They’re finally here. After months of online rumors, consumer pleas, rave reviews and a historic Facebook pre-sale online program that sold out inventory in less than 24 hours, Nestle® Crunch® Girl Scout Candy Bars have at last hit retail stores nationwide.
Available for a limited time only, the Nestle Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars, manufactured under a national license from Girl Scouts of the USA, are a sweet reinvention of the three most popular Girl Scout Cookie flavors:
• 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; and
• Peanut Butter Crème—Cookie wafers layered with smooth roasted peanut butter crème, topped with airy crispies and a creamy, chocolatey coating
Earlier this week before the nationwide retail launch, Dylan’s Candy Bar flagship in New York City received the first official retail delivery of candy bars. Owner Dylan Lauren, daughter of fashion icon Ralph Lauren and author Ricky Lauren, was on hand to greet the enthusiastic candy bar seekers as a Nestle Crunch delivery truck made the highly anticipated first stop in Manhattan.
“Dylan’s Candy Bar is thrilled to give fans the very first official store opportunity to purchase Nestle Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars,” said Lauren.
She then unveiled a 45-foot window display at her signature candy store as she personally hosted the morning’s colorful celebration.
From New York to Los Angeles, the enthusiasm continues for Nestle Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars. One dedicated fan bid an astonishing $650 for the only first-edition set of three candy bars from the first production runs at an auction held at Galerie Michael in Beverly Hills. Certified by Heritage Auctions, the world’s largest collectibles auctioneer and third largest auction house, the set of candy bars was appraised at $500—nearly 200 times the retail value of the bars, legitimizing Nestle Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars as the most valuable candy bars in the world.
The frenzy and passionate bidding continued, as fans started a bidding war over an original Renoir oil painting of the Nestle Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars. It was created by acclaimed French artist Alexandré Renoir, great-grandson of legendary Impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir. On hand to debut his artistic interpretation, Renoir revealed the original oil painting earlier this week at a gallery in Beverly Hills. One hundred percent of the Nestle Crunch-themed auction proceeds will go toward the Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles.
“We’ve seen no limit to the excitement for these irresistible treats that bring together the best of Nestle Crunch and Girl Scout Cookies,” said spokesperson Tricia Bowles of Nestlé USA Confections & Snacks. “Many thanks to our enthusiastic partners at Galerie Michael, Heritage Auctions, and to the wonderfully talented Alexandré Renoir.”
