Yippie! A Gluten Free Cookie!

9416763620_170580907f_b

It’s cookie season again and GSCM is proud to introduce ABC Bakers’ new Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread cookie! By introducing this new cookie, we’re inviting consumers who have had to eliminate the standard Girl Scout cookies from their diet to join us in supporting local Girl Scouts.

There are no artificial flavors, no artificial colors, no high-fructose corn syrup, no palm oil and no hydrogenated oils in this cookie. It is made with real chocolate chips and real butter and comes in a 5-ounce re-sealable foil pouch package with 12 packages per case. The price per package is $5.00

We invite troops to participate in this year’s pilot program for this exciting addition to the ABC Bakers Girl Scout cookie lineup! Troops interested in selling the Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread cookie must place their order before 5pm on September 30, 2013.

These cookies will not count towards the troops cookie sale figures. These cookies will not be listed in SNAP. These cookies will not be sold on the girls order card. Girls will not earn credit towards any recognitions on their Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread cookie sales. Each troop will earn a flat $0.68 in proceeds per package of Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread cookies sold. 

A free sample package of the Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread cookies will  be given to each troop during cookie training.

Only troops that order before 5pm on September 30, 2013 will have Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread cookies for booth sales. The Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread cookie will be distributed to participating troops in December 2013 / January 2014.

These cookies are not returnable.

Troops must meet the following criteria in order to participate in the gluten free pilot:

      • Leaders and girls must be registered for the 2014 membership year
      • Troops must have completed a separate ACH form for the pilot cookies which will be withdrawn on February 17, 2014

  1. When will we place additional orders for the gluten free cookies? We order by September 30th to have them available for booth sales starting when exactly? October when the other booths start? When do we place another order to fulfill the door to door sales we will be getting for delivery in January/February?

    • When will we place additional orders for the gluten free cookies?

      It is a one shot deal. You order what you want to sell and once they are gone…they are gone.

      We order by September 30th to have them available for booth sales starting when exactly? October when the other booths start?

      Late December early January, 2014. Booth Sales begin November 8th. These cookies are not scheduled to be delivered to the council until Late December early January.

      When do we place another order to fulfill the door to door sales we will be getting for delivery in January/February?

      You can only order once before September 30th. There will be no extras ordered. We will order only what troops reserve.

  2. The only ACH form that I have completed is for the regular cookie sale. Is there a different ACH form for the Gluten Free Program? Are the ACH debit dates different for the Gluten Free program than the regular program due to the early ordering, but late delivery? – Thank you!

  3. This really should be updated for the new gluten free cookie – I loved the chocolate chip shortbread, but it is no longer available!
