FYE Unveils New and Improved Holiday-Themed 'Rugrats' Reptar Bars

Update (11/4) - Below is Nickelodeon and Trans World Entertainment Corp.'s official press release announcing the ROOAARR-tastic news!:

The Superist! The Duperist! Reptar Bar is Back at FYE



Albany, NY, November 1, 2018 -- Through a partnership with Nickelodeon, FYE will once again delight fans with a new spin on last year’s very successful Reptar chocolate bar, inspired by the hit Nick ‘90s animated series Rugrats. Hold on to your diapies babies, Reptar is back and better than ever!

The new, limited release of the exclusive Deluxe Reptar Chocolate Bar is the confection fans have been asking for! FYE has created a 6oz, 6.5” tall, beautifully packaged, flavor explosion in the shape of Reptar. You can finally bite into a delicious milk chocolate exterior, swirled with nuts and caramel, featuring a tasty bright green frosting center that turns your tongue green! This edition of the chocolate bar is the first of its kind and will only be available at FYE. Be prepared to enjoy Reptar on a new deluxe level!

Iconic Rugrats character Angelica Pickles said it best, “A Reptar Bar is chocolate and nuts and caramel and green stuff and it’s swirled and stirred and rippled and beaten and sweetened until you can’t stop eatin’. The superist! The duperist! The double chocolate scooperist! The meanest! The best! It’s better than the rest! Reptar Bar! Reptar Bar! The candy bar supreme! The candy bar that turns your tongue green!”


FYE has also just launched the exclusive Reptar on Ice Bar for anyone who missed the original. This year the Reptar on Ice Bar turns your tongue blue! As part of a broader Nickelodeon ‘90s product offering, FYE even has exclusive men’s and women’s apparel, a Christmas ornament, collectible figures, cozy sweatshirt blanket, and more.

These products are available exclusively at FYE stores and both of the chocolate bars are available for order at www.FYE.com.

Trim your tree this holiday with a Reptar Christmas Tree ornament (image above)!

Besides a T.Rex shaped chocolate bar and Reptar Christmas Tree ornament, there are many more products that will keep the '90s alive. You'll find Reptar shirts to rock to your next cycling class and a Chuckie Rugrats keychain that will ensure you never lose track of your house or car keys ever again.

While '90s Nick Kids might miss certain details of their childhood, like watching a Rugrats marathon without being aware that there would ever be a worry about final exams or big meetings in their future, there are perks to being an adult. For example, getting to make the decision that stocking up on multiple candy bars is a very good idea.


Original post:

Around this time last year, the pop culture fanatics at FYE partnered with Nickelodeon to make the dreams of Rugrats fans come true by releasing a real life Reptar chocolate bar filled with green frosting. It was a fun dose of nostalgia for the fan favorite Nicktoon of children of the ’90s, but it sounds like they may have heard the cries of some fans who were hoping for a more authentic recreation of the cartoon treat.


FYE is releasing a new and improved Reptar bar that is actually in the shape of the mighty Reptar, the dinosaur that Tommy Pickles and his friends were so obsessed with on Rugrats. And the good news is that the candy concoction is still filled with frosting that turns your tongue green. Find out how and when to get it below!

The taste of the Reptar bar may actually be improved too. While the initial Reptar bars were milk chocolate with frosting inside, you’ll notice that these new Reptar bars are actually caramel milk chocolate with peanut crunch. Now the only downside is that the Reptar bar doesn’t come inside of a wrapper that looks like Reptar himself, but we’ll take what we can get.

They've also created a "Reptar on Ice" version of the original bar that features blue frosting inside, which will turn your tongue ice blue!

Need to taste the new and improved Reptar bars at all costs? That's good, because pre-ordering the Reptar Bar Deluxe (available in two holiday-themed packaging options) will set you back $17.99 each, and are exclusive to FYE is the only place you can get it. However, they are “deluxe” candy bars, and appear to be much bigger than your average candy bar. A five pack of Reptar on Ice Bars will cost you $19.99, with individual bars being made available in stores. The Reptar Bar Deluxe is set to start shipping and appearing in stores on October 26th. The Reptar on Ice edition arrives on November 8th, just in time for the holidays. You can get your pre-orders in right here, and I highly suggest that you do as soon as possible because, like the previous versions, they won't last long.

The official descriptions for each product are available below.
