Sometimes Disney food pops up in the strangest places.
This past Saturday, I took the D23 Disney Studios Tour. And the highlight of the tour was definitely walking into the archives room to see Disney historian Dave Smith himself standing there waiting to give us a personal tour of the room.
Highlights of the archives included holding the very first Disneyland entrance ticket, being among the first to look up close at the original story book for Steamboat Willie, and holding one of Walt Disney’s Oscars. WOW, what a treat.
After being in awe of all the amazing things in this room, I spotted something definitely worth sharing here on the DFB: Donald Duck food and drink items!
Donald Duck Food Line History
I couldn’t believe all of food this duck used to hawk! Apparently, Donald was one of the most licensed Disney characters of his time.
I couldn’t believe the range of products that Donald used to represent. Everything from Nabisco’s “Cheese Quackers” (this should for sure be brought back to market!) to root beer, broccoli, and the most bizarre in my opinion, Donald Duck Flounder Fillets!
I would love a big bowl of Donald Duck Sherbet right now, how about you?
