Dairy-Free, Egg-Free Girl Scout Cookies

My dear hubby gets the credit for this find. I could not imagine not having his full support on this food allergy adventure. He is just as cautious and careful as I am, sometimes more. He sure makes our job, of keeping Miles safe, a lot easier.  I love that guy.

Recently he called me from work and said there were some Girl Scout Cookies that appeared to be milk-free. So we ordered all three kinds and all have been fine for our anaphylactic son. I don't think Miles knows how cool this is. We're talking GIRL SCOUT COOKIES!

All three milk-free boxes are shown above. Lemonades, Thanks a Lot, and Cinna-Spins. I, of course, prefer the Thanks a Lot as they involve chocolate! The chocolate is made with cocoa alkali.

All three types contain wheat and soy. So these might be worth a shot for those with egg allergies, too!

Hope you can enjoy these treats!

Our local Girl Scouts changed cookie companies and this was the first year that my 17-year-old son was able to have GS cookies, too. He's allergic to egg, peanut, and tree nut, and he was able to have all 3 of the varieties that you bought, plus the Thin Mints. It was very exciting!! I wish these were available year round (and that they were a little less expensive.

Hi Linda,

Thanks for visiting. Wow, I didn't realize the cookies being allergen-free was a new thing. Well, I'm glad we found them! Maybe we should have stocked up. I just bought those three. Give your son a big hug for me. It get a little sad for kids who haven't outgrown by his age. But I'm sure he's a great happy kid regardless. :) Happy Easter!
