New Girl Scout Cookies Go Gluten Free – and Online

By    |   Tuesday, 06 Jan 2015 07:44 AM

The Girl Scouts will be selling three new cookies along with their staple of favorites during their cookie-selling season from late-January through April. Two of the new munchies are gluten free.

Two of the new entries – Toffee-tastic, buttery cookies with toffee bits, and Trios, a mixture of peanut butter, chocolate chip and whole grain oats – are the gluten free additions, according to People magazine. The Girl Scouts tried out a gluten free chocolate chip Shortbread cookie in test markets last year.


The third new flavor, Rah-Rah Raisins, is an oatmeal raisin cookie made of whole grain oats, raisins, and Greek yogurt-flavored chunks, noted People.

This is the 98th year the Girl Scouts will be selling cookies, according to CNN. Girl Scouts of the USA CEO Anna Maria Chavez told the network that about 200 million boxes of cookies are sold by roughly 1.5 million scouts annually.

"Buying Girl Scout Cookies is about more than just handing over money for a box," said a statement on the Girls Scouts website. "It's about the skills a girl gains from interacting directly with you. It's about the experience of running her own cookie business and working with others. And it's why we encourage you to buy your cookies from a Girl Scout – the Cookie Professional – and not her parents."

The Girl Scouts are also enabling their members to sell cookies online for the first time through their "Digital Cookie" program, allowing their scouts to learn online marketing skills, according to Time magazine.

News about the new cookies seems to create some excited on social media Tuesday.
