Good news for gluten-free lovers of Girl Scout Cookies: a brand-new gluten-free cookie is headed our way for the 2019 Girl Scout Cookie season.
The Caramel Chocolate Chip cookie joins fellow gluten-option Toffee-tastic, a buttery cookie with crunchy toffee bits that was introduced in 2015.
According to a Girl Scouts press release, both gluten-free varieties are offered only in select Girl Scout council markets for as long as supplies last and can only be purchased from a registered Girl Scout. And “reflecting the cost of production,” gluten-free cookies may be priced higher than other Girl Scout Cookies.
Because only registered Girl Scouts may sell Girl Scout Cookies, their availability is typically limited to the six- to eight-week period when girls are engaged in the program through their local council, so Girl Scout Cookie season is the time to stock up on these gluten-free goodies. The Girl Scout Cookie Program promotes girls’ development of entrepreneurial and life skills, and the earnings from cookie sales go toward experiences for the members.
