BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The 2023 Girl Scouts Louisiana East cookie season is set to get underway on Friday, Jan. 20, with at least one new flavor going on sale.

“We are excited for the 2023 cookie season to be our first normal season since the start of the pandemic,” said Rebecca Pennington, CEO of Girl Scouts Louisiana East. “As always, the southeast Louisiana community continues to support our Girl Scouts year over year, and we are excited for the opportunities our Girl Scouts will have during this program in 2023.”

Girl Scouts officials said the Raspberry Rally cookie will join other iconic flavors such as Thin Mints, Caramel deLites, and Peanut Butter Patties. The cookie is a thin and crispy cookie that is infused with raspberry flavor and dipped in the same chocolate coating used to create Thin Mints.

The Raspberry Rally cookie is expected to be sold exclusively online. The goal of selling the Raspberry Rally cookie online is to enhance girls’ e-commerce sales and entrepreneurial skills, according to Girl Scouts officials.

Online sales will take place through the Girl Scouts’ Smart Cookie online platform. Starting on Friday, February 17, customers can enter their zip code to purchase cookies through the online platform. Click here for more details.
