My daughter is allergic to the whole legume family, especially peanuts and soy. There is one type of GS cookies she can have according to the ingredients and those are the Lemon pastry cookies. She had them a couple of times this week and within an hour after started having a slight wheeze. Obviously, no more GS cookies for her...anyone esle having this experience?

No similar experience, just a suggestion. Stay away from the cookies. You know which ones are safe for your child and stick to them.
I think it was tough for us but we got used to a limited selection of foods safe for DS and we kept anything else out of the house.

The only ones that I know to be safe are the Thin Mints made by Little Debbie bakeries.

Hi Karen,
I think you mean Thin Mints by "Little Brownie Bakers"? Just a clarification. Little Debbie products are labeled "May contain" or "Processed on....
Only Little Brownie Bakers & ABC Bakery produce Girl Scout cookies.
Stay safe!

Yes, it is the thin mints that are the only safe ones for our PA children. I have done alot of research on that one.
Good luck, be careful.

In Canada, we are very lucky. Our girl guide cookies are safe as they are made by DARE FOODS in a nut-free facility.

Can some of you clarify...you say the thin mints are the only ones you would have your PA child eat.,,why not the lemon pastry ones...according to label they look safe? I actually suspect something soy related to these cookies but would like to verify.

Hi Darthcleo,
I know the Canadian ones are made in a nut-free plant, but I am not sure about soya. hmmm..
Maybe someone else knows? Or you could either email DARE at [email]dmitchell@darefoods.com[/email] or phone them at 1-800-668-3273

Ok, here is the "skinny" on GS Cookies. The GS cookies come from two different bakeries - Little Brownie and ABC. My dd is selling ABC made cookies and the carmel, thin mint, friendship circles, lemon ones and animial treasures are all safe for PA/TNA. The Little Brownie made cookies offer only safe Thin Mints.
I am not sure how the cookies are distributed - an earlier thread on this made it sound like the Little Brownie ones were often what West Coast girls were offering. We are in the Midwest, and as I said selling ABC. Both boxes are clearly marked as fair as allergy info and what bakery they come from. That info is also on the order sheets.
I am not able to help out with soy info - sorry. And I am only familiar with US Girl Scout cookies, not Canada's Girl Guides.

Lisa, You are right, I meant Little Brownie bakeries. I knew it didn't look right when I typed it. Thanks for the clarification.
