Celiac.com 01/15/2019 - The annual Girl Scout cookie season is kicking off for 2019 with some fresh new cookies, including the gluten-free Caramel Chocolate Chip. The Scouts’ newest treat is flavored with semi-sweet chocolate chips, caramel and a hint of sea salt.
The gluten-free Caramel Chocolate Chip cookie is the first new Girl Scout cookie since their popular S’mores was introduced in 2016, and the first new gluten-free cookie since the Girl Scouts first introduced gluten-free cookies nationally in 2015. Each Caramel Chocolate Chip cookie has just under 60 calories, 4 grams of sugar and just under 3 grams of fat. Other traditional Girl Scout favorites include Thin Mints, Do-si-dos, Samoas and Trefoils.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program is committed to promoting entrepreneurial and business skills in girls. According to a statement by Girl Scouts of the USA CEO Sylvia Acevedo “…all Girl Scout Cookie proceeds stay local to power year-round troop projects and activities, when you buy Girl Scout Cookies, you are making an investment in girls and in your local community."
Cookies prices may vary regionally, as they are set individually by each of the local 112 Girl Scout councils. To buy Girl Scout cookies, including their newest gluten-free Caramel Chocolate Chip, download the Girl Scout Cookie Finder app or go to Girlscoutcookies.org and enter your zip code.
