Get your Troop's sample of our new Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies!
It’s almost Girl Scout Cookie time! This year ABC Bakers is partnering with select Girl Scout councils across the country, including Girl Scouts of Minnesota and Wisconsin Lakes and Pines, to offer the 1st ever gluten free Girl Scout cookie – a bite size GlutenFree Chocolate Chip Shortbread cookie. This pilot has been developed in response to volunteers, girls and consumers who have asked for a gluten free Girl Scout cookie.
ABC Bakers, part of Interbake Foods, partnered with Girl Scouts of the USA in an initiative designed to invite consumers who have previously had to eliminate the standard Girl Scout Cookies from their diet to join in this great American tradition. The new cookie allows Celiac Disease sufferers and those avoiding gluten to support the efforts of Girl Scouts as they enjoy a product created just for them. Celiac Disease can affect both children and adults and as of this time, there’s no cure – but following a strict gluten free diet can help manage symptoms.
“Our new Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread cookie tastes delicious,” says Mary Alice Callaway, Vice President of Sales for ABC Bakers. “And this flavor has proven to be popular in the retail gluten free cookie market.” Available in a 5-ounce, resealable foil pouch, these cookies have no artificial colors, no artificial flavors, no high fructose corn syrup, no palm oil and no hydrogenated
ABC Bakers is a proud participant in the Celiac Sprue Association® (CSA) Recognition Seal Program. The CSA Recognition Seal represents critical review of the manufacturing processes to provide risk-free choices for gluten free consumers. Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread will sell for $5 per package.
