Girl Scouts are asking people to stop selling and buying their cookies on eBay. Third-party sellers have been reselling the wildly popular Raspberry Rally flavor for $100 per box. Normally, a box of Girl Scout cookies costs $5.

The organization says that while they are happy that there’s such a high demand, they are “saddened that the platforms and the sellers are disregarding the core mission of the cookie program.”

The Girl Scouts is the largest girl-led entrepreneurship program in the world.

Cookie customers could and should be using that money to support girls by buying the many other varieties or by supporting the program through donations,” a spokesperson said. eBay says the sale of Girl Scout cookies is not a policy violation.
