I was wondering if anyone new about the annual nut sale the girl scouts do every year, if anything is gluten free?

I have emailed the GSA directly, but no response... yet.

They have chocolate covered peanuts and raisins, turtles, mint chocolates and mixed nuts among other things.

If anyone knows, that would be great before ordering.

Thanks :)

This must be a regional thing. No nut sales here.

here, this might help. I'm a girl cout and just whipped out my order form :) but it may vary from region to region, I know they use different bakeries for the cookies. This is for CT at least, idk about anywhere else. ask your local girl scout to check her order form, it gives a link for allery/nutrition info.

edit: oh whoops, i just realized that's the same link you posted :)

This is the reply that I received this morning.

Dear Amanda,

I had to go to the source in order to answer questions related to gluten free products from Trophy Nut Company, as my records show that is what nut company GSC Tanasai is using. Please see Bob Wilke's answer below-it looks like there are two products you need to steer clear of. However, if you are really sensitive (as are folks with peanut allergies), we can not guarantee that you will not have problems. But that is true for anything manufactured in the same place as other products. I hope this helps.

Chris,

Any of our mixes that have sesame stix would contain wheat which is a form of gluten. Our Honey Peanuts have Maltodextrin which is made from wheat and therefore is a form of Gluten. So our Honey Peanuts and our Cajun Mix are the only two products that contain a form of gluten, however, saying that our products are Gluten Free would kind of be like saying our Cashews are Peanut Free. The fact is that all of our products are produced in a facility that handles products that contain a form of Gluten. Therefore, I would never claim that we are Gluten Free even though you are correct in that most standard nut products would not contain any form of Gluten.
