I recently realized that you’re nobody in Toon Town if you don’t have your own food product line. Used to be only Mickey had his own ice cream bars…maybe a bag of pasta or two. But these days, you’re simply not A-list Toon material if you’re not selling your personalized line at the Main Street Emporium.
Let’s take a look at a few of the brands you can now purchase — endorsed by your favorite characters, of course! Some of them are actually pretty new on the scene…
Minnie’s Bake Shop
You can tell from our tour through Minnie’s kitchen that she’s a baker; luckily, we now get a chance to sample her recipes (and NOT the diet ones!):
True, this looks a bit like a re-brand of Mickey’s old cookie company, but, alas, who are we to judge?
These, I think, are entirely new. Love the spoons attached!
And here’s a quick sampling of other Bake Shop items:
One of my favorite New York City haunts is called Alice’s Teacup, and I wonder if they’ll start carrying Wonderland’s newest tea line there! This line of teas, tea china, and tea accessories — straight from the Mad Hatter’s tea party — should please any Alice fan.
Be sure to read the Wonderland Decree on the box,
Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrarywise — what it is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would.
And here’s a great display at the Writer’s Stop at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Disney Princess Pasta
Even the princesses have gotten into the Food Product Line groove at Disney. What little princess wouldn’t love some noodle soup or homemade mac and cheese showcasing pasta shaped like her favorite female idols?
Goofy’s Candy Company
Of course, you all remember the sensationally successful Goofy’s Candy Company — well known throughout Disney to be the primary supplier of Halloween candy, gummies, and sour pucker powder!
Chip and Dale Snack Company
For those of you who want to preserve your diet — or at least have a semi-healthy snack — while on vacation, head straight to the Chip and Dale product line (do NOT pass go…). These are the healthiest pre-packaged snacks you’ll find on property (besides the packaged fresh fruit, of course), and the line includes dried fruit mixes, trail mix, pretzels, many different kinds of natural nuts, etc.
Mickey’s Many Product Lines
I’m sure I haven’t captured all of Mickey’s product lines here, but I’ve at least snapped photos of some of the newest items on the scene. We’re all familiar with Mickey’s “Really Swell” Coffee Brand, and, of course, Mickeyroni and Cheese! But have you sampled his Resort Delights island-inspired products, or his Chocolatears-brand gourmet chocolate bark?
What’s YOUR Favorite?
While you may be partial to the old school classic Mickeyroni and Cheese, I can’t wait to sample some of that gourmet chocolate bark! Would love to hear from some of you who have tried the Resort Delights line as well — any good?
