The oven will retail for $59.99 and come with one box of Thin Mint mix. Other flavors, like Trefoils, Coconut Caramel (Samoas), PB Sandwich (Do-si-dos), Chocolate Peanut Butter (Tagalongs) and more, are available for $6.99 per mix.
“It’s not the most original idea in the world -- it’s a no-brainer -- but it was just something that personally I was always very passionate about,” Rinzler told ABC News. “But the Girl Scouts always said no to everyone that pitched it.”
That all changed with new management recently, and Rinzler saw an opening. He got the cookie company to agree to a partnership and plans were set in motion this past July. Wicked Cool Toys developed their own patent-pending toy oven – which Rinzler is very quick to say is better than the Easy Bake with an all-new ceramic heating element – and worked with food scientists to create the cookie mixes.
“We’re not meant as a replacement for selling Girl Scout cookies; we’re meant as a way for girls and boys to have fun and recreate them in their homes,” Rinzler said. “Now you can do it all year long because cookie selling is only January to March.”
In other words, no need to hide those boxes from yourself so you can get a late-year treat.
