I will add some details to your report. I am a gluten free Cookie Dad for my daughters troop and we have the GF cookies for sale. Overall I am very glad they have a GF option for Girl Scout cookies. I am interested to see if they will expand the market for these cookies. Girls Scouts works with two bakers to make cookies and each council is free to chose either one. These cookies are made by ABC Bakers, part of Interbake. The other bakery is Little Brownie Bakers, A Kelllogg company. The two bakers offer the Thin Mints. ABC made the GF cookies for this year. I have the ones with eggs if they made two versions. They have Rice/tapioca/guar gum/baking soda/potato starch/xanthum gum flour, butter, dried cane sugar, chocolate chips, water, vanilla extract, salt cocoa powder and egg whites.
The price is dependent on your local council, we are selling them for $4 per package and they are outside the "normal" cookie sales stream. I assume this is because the have have a higher cost. The money the girls earn is split between the council and the troop. the troop gets 60-70 cents per package sold, the baker get about $0.80 to 1.00 per box and the council get the difference. The Council money supports the councils programs. In my area this includes the programs and camps as well and the overall administration. The girls can do whatever they want with the money they earn and it ranges from buying dog food for shelters to buying supplies for troop activities to taking trips.
