I started Goodie Girl because I wanted to share the cookies I love with my family and friends. Since I started Goodie Girl, we’ve been committed to making great tasting, wholesome cookies that you can feel good about enjoying and sharing. That’s what you’ve come to expect from us.

We recently voluntarily recalled a limited number of Goodie Girl Magical Animal Crackers produced during a limited time period. The batch of product we recalled was erroneously packaged with cookies from a non-gluten free brand. As a mom and the founder, I recognize the significance of this issue. When we learned about the potential problem, we immediately took action – we alerted the FDA, as well as our retail partners to remove the product from shelves.

So, where do we stand today? Our team has been working tirelessly to understand what happened and to immediately put in place measures to prevent a future occurrence. We have taken proactive steps to further strengthen our manufacturing process, particularly with regard to the handling of allergens and products with allergens.

Specifically, we have:
• Permanently restricted access to high-risk area of the facility to highly-trained operators
• Implemented an additional QA line check prior to gluten-free product runs, appointing a dedicated QA operator to inspect lines between product runs
• Conducted a retraining across entire employee base
• Installed color-coded light bars inside the facility to clearly alert operators to which product is running at any given time

We know this is a serious concern for our consumers. We take our responsibility to heart and are redoubling our efforts to not only produce products that you love but that you can feel confident about.

If you have questions, please reach out to

We will get back to you as soon as possible.

Thank you for your continued support of Goodie Girl

    My Grandmother years ago worked for Nabisco.
    She made the chocolate cookie part of the Oreo sandwich cookie.
    After I became Gluten free I missed those Oreos.
    Until we found your Chocolate Mint Creme sandwich cookies.
    Don’t miss Oreos any more.

    I am so glad I tried your cookies. I bought the Mint cookies and could not believe how the flavor was. I have not heard of your brand, but will now buy them . I found them at Walmart and didn’t see the pumpkin cookies. I hope I can find them because I love pumpkin and that would be nice to have for fall.. Again thank you

    Absolutely delicious Mint Cookies! I have tried lots of other gluten free cookies and some were good, but most seemed to lack flavor or were dry and crumbly. All were expensive, so it was hard to justify buying them as they were just ok. My son bought me a box of your Mint Cookies and I found the cookie I had been looking years for – they are fabulous! Shira, thanks for leaving your other day jobs and deciding to make cookies. Don

  4. I just purchased the Chocolate Mint Creme on a whim and so glad I did. They are absolutely amazing! They are full of delicious authentic flavor and I’m excited to try other flavors. Would love a lemon cookie. Thank you for caring and making a healthy, delicious product. Can’t wait to share with my daughter-in-law.

    I love all your cookies, but the Cocoa Slims are my favorite. I don’t see them on your website anymore, and the only place I can find them are TJ Maxx and their affiliates. Are they being discontinued?

    Completely obsessed with your cookies, especially love the seasonal sandwich cookies!!! Thank you for giving me amazing gluten free options! If you’re looking for any ideas, how about a wedding cake sandwich cookie yum!!!! Will continue to get all your products even if a wedding cake cookie never comes because they are incredible!
