Girl Scout Cookie season is upon us. And, who doesn’t love a good Girl Scout Cookie? But, what Girl Scout Cookies are vegan? We’ve assembled a list to make it easy for you to order vegan Girl Scout Cookies this year.
Girl Scout Cookie season runs for six to eight weeks typically between January and April. If you’re in Las Vegas like us, then it’s already happening. On Feb. 1, regardless of where you are in the US, you can purchase cookies online. In addition, Girl Scouts have partnered with GrubHub to have your cookies delivered contact-free during the pandemic.
Buying Girl Scout cookies helps keep alive the Girl Scouts and their programs. Members decide what to do with their earnings, and donate 100 percent of the money to causes in the local community. It also helps to teach members about entrepreneurship and business skills.
What Girl Scout Cookies are Vegan?
The newest addition to the Girl Scout Cookie line-up is the Toast-Yay. Shaped like French toast, the Toast-Yay vegan Girl Scout Cookie is cinnamon goodness, with one side dipped in icing.
Around since our Girl Scout Cookie selling days, Thin Mints are vegan. These chocolate-coated mint cookies are one of our favorites. Stick ’em in the freezer for an extra cool crunch.
Not to be confused with the Lemon-Ups, the Lemonades are shortbread cookies with lemon icing on the top.
Peanut Butter Patties
Think peanut butter crisp coated in chocolate and you’ve got this sweet treat. Take note — while these seem to be the same as the Tagalongs, the latter version has dairy. Stick to the box labeled Peanut Butter Patties to enjoy the vegan version of this popular Girl Scout Cookie.
Girl Scout S’mores
A S’more cookie covered in chocolate? Yes, please. There are two versions of the Girl Scout S’more cookies — the one covered in chocolate by ABC Baker is vegan; the other is not. The vegan Girl Scout cookies features a graham cracker wrapped in crème icing and then dipped in chocolate.
