Last year, the pop culture fanatics at FYE made the dreams of Rugrats fans come true by releasing a real life Reptar chocolate bar filled with green frosting. It was a fun way to cash in on the 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 Godzilla rip-off 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. Read More »

San Diego Comic-Con is full of special experiences and installations, trying to convince fans to check out the latest movies and TV shows that Hollywood has to offer. However, this year’s convention had a surprising installation that came out of left field but was welcomed with open arms just the same.
Inspired by the 1993 sci-fi action blockbuster Demolition Man (starring Sylvester Stallone, Wesley Snipes and Sandra Bullock), the fast food chain Taco Bell decided to make good on the prediction made by the film for the year 2032, when the movie takes place. You see, in the future, Taco Bell apparently won what is dubbed the “franchise wars,” and every restaurant in the merged metropolis of San Angeles is now a Taco Bell. So Comic-Con was treated to an upscale Taco Bell dining experience that is way fancier than anything you’ve ever gotten from their drive-thru, and we checked it out first-hand. Read More »
In 1993, Warner Bros. released Demolition Man, a sci-fi action film that starred Sylvester Stallone as a present day cop who’s cryogenically frozen until being thawed out in the future to apprehend his greatest nemesis. It’s somehow terrible and wonderful at the same time.
It’s been 25 years since the film came out, and to celebrate, Warner Bros. is planning a Demolition Man Comic-Con pop-up at next month’s convention in San Diego. And if you’ve seen the movie, you probably know where this is going: yep, Taco Bell is going to be involved. Read More »
When I woke up this morning, I didn’t think I would be getting a massive Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom crate sent to me as a totally insane cross-promotion from Doritos. But here we are.
Doritos has teamed up with Universal Pictures to unleash what they call an “experiment gone horribly right.” Life found a way, and the two companies have unleashed what they are calling Jurassic Doritos. These are Doritos that are 18 times the size of your average Doritos chip, and they even come housed in an extremely limited edition dinosaur egg. This might be the most bonkers promotional item we’ve ever seen. Check it out below. Read More »

McDonald’s really pissed off Rick and Morty fans last fall. The fast food chain released limited quantities of their beloved and desired Szechuan dipping sauce that debuted as part of a cross-promotion with Mulan in 1998 after the third season of Rick and Morty made such a big deal out of it. But the quantities were so limited that what was supposed to be a fun promotion turned into a pop culture riot.
After the Szechuan wars resulted in plenty of complaints being thrown at McDonald’s, the fast food chain vowed to make it right by making infinitely more Szechuan sauce available so that everyone could get their hands on it. They vowed to bring back the sauce sometime this winter, and now we know exactly when we can get it. Read More »

One of the most beloved cartoons to come out of Nickelodeon in the 1990s was Rugrats. Though the show lost its way after the movie turned the characters into more of a cash grab commodity, the first few seasons of the series are quirky, clever and full of fantastic pop culture references and parodes for cinephiles.
One of the most famous pieces of pop culture parody from Rugrats is the giant lizard monster known as Reptar. An obvious spoof of Godzilla, the green dinosaur had his own movie that Tommy Pickles and his friends tried to sneak around a multiplex to see, his own ice skating extravaganza, action figures and more. But easily the two most coveted pieces of Reptar memorabilia were the Reptar Bars and Reptar Cereal, and now you can get your hands on both of them right now.
Find out where to get these Rugrats Reptar Bars and Reptar Cereal below. Read More »
