Fetch or not fetch?

ATTENTION EVERYONE. Mean Girls candy is finally a real thing.

These days the only way to celebrate one of the most iconic films of our lives is by occasionally donning a pink shirt on Wednesday or tweeting the famous line every October 3. But thanks to Dylan's Candy Bar, the film is being brought to life in the form of candy and chocolate, which is the best way to bring anything to life. In an effort to honor this masterpiece, we got our hands on some Kälteen bars and decided to try out the candy for ourselves. Here's what went down.

Kälteen Bar: $5.25

Matt: It honestly tasted like a Crunch Bar. I honestly wanted to believe that it still worked (like in the movie where Cady said it made people lose weight), even though I know it wouldn't.

Kevin: I agree with Matt, the Kälteen bar tasted exactly like a crunch bar. Honestly it was pretty good and sort of what I expected.

Kristin: It tasted way better than other nutrition bars I've had. 10/10 would eat again.

Sydney: The Kälteen bars taste like low budget Crunch bars. I mean, they're good, but not as good as I expected.

Arielle: I didn't eat one but I'm sure it will help me lose three pounds.

Candy Gram & Kiss Pop: $10

Kevin: Candy grams and Kiss pops galore. I think that these would be great as a gag gift or even a real gift. I will admit the lips pop is literally huge! The candy grams are larger than life candy canes too.

Kristin: I felt as cool as Glen Coco for a minute, which is the true highlight of this treat. Plus, it'd make a really cute ~holiday gift~ for your friends.

“Everyone In African Can Read Swedish” Paint Can: $17

Loryn: The Swedish fish tasted like wax... which was unfortunate.

Kevin: I love Swedish fish, they're one of my favorite candies, and while I didn't necessarily hate it these were more waxy than normal Swedish fishy (if that makes sense) they're also much thicker than the normal Swedish fish that I'm used to.

"Is Butter A Carb" flavored jelly beans: $6

Kevin: The butter popcorn jellybeans were by far my favorite from the entire collection. They were buttery but still sweet and the after taste was good. It wasn't like the gross Jelly Belly flavors.

Kristin: The packaging is 💯 and they taste like an explosion of butter in your mouth.

Alanna: The jelly bean type thing was good in that it tasted like jelly beans.

Petite Cookie Set: $14

Kristin: These are so cute that I want to literally frame the Burn Book cookie and keep it forever.

Kevin: The cookies tasted like regular shortbread cookies with a bunch of icing. They were a little harder than I imagined them to be but overall they were tasty. I'd imagine they'd pair nicely with hot cocoa or coffee.

Alanna: I tried to take a bite of that Fetch cookie but it threatened violence.

Mean (Milk Chocolate), Meaner (Cookies & Cream), and Meanest (Dark Chocolate): $3.25 each

Taylor Miller / BuzzFeed

Loryn: Thanks for the candy! I thought the movie was better than the candy in general, but the dark chocolate bar was pretty good!

Sarah: These chocolates are delicious and the nostalgia for Mean Girls is even tastier.

Kevin: All of these were pretty tasty, but again they were just normal chocolate flavors so there's that but my favorite was the Cookies & Cream flavor.

Alanna: The chocolate was good in that it tasted like chocolate.

Spencer: The milk chocolate bar was definitely my favorite, like it was made out of rainbows and smiles. It was so fetch.

Final thoughts:

Jessica: This candy is SOOO not fetch.

Dave:Mean Gals — Stop trying to make delicious happen - because you already did!

Sydney: It was all pretty fetch.

Kevin: Overall I think it's really cool that Dylan's created candy that resembles one of my favorite movies of all time. Most of the candy tasted like... regular candy, except the jelly beans which were by far my favorite. I also really enjoyed the packaging. Now I want a real Burn Book.

Kristin: Listen, the point isn't for the candy to be the best candy of your life, the point is that your favorite movie was turned into cute chocolate which is REALLY DAMN FETCH. I will definitely be buying all of this to throw my own Mean Girls party next October 3rd and you're all invited.
