The new cookie, called the Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread cookie, is made with real chocolate chips and real butter, and contains no artificial flavors, no artificial colors, no high fructose corn syrup, no palm oil, and no hydrogenated oils.

The gluten-free cookies will be sold in a 5 ounce resealable foil pouch, with 12 pouches per case.
