Sometimes there are moments of true joy in life. Simple, unadulterated joy. Such as finding out that several of the classic Girl Scout cookies are now available in VEGAN! Yes, you are seeing this correctly. Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Patties (aka Tag-a-longs), Lemonades and Thanks-A-Lots are vegan in some regions. We happen to have hit it big on this one, cause Maryland has the vegan cookies and our next door neighbor’s little girl is selling them. Woo-hoo!
How does this work, you ask? It’s as simple as, well, cookies. In the USA, there are two bakeries making Girl Scout cookies. ABC Bakery makes the vegan options. And it helpfully says “vegan” on the nutrition facts, so it’s easy to spot, in case your local Girl Scouts aren’t sure who did their baking. You can see what I mean on this label for Thin Mints.
The ABC logo looks like the one on the label sample below…
Notice also that the ABC Bakery is all about sustainable palm oil. A real plus!
So, thank you, ABC Bakery and Girl Scouts of America! We have our supply in hand! OH – and you can also buy cookies to send to soldiers, as well. A nice way to say thank you. There are programs around the country for this, such as Operation Gratitude, Troop to Troops, and Operation Cookie. Your local scouting troop will know more about the program in your area!
