Rumors of a Girl Scout candy bar began to swirl this week after an image of Thin Mint-Nestle Crunch hybrid was posted on Reddit.The ladies at Jezebel tried to temper their excitement:

This mysterious temptress showed up on Reddit today, but no one can find any mention of it anywhere else on the internet. This precious item is clearly marked as a sales sample, so let's hope that's a sign that these will someday be available for our constant, uninterrupted consumption.

The candy bar photo you're looking at above was emailed to HuffPost Food straight from the horse's mouth: the Girl Scouts. Yup, those Redditors were on to something; THIS IS REAL. Don't get too excited yet though -- the Nestle Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bar is not yet in stores. Here's the official word:

We are thrilled with the positive response to the Nestle Crunch Girl Scout Candy Bar. The product photo is a retail sales sample and not available for sale at this time. Look forward to some very exciting news in June.

Here's what we can tell you though. The candy bar has dark chocolate cookie wafers and mint chocolate crème, topped with airy crispies.

Let the countdown to June begin!
