Whether you grew up ordering Samoas or Carmel deLites, you’ve likely been told you were eating the same cookie. But for all their similarities, the two fan favorites actually have a few key differences.

The website Central Track did a side-by-side comparison of the cookies, which come from two different bakeries, and found there are actually some significant differences.

For example, Samoas have dark chocolate stripes and more coconut flakes than their Carmel deLite counterparts.
