I raise my berry-banana protein smoothie to you, Girl Scout Cookies. It was fun while it lasted, and I'll miss you. I will always remember you fondly!

this  year   girl  scouts  do  have  a gluten-free  cookie ! It  is  sold  in  certain  regions of the US..... You  can look  on their  site  for the  specific  regions.....

Next  if  you Google  gluten-free  thin mints,  samosa's  &  so  ,  several blogs  have   cloned  most  of  if  not all  girl scout  cookies  to be  gluten-free....

my cousin works for the girl scouts and she is constantly posting about cookies in gsc season  :o  like mamaw said:  just get yourself a recipe - i'm sure they are a popular 'gluten-free copycat' favorite :)

I won't miss them too much, but I sure would devour those shortbread cookies they make.  And I would freeze some, too.  Just give yourself an indulgence of your choice in place of them :)  But it does suck to say no to the little girls!  Makes you feel like a jerk walking past their booth on the way into the store and such.  I, too, will remember them fondly.

Also, I've wondered if the gluten free GS cookies are really gluten-free?  Made on gluten-free lines and all?  Anyone know?

Self diagnosed gluten intolerant, gluten free since 12/09.
Diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 15 years ago. Fibro symptoms have improved but not gone away with gluten free living.
Osteoarthritis, mostly in hands and neck and lumbar spine. Not sure if going gluten-free has helped that problem, but it certainly can't hurt. (Am very grateful that so far no sign of the RA that is devastating my mother lately.)
Considering a dairy free trial. Considering.

Yes, I have eaten the cookies and they are certified gluten free in a dedicated facility.

I have found that Safeway's Eating Right brand has a delicious gluten-free oreo cookie. I'm sure I can find substitutes for GSCs, but it just hit me that this is something I can't buy anymore, it didn't occur to me last October. I just hope the substitutes are not like Gluten Free Beer. Yuck! ;-)

 

By the way, LauraTX, I LOVE your profile pic! Fellow Tortie lover/owner, are ya? :-)

Torties for life!!! :D  

 

I call anything other than oreo brand "fauxreos"  LOL!   I am a huge fan of the kinnickkinnick ones with chocolate cookies and filling.  Never buy them cause I devour the whole pack.
