After much speculation when photos leaked a few months ago, Nestle officially confirmed it will make candy bars inspired by Girls Scouts of America cookie flavors, namely the unofficially declared favorite, Thin Mints.
Produced under the Girl Scouts of America license, Nestle announced the limited-edition candy bars will hit participating retail stores beginning on June 1 until September.
The three candy bar flavors include:
Thin MintsTM - Dark chocolate cookie wafers and mint chocolate crème, topped with airy crispies and a rich, dark chocolatey coating
Caramel & Coconut - Cookie wafers layered with coconut caramel crème and chewy caramel, topped with toasted coconut and drizzled with caramel stripes
Peanut Butter Crème - Cookie wafers layered with smooth peanut butter crème, topped with airy crispies and a creamy, chocolatey coating
Prices for the bars will vary by retailers, but the average price will be $1 per bar and $4 per box.
A limited amount were available for sale on the NestleCrunch Facebook page on Wednesday, however, Nestle sold out of candy bars during the pre-sale on Thursday.
The exclusive bars comes during the 100th year anniversary for the Girl Scouts, marking the first time candy inspired by the infamous cookies will be on the market.
When word of this irresistible combination of Nestle Crunch and Girl Scout Cookie flavors leaked earlier this year, consumers started calling, Nestle spokesperson Tricia Bowles said in a press release. One said he'd give us all of his money for Nestle Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars. Another said she'd do 'anything' to get her hands on some, and our retailers seem to feel the same way.
Last year, Girls Scouts of America sold more than $760 million in cookies.
