Raspberry Rally Update 2/13/2023

Dear GSWNY Members and Volunteers,

The demand for the Raspberry Rally cookie is higher than expected!

ABC Bakers has informed us that the Raspberry Rally will be out of stock until March 4th. ABC Bakers did not expect to sell out quite as fast, as the demand was greater than expected. 28,000 cases of Raspberry Rally product was released at midnight on Friday February 10th, and was already sold out by Sunday morning.

To allow for inventory management and for all councils to have access to the online-limited quantity Raspberry Rally, this variety will be out of stock until March 4th. There are two large councils who just started sales as of 2/10 and only had access to the product for 36 hours. GSWNY started direct ship in December so we were fortunate to have prior access to the product. Once the product is back in stock and available to purchase from ABC Baker’s online website, the remaining product will be released until completely sold out for the 2023 Cookie season.

To help your Girl Scout reach her goals, we have a record-breaking amount of booth locations scheduled in March! Our Cookie Cupboards will be well stocked with your favorite classic varieties- Thin Mints, Caramel deLites, Peanut Butter Patties and more!
