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.
