New Girl Scout cookie flavor announced for 2021 season

A breakfast cookie is coming soon.

The Girl Scouts of the USA is adding a new flavor to their beloved lineup of cookies, the group announced Tuesday. Taste buds, meet the Toast-Yay.

The new, French toast-themed dessert features a top layer of frosting with a maple syrup-like flavor, a crunchy texture and a signature trefoil stamp, and the cookie is shaped like a slice of toast — raised crust edge included.

The Toast-Yays are already available in select areas and will be nationally available beginning in January when the 2021 Girl Scout cookie season starts. (The exact timing of Toast-Yays becoming available will vary locally.)

“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 Girl Scouts representative told the Huffington Post. “ ‘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 front-line workers and local causes.”

The cookie-fied French toast bites come in a lime green container holding 16 Toast-Yays. Each cookie has 10 grams of added sugars, 6 grams of fat and 90 milligrams of sodium and is 70 calories.

The newest cookie flavor will join several popular varieties, including Thin Mints, Trefoils, Samoas, Tagalongs, Do-si-dos and Lemon-Ups.

There will be pandemic-conscious purchase options in addition to classic, real-time Girl Scout troop sales.

“In the 2021 season, Girl Scouts will again be selling cookies through online platforms and innovative ‘virtual cookie booths’ on social media (with parental supervision),” the representative said. “Many girls will offer socially distant or contactless sales and delivery options. If local guidelines allow, in-person sales may also be available in certain areas, keeping girls’ safety top priority.”

Only registered Girl Scouts can sell Girl Scout Cookies, the organization warns on its website.
