Girl Scouts Debut Gluten-free Toffee-Tastic Cookie!

Celiac.com 04/05/2016 - Girl Scouts USA Recently debuted "Trios," a gluten-free cookie now available at select Girl Scout Cookie booth locations. Gluten-free Trios are made with real peanut butter, chocolate chips and whole grain oats, and are going for $5 a package.

Image: CC--Mike LichtThat's not bad for gluten-free cookie, as the other eight varieties are $4 a package and include: Thin Mint, Shortbread, Peanut Butter Patties, Caramel deLites, Lemonades, Peanut Butter Sandwich, Thanks-A-Lot, and Cranberry Citrus Crisps.

All Girl Scout cookies are preservative-free, kosher, with zero trans fat per ser serving. The Girl Scouts have a mobile app to help supporters find their local Girl Scout Cookie Booth sales, by zip code or GPS.

Download the official Cookie Finder app to your Android or iPhone, or visit girlscoutcookies.org to find booth sale locations.

Not all booths will carry the Trios cookie, however, as it's available in limited quantities, so be sure to check with your local scouts to see if they are available near you.

Hi there, I just want you to know that it's not a gluten-free version of the Toffee-tastic cookie as indicated in the headline. Trios are a completely new cookie, and they are just as you described in the article.

Actually the Trios have been around for a couple of years. I know the Central Maryland Council has had them for 3 years now. Trust me, the ToffeeTastics are divine.

Thanks to my west-coast granddaughter, I was able to try the ToffeeTastics. Thanks to my east-coast granddaughter I have tried the Trios. I find that the Trios are a bit dry. However the ToffeeTastics are the BEST GF cookie around. Although they can be a little crumbly, they are rich, buttery shortbread cookies with a few toffee bits through out. I LOVE THE TOFFEETASTICS. I hope that both options will be available nationwide. The "regular" folks have several options and it's not fair to only provide ONE option to the GF folks.

To me, what really isn't fair is that we are always charged more money than others.

Are you substituting something for the PPI? I'm not sure what meds will mix well with it, but you could ask the pharmacy or Dr. for advice on what might work. I'm thinking you stopped something that may be helping in some ways, and are now allowing your symptoms to return. If so, it makes ...
