O Tempora! O Mores! Gluten-Free Girl Scout Cookies.

O Tempora! O Mores! Gluten-Free Girl Scout Cookies.

It’s Girl Scout Cookie season, and pert pigtailed peddlers are pushing Peanut Butter Patties® on pavements across America. But somehow it’s not the same. Those yummy trans fats are gone, and now Girl Scout Cookies have gone Gluten-Free. What’s next, Kale Thin Mints and Quinoa Samoas?

Like everything else, Girl Scout Cookies cost more, but that creates a learning experience. For the first time you can charge your cookies, so we’re teaching America’s young women that it’s okay to spend money you don’t have. There’s also the chance to learn 21st century Orienteering skills through  map reading downloading the Official Girl Scout Cookie Finder Mobile App. And any Scout who sells enough Gluten-Free Girl Scout Cookies earns the coveted Pseudoscience Merit Badge.
