Gluten Free Girl Scout Cookies?

Well, it's that time of year again - Girl Scout Cookie time. In my previous life, I could easily eat a whole box of these yummy treats in about 5 minutes without thinking twice about the $7 the box cost. Too bad ALL the cookies contain Gluten. Order sheets started showing up in my office last week so I thought I would contact the Girl Scouts to see about the possibility of them offering a Gluten Free version of ANY of their cookies. Below is their response.

Dear Zach,
Thank you for your inquiry. We are contacted often with requests that we offer a cookie that addresses various food restrictions and we are always looking at whether we might be able to meet those needs. Gluten free is a frequent topic at our Research and Development meetings. We would be thrilled if we could develop a great tasting gluten free cookie that would be a good match for our Girl Scout cookie product line and gluten free will continue to be a part of our R & D discussions.
Thank you for supporting the Girl Scouts in your community.

Thank you,
Shelby Hudson
Cookie Customer Service

Let's hope for Thin Mints first!
