A generation of 90s kids has grown up and, one could say, moved on. Fruit Roll-Ups tongue tattoos gave way to other tongue-staining treats (looking at you, red wine and coffee) as adulthood set in. Except not really, because nostalgia is the millennial’s favorite pastime. So it’s only natural that tongue-staining treats from the Nickelodeon show Rugrats would make a comeback.

Enter the Reptar Bar and Reptar Cereal, available for a limited time from FYE (speaking of throwbacks…), the CD and movie store. On sale beginning last week, the bars flew off the shelves as soon as boxes were opened, and FYE phones were ringing throughout the days with calls from hungry Rugrats fans. Though the Reptar Bars were shaped like Reptar—a Godzilla-esque monster—in the animated series, the ones being sold at FYE are simply chocolate bars filled with green frosting. True to the hype, they do actually turn your tongue green.

If the bars aren’t available in your local FYE, you can pre-order them in bulk on the FYE website—if you’re down to spend $69.99 for a box of 24 (sell them to your friends?). Additionally, you can also snag some limited edition Reptar Cereal on the site for $12.99. Looks like people are willing to pay a steep price for a taste of 90's nostalgia.

Can't wait for the pre-order? Check out our recipe for Reptar Bars, or learn to make them with this video.
