Girl Scout Tagalongs/peanut butter patties

Oreos, Double Stuf
Pepperidge Farm Milanos, milk chocolate
Girl Scout Thin Mints
This is rouuuuuugh, you guys! Basically, I'm expecting a major fight between Thin Mints, Tagalongs, and Milanos. However, in the end, I'm preeeeetty certain Thin Mints will win out. There might be a slight muscling in by the Dub Stufs, but I don't think they'll get far.
Meanwhile, here's my editorial remark: Hey, Oreo -- what's with the missing "F"? You too cool to spell correctly? Never understood that. ----Stephanie V.W. Lucianovic

...I think it was even spelled "Dubble Stuf" at one point. There's nothing less cute than the craven attempts of marketing departments to be "kidsy" with childlike spellings and backwards letters.
...Anyway. I swear on a shelf of Bibles that we randomized the semifinalists. Neither of us is evil enough to conceptualize a flight so thoroughly wretched that Sophie herself would look at the "choice" and be like, "Hard pass. -- and even if we were, why would we do it to ourselves? This is impossible on two fronts: to vote, and to predict.
But vote I must, I suppose, and let's have some real talk here: I'm-a vote for Thin Mints, and then I'm-a open a new browser and vote for Tagalongs. And then I'm-a vote for Tagalongs again from my phone probably? I'm only human.
What you'll do is another matter, and I suspect it's something similar as far as gaming the decision itself. We can likely eliminate Milani, Tagalongs, and Trefoils from the conversation, but any of the other three could come through. I'm betting Thin Mints, with a strong rally by Double Stuf. -- Sarah D.
