Girl Scouts Announce Return of Gluten-Free Cookies For 2016

Celiac.com 02/17/2016 - Gluten-free Girl Scout Cookies are much loved by many with celiac disease or gluten-sensitivities. That's why it will be taken as great news for lovers of Girl Scout Cookies, and things gluten-free, to hear that Girl Scouts of the USA has announced the return of gluten-free Girl Scout Cookies for the 2016 cookie season.

These tasty treats made history in 2015 as the organization's first-ever nationwide offering of gluten-free options. They, along with other delicious favorites like Thin Mints and Samoas/Caramel deLites, will be available nationwide from most Girl Scout councils.

Unfortunately, not all varieties will be available in every market, so check with your local Girl Scout council to find out which the cookies will be sold in your area. Also, check out Google or Apple to download the mobile Girl Scout Cookie finder app for your Android or iPhone.

Why don't the Girl Scouts make their Thin Mints Gluten Free instead of coming up with these other choices? Girl Scout Thin Mints were popular when I was a girl scout 50+ years ago. It is the best seller! So please make it GF!

I find it disappointing that the Girl Scouts have chosen one of their 2 gluten free cookies to have peanuts in them. It is hard enough to be gluten free, but my kids also have peanut allergies. In our area, the gluten free toffee flavored cookies weren't even offered. Considering the poor ingredients (high fructose corn syrup) used in their cookies, my kids are probably better off without them anyway.

Oh, I would hate to have you test negative because your gluten challenge was not long enough. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ https://www.beyondceliac.org/celiac-disease/Testing-and-Diagnosis/The-Gluten-Challenge/1510/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/p...

thank you guys. I'm hoping the Gi will call back tomorrow. I'm getting the kitchen totally gluten free, except for a few things my sister who is a bit disabled is going to have. But no bread, flour, pasta and most other things will not have gluten. And my daughter doesn't go to school, she d...

Unprocessed food is great, but a life without chocolate no way! Am sure you will find a suitable brand. I don't eat Lindt, think they may use barley, others may know more. The Moser Roth are Aldi own brand. Looks like Aldi aren't in CR so not an alternative for you sorry. Maybe chec...

Ok guys, I'm not an expert. Maybe it was really just cc as Matt said. Or my body is just too sensitive now and this thing is too artificial/chemical. I feel that real unprocessed food is better for me now. It won't be a problem to find another brand. The Moser Roth doesn't sound familiar t...
