No More Animal Poop Sweets at Disney World

So... I hear that Disney gave up (guest complaints?) and is no longer selling the animal-poop-shaped chocolates at the new sweet shop in Disney's Animal Kingdom.

Thoughts?

Maybe TOO much dedication to immersion?

Sometimes the jokes are too inside out.

I think it was done by a park level manager without Disney corporate involvement. It was a huge publicity winner and social media star. Corporate stepped in and shut it down so that they can reintroduce it later and take the credit (and promotions and raises).

Tony, I think it was just a dumb idea... this is the innovation they are coming up with to counteract the Potter effect down I-4.

You never ate gummy worms? UGH! GROSS! I had the 15th Animal Kingdom Anniversary cupcake, it was styled like a lump of loamy soil with earth worms crawling over it. That was fun and tasty and a super hit with guests. Let's make more fun.

Hey, Disney is making some tasty chocolates and shaping it like poop. Sounds like a gimmick. A deliciously fun gimmick.

Dole Whip is a gimmick
Butterbeer is a gimmick

Why not this?

As for the Harry Potter being built down the road, AK is getting Pandora so I do not think we should be comparing some chocolate to two themed lands.
