Girl Scouts Unveil Radical New Flavor for 2023 Cookie Season

The Girl Scouts are up to something drastic: According to a release from the Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas and Girl Scouts of the USA, they’re adding a new flavor for the 2023 season that’s a spinoff from their Thin Mints cookie.

Called the Raspberry Rally, it’s a thin, crispy cookie that looks and acts like a Thin Mint, with the same chocolatey coating. But instead of a minty center, it’s infused with raspberry flavor. Panting.

They call her a sister to the Thin Mint, but everyone knows that the Thin Mint is an only child and has no siblings.

The new raspberry-flavored cookie will be available to consumers nationwide during the 2023 Girl Scout Cookie season, alongside favorites like Thin Mints and Samoas. But it will be available online only, the first line of Girl Scout cookies to be sold in this way, with the idea that it will improve Girl Scout’s e-commerce sales and entrepreneurial skills.

It will also be available in limited quantities, so expect frenetic online ordering once the season begins.

The release recounts the myriad benefits of the Girl Scouts cookie program, not that anyone needs any persuasion, I mean all you have to say is the cookies, but here goes:

  • One hundred percent of proceeds from in-person and online cookie orders directly benefit local councils and troops.
  • Girl Scouts learn leadership, problem solving and community building through the Girl Scout Cookie program, resulting in invaluable experience that cultivates an innovative entrepreneurial spirit.
  • The Girl Scout Cookie program encourages girls to take risks, think outside the box, and be confident in their own abilities.

The program encompasses understanding of business, money management and entrepreneurship. Cookie Business badges range from setting goals, learning effective in-person and online sales pitches, using market research, creating business plans, and implementing implementation of digital marketing campaigns.

There’s also the fact that it’s just fun to get something that’s not readily available 365 days a year.

This isn’t the first new flavor the Girl Scouts have introduced. Who could forget Adventurefuls, the brownie-inspired cookie with crème caramel and sea salt they introduced for the 2022 season? Still available, by the way.

“The Raspberry Rally is the perfect addition to our delicious line of Girl Scout Cookies,” said Jennifer Bartkowski, CEO of Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas. “When you buy a box of Girl Scout Cookies, you’re fueling girls’ learning and development through incredible leadership development programs. All proceeds stay local and support troops in your community with essential funds to give opportunities and adventures unique to their daughters.”

While Girl Scout Cookies will be available for online purchases only beginning in December, the official start of cookie season in Central Texas is January 18, 2023. Visit www.girlscoutcookies.org to sign up and get notified as soon as that Raspberry Rally and other Girl Scout cookies are on sale.
