There’s a standard false impression that, as the daddy of a Lady Scout (Brownie, technically), I’m aware about cookie reductions. That is patently false. In reality, what ACTUALLY occurs is that I find yourself having to purchase extra cookies than simply about anybody else. Right here’s how that transpires.
“Dad, I’m solely ten bins away from the subsequent prize.”
“At 100 bins, I get a glow-in-the-dark cup.”
So I sigh, pull out my pockets, and fork over the whatever-amount-needed to make sure that she will acquire what theoretically quantities to a $600 plastic cup.
The excellent news is that Lady Scout cookies are fantastic. Properly, a few of them. Peanut Butter Patties (aka Tagalongs), Caramel deLites (aka Samoas), and Skinny Mints are all wonderful choices, clearly, and there are others that may do in a pinch. It’s from the Skinny Mint that ABC Bakers attracts inspiration for its newest providing: the Raspberry Rally.
Marketed as “the skinny, crispy cookie infused with raspberry taste and dipped in chocolaty coating,” and “a ‘sister’ cookie to Skinny Mints, our #1 bestseller,” “the raspberry sort,” as it’s positive to almost at all times be referred to as, is an internet solely providing this Lady Scout cookie season.
So is it price it?
In the event you like raspberry-flavored issues, or the idea of a Skinny Mint however inexplicably discover mint to be unpleasant, the reply is sure, you’ll in all probability like this cookie.
The cookie itself is indistinguishable in look and assemble from its minty sister. The surface of the skinny cookie is the marginally waxy (but scrumptious) “chocolaty” coating that you’ll acknowledge in case you’re a connoisseur of Lady Scout cookies.
The within, nonetheless, is the place issues get loopy. As a substitute of the near-black wafer of a Skinny Mint, you’re blasted with a vivid pink center. The factitious raspberry taste is robust upon the primary chunk and grows stronger nonetheless as you eat. It’s nearly *too* a lot, and I say this as an unapologetic fan of most synthetic fruit flavoring.
And actually, that’s the story of the Raspberry Rally — it’s a Skinny Mint, solely raspberry flavored. Very sturdy raspberry flavoring, although. It’s price a go in case you like fruity chocolate cookies or are a Lady Scout cookie completist, however I don’t know that I’ll really feel compelled to purchase a complete field every season. You realize, except it means my daughter is just one field away from a $300 eraser within the form of a bee.
