The Rugrats ‘Reptar Bar’ Is Real. And Yes, It Will Turn Your Tongue Green
It’s the latest and, according to some social media users, greatest iteration of 1990’s nostalgia yet: The return of the Reptar Bar.
The green goo-filled chocolate bars, named after a Godzilla-like monster on the Nickelodeon cartoon series Rugrats, are available courtesy of retail brand FYE, owned by Trans World Entertainment (TWMC). The company also sells ‘Rugrats’-inspired Reptar cereal.
Reptar-themed toys, clothes, and accessories were all the rage for Tommy, Chuckie, Angelica, and the twins, the program’s adventurous baby-stars. But the monster’s chocolate bars were particularly memorable:
And just like in the show, which ran for 13 years from 1991 to 2004, it looks like the real bars will turn your tongue a cartoonish shade of green. Needless to say, “Rugrats” fans and social media users are pretty excited about the chance to taste the lovable tots favorite treat.
Can’t get enough? There’s a whole range of cartoon-inspired culinary spin-offs, including a “Bob’s Burgers” cookbook and a restaurant outfitted just like Spongebob Squarepants’ beloved Krusty Krab in the Palestinian city of Ramallah.
