Hey everyone, this is my first post since being diagnosed with Celiac in December (2013). The forum has been incredibly helpful, and I'm excited to become part of the community. Now, on to the post... It's unfortunate that my first post is a negative one, but ever since finding out about the pilot program for gluten-free girlscout cookies a few weeks ago, I had been dying to see what they came up with - I'm a thin mint addict every year when they come out, and love most of their other cookies, so I figured they'd be able to put together a phenomenal gluten-free cookie. WRONG. My coworker, who's daughter is a Girl Scout, brought in one single Girl Scout gluten-free cookie for me to sample today. They only gave her one sample cookie in a sealed plastic bag, and knowing I had just been diagnosed with Celiac, she kindly saved it for me to sample. It was REALLY bad. Super sugary sweet, crumbled into a very fine powder in my mouth, and had a strange flavor that reminded me of something ..... had me racking my brain for a minute..... then I came up with it - it tasted exactly like candy cigarettes, the white sugary ones. These: That is not how a cookie should taste. The only good part was the chocolate chips. Anyways, I'm extremely disappointed. Try them out if you must, but I just want to save some people the 3.75 or whatever they will charge for them. I can all but guarantee they won't sell them nation-wide next year because whoever tries them during this pilot season is going to absolutely hate them.
