Cartoon-Inspired Candy Bars

Chocolate Reptar Bars Have Returned for the Holiday Season at FYE

— November 4, 2018 — Lifestyle
For those looking to enjoy a bit of nostalgia this holiday season, chocolate Reptar Bars are back at FYE. Standing six and a half inches tall, these chocolate dinos are a tasty way to relive a popular cartoon series.

The Deluxe Reptar Chocolate Bar is a dinosaur-shaped piece of chocolate inspired by the toy from the beloved 90s cartoon 'Rugrats.' However, these aren't just any old dinosaur-shaped chocolate bars. Instead, the chocolate Reptar Bars are "green frosting filled caramel milk chocolate with peanut crunch" that turns your tongue green. There is also an exclusive Reptar on Ice Bar, which features blue frosting instead of green.

With the 2018 holiday season already in full swing, it's clear that nostalgia-inducing products that remind millennials of their favorite childhood memories are sure to be a hit this Christmas.
