I’m pretty sad that my stock of Girl Scout Cookies has run out. My youngest is a Daisy Scout and we had access to buying as many boxes as we could healthily ingest! Now that they’re gone, it’s hard to believe I need to wait a whole year for the next shipment.
Well, breaking news…my dreams have come true, in a way! After months of speculation and mouth-watering rumors, Nestlé® Crunch® confirmed it has created the new Nestlé Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars, designated “the world’s most valuable candy bars” by the world’s largest auction house of collectibles, Heritage Auctions. Having officially authenticated the first set of the three limited edition Nestlé Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars, Heritage Auctions has appraised the bars at $500, an amount almost 200 times greater than the bars’ suggested retail price — making them the most valuable candy bars currently in existence.Inspired by the three most popular flavors of Girl Scout Cookies, Nestlé Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars are produced under license from Girl Scouts of the USA and come in three varieties:
- Thin Mints™ – 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
“When word of this irresistible combination of Nestlé Crunch and Girl Scout Cookie flavors leaked earlier this year, consumers started calling,” said spokesperson Tricia Bowles, Nestlé USA, Confections & Snacks. “One said he’d give us all of his money for Nestlé 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. Fans should be ready to buy “the world’s most valuable candy bars” before they are all gone!”My Take: They taste exactly like the cookies with a crispy wafer crunch that is out of this world. My favorite is the Thin Mint, I received my samples and took them to my daughter’s girl scout troop and their eyes widened with utter delight! The peanut butter cream was smooth and buttery, while not a huge fan of the Samoa, the caramel/coconut combination was quite yummy! We will be stocking up on these come June!
The Nestlé Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars will be available as limited edition candy bars this summer at participating retail stores nationwide, beginning June 1 through September.
