@NestleUSA and @GirlScouts have teamed up! #CandyBars #ThinMints #Caramel #PeanutButter #Review




As if Nestlé® Crunch® couldn't tempt us enough.  After months of speculation, Nestlé's has announced the new line of candy bars! 

We all know and love our annual girl scout cookies!  Our time with our cookies is literally short and sweet.  They are gone all too soon and we have to wait another year for the mouth watering sweets. 

This June, for the second year in a row, we can now enjoy our favorite Girl Scout Cookies until September!  Not in a box sold outside your local grocery store by those cute little darlings but inside!  Three of our favorites have graduated to the next level, candy bars! 


·         Thin Mints™ – Dark chocolate cookie wafers and mint chocolate crème, topped with airy crispies and a rich, dark chocolatey coating


·         Caramel & Coconut (Samoas) – Cookie wafers layered with coconut caramel crème and chewy caramel, topped with toasted coconut and drizzled with caramel stripes

 

·         Peanut Butter Crème (Tagalongs) – Cookie wafers layered with smooth peanut butter crème, topped with airy crispies and a creamy, chocolatey coating
 
I was fortunate enough to get a sneak taste of them for strictly reviewing purposes... really... Some one has to make sure they aren't dangerous to eat!
 
Let me tell you! I really liked them! Who wouldn't?  I would swear I was biting into Thin Mints™, Samoa's and Tagalongs!  For a few extra months, we get to enjoy our Girl Scout Cookies in a new way. 
 
Already, these tasty treats have made waves!

  1. Did you guys not have these available last year? The Thin Mint are so ridiculously addicting. I might have bought out our Walgreens... I actually still had one in the freezer that I ate a month or so ago.

    Here from the Love and Laundry link up...

  3. Sounds like a great combo - chocolate candy and Girl Scout cookies! Do you know if they're only available this month, and do major retailers all sell them? (Eg. Ralphs, Target, etc.)
