A new Girl Scout Cookie is coming! A new Girl Scout Cookie is coming! And it definitely seems like something to toast to.

Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) has announced that its batch of offerings for the 2021 Girl Scout Cookie season will include not only long-loved faves like Thin Mints, Samoas and Tagalongs, but also a new cookie: a toast-shaped, icing-dipped, French-toast inspired cookie the organization is calling Toast-Yay!

“Each delightful, toast-shaped cookie is full of French toast flavor and flair and stamped with the trusted Girl Scouts’ signature trefoil on top,” the Girl Scouts boasts.

OK, maybe its name is a bit of a mouthful, but the cookie, which will be available in “select areas” of the country, a) looks adorable and b) sounds pretty tasty. Plus, it’s definitely great to have something new to look forward to right about now.

Also new for the 2021 Girl Scout Cookie season, which kicks off nationally in January and, as always, aims to promote entrepreneurship and raise money for the Scouts: a gift box option you can ship to friends and family via the Digital Cookie/Smart Cookie online platform previously introduced by GSUSA to help with sales.

Although in-person sales may be available for 2021 in some areas, where local guidelines deem it safe, the online platforms and “virtual cookie booths” on social media that helped Girl Scouts handle orders in a socially distant, contactless way (and facilitated the donation of cookies to first responders, volunteers and local charitable organizations) this year, will again be employed next year.

Here’s to hoping 2021 shapes up to be a sweet year. (Now that’d be something worth toasting to.)
