The ever-cool Vivino recently released an article pairing Girl Scout cookies and wine. Yum! Kosher wine consumers obviously need (um, want) this, too. After all, Girl Scout cookies first received an Orthodox Union (OU) kosher certification in 1995, according to an article published last year by Tablet. Eleven years later, it is time they get their kosher wine companions, too:
Thin mints are round and delicious crispy chocolate wafers dipped in a mint chocolate coating. These pair well with Cantina Gabriele Sangiovese, famous for its deep ruby red color. The Sangiovese is a full-bodied wine with fine, silky tannins and a strong cherry aroma.
Caramel and toasted coconut-covered cookies, Samoas are chocolatey rounds of heaven. These pair well with Ramon Cardova Garnacha, best described as a luxurious wine. Made in Spain and produced from Garnacha grapes, Ramon Cardova Garnacha is a wine of rare complexity, with a unique character and lingering finish.
Peanut Butter Patties®/ Tagalongs®
A mouth-watering layer of peanut butter with a rich chocolate coating. These cookies take the Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup to a whole new level. They pair well with the Cantina Gabriele Pinot Grigio, an aromatic wine with tropical fruit flavors.
This is a cookie with nostalgia – shortbread cookies. These pair well with Abarbanel Old Vines Riesling, sourced from old vines grown at the foot of the Vosges Mountains. Long considered one of the world’s best terroirs for Riesling, this wine is packed with plenty of perfume and floral notes to delight the nose and infused with tons of tang, spices, herbal and citrus notes to tantalize the tongue.
Another shortbread cookie, but this one embossed with “Thank You” (in English, French, Chinese, Swahili or Spanish), their fudge bottoms turn this basic cookie into a sensation. Thanks-A-Lot pair best with Gush Etzion Spring River Syrah-Mourvedre, famous for its medium body and soft tannins. With flavors of mature fruit and spices, it’s a well-balanced wine.
Do-si-dos®/Peanut Butter Sandwich
These sandwich cookies are made of crisp and crunchy oatmeal on the outside and creamy peanut butter on the inside. Pair these with Baron Herzog White Zinfandel, with its strawberry and cotton candy aromas. The wine’s crisp texture, bright color, and distinctively fresh taste will wash these cookies down like fruit punch washes down a peanut butter sandwich.
Another shortbread sensation, with its tangy lemonade icing, these cookies pair best with Fizee White, a delicious, young, white, sweet wine from Italy.
