I didn’t know it at the time, but my life forever changed on August 18, 2021. That’s the day I learned about the Girl Scouts Adventurefuls, an original brownie-inspired cookie. Why was that so important? Because those wondrous snacks did the unimaginable and replaced Thin Mints as my all-time favorite favorite Girl Scouts cookie. That’s why I’m making note of today’s date just in case it ends up being as important. Because in 2023 the Girl Scouts are adding adding another option to its lineup, and it’s inspired by my old favorite. Raspberry Rally is just like a Thin Mint, but with a fruity flavor instead.
Like white smoke from the Vatican, only with far greater implications, the Girl Scouts have announced their official new 2023 cookie. The group says the thin, crispy Raspberry Rally is a “sister” cookie of Thin Mints. The only difference is instead of mint flavor inside the chocolate-coated cookie has raspberry.
There will only be one place to grab them, though. You’ll have to grab Boxes of Raspberry Rally exclusively online with direct shipment to you. You’ll still need to find a scout to place your order. That way proceeds will still go to your favorite member and her group. Why the extra step? The organization says this method will enhance “girls’ e-commerce sales and entrepreneurial skills.”
What it won’t do is help us wait to try them. As of this writing we’re still more than 149 days away from actually eating any. In the meantime, if you want to know the latest on Raspberry Rallys you can sign up for updates at the Girl Scouts official site. But also jot down the date you read this post, too. If Raspberry Rallys are as good as I hope, this will be a day we all want to remember.
