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
- Is available in a 5 ounce resealable foil pouch with
12 pouches per case
