In case you need an excuse to eat cookies first thing in the morning, the Girl Scouts of the USA are giving you one. As CNN reports, the organization is adding new breakfast-inspired French toast treats to its cookie lineup in 2021.
The new Girl Scout cookie variety, named Toast-Yay!, is meant to look and taste like a slice of French toast. Each cookie is shaped like a piece of bread with the Girl Scout's signature trefoil stamped on top and a coating of icing on the bottom. It joins the Girl Scouts' classic selection of cookies, which includes Thin Mints and Samoas (or Caramel deLites, depending on where you live).
The Girl Scout cookie program has changed a lot in recent months. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many troops were forced to transition their businesses from in-person sales to online orders with the Girl Scout Cookie Care digital platform, which will return for the 2021 cookie season. In addition to selling cookies via the website, some troops will organize "virtual cookie booths" on social media. There will also be socially distant or contactless sales and delivery options in certain areas, while other troops will sell cookies in person depending on local guidelines.
Girl Scout cookie season typically starts in January, so customers still have to wait a few months before trying the new French toast option. Until then, take a trip down memory lane with these discontinued cookie varieties from Girl Scout cookie seasons past.
