Little Brownie Bakers

Girl Scout Cookies Coming to Food Network

May 19, 2011, noon

Have you ever wondered how your favorite Samoas® Girl Scout Cookies are made? Those tender vanilla cookies, covered with real caramel, rolled in toasted coconut and striped with a rich, chocolaty coating, are enjoyed by countless Girl Scout cookie lovers each year. But how do all those ingredients come together to make such a tasty snack?

The answer will be revealed next Saturday, May 28, when the classic cookie takes over the airwaves at the Food Network.

Samoas® will be one of several American classics featured on a special one-hour "All-American Eats" segment on the Food Network's "Unwrapped" series. The popular show visited the Louisville bakery to film how Little Brownie Bakers makes Samoas® – a brand name cookie so popular it has 400,000+ Facebook "likes." Viewers will get a behind-the-scenes peek at the copper kettles filled with creamy caramel and how the cookies "earn" their distinctive chocolaty stripes.

Each week, “Unwrapped” uncovers behind-the-scenes details on classic American food. Additional classics that will be featured in the “Unwrapped” segment include Coca-Cola, Twinkies and Hungry Jack, among others.

"Unwrapped" is hosted by Marc Summers, who has previously hosted Nickelodeon's "Double Dare" as well as ABC-TV's "Home Show," Lifetime's "Our Home" and the Food Network's "Ultimate Recipe Showdown" series.
