People love their Girl Scout cookies, but most won’t even consider buying them if they are gluten intolerant, celiac, or have a family member they need to support. So it was good to see this Girl Scout’s blog post announcing that they are testing cookies that are gluten-free:
Girl Scouts will also debut three new cookie varieties this cookie season. For the first time in Girl Scout history, gluten-free cookies will be available nationwide from most Girl Scout councils. The two new gluten-free offerings include: Toffee-tastic, buttery cookies with toffee bits, and Trios, made with real peanut butter, chocolate chips, and whole grain oats. The third new cookie, Rah-Rah Raisins, is an oatmeal raisin cookie with whole grain oats, plump, juicy raisins, and Greek yogurt–flavored chunks. The newcomers will join legendary classics like Thin Mints and Samoas/Caramel deLites. Not all varieties are available in every market, so contact your local council to inquire about the cookies they will carry this season.
Gluten Free Living’s post, Girl Scouts Go Gluten Free, got in to more detail:
Girl Scout councils from Maine to California will be testing sales of peanut butter oatmeal cookies called Trios, made with chocolate chips, peanut butter and certified gluten-free whole grain oats. Other councils throughout the United States will be offering the Toffee-tastic, a buttery shortbread cookie with toffee bits. Trios will be produced in a dedicated gluten-free plant, and Toffee-tastics will be tested to make sure they meet gluten-free labeling standards.
Once again you and your family can enjoy cookies from your favorite Girl Scout!
