Woman Scout Cookie season is properly underway and, this yr, the group has launched a brand new taste: Raspberry Rally, a vegan cookie that is much like the beloved Skinny Mint, however with a pink raspberry middle.
The cookie formally went on sale on Monday, and Woman Scout councils in lots of areas are already reporting they’re bought out.
“By no means in 1,000,000 years did I feel that it might promote out as shortly because it did,” Judi Startzman, advertising and marketing officer for Woman Scouts Western Oklahoma, told the Oklahoman.
“That is one more instance of what ladies study from taking part within the cookie program,” Startzman added. “Generally issues do not go precisely as deliberate and it’s a must to learn to pivot.”
A few of the $5 packing containers are being auctioned off on eBay for as a lot as $180, although the Woman Scouts strongly discourages the unlawful resale of its cookies.

What do Raspberry Rally cookies style like?
Two totally different bakeries are licensed to fabricate Woman Scout Cookies — ABC Bakers and Little Brownie Bakers.
There’s some variation in components and preparation, so I attempted Raspberry Rally cookies from each.
The cookies from ABC Bakers might simply be mistaken for Skinny Mints, as they’ve the identical chocolate-coated look. They’re delicate to the chunk, with only a little bit of crunch and a raspberry taste that actually stands out.
Little Brownie Bakers’ model smells extra like raspberry, although the flavour is not as overpowering if you style it. The cookie has a much less synthetic style and a texture that jogged my memory of a softer shortbread cookie.
