It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
No, it’s not Christmas again. It’s Girl Scout Cookie season! That’s right — it’s already time to prepare to fight off gangs of screaming children parked outside the grocery store, Target, and wine stores (editor’s note: Scouts, I guarantee you’ll make some killer sales if you set up shop outside a wine retailer) who are begging you to purchase boxes of cookies, which is really all part of an evil plan to foil your 2019 healthy-eating habits.
I’m kidding. Everyone freakin’ loves Girl Scout Cookies! And to celebrate the start of 2019, the Girl Scouts have released a brand-new cookie for all of us to indulge in. Drum roll please: Introducing the gluten-free Caramel Chocolate Chip cookie! The newest cookie features decadent caramel, chocolate chips, and a hint of sea salt. Umm, sign me right up!
This is the second gluten-free cookie option the Girl Scouts offer; the other is the gluten-free Toffe-tastic cookie. The gluten-free Caramel Chocolate Chip cookie joins an already stellar lineup of classic Girl Scout Cookies, including Savannah Smiles, Thanks-A-Lot, Lemonades, Do-si-dos, Trefoils, Tagalongs, Samoas, Thin Mints, and Girl Scout S’mores.
However, there is one catch. Because the newest cookie is a gluten-free option, the price of the box may be a tad bit higher than your average, gluten-filled varieties. Check with your local Girl Scouts for exact prices, though!
