    LIVE EVENT BIDDING: NESTLÉ® CRUNCH® "WORLD'S MOST VALUABLE CANDY BARS" First framed set of the three limited edition Nestlé Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars: Thin Mints™, Caramel & Coconut and Peanut Butter Crème
    Benefitting Girl Scouts Council, Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles

    America, your dreams have come true! After months of speculation and mouth-watering rumors, Nestlé® Crunch® today confirmed it has created the new Nestlé Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars, designated "the world's most valuable candy bars" by the world's largest auction house of collectibles, Heritage Auctions. Having officially authenticated the first set of the three limited edition Nestlé Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars, Heritage Auctions has appraised the bars at $500, an amount almost 200 times greater than the bars' suggested retail price -- making them the most valuable candy bars currently in existence.

    Inspired by the three most popular flavors of Girl Scout Cookies, Nestlé Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars are produced under license from Girl Scouts of the USA and come in three varieties:

    Thin Mints™ - Dark chocolate cookie wafers and mint chocolate crème, topped with airy crispies and a rich, dark chocolatey coating

    Caramel & Coconut - Cookie wafers layered with coconut caramel crème and chewy caramel, topped with toasted coconut and drizzled with caramel stripes

    Peanut Butter Crème - Cookie wafers layered with smooth peanut butter crème, topped with airy crispies and a creamy, chocolate

    "When word of this irresistible combination of Nestlé Crunch and Girl Scout Cookie flavors leaked earlier this year, consumers started calling," said spokesperson Tricia Bowles, Nestlé USA, Confections & Snacks. "One said he'd give us all of his money for Nestlé Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars! Another said she'd do 'anything' to get her hands on some, and our retailers seem to feel the same way. Fans should be ready to buy "the world's most valuable candy bars" before they are all gone!"


    WORTHY OF A RENOIR
    The new Nestlé Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars hold the distinct honor of serving as the muse for acclaimed painter Alexandre Renoir, the great-grandson of the legendary Impressionist, French artist Pierre-Auguste Renoir. His original painting of the bars will be auctioned off at a special VIP event at Galerie Michael in Beverly Hills on May 31. In addition to Renoir's new masterpiece, a framed set of Nestlé Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars from the first production run will be auctioned off at the gallery and online through Heritage Auctions. All proceeds will benefit the local Girl Scouts council, Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles.

    "Nestlé is anticipating a tremendous response to these Girls Scout candy bars and, given how good they are, I'd say those expectations are warranted," said Margaret Barrett, a music, entertainment and pop culture specialist with Heritage Auctions, which will feature the framed set of the Nestle Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars online. "The three candy bars that we are auctioning - from the first production run - will be regarded as treasures of pop culture. They should easily command at least $100 to $200 each at auction or $500 for the set, with the winning bids to benefit the local Girl Scouts council, Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles.

    Authorizing the exclusive candy bars during the organization's landmark 100th anniversary year, Girl Scouts of the USA entered into a national license agreement with Nestlé, for the limited production of Nestlé Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars. This marks the first time the Girl Scouts have licensed a candy bar product inspired by the flavors of their famous cookies.

    Beginning May 9, Nestlé Crunch and Girl Scout Cookie fans can log online to purchase the candy bars through a special, limited supply pre-sale program at Facebook.com/Crunch http://facebook.com/crunch while supplies last. After the pre-sale, the Nestlé Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bars will be available as limited edition candy bars this summer at participating retail stores nationwide, beginning June 1 through September.
