COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - There’s a new Girl Scout cookie coming soon and one of its developers is a South Carolina State University alumnus.
Andre Sojourner graduated from SC State in 2009 and helped develop the new Toast-Yay! cookie, which will join classics like Thin Mints and Samoas in the Girl Scouts’ cookie lineup in 2021.
Sojourner is a food scientist and Spartanburg native and is excited that the cookies he helped created will be enjoyed by many.
“When I’m working, I want to make sure that I create products that others will enjoy and satisfy the clients’ needs. I understand the technical and scientific components of the food industry, but I also glean from my experiences as a consumer and someone who enjoys food,” Sojourner said.
Toast-Yay! cookies are French toast inspired and dipped in icing and will be nationally recognized beginning January 2021.
