off...

"I still plan to support the Girl Scouts," Eric wrote to us. "They're a better cause than filling the pockets of the corporate people running the country into the ground."

But Lacy said she had to stop buying Girl Scout cookies because "they went up on their prices."

Well, we wanted to know how the cookies would stand-up side by side. So we let East Texans taste for themselves. Click on the video on the upper right-hand side of this page to see which cookie ended up in first place.
