Gone but Not Forgotten

Not only are Girl Scout cookies delicious, they also pack a nostalgic punch. Sold at booths and online by Girl Scout troops each year — typically from January to April — the cookies help bolster important causes. Proceeds are reinvested in local Girl Scout troops and help fund programs, trips, volunteer support, financial assistance, and more.

While I usually buy Thin Mints by the case, I have a bone to pick with the Girl Scout cookie-makers over some flavors that are longer produced. Join me on a walk down memory lane as we revisit how some of the most popular (and wild) Girl Scout cookies crumbled.

Girl Scouts Raspberry Rally cookie
Girl Scouts of the USA

1. Raspberry Rally

This little treat occupies a unique spot in Girl Scout cookie history. It arrived in 2023; it was the first cookie available exclusively online, and by 2024, it was gone. Raspberry Rally was a raspberry-flavored cookie dipped in the same chocolate as the fan-favorite Thin Mints. Demand was strong, and soon they were being sold on eBay for well over $100, which the Girl Scouts of the USA thought was pretty crummy. Subsequently last fall, it was announced that the Raspberry Rally would not be in this year's lineup, much to the disappointment of many who never got to try them.


2. All Abouts

Sold from 2001 to 2008, All Abouts were chocolate-dipped shortbread cookies that had different words, such as "Friendship," "Respect," and "Thanks," printed on them. All Abouts were made from a simple, buttery shortbread dough that was rolled out and cut into rectangles, and were quite popular among fans. "Best [Girl Scout] cookies to ever exist. Simple yet so tasteful," writes one user on a fandom page.

4. Animal Treasures

Discontinued in 2005, Animal Treasures were animal-shaped cookies made from a vanilla-flavored shortbread cut into squares. The fun shapes and designs made them a hit with children, and they were educational, too: Each cookie had a picture of an endangered animal printed on it. 

Girl Scout Cookies Juliettes

5. Juliettes

Named after Girl Scout founder Juliette Gordon Low, these cookies were similar to chocolate-covered pretzels and featured a gooey caramel center topped with crushed pecans. First made available in 1984, they were discontinued a year later before being resurrected in 1993. Juliettes were ultimately axed for good in 1996 due to production difficulties: The caramel filling in the cookie was prone to melting during transport, causing the cookies to stick together and become damaged.

6. Olé Olés

Made from a vanilla and oatmeal-based shortbread and featuring shredded coconut, pecans, and dusted powdered sugar, Olé Olés were marketed as a healthier cookie alternative, but were discontinued in 2003. According to Little Brownie Bakers — one of the official manufacturers of Girl Scout cookies — the axing was attributed to low sales. (Guess healthy cookies just don't hit the same.)

7. Thanks-A-Lot

Thanks-A-Lot were crisp cookies covered in a rich layer of chocolate coating. Similar to All Abouts, these cookies had "Thank You" printed on top in one of five different languages: English, French, Spanish, Swahili, and Mandarin Chinese. Discontinued in 2021 after a 15-year run, Thanks-A-Lot cookies were a popular choice among fans and served as a sweet and fun way to express gratitude.

8. Lemon Chalet Crèmes

First introduced in the 1980s as Cabana Crèmes, this cookie featured a tangy lemon filling sandwiched between two crispy shortbread cookies infused with a touch of cinnamon and ginger. The top of each cookie was decorated with a Swiss chalet that exists in real life. Lemon Chalet Crèmes were discontinued and replaced by Savannah Smiles in 2012.

Two Healthy Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies XXL

9. Thank U Berry Munch

Introduced in 2009, Thank U Berry Munch cookies were made with cranberries, white fudge chips, and a hint of cinnamon. Despite being hugely popular, the cookie was discontinued in 2014 due to high overheard costs and low sales in some regions. "I love these cookies, [they are] the cookie of my childhood. I beg of you, please bring these cookies back," writes one user on a Girl Scout cookie fandom page.

10. Upside Downs

Another one of the shortest-lived Girl Scout cookies, Upside Downs were discontinued after only one year in 1999. Featuring a chocolate base topped with a vanilla, oatmeal frosting and sprinkled with brown sugar, the cookie was designed to reflect the idea of turning negative situations "upside down" and pushing on in the face of challenges — in line with the Girl Scout philosophy of building courage, confidence, and character.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

11. Le Chips

Debuting in 1996, this oatmeal cookie was made with chocolate chips and pieces of hazelnut. Despite showing a lot of promise, it was cut after only one year on the market (presumably because America hadn't caught on to the Nutella craze yet). If you're a fan of hazelnut-infused cookies, however, give this gluten-free version a try

Macadamia Nut Cookies

12. Aloha Chips

Around for a short time in the early 2000s, Aloha Chips were a crunchy oatmeal- and coconut-based cookie topped with white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts. The flavor was inspired by the tropical flavors of Hawaii, and the name was meant to convey a sense of warmth and welcome. 

Stacked Sugared Lemon Cookies

13. Savannah Smiles

Discontinued in 2019 to the chagrin of many fans, Savannah Smiles were bite-sized cookies with a sweet and tangy lemon filling and a dusting of powdered sugar. The name "Savannah Smiles" was a nod to the birthplace of Girl Scout founder Juliette Gordon Low, who was born in Savannah, Georgia. The cookie is so beloved that there's even a petition demanding for it to be brought back.

14. Mango Crèmes

 This unique vanilla and coconut cookie with a layer of mango-flavored crème was considered a pretty wild pick when it launched in 2013. According to Gothamist, the cookies were made with "rehydrated apples, oranges, cranberries, pomegranates, limes, strawberries, and shiitake mushrooms." The novelty cookie did not last for long. (I mean, perhaps the mushrooms were a bit much?)
