Girl Scouts' brand new Raspberry Rally cookie

"Meet Raspberry Rally™, the thin, crispy cookie infused with raspberry flavor and dipped in chocolaty coating*. They may look like Thin Mints’® sister, but these cookies have a delicious taste that’s all their own. They're sure to become a new favorite."


When I originally was gifted the box of cookies, I thought it wasn't going to be equally as delicious as Thin Mints.  After the first bite, I ate the entire box within an hour.

Raspberry Rallys are REALLY THAT GOOD.  I, personally, wouldn't say it beats Thin Mints, but I think it's up there in the top 5 best on my list - a must try!

Here's the thing, the Raspberry Rally cookie is an online-exclusive cookie that can only be purchased online and shipped directly to you starting February 27th, 2023.  If you really want to try it and see what all the hype is about, order yours here to support a local troop in Northern Illinois!

It's scrumptious.  You'll probably be as surprised as I was!  Other than Thin Mints, my other guilty pleasures are Samoas, Lemonades, and Peanut Butter Patties. What about you?
