Baturday News is a weekly blog written by Rachael, a middle school student and Save Lucy volunteer. Rachael’s interest in bats was sparked by the big brown bats that used the outside of her former home for a winter roost. Her family cheerfully hosted the wild colony for years.

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a good week! Most of my week was good, but I had to take some standardized tests (the VA SOLs). That was not fun, but at least it’s over for now. There will be more in May. L The bats are all very happy that they do not have to take them. I’m a little bit jealous.

Bat Scout cookies are delish!

I’m sure some of you have noticed that it is Girl Scout cookie season. That means, of course, that it is also Bat Scout cookie season! The season is almost over and the little Bat Scouts have been working really hard selling their cookies. They are the same cookie flavors as last year, which were…

Mango Munchies – Perfect for fruit bats. These bite-sized mango cookies are dusted with powdered banana and are bursting with yummy mango flavor.

Bat Wings – Shaped like a bat’s wing, these delicate-tasting, insect flavored cookies are delightfully simple and satisfying.

Crunch-A-Dos – Crisp and crunchy beetle shell cookies with creamy worm filling.

Caledonias – Crisp fruity cookie coated in nectar, sprinkled with toasted pollen, and striped with a dark blossomy coating.

Hangalongs – Crispy cookies layered with mealworm butter and covered with a mothy coating.

Thin Moths – Crispy cookies covered with a mothy coating.

Rah Rah Rove Beetles – Hearty beetle shell cookies with plump rove beetle chunks.

Don’t they sound tasty? I think most humans would love the Mango Munchies better than the others. The bats are all flapping around like crazy waiting for their treats to arrive. Two of Save Lucy’s little bats, Freda and Poppy, are going to work at a cookie booth this weekend in front of the neighborhood grocery store to get some last minute sales. Wish them luck!
