Girl Scouts announce new gluten free cookie flavor

Move over, Thin Mints — there's a new cookie in town. And this one is gluten free.

Girl Scouts of the USA announced a new flavor Monday. Available during the upcoming 2019 cookie season, Caramel Chocolate Chip "features rich caramel, semi-sweet chocolate chips and a hint of sea salt in a chewy cookie," according to a news release.

A serving is three cookies, which will set you back 170 calories.

It's been two years since the Girl Scouts unveiled a new cookie (the organization debuted two varieties of Girl Scout S'mores in 2016). The Caramel Chocolate Chip flavor joins the only other gluten-free variety in the lineup, Toffee-tastic, which was introduced in 2015. According to the release, the flavors will be sold with "limited availability in select areas." However, the organization promises that shoppers will have access to some kind of gluten-free offering in all markets.

The Girl Scout cookie family also includes Do-si-dos, Lemonades, Thanks-A-Lot cookies, Savannah Smiles, Tagalongs, Girl Scout S'mores, Trefoils, and of course, the ever-popular Samoas and Thin Mints. It'll be a while before scouts start lining up to sell the treats again, but customers can keep up to date with the free mobile Cookie Finder app.
