The wait is over; gluten-free Girl Scout cookies have arrived!
The Girl Scouts are pilot testing their first-ever gluten-free cookie in select areas across the U.S. Luckily, the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) is located in one of the pilot test areas and we were able to get our hands on the new bite-size Chocolate Chip Shortbread.
The cookies are certified gluten-free and have the perfect amount of chocolate chips – not too many, but not too few. The texture is comparable to some other gluten-free cookies on the market, but these do crumble a bit. While these cookies are considered bite-size, I think they’re actually the perfect size. Four of the shortbread cookies are 150 calories – not bad for cookies at all. They’re a great way to satisfy that sweet tooth!
If you’re in one of the test areas, I highly recommend giving these cookies a try. (You can locate troops selling the gluten-free cookies here.) According to the Girl Scouts’ website, ABC Cookies (the makers of the gluten-free cookie) will conduct research following the cookie sale season to determine if they’ll roll the products out nationwide.
