Good news for those with a sweet tooth: Girl Scouts of the USA announced three new cookie flavors Monday, including two that are gluten-free.
- Toffee-tastic: a gluten-free butter cookie with toffee bits
- Trios: a gluten-free cookie with peanut butter, chocolate chips, and whole grain oats.
- Rah-Rah Raisins: an oatmeal raisin cookie with Greek yogurt–flavored chunks.
In January 2014, the Girl Scouts said 20 councils were testing a gluten-free chocolate-chip shortbread cookie. Now, the organization tweeted Monday, “For the first time in Girl Scout history, gluten-free cookies will be available nationwide from most councils.”

The announcement comes as the Girl Scouts are at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, showing off “Digital Cookie,” a new program that is supposed to enable youngsters to sell cookies online while learning marketable business and technology skills.
