Girl Scout Cookies to Be Featured in New Candy Bar

Nestle(NEW YORK) -- Girl Scout cookie season is arguably the highlight of the year for those who anticipate the appearance of the bright yellow, blue and green boxes.

Starting in June, fans will be able to get their cookie fix in the form of a candy bar.  The Girl Scouts have teamed with Nestle to create Crunch bars flavored with Thin Mint, Caramel Coconut (Samoa-inspired) or Peanut Butter Creme (Tagalong-inspired).

With $760 million in cookies sold last year, it isn't surprising that the demand for the candy bars has already begun.

"When word of this irresistible combination of Nestlé Crunch and Girl Scout Cookie flavors leaked earlier this year, consumers started calling," said Nestle spokesperson Tricia Bowles in a statement.

For those who can't wait until June, Nestle will launch a Facebook promotion Wednesday that will allow consumers to buy bars from a limited supply.

Starting June 1, they will be available nationwide and retail for about $1 per bar and $4 per box.
