Minty Girl Scout Candy Bar Is a Genius Idea

Yum! 14

thin mintsThin Mints in a candy bar? Yes please!If you heard the rumors about the Girl Scouts teaming up with Nestle to make a candy bar and you thought to yourself, "Yay! Wait, nah, that's waaaay too good to be true," are you in luck, friend! A spokesperson for the Girl Scouts confirmed the spectacular news that the Nestle Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bar will be coming our way likely in June.

Comprised of everyone's favorite GS cookies, Thin Mints, the bars are described as "dark chocolate cookie wafers and mint chocolate creme, topped with airy crispies." I'm definitely salivating at the thought, how about you?

Unfortunately, three plus months is a long time to wait for this treat. But in the meantime let's amuse ourselves by making a dream list of cookie-candy bar collaborations. I'll start ...

The Oreo candy bar already exists so moving along, imagine a candy bar made with Keebler Fudge Stripe Cookies: Layers of crispy shortbread wafers with a fudgy center all covered in luscious chocolate fudge.

Snickerdoodles are my very favorite type of cookie. So, I'm dreaming of a snickerdoodle-inspired candy bar that has buttery, sugar cookie wafers layered with cinnamon-scented vanilla creme.

A chocolate chip cookie candy bar seems like a no-brainer but let's picture it anyways: Fluffy whipped cookie dough studded with chocolate chips all coated in rich milk chocolate.

Oooohhh and what about a Pepperidge Farm Milano-inspired candy bar? Crunch vanilla wafers with the deepest darkest chocolate filling you've ever tasted. I think this cookie-candy bar collaboration trend could really catch on, don't you?

What kind of cookie candy bar would you like to see?
