Mark Your Calendars, There’s a New Girl Scout Cookie on the Way

Breakfast for dessert sounds wonderful to me.

It may only be August, but with the year we’ve had so far, most of us are already looking ahead to 2021. What better to look forward to than Girl Scout cookies? It’s hard to resist the sweet, sweet taste of Tagalongs or the satisfying snap of a Thin Mint. For the 2020 cookie season, the Girl Scouts announced their new Lemon-Ups as well as the addition of online ordering.

Here’s the new Girl Scout Cookie to expect for 2021!

Introducing the Toast-Yay!

I can’t imagine a more amazing flavor. Starting August 18th, the GSUSA (Girl Scouts of the USA) began their countdown to cookie season with their latest announcement: a brand-new cookie! It’s called the Toast-Yay! and the new flavor is heavily inspired by French toast. Yes, you read that correctly. French. Toast. How was this not already a thing?

According to GSUSA, the cookie is “dipped in delicious icing and full of flavor in every bite.” This should make life a little brighter, and we have to give the Scouts a much-needed thank you. With everything that’s happened over the past year, it almost brings a tear to my eye knowing these girls are out here still trying to make the world a better place one cookie at a time.

A gift box is also available for the Toast-Yay! and can be shipped directly to loved ones to continue the safe practice of social distancing. How sweet!

When Will Girl Scout Cookies Be Available?

While GSUSA recognizes the start of cookie season in January, they mention that product availability and timing are local factors, so speak to your local council for more information. Don’t worry, online ordering will also be available! In the meantime, get your stomach ready for the perfection that is sure to be the Toast-Yay! and thank a local Girl Scout whenever you get the chance.
