Thin Mint crunch cupcake comes to Georgetown Cupcake in March! Plus our take on mint cookies and creme, chocolate², pumpkin spicea nd banana chocolate

I stopped by Georgetown Cupcake in SoHo on Saturday with a friend and co-owner Sophie LaMontagne told me that Thin Mint Crunch is coming back in March, so Thursday I plan to be there early to try it. I also told her that I couldn't wait on the extremely long line when I was in Washington, DC last year and she reminded me you can order ahead at georgetowncupcake.com and skip the line! Also, the other day I was there on a weekdayand they told me that their free cupcake specials via GTownCupcake on Twitter (and Facebook, each day they announce a special flavor they're giving away in a limited quantity for free) tend to last until around 1 pm on weekdays. Obviously, the earlier you arrive, the better your chance for a freebie, but a heads up.

Below is a review and photo from blogger Never Turn Down a Cupcake:

This Girl Scout cookie-based flavor is a chocolate cake with crushed Thin Mint cookies baked inside, topped with a chocolate ganache and decorated with fondant Girl Scout decorations.

Even though I'm not a fan of mint chocolate, this was really rich and tasted mostly of chocolate which I liked, haha. The little bits of cookie inside were interesting and added a nice texture to both the cake and the frosting.
And these are the cupcakes we tried: the mint cookies & creme, for sale on Saturdays, which is so so good in my and my friend's opinion (it tastes like mint chocolate chip ice cream!) and the chocolate², which is "Valrhona chocolate cupcake with a whipped Callebaut chocolate frosting topped with a fondant flower," was rich and wonderful. I ate half of it and felt like I'd gotten more than my share of very rich, thick chocolate frosting. I recommend them both!





And while I'm catching up on my blogging, I also tried pumpkin spice and banana chocolate. Both were very good. The pumpkin spice's official description is "Pumpkin spice cupcake with a maple-infused cream cheese frosting topped with a fondant maple leaf" and I can tell you that the maple frosting was unique and very good. I wasn't sure if I'd like it but it had this kick to it that made it amazing. The banana frosting was good too, though I liked the pumpkin spice better.
