Here is what Lifehacker.com has to say about them:

The Grasshoppers are very similar to Thin Mints, but use milk chocolate instead of dark chocolate. This gives them a slightly sweeter, more chocolatey taste, but they're pretty comparable, and would certainly keep you from going through withdrawal of the crack-like Thin Mints.

The Coconut Dreams also use milk chocolate instead of the usual dark, though it's a bit harder to taste the difference than it is with the Thin Mints. I did notice that there is a slight difference in texture: the Coconut Dreams are a bit crunchier, while the Samoas are a bit chewier. The caramel-to-cookie to ratio just seems a bit higher on the Samoas. That said, the two are probably the most similar cookies we found in the taste test, and most people would probably have a hard time telling them apart.

We couldn't try the Peanut Butter Filled cookies, but after a bit of research, it seems they're the most distant from their Girl Scout counterparts, Tagalongs. While Tagalongs use a white cookie in the center (topped with peanut butter and chocolate), the Keebler cookie uses a chocolate cookie on the inside instead. This is likely to produce a very different tasting cookie, though they might suffice if you're hankering for some Tagalongs in the summer.

Thank you for posting this !! Wow...I didn't know ANY of this !!! xo
