Girl Scouts Announce Creative New Cookie Flavor
Girl Scouts of the USA know that we could all use something to look forward to these days. This week, months ahead of Girl Scout cookie season, the organization announced a new cookie in select areas.
Behold: Toast-Yay!, a French toast–inspired cookie dipped in delicious icing.
"The name is designed to be a play on words for 'toasty,' which evokes the warmth and joy we believe people will associate with this great new French Toast-inspired flavor," a representative for the Girl Scouts explained to HuffPost. "'Toast' draws on the cookie's unique toast shape and attributes of French Toast, and 'yay!' celebrates joy―the joy that Girl Scout Cookies bring to consumers, and how Girl Scouts create moments of joy as they use their cookie earnings to support their communities and donate cookies to frontline workers and local causes."
HuffPost describes each French toast-flavored cookie as roughly the size of the palm of your hand, "thin and crunchy," and with the texture of a "frosted animal cookie."
What's not to like about that?
"Like classic favorites Thin Mints, Girl Scout S'mores, and Samoas/Caramel deLites, every Girl Scout Cookie helps girls gain the people skills and business smarts they need to take on the world with confidence," a blog post announcing the new cookie states.

For the 2021 season, Girl Scouts will again be practicing social distancing by selling cookies through online platforms and "virtual cookie booths" on social media.
The cookies will be available for purchase in the 2021 season, which begins nationally in January, though exact timing and product availability varies locally.
