Review: Gluten Free Girl Scouts Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies

As a Celiac with the opportunity to try the highly anticipated gluten free Girl Scout cookie that launched this year, I feel it is my duty to the gluten free community and to the Girl Scouts foundation to provide feedback. I first blogged about the possibility of the Girl Scouts launching a gluten free cookie in June 2012 HERE and am excited that progress has been made!

First and foremost I would like to thank the Girl Scouts of the United States of America for acknowledging those with a gluten sensitivity, gluten intolerance and/or Celiac Disease. Speaking on behalf of the gluten free community, we are excited for the opportunity  to order a box of Girl Scout cookies, just like everyone else.
