No comments

 

Cookie season is upon us and, fortunately, those with special dietary restrictions won’t have to choose between great taste and specially needed options. Instead, cookie-lovers can indulge in popular Girl Scout cookie flavors like the masses. Those with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity can make haste in ordering packages of Toffee-Tastic—a gluten-free cookie option—from their local Girl Scout troop or online, so they can snack on this delectable treat throughout cookie season. This year celebrates the five-year anniversary of Toffee-Tastic’s rich, buttery cookies with sweet, crunchy toffee bits. And to top things off, these cookies are certified gluten-free by third-party organization NSF (National Sanitation Foundation), contain no high-fructose corn syrup, and have zero grams trans-fat.

For those in need of non-dairy treats, Girl Scout’s Thin Mint cookies are a perfect choice! In addition to being an ideal option for vegans, cookie-lovers can delight in the cookie’s crisp wafers covered in a chocolaty coating made with the natural oil of peppermint. In addition, Thin Mints are certified Kosher Pareve.

And for those in search of a clean/non-GMO treats, Girl Scout S’mores™ cookies is a winner. The crunchy graham sandwich cookies are made with creamy chocolate and a marshmallow-like filling that will transport you to times of savoring sticky, delicious s’mores around the campfire. This popular cookie is made with natural flavors and contains no artificial coloring, no high fructose corn syrup, no hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils, and contains verified non-GMO ingredients.

All Girl Scout cookies are kosher, as required by Girl Scouts of the USA, and are baked fresh for each annual cookie sale season. Each Girl Scout cookie package is stamped with a seasonal date that corresponds with each cookie season to ensure freshness. Toffee-Tastic and Girl Scout S’mores are available for $6 per package (note: an added cost is associated with the production of gluten-free and non-GMO cookies) and Thin Mints and all other Girl Scout cookies are available for $5 per package.
