Gluten Free Girl Scout Cookies

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone has tried the gluten free Trios Girl Scout Cookies? They are certified gluten free, but the oats aspect makes me a bit nervous. Has anyone had a bad reaction or tried them and not had a reaction? I'm always on the lookout for treats for my three year old that has celiac, but I never give him anything that I'm not sure of. Thanks!

Ummm....I ate a whole bag :).  They were just OK. A friend gave them to me because her daughter is selling them. But, since I don't get too many symptoms, I'm not sure that's too helpful for you....

I am unsure where they source their oats, if they use the mechanical sorting method then I would not trust them. Some celiacs react to oats regardless of gluten in them or not. Since your child is just 3 your might be better off playing it safe for a few more years and sticking to safe grain free treats like Enjoy Life bars and cookies, Gerbs Dried Fruits (dates and figs are great for kids and dried papaya is like natures gummy bear). As a parent it is your call if you want to risk it or not.

if they claim to be " certified", they are testing for gluten.  I have had them and was fine.  

 

There is a gf brand of thin mint style cookies that are great.  I have gotten them at Walmart.  I think Trader Joe's has some, too.

My daughter is currently selling Girl Scout cookies.  The Trios are gluten free -- certified gluten free.  They are made in dedicated gluten free facility.   Hubby eats them.  I have eaten a few.  I have diabetes....dang, so consuming the whole package is not going to happen.  Consuming any cookies is not a good option for me.  My gluten-eating kid likes them!  

Thanks for supporting Girl Scouts!
