This year we are saying goodbye to Thank- a-Lots and hello to the new French toast-inspired cookie, Toast-Yay! Imagine your favorite things about this breakfast classic, but in dessert form. We’re talking icing-dipped cinnamon cookies that are shaped like little toasties. Yay!
ABC Bakers and Little Brownie Bakers
Can you picture the crispy, minty crunch of a chocolaty Thin Mint in your mouth or is it just us? No wonder these cookies are the top selling variety of the Girl Scout franchise! With such a cool and refreshing crunch, they are hard not to love. Pro tip: Keep them in your freezer to up the chill factor and extend Girl Scout season.
Hey lemon lovers, this one’s for you! These cookies provide a refreshing hint of sweet citrus in a crispy shortbread cookie package. Be sure to opt for Lemonades rather than the Girl Scout Lemon-Ups which are NOT vegan.
Peanut Butter Patties
These drool-worthy Girl Scout classics offer a crisp inside with a chocolate and peanut butter coating. Sign us up! No Tagalongs here, please—be sure to opt for the ABC Bakers version to ensure vegan-approved cookies.
Girl Scout S’mores
Missing the vibes of summer? The Girl Scouts of America have your back. Opt for this tasty treat for all the chocolate, graham cracker, and marshmallow flavors. Be sure to choose the chocolate-covered version aka the vegan ABC Bakers cookie variety.
