Kälteen Bars are Swedish nutrition bars designed for weight-gain. The wrapper says on it, "Gå upp i vikt!" which means "to bulk up/gain weight" in Swedish. According to Cady Heron, they have an ingredient that is currently illegal in America.

"Why are you eating a Kalteen bar?"
"I'm starving."
"Man, I hate those things. Coach Carr makes us eat those when we want to move up a weight class."
"They make you gain weight like crazy."
"Mother f-...Aaaaaaaah!"

Use for Sabotage

Cady supplying the first Kälteen bar to Regina

Cady Heron supplies Regina George with Kälteen Bars in her sabotage efforts against Regina.

Cady would accurately describe them to Janis Ian and Damian Leigh as "weird Swedish nutrition bars. My mom used to give them to the kids in Africa to help them gain weight." In the following scene, Cady recommends those bars to Regina, saying they will help her burn all the calories and continuously lose weight. Throughout the later part of the film, Regina can be seen eating the bars whenever she gets the chance, eventually gaining so much weight that she could not even fit into her Spring Fling dress anymore.
