Costco Shoppers Swear These Gluten-Free Cookies Taste Just Like Thin Mints

May is Celiac Awareness Month (via Beyond Celiac), but you don't have to be on a gluten-free diet to appreciate the goodness of Goodie Girl's gluten-free, ethically- and sustainably-sourced Mint Cookies (via Goodie Girl). Goodie Girl cookies began as a pet project for music industry veteran Shira Berk, who was looking to "shift her creative energy into making great tasting treats for her kids and herself," according to the brand story. These yummy bites have been available at national supermarkets such as Stop & Shop, Acme, and Shoprite since at least as far back as early 2018 (via 

Now Costco is getting in on the Goodie Girl action, according to a May 18 Instagram post from @costo_doesitagain, which has 987,000 Costco shoppers hanging on its every word. From what those fans have to say in the comments, this was a great decision on Costco's part. But do these gluten-free cookies taste exactly like Girl Scout Thin Mints? Here's what those who've sampled the goods have to say about it. 

While nothing can take the place of Girl Scout cookies Thin Mint cookies, these gluten-free copycats available at Costco come close

Costco's gluten-free selection just keeps getting better and better. In early 2021, for example, the wholesale club behemoth introduced these gluten-free and keto-friendly mini-cookies, which Costco shoppers were completely psyched about. More recently, it introduced these gluten-free chicken sausage links to rave reviews from Costco shoppers. Now, it appears that Costco is stocking Goodie Girl's Mint Cookies, according to a May 18 post by Costco-stanning Instagrammer @costo_doesitagain. And if the comments on that post are any indication, then it's safe to say that many Costco shoppers are beside themselves with excitement.

As to whether they taste just like Thin Mints (Girl Scouts' most beloved and popular cookie, according to the organization's website), the answer might depend on whom you ask. One follower came forward with an enthusiastic "YES they do!!" But others weren't quite in agreeance.

But here's the thing about that: Chances are, if you've ever tasted Girl Scout Thin Mints, then you probably don't need to follow a gluten-free diet. If you haven't tasted Girl Scout Thin Mints because you're gluten-free, then it would appear that whether or not they taste like "the real thing" is nowhere near as relevant as whether they taste good. And apparently, they do. "One of the best gluten-free cookies I've tasted," wrote one Instagram user. "These are the best," wrote another.
