Packaging News - Girl Scouts Include Gluten Free This Year

Girl Scout Cookies have been a favorite of cookie lovers for decades. Every year, consumers can hardly wait until the time comes to buy those delicious peanut butter cookies, Thin Mints, Shortbread, and other varieties. In 2015, things will be a little different as cookie selling will take to the Internet with the Digital Cookie, personalized cookie websites where girls will be able to learn people skills, goal setting, money management, and more. According to the latest packaging news, some of the changes coming up this year include the addition of three new varieties, the Toffee-tastic, Trios, and Rah-Rah Raisins. According to a recent article at USA Today, the Trios and Toffee-tastics were added because of clients desiring options that are gluten-free. In recent years, products that are gluten-free have become a huge market for those who suspect it to trigger stomach problems or contribute to such conditions as celiac disease, asthma, and autism. According to their website, Girl Scouts will celebrate National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend from February 27 through March 1 of this year. During this time, the girl scouts will sell cookies through the new Digital Cookie websites, at booths, and door to door. For those who aren't worried about gluten and are anticipating those mouth-watering Samoas and Caramel deLites, not to worry! All of the old favorites are still on the menu. At Markem-Imaje, we know that more and more companies are adding gluten-free products to their offerings.
