[b]Anyone have suggestion for locating these in deep-South Georgia? I cannot get these locally & even the Publix here cannot help me (says distributor told him no, which I'm not inclined to believe).
Anyone in Tallahassee, Florida get Dare cookies there?
Jacksonville, Florida?
Desperate for the Coconut Cremes. And the maple (especially this time of year).

I would be happy to send you some from here in Ohio. E-mail me if you want me to. I think they only cost $3.99 a bag at Giant Eagle.

My son is PN and TNA and does fine with the cookies.

How sweet of you! Thank you for the offer. I shall possibly take you up on this should I strike out here or in Florida or become completely desperate! If I make myself wait, when we go to Reno at end of year, I should be able to get them there. . . unless my Mom has already bought & eaten them all with my Dad's help! LOL!
Our military commissary in Del Rio (Laughlin AFB) used to get Dare cookies at Christmas.
Anyone else military who may have seen these in a Commissary?
To me, those Dare Coconut Cremes are the addictive kind of cookie where I would sit with the whole bag & be a complete pig. Kind of like the original (the ones where cookie was golden color, not dark brown) Girl Scout Thin Mints from 1970's.
Drooling.

Has anyone spotted these anywhere in the Chicago South Suburbs or Northwest Indiana?

Thanks to everyone on all the responses! I might go and buy the store out! (Although I'll have to make room- already stocked up on Halloween candy that is PA/TNA safe- love that you can find brands in individual packages around this time!)

[b] Do you have HEB grocery stores in Houston area? I was always able to get these at HEB & HEB Central Market in San Antonio.

No way!! I've looked at HEB and Central Market in our town, but I'll try in Houston Proper. And SA is only 3 hours away. If it comes to that, I'll email you for specific stores, okay?
I did email the company yesterday and asked for places in Houston or Dallas. I'd be happy to drive to Dallas for these cookies. They're fabulous. I love the lemon cremes and the vanillas. DS' faves are the strawberry and chocolates. I like maples, too, but they're very, very sweet!
Oh EB--I have a post for you in the vacation thread--if you indeed bleed purple. Riff Ram Bah Zoo, as they say.

Okay, before you mentioned SA, I thought, "Well, Del Rio isn't [i]that far[/i]." [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
I thought I was the only one who remembered those thin mints. My husband thinks I'm crazy--swears they always were dark. [i]He's[/i] the crazy one.

Here in Phx. I buy them at AJs fine foods and my friend has purchased them in bulk at Costco in north phx. I haven't found them at my Costco at 27th and Yorkshire yet. They are so yummy!

But you would need military ID AND perfect luck to get to Del Rio/Laughlin AFB Commissary on the very few days they had the cookies. I tell you, they were gone soooooo fast!
As to the GS Thin Mints. After eating 10 cookies the "standard" way, I used to lick/suck off all the thin mint coating & then dunk the leftover cookie part in milk. Because, of course, the coated cookies couldn't absorb much milk!
Feel free to e-mail me about Dare cookies in San Antonio.
~Elizabeth,
Smiling about memories of younger cousin & I -- ages 10 & 12 -- spending night in my parents' basement bedroom & sneaking to mom's basement freezer & eating entire sleeves . . . no, BOXES . . . of Thin Mints in one night. Cousin & I still talk & laugh about this secret. We have told no one else in our family!
