Earlier this year, Girl Scouts announced a new cookie, the Raspberry Rally, to great fanfare. The crispy raspberry-flavored cookie is dipped in chocolate and kind of has Thin Mint vibes, texture-wise. People are so into it that it’s now sold out, and people lucky enough to snag a box are selling them for a profit on eBay.
“Girl Scouts of the USA is disappointed to see unauthorized resales of Girl Scout cookies online through third-party e-commerce platforms,” a spokesperson for the organization shared in a statement to Today. “While we are happy that there’s such a strong demand for our cookies year-over-year, we’re saddened that the platforms and the sellers are disregarding the core mission of the cookie program and are looking to make a profit off of the name without supporting our mission and the largest girl-led entrepreneurship program in the world.”

It’s not even the Girl Scouts’ fault that they didn’t have enough boxes of Raspberry Rallys to go around. In a January statement, they foresaw cookie production issues, as global food supply shortages continue to be an issue. But even so, it’s kind of a dick move to sell boxes of $5 cookies for such a massive profit, especially because the Girl Scouts organization is actually a good one that teaches young ladies about business and entrepreneurship through the cookie program. I guess they’re learning young that the internet is ruthless and people will do anything to make a buck.
