90s kids, get ready to ROOOOAR and take a bite out of your childhood nostalgia.
FYE and Nickelodeon have teamed up to bring us an authentic version of the Rugrats‘ delight: the Reptar Bar
Fans of the TV series will remember the green-frosting-filled chocolate bars, in the shape of the toddler gang’s favorite building smashing dinosaur. And like Tommy, Chucky, Phil, Lil, and Angelica’s candy of choice, the real Reptar bars will also turn your mouth green.
They aren’t shaped like Reptar, but that isn’t stopping people from throwing as much cash as possible into the register and savoring the chocolately, frosting-filled memories of Saturday morning cartoon-watching.
If you’re jonesin’ for a kick of nostalgia, there’s a couple of caveats you should know about.
FYE is selling individual bars in-store only, and only while supplies last. But if you’re not anywhere near one of FYE’s 250 locations, you can pre-order the candy on their wesbite. Unfortunately they won’t ship until December 10 – so, you’re gonna have to be patient, but at least you know what you can ask for in your stocking this holiday season.
Additionally, in a move of purely evil marketing genius, the preorder comes as a box of 24. So you’re going to have almost a month’s worth of chocolate at your disposal, unless you’re feeling generous.
Finally, because the candy is packaged in bulk, your childhood reminiscing will set you back $69.99 (unless you’re an FYE member, in which case a box is $62.99). WORTH IT!
And if that isn’t enough, FYE is also accepting pre-orders for Reptar cereal.
SAY WHAT??? For $12.99 (oof) you can get a box of something that looks a little similar to Froot Loops. This offering is definitely unlike the actual depiction of Tommy’s breakfast craving, which are “round, mean, and turn milk green.”
So if you’ve got some cash to spare, and can get to a location, get as many bars as you can feasibly fit into your pantry. And please send a couple our way … purely for research purposes only.
