Let the mourning commence: The short-lived Raspberry Rally Girl Scout cookies won't be for sale this season.

The big picture: The widely sought-after cookie flavor, unveiled last year, sold out quickly after its release and led to a hugely marked-up resale market.

Yes, but: That wasn't enough to keep the flavor on the cookie market for a second year.

  • "To mitigate potential supply challenges and to simplify the program for our Girl Scouts and volunteers, Raspberry Rally cookies are being put on pause," the Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles told Axios.
  • No other flavors are being put on pause or discontinued, the organization confirmed.

Of note: Described as a sister to Thin Mints with a raspberry flavor, the delicious sweet was the Girl Scouts' first online exclusive cookie and was a part of a pilot online sales strategy.

The bottom line: You'll be able to find comfort with the classics, like Samoas and Thin Mints, which will return during the cookie season come January.
