No chipmunks, crickets, rabbits, or fat, slack-jawed, beanie-wearing yokels were actually diced and cooked for these recipes.

Wow. That was stupid. They never thought about a recipe with nuts for Chip and Dale ( for example, Chock-full-of-Nuts Brownies), carrot cake for Thumper, or twin dips for Tweddeldedum and Tweddeldedee? At least the cricket's recipe is full of wheat, which they like, and they do look a bit like worms.

Someday, Pillsbury may use cricket flour in their canned dinner rolls. Bon appetit!

At least they didn't offer Pinocchio's Beaver special.

Alas, Donald à la orange would've been a bit too much like proper food for a Kraft recipe...

I wonder how much money changed hands in this corporate collaboration. Did Disney pay Kraft for the privilege of being mentioned in their ad, or did Kraft pay Disney for the use of its characters? My guess is Disney got the cash.

I've been all over the world, but the worst meal I've ever eaten was at Disney's Animal Kingdom. It handily beat out all the competition, including all the questionable glop I ate as a starving student. Kraft and Disney -- a marriage made in heaven.
