You need a Girl Scout cookie-inspired doughnut from Pandamonium

For the rest of the month, Pandamonium Doughnuts has Girl Scout cookie-inspired doughnuts, and I need to tell you that they are freaking amazing. On Saturday, I tried my two favorite Girl Scout cookie flavors as doughnuts: Tagalongs and Samoa.

The Tagalongs-inspired doughnut was a yeast doughnut cut into the shape of the Girl Scout trefoil, dipped in chocolate glaze, topped with chopped up Girl Scout Tagalongs cookies, and drizzled with a peanut butter sauce. The crumble topping was so good with a sweet cookie taste and crushed, salty peanut butter pieces. The doughnut looked like a chocolate doughnut, but the peanut butter flavor dominated with a bold, nutty deliciousness. If you like the peanut butter patty Girl Scout cookie (or you like peanut butter-chocolate sweets), you will die for this.

The best Girl Scout cookie is the Samoa. Go ahead and at me if you disagree. The yeast doughnut was dipped in a Pandamonium-made caramel glaze and topped with toasted coconut and chocolate drizzle. The coconut was truly toasted, and the coconut threads were crunchy, not soft at all. A thick caramel glaze covered the pillowy yeast donut, and the chocolate glaze paired with the caramel and coconut. Honestly (and controversially), I thought the doughnut was even better than my favorite cookie. If you like the Girl Scout Samoa cookie, get yourself to Pandamonium for one of these doughnuts right away.

Pre-order your doughnuts here. A portion of proceeds from each purchase of a Girl Scout cookie-inspired doughnut will be donated to Girl Scouts of Central Illinois. The doughnuts will only be sold for the next two weeks as a March special.
