A new Girl Scout Cookie flavor that’s been highly anticipated for 2023 will become available next month as Girl Scouts of the USA launches the organization’s cookie season nationwide.

Raspberry Rally, a thin and crispy cookie with a raspberry filling and chocolate coating, is an online exclusive that’ll become available on the Girl Scout Cookies website starting Feb. 27, according to a press release issued on Tuesday.

What’s the cost of Girl Scout Cookies this year?

There are 111 Girl Scout councils in the US and each council sets its own cookie prices based on the needs and knowledge they have about its local market, a spokesperson for Girl Scouts of the USA told FOX Business.

Girl Scout Cookie prices reportedly range from $4 to $7 for a single box nationwide.

Girl Scout Cookie season runs from January to April, although local timing varies, according to the organization’s press release.

Where does the money go?

Girl Scouts of the USA’s Girl Scout Cookie Program is an entrepreneurial program for registered Girl Scouts.

The proceeds from each cookie sale stay with the local troop and council that made the sale, and the money is used to fund Girl Scout programming and experiences, according to Girl Scouts of the USA.
