The Raspberry Rally is being called "Thin Mints' sister."

Was one of your New Year’s resolutions to eat more cookies? If so, you’re in luck. That’s because today is the start of the Girl Scout Cookie season! Yes, it’s that beautiful time of year when Thin Mints, Samoas, Peanut Butter Patties and more finally come back into your life … and your belly.

And this year, a new Girl Scout cookie is just begging to become your new favorite. The Raspberry Rally is being called “Thin Mints' sister,” but we promise they have a flavor all their own. The thin, crispy cookie is infused with raspberry flavor and then dipped in chocolate.

Raspberry Rally is sure to become a fan-favorite, much like the previous new flavor, Adventurefuls. Adventurefuls took Girl Scout cookie booths by storm last year — and left many people disappointed, as Girl Scouts didn’t have enough of the cookie to keep up with the demand.

“Little Brownie Bakers is working diligently to address the impact that the labor shortage has had on the production of Adventurefuls,” the Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital Council said in a statement last year, Food and Wine reported. “GSUSA is working with both cookie companies to try to provide a solution before the end of the cookie season, so we still have hope. Your other Girl Scout Cookie favorites like Thin Mints and Samoas are in stock and ready to go.”

Lesson learned: Scoop up boxes of Raspberry Rally as soon as you see little girls in Girl Scout uniforms, because you might not get a second chance!

This year Girl Scout cookie prices have been hit by inflation (like everything else), so you might be paying $6 a box instead of $5, depending on which area of the country you live in. At least it will give Girl Scouts more of an opportunity to flex their math skills as they make change!
