The price of Girl Scouts cookies is going up this year. Fans of Thin Mints, Samoas and Tagalongs will have to pay $5 a box in some neighborhoods, instead of the previous $4.

Ultimately, each of the Girl Scouts’ 112 local councils will set prices individually, but some units in Massachusetts and California have confirmed the rise, CNBC reports.

Social media has already lamented the 25% price hike. Knowing that Girl Scouts units sell the iconic cookies to fund their activities and charities might make the news a little easier to swallow.
