Guys, we’re having a moment. Nothing defined our ’90s childhoods more than Nickelodeon, and no other show left more of an impression than Rugrats (Sorry, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters. You weren’t something to scream about.). Tommy, Chuckie, Phil, Lil, and yes, even Angelica, brought so much joy to our lives, which is why we were beyond stoked to hear that the ever-so-coveted Reptar bar and Reptar cereal were now being turned into a reality.
In partnership with FYE, Nick has decided to roll out a line of the sweet confections that are guaranteed to turn your tongue green (Well, the candy bar at least. The cereal looks more like Fruit Loops on acid). Your new favorite throwback will be sold in FYE’s 250 locations around the country, with the cereal available exclusively online.
This certainly isn’t Nickelodeon’s first foray into the Nicktoon merchandise vault, but because it’s edible, it’s something we’re most excited about. Our only disappointment is that the bars aren’t shaped like the scary, but lovable dino himself, though we’re sure that would have upped the production costs and made these more ridiculously priced than they already are (It’s $12 for the box of cereal—are you kidding?!).
Perhaps the most exciting prospect is the release of even more food-related nostalgia. Just imagine the possibilities: Doug Beet Juice, Hey Arnold! Sugar Chunks, Ren & Stimpy Powdered Toast and Shredded Cardboard…we’re already dusting off the VHS in anticipation (Don’t act like you don’t have recordings of these shows on tape. #vintage).
Reptar Bars and Reptar Cereal are available for a limited time only, so head to the mall (so ’90s) and stock up now. It’s the perfect stocking stuffer for the holidays and the perfect way to say “congratulations, you’re old” to all of the late ’80s/early ’90s babies in your life.
