WHAT?!? Gluten Free Girl Scout Cookies! Yes!

Article Credit: ABC Bakers

At ABC Bakers, we believe that everyone should be able to support the Girl Scout Cookie Program.  So we’ve developed a delicious new bite size Girl Scout cookie that’s 100% gluten free – and we’re welcoming a whole group of people to the cookie sale.  ABC Bakers will be working with a select group of Girl Scout councils to pilot the new cookie as part of the 2013-14 Cookie Sale.

About the Cookie: Gluten Free Goodness

Since it’s estimated that three million people have problems when they eat foods that contain gluten*, ABC and our council partners expect this cookie to be a huge success. Our new bite size Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread cookie:

  • Is made with real chocolate chips and real butter
  • Contains no artificial flavors, no artificial colors, no
    high fructose corn syrup, no palm oil, and no
    hydrogenated oils
  • Is available in a 5 ounce resealable foil pouch with
    12 pouches per case

  1. Yippee! That's what I'm talkin about! I'm tired of buying chic thin mints for my hubby and not being able to eat them. I love GS, sold cookies to my way to camp for years as a young girl. Want to support you. Thanks!
