What are the differences between the new biscuits and the previous ones?
Our Traditional biscuit is still a classical vanilla biscuit with an updated design so that it is a perfect representation of the GGA Trefoil with the seven-pointed star.
In addition we have two more fantastic biscuits …
- the Mini Choc Chip … a bite sized crunchy biscuit filled with real chocolate chips in a snack size – perfect for a treat!
- the buttery Gluten Free shortbread … with a rich flavour that comes from high quality, pure Australian butter, making this a biscuit everyone will enjoy.
Why did we change our biscuit range?
A change in suppliers gives us the opportunity to try new ranges and offer more flavours and meet more dietary requirements! In response to demand, we are thrilled to offer a Gluten Free biscuit, a buttery shortbread and a bite sized Mini Choc Chip offering a treat sized biscuits that come packed in a box – perfect for sharing.
Our friends at MBC are looking forward to working with us in the upcoming years to create the best Girl Guide biscuit range.
Why have the prices changed?
You will notice that the retail price has increased. Having held prices consistent since 2011, we have increased the prices to reflect the higher costs associated with producing biscuits so we can maintain our ability to generate revenue for our Girl Guide organisation. In comparison to other great biscuits though,we think it is competitive especially given the cause of Girl Guides that we are raising funds for!
Are they suitable for people with allergies?
Our Girl Guide biscuits are produced in a factory that is free from peanuts and sesame, so all of our biscuits are safe for people with these allergies.
The new gluten-free biscuits are produced using processes that ensure that they are safe for coeliacs.
Allergens that are present in the factory include other tree nuts, milk, egg and soy, and as such these are potential cross-contact allergens that may be present in trace amounts in the biscuits.
Can I use the new biscuits in my favourite Girl Guide biscuit recipes from previous years?
Yes you absolutely can! We have maintained the original biscuit recipe, so you can make all your favourite recipes. And check out our recipes over on our Cooking Challenge page here
