Of all the brands crafting Mean Girls-themed products, Dylan’s Candy Bar is one of the more unexpected choices. At the very least, we thought it would be something like Nature Valley protein bars rebranding themselves as Kalteen bars, or even perhaps a “You go, Glen Coco” hot cocoa from Swiss Miss. Never the less, here we are and Dylan’s Candy Bar is celebrating National Mean Girls Day with a special line of sweets.
Remember how Cady will always remember October 3 as the day Aaron Samuels asked her what date it was? Dylan’s remembers. Beginning tomorrow, September 1, and leading up all the way to the holiday, you will be able to buy Mean Girls-themed items from the candy brand. Among those that will be offered is the Kalteen bar ($5.25). The wrapper around this crispy peanut butter bar reads, “a weird nutrition bar” that “burns carbs…it just burns up all your carbs.” Hopefully, this one won’t make us inflate like a Macy’s Day balloon, but if you eat enough of them, well…
Another hot ticket item is a box of “Is butter a carb?” popcorn-flavored jelly beans ($6.00). In the film, Regina George is so obsessed with her all-carb diet she’s desperate for more…even though sweatpants are all that fit her right now.
There are smaller, non-edible items — like the “Her hair is so big because it’s full of secrets” hair ties ($12.00) and the “Get in, loser, we’re going shopping” tote bag ($20.00) — and if you’re a fan of Regina’s mom, then you’re going to want your own “I’m not a regular mom, I’m a cool” plastic wine tumbler ($23.00). This infamous Mean Girls quote is plastered around the item and it’s filled with pineapple gummy bears. Don’t worry, there’s no alcohol in them…but if you want some, Dylan’s would rather you do it in the house. Then again, you can always fill it with "You go, Glen Coco" pink hot chocolate ($12.50).
On October 3, Dylan’s Candy Bar locations will feature Mean Girls-themed events with trivia and other similar activities. So keep a look out for more information on the Dylan’s website.
