Last year, Casey and I did Girl Scout and cannabis pairing for Willamette Week. Below are our original notes.

Samoas Pairing Notes
Hindu Kush was chosen for its tasty and stinky combination of sweet, nutty and earthy flavors. It made sense that the toasted coconut in the cookie would pair well because it takes on the flavor of other foods well.
Major terpenes: Caryophyllene, Pinene, Humulene

Chocolate Chunk was brought on board for its strong and sweet aroma of chocolate. The hope was to enhance the chocolate taste in the cookie by adding more sweet and bitter flavors.
Major terpenes: Myrcene, Linalool, Limonene

Tagalongs Pairing Notes
When searching for strains to combine with this cookie, we focused our attention on varieties with a combination of sweet, nutty and chocolate notes — like Trainwreck. The most prominent taste in Train Wreck is it’s nuttiness as well as a sweet, almost lemon flavor. We wanted to mellow out the peanut butter and turn the sweetness in the chocolate. Major terpenes: Limonene, Myrcene, Caryophyllene

The sweet and nutty flavors in OG Kush are what stuck out in the selection process because the aim of pairing these aromas and tastes was to great a synergy of flavors. Think of it of the weaving of flavors to create more complex ones. Doubling up on the sweetness along take its potency to a deeper level.
Major terpenes: Limonene, Caryophyllene, Myrcene

do-si-dos Pairing Notes<

Jack Flash has a distinct sweet and sour flavor profile that we felt would mellow the richness in the peanut butter. At the same time, it made sense that spectrum of sugary tastes would flow together.
Major terpenes: Pinene, Limonene, Humulene

Burmese Kush was chosen for its sweet and nutty elements. The main purpose of which was to add depth to the existing flavors in the cookies.
Major terpenes: Caryophyllene, Linalool, Myrcene

Thin Mint Pairing Notes

We choose Black Betty because we were looking to pair the sweet dark chocolate and tart cherry flavor notes with the chocolate in the cookie. The plan was to pump up the chocolate and balance out the strength of the mint.
Major terpenes: Humulene, Limonene, Linalool

The God Bud is known to have a sweet aroma and taste, which made it a prime candidate to mix with the chocolate and mint. The goal here was to enhance sweetness in both elements.
Major terpenes: Myrcene, Humulene, Limonene

toffee-tastic Pairing Notes

White Widow was chosen because of its sweet, earthy and pungent aroma. It was hard coming up with strains that had anything relates to caramel as far as tastes and smells go. This pairing was focused on finding a strain that complemented the cookie like a glass of ice cold milk.
Major terpenes: Linalool, Pinene, Myrcene

We chose Chocolate Cream because of the moment the smell reaches the nostrils. The creamy chocolate and deep richness is enough to put a smile on anyone’s face. The hope was to add a layer of yummy goodness to the bland gluten-free option. At the same time it made sense to attempt to balance out the sweetness of the toffee and dough.
Major terpenes: Myrcene, Linalool, Limonene
