Here are the 2024 cookies:

Absent from the list are the Raspberry Rally cookies, introduced last year in a pilot online program, but put on pause, the Girl Scout organization said, so it can concentrate on its classic cookie varieties.

These cookies, billed as a “sister” to Thin Mints, but infused with raspberry flavorings instead of mint, were always intended as a limited-edition cookie available only online. But they sold out quickly, becoming as difficult to score as Taylor Swift tickets, with “cookie scalpers” selling them for exorbitant prices. Some cookies ended up on eBay.

The Girl Scouts were disappointed, scolding the profiteers in a statement provided to NBC’s “Today” show.

“While we are happy that there’s such a strong demand for our cookies year-over-year, we’re saddened that the platforms and the sellers are disregarding the core mission of the cookie program and are looking to make a profit off of the name without supporting our mission and the largest girl-led entrepreneurship program in the world.”

Girl Scouts USA points out that proceeds from each box of cookies sold remains with local troops and councils to help create “impactful experiences throughout the year, including service projects, troop travel and even summer camp.”
