The connection between theme park food and Disney merchandise reaches a higher level. We have long gone from the days of t-shirts praising turkey legs.
Disney has a new line called D-Lish in stores. It has a handful of heavy hitter – Dole Whip, Mickey Bars, Churros – presented in a non-traditional way as a souvenir. Sometimes the company uses food packaging for normal equipment, such as cupcake-style socks or T-shirts in pizza boxes.
Here are some eye-catching food products that we noticed on a trip to Disney Springs.
We start with a proven but real item, the mouse ear headband, this time crowned with pink donuts. It's more cartoonish than the latest trenders with shiny sequins, but we appreciate more flavor. (There is no calorie count for the ears, but they cost $ 27.99.)
The usefulness of a zippered ice bar escapes us. Maybe you could carry this in your wallet, although its capacity is low. My driver's license barely fits in the length. But fashion is a victim and at least you have no ugly chocolate residue in the corners of your mouth. ($ 19.99)
The Dole Whip fever continues on many fronts, including a fridge magnet, a large drinking vessel, a baseball cap, and pillows. We make the leap here, pineapple, the first-class Dole Whip flavor, is a symbol of friendship, so the creamy desert is suitable for a welcome mat. ($ 34.99)
Momma always said "Do not play with your food", but this point seems to contradict her idea. It's a selection of toys that looks good enough to eat, but let's not do that, kids. ($ 17.99)
Finally, a more subtle outcry appears in this polo shirt. It contains small icons of Disney snacks, classically and evenly distributed. In addition to the Mickey bars, there are popcorn, turkey legs, pretzels, drinks and much more. You could sneak this for the casual Friday of your office ($ 39.99)
