By USA Today Staff WriterOctober 15, 2018 09:23:17TEXAS — Scooby Doo is back on shelves in Texas after being on shelves for a few weeks.
The popular cartoon character was once the staple of late night snack snacks, breakfast cereal, baby snack and even candy bars, but it is now available for the first time in the Lone Star State for $1.99 per package at some grocery stores.
“It’s a great way to go,” said Jennifer Dyer, who is buying a package of Scooby’s Big Scooby Snack for her four-month-old daughter.
“It’s easy to grab and go.”
The first Scooby snack came out in 1999, and it was an instant hit.
In 2016, Scooby and his pals joined forces with the popular movie franchise Scooby Apocalypse to launch the popular snack chain.
The Scooby name, Scooby and the Wasp, is one of the most recognizable in the history of the Scooby world.
The Scoobys have appeared in more than 10 movies and animated TV shows.
“We’ve never really had a Scooby character in a TV show, but we’re getting the opportunity to introduce Scooby in a film,” said Scott Dyer with Scooby Nation.
The first-ever Scooby film, The Big Scoobobah, opened in 2018, followed by the Scoobies reboot, Scoobs Revenge in 2019.
The movie and TV franchise, which has been going strong for over a decade, has also become a favorite snack for fans of the animated series.
“The Scoobes are a huge part of the fandom,” Dyer said.
“Scooby is an American hero and they’ve always been there.
Scooby has been part of our DNA, and they have a huge fanbase.”
The popular Scooby franchise is sold at dozens of locations across Texas and is popular in the Houston area.
There is also a Scoobymaker, a popular snack shop where the Scoobs and their friends make snacks for customers.
ScoobyNation.com is a popular online destination for fans to order snacks.
Dyer bought a pack of the Snack Shack menu for her daughter and she is looking forward to eating some more of the food.
“I’ve never had Scooby before, but this is the first real Scooby experience I’ve had in my life,” Dury said.
