Gluten-free? No worries! Check out Toffee-tastics! Vegan? They have you covered with the classic Thin Mints!

Not only are Girl Scout cookies DELICIOUS, you can enjoy them guilt-free knowing that the Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-led business in the world, teaching these young ladies skills they will use for a lifetime.

Not sure which flavor is YOUR flavor? A quick overview and cheat sheet:

Samoas are decadent with a crisp ring cookie coated in caramel, sprinkled with toasted coconut and dipped and drizzled with dark chocolate.

Thin Mints are Vegan and a GS classic with a minty chocolate-covered wafer. They are crisp, light and delicious. I also recommend popping them in the freezer for a cool treat.

Trefoils are a light and buttery shortbread cookie. They are simple and sweet.

Do-si-dos are for your peanut butter lovers with a crunchy oatmeal sandwich filled with peanut buttery goodness.

Savannah Smiles are lemon wedge cookies with a zesty citrus flavor and powdered sugar finish.

Tagalongs bring together two classic favorites with a cookie base, peanut butter layers and a chocolate coating.

Rah-Rah Raisins are a spin on oatmeal raisin cookies with chunks of Greek yogurt.

Toffee-Tactic are perfect for gluten-free diets with a buttery cookie filled with sweet toffee bits.
