Hold onto your diapies because Nickelodeon’s Reptar Bars are back at FYE with an all-new holiday makeover. Last year when the entertainment retailer launched the fictional "Rugrats" snack, it rightfully created mass hysteria among ’90s babies. Many flocked to their local FYE stores for the chocolate bar with green frosting at the center, which, yes, turned their tongues green.
More than a year later, the sweet treat is back exclusively at FYE, but this time around things look a little different. For $19.99, customers can cop a five-pack of 1.75-ounce “Reptar on Ice” bars, which swap the famous green frosting for blue. But don’t worry, it’s still promised to stain your mouth.
FYE is also selling chocolate in the shape of the beloved cartoon dinosaur called the “Reptar Bar Deluxe.” It’s practically a chocolate Easter Bunny, but a million times better. It costs $14.99 and was inspired by the formula to this version mentioned in a jingle on the show:
A Reptar Bar is chocolate and nuts and caramel and green stuff and-and-and it’s swirled and stirred and rippled and beaten and sweetened until you can’t stop eatin’. The superist! The duperist! The double chocolate scooperist! The meanest. The best! It’s better than the rest! Reptar Bar! Reptar Bar! The candy bar supreme! The candy bar that turns your tongue green!
The 6.5-inch Reptar Bar Deluxe is made with caramel milk chocolate, peanut crunch and green frosting filling “shaped into the hottest dinosaur around.” You can find it in two separate holiday-themed packages. One plainly features a Christmas tree and presents, while the other shows Tommy Pickles and Chuckie Finster playing around in the snow. We know which one we’re choosing, but we won’t tell. The world is our toaster.
We love a good nostalgic moment and are glad the Rugrats’ favorite candy bar made it to shelves in real life. Fictional or not, tons of amazing snacks were around in the 1990s. Unlike the Reptar Bar, many of them were given the ax, never to be seen again. Take a trip down memory lane with us and ogle over the best discontinued snack foods from the decade you were born.
