A new food competition looks to make something even more delicious out of the popular Girl Scout Cookies. Food Network’s Girl Scout Cookie Championship will challenge professional bakers to transform their favorite Girl Scout Cookies into decadent dessert creations.
Hosted by actress Alyson Hannigan (How I Met Your Mother, the American Pie franchise), the four-episode series is currently under production and set to premiere in early 2020 during Girl Scout Cookie Season.
Competitors will be judged by Nacho Aguirre and Katie Lee, who will be joined each episode by a rotating third judge, including confirmed panelist Carla Hall. Hannigan, Lee, and Hall are all alums of the Girl Scout program.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Girl Scouts of the USA to celebrate the Girl Scout Cookie Program and those iconic cookies that are anticipated all year long,” says Courtney White, President of Food Network. “Now fans will be doubly rewarded with the coinciding launch of Girl Scout Cookie Championship, showcasing bold, show-stopping creations starring beloved treats like Thin Mints and Tagalongs/Peanut Butter Patties.”
“Food Network’s Girl Scout Cookie Championship gives consumers one more reason to love Girl Scout Cookie season and presents a great opportunity to better understand what it means to be a Girl Scout,” says Girl Scouts of the USA CEO Sylvia Acevedo. “In addition to the delicious treats the show will be serving up, viewers will gain insight into all the amazing things Girl Scouts do: having adventurous outdoor experiences, exploring the latest in STEM, boldly creating positive change in the world – and of course, participating in the largest girl-led entrepreneurship program in the world: the Girl Scout Cookie Program.”
