Yippie! A Gluten Free Cookie!
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- Troops must have completed a separate ACH form for the pilot cookies which will be withdrawn on February 17, 2014
