Calling all cookie lovers, the most wonderful time of the year is upon us—Girl Scout Cookie time!
It's the time of year when those wonderful red and green and yellow boxes find their way into offices and grocery store entrances nationwide, bringing happiness to those young and old, and now, even the gluten-free.
The newest Girl Scout cookies, Trios, are a sweet mix of chocolate and peanut butter nestled between whole-grain oats. The best part? They're gluten-free! (They're not Girl Scouts' only gluten-free offering. Toffee-tastic is also sans gluten.)
Being big cookies lovers, we had to pass some samples of the new Trios around the office. While some CL staffers found the texture and consistency of the cookie to be a hard adjustment for their gluten-adoring taste buds, one staffer praised the Girl Scout organization for trying to include gluten-free eaters and for using whole grains. "I'm glad they're making an effort to A) be inclusive and B) go whole-grain!"
Gluten-free or not, you can never have enough cookie options, and we think that this one is worth trying.
