Girl Scouts to Debut Two New Gluten Free Cookies

Happy New Year everyone!  Hope everyone survived the holidays and did not accidentally get glutened.

Have you made your New Year’s resolutions yet?  Was one of them to lose weight?  Sorry, I am about to tempt you and test your resolve right now.

I just learned that the Girl Scouts will be debuting two new gluten-free cookies this year. The first is called Toffee-Tastic and features sweet crunchy toffee bits. The second cookie is called Trios and features chocolate chips in a peanut butter, oatmeal cookie.
