Have you tried Nestlé Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars yet?  Better hurry, because these limited edition candy bars – a modern interpretation of the iconic Girl Scout Cookie merged with the classic Nestle Crunch candy bar – are only available during the summer at participating retail stores. That means fans have less than a month left to enjoy them.

Nestlé Crunch Girl Scout Thin Mint Candy Bar,
I'm a Baby Boomer with many fond memories as a Girl Scout and of selling Girl Scout Cookies door to door back in the day. When I tried these delicious wafer cookie-candy treats recently it brought back sweet memories of my three favorite Girl Scout Cookie varieties which in the 1960s were known as Thin Mints, Savannahs (Peanut Butter Creme) and Samoas (Coconut with a ripple of chocolate). Luckily today, these three personal picks are also the public's most popular, which is why they were selected for the contemporary product line.

My 1960s Vintage Girl Scout Sash w/ Badges,
Whether you are hopelessly nostalgic like me or have never enjoyed a Girl Scout cookie before, you are going to love these if you are a cookie and candy afficianado. No wonder these delectable treats were awarded the 2012 “Best New Product” by Better Homes & Gardens and "Best Brand Extension" by Adweek when they first were introduced. I'm not surprised that they were certified this year as a “national treasure” by the American Collectibles Museum shortly after they became available again in May 2013, either.
