Girl Guides revamp cookie recipes
The Girl Guides of Canada have announced they're trimming trans fats from their chocolate and vanilla cookies - two years after the US Girl Scouts eliminated use of the artery-clogging oils in their sweets.
REGINA - A new recipe has been baked up for a much-loved Canadian treat - the Girl Guide cookie.
Girl Guides of Canada says that starting in the spring, the classic chocolate and vanilla sandwich cookies will have 90 per cent less trans fat.
The group says it has been working closely with cookie baker Dare Foods to reduce the trans fat content while maintaining the same taste.
The Girl Guide cookie originated in Regina in 1927 and more than four million are sold each year.
