Girl Scouts in Western New York are now selling the exclusively online, berry-blasted Raspberry Rally cookie alongside the iconic cookie lineup, powering amazing experiences in outdoors, STEM, and beyond.

On Saturday, Girl Scouts of Western New York (GSWNY) kicks off the 2023 Girl Scout Cookie program for Girl Scouts and their troops to begin rallying the community to support the world’s largest entrepreneurial program for girls. New to the 2023 cookie program, the highly anticipated online exclusive Raspberry Rally cookie joins the iconic lineup, alongside classic family favorites like Thin Mints, Adventurefuls, Caramel deLites, Peanut Butter Patties Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Lemonades, Toast-Yays and Trefoils (previously named Shortbread).

Nutritional information about the cookies including allergen information is available at the ABC Bakers website, www.abcbakers.com.

All cookie varieties will be $6 per package. One-hundred percent of all proceeds stays local within Girl Scouts of Western New York. Each package continues to support our mission to support girls and volunteers. GSWNY will continue to provide a 50% subsidy for online direct ship to your home for every nine packages of cookies. Cookies are able to be purchased and shipped nationwide in the U.S.

Consumers can support their local Girl Scout troops by purchasing their favorite varieties and trying the new, online exclusive Raspberry Rally, a thin crispy cookie infused with raspberry flavor and dipped in the same delicious chocolaty coating as the beloved Thin Mints cookies. This must-try new cookie will be the first in the Girl Scout Cookie lineup to be exclusively offered for online sale and direct shipment only, enhancing girls’ e-commerce sales and entrepreneurial skills.

If you know a Girl Scout, ask how they are selling cookies via their online store front for direct shipment or local delivery. Beginning Feb. 17, consumers can enter their ZIP code to purchase cookies online from a local troop for direct shipment or donation to local causes. Once cookies arrive in March, visit the Cookie Finder www.gswny.org/findcookies to view cookie booths within your communities.
