This show leans heavily on its connection to the famous cookie brand to gloss over the fact that it's an otherwise unremarkable addition to the reality competition rotation. The format smacks of too many other baking and cooking contests, and aside from the curiosity factor of the particular cookies themselves, there's little that distinguishes this series from the numerous others like it.

Even so, confectionary enthusiasts who do watch will find that the bakers are diligent, creative, and skilled at their craft. Also likable is how the show incorporates the Girl Scout mission beyond the cookies themselves. Participants and others reflect on scouting memories, and current scouts discuss the program's benefits and share some of their marketing techniques with the bakers. The bottom line? Girl Scout Cookie Championship doesn't attempt to reinvent the wheel of reality kitchen contests, but a niche audience of Girl Scouts and cookie fans may want to watch for novelty's sake.
