America, get ready for another sweet summer with the return of the limited-edition Nestlé Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars! NESTLÉ® CRUNCH® today confirmed that its award-winning bars will be available again nationwide beginning in June while supplies last. The return of everybody’s favorite candy bar of the summer will be marked by some special surprises to be announced next month.
“Consumers love Nestlé Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars, and they love that they raise awareness about the great work of Girl Scouts,” said spokesperson Tricia Bowles, Nestlé USA. “Requests for the bars’ return have been tremendous, so we are thrilled to bring them back and make everybody’s summer a little bit sweeter. Plus, Nestlé Crunch will be announcing more summer surprises soon with Girl Scouts, so stay tuned!”
Introduced in 2012 to tremendous excitement and fanfare, the limited-edition Nestlé Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars won the 2012 Best New Product award by Better Homes & Gardens and have sold in record numbers every time they hit store shelves in early summer.
