Camp Memories and Snack Ideas: Nestlé Crunch Girl Scout™ Candy Bars

kidsfunreviewed

If there is one great fun memory I have from growing up, it’s summer camp! I always loved to head off to summer camp with my friends. I was even a camp counselor when I got too old to be a camper! Now that I have my own child I want him to share that fun childhood experience. When he was younger we found several different summer camps for him to attend.

Packing for summer camp

When you’re packing for camp you’ll want to make sure you include all of the essentials. Don’t forget to pack:

  • clothes to dress in layers, including plenty of long and short sleeves, and both jeans and shorts (Don’t forget those skivvies!)
  • rain gear or an umbrella
  • bug spray
  • travel first aid kit
  • durable shoes for hiking and walking
  • toothbrush and toothpaste
  • flashlight and spare batteries
  • phone and charger (if allowed)
  • deodorant
  • soap, shampoo, towel, and other shower items
  • pillow and sleeping bag or bedding
  • deck of cards, book, or small game for downtime
  • small backpack for hiking or day trips
  • swim items if there’s a pool
  • snacks (enough to share)

Of course, the kid’s favorite part is always the snacks! Make sure you pack the snacks in an airtight container to keep critters and bugs away. You’ll also want to make sure you pack plenty of snacks so your child can share! Some of my favorite camp memories are late night snacking sessions and whispering with friends and hiding under the covers so the counselors couldn’t hear us.

Girl Scout™ camp was one of my favorite camps growing up! We have a wonderful Girl Scout™ campground not too far from my house, so of course when I think of camp, I think of Girl Scouts. That’s why the Nestlé Crunch Girl Scout™ Candy Bars are so fun! They remind me of going to Girl Scout™ camp when I was growing up.

Did I mention Nestlé will donate a minimum of $200,000 to fund camp scholarships? To learn more and join in on the fun, head to nestlecrunch.com/LetsGetHerToCamp. You can help increase the donation to $250,000 and send even more girls to camp by joining the Nestlé Crunch Girl Scout™ Candy Bars virtual campfire.


Of course the Nestlé Crunch Girl Scout™ Candy Bars are a perfect snack for kids to take to camp and share with their friends; just make sure your kids don’t leave them out in the hot sun!

We had the opportunity to test out all three flavors of the Nestlé Crunch Girl Scout™ Candy Bars, including Thin Mints, Caramel & Coconut, and Peanut Butter Crème.

Here’s the lowdown on all three delicious flavors:

Thin Mints – Dark chocolate cookie wafers and mint chocolate crème, topped with airy crispies and a rich, dark chocolaty 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, chocolaty coating

All three flavors are modeled after some of our favorite Girl Scout Cookie™ flavors ever! My son and my husband both love Girl Scout Cookies. They each have their own personal favorite candy bar. My son loves the Peanut Butter Crème, and my husband is a fan of the Thin Mints Candy Bars.
