I can’t believe I am finally saying it but it is that time of year! It is time to buy Gluten Free Girl Scout Cookies 2014! Well, at least some of us get to enjoy them, in some parts of the country you can now buy the newest addition to the Girl Scout Cookie list – Certified Gluten-Free by GIG – Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies. Not sure why the Girl Scouts decided to “test market” the cookies because apparently they are selling like Gluten Free hot cakes! (Umm …no-duh!)
I can tell you that you can download the Girl Scout Cookie app for your smartphone to track down the cookies near you but have some patience. It isn’t exactly working very well. I think it is overloaded with the overall demand of the yearly sale. I think I found out some better more direct information for you by using my inner Gluten Free cookie monster investigative skills. I was able to find out that the baker is ABC Bakers and not all Girl Scout Councils use this baker.
A full list of Girl Scout Council by state that use this baker and are selling the Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread Girl Scout Cookies is listed here. Honestly, your best bet is to call a friend or family member that lives in an area listed and ask them to order them or buy and ship them to you especially if you live in WA or OR.
Luckily for me I was able to score a bag from a very dear college friend, Sheila that lives in the Philly area. She sent me a bag and I couldn’t wait to rip them open and try them! They are bite size, flavorful little treats that are just big enough to quickly dunk into your coffee, milk or hot cocoa. I just wish that we could all enjoy them and be part of the Girl Scout Cookie fundraiser.
I have to say that it makes me a tad bit giddy this year to finally walk by, even virtually, a Girl Scout Cookie stand and to know that we – Gluten Free Foodies are included in the joy of Girl Scout Cookie Season!
So go … search, hunt, find and rip open your bag of Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies! Oh, but make sure you have your favorite beverage ready to go to dunk and devour! As we Girl Scouts say … always be prepared!
Gotta run and make a pot of my favorite coffee and get ready to dunk!
I will always have a place in my hear for the Girl Scouts. I was a Girl Scout, badges and all! I thought I would share one of my favorite memories at Girl Scout Camp around the campfire, multitasking, sewing or crafting and making plans for our next meal! Love the hat with my camp badges on it and the white knee high socks! Yikes!
I will forever have the Girl Scout Pledge branded in my memory …
Good luck and enjoy! Thanks Sheila!
