Disney World's New Sweet Shop Says... 'We're Number Two!'

June 19, 2015, 9:35 AM · Zuri's Sweets Shop opened this week in the new Harambe Market in Disney's Animal Kingdom. Last week, Disney teased the new shop with photos of Lion King-themed cookies and lollipops, as well as of flavored popcorn and Mickey-shaped sweets. Nothing game-changing, but the Disney Parks Blog post includes a cryptic reference to "Rice Krispies treats with nods to the animal world."

When the shop opened this week, we discovered what that meant:

Yep, Disney's created sweets made to look like giraffe, elephant, tamarin and hippo scat. Sure, it's juvenile humor, but last we checked, there were a whole lot of pre-teen kids visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. And many of them will love the joke and beg their parents to buy at least one of the treats — just as Disney hopes.

Vote of the Week: What do you think?

June 19, 2015 at 10:59 AM · I agree! It is for fun, I am sure the kids will enjoy them! ;)
June 19, 2015 at 11:21 AM · Nice title to the article, Robert!
"Nice to meet you, Number Two."
June 19, 2015 at 11:36 AM · Kids? I know plenty of adults who will ant them! Hahahaha!
June 19, 2015 at 11:51 AM · Uh, no? Cost cutting occurs too much at Disney. I fear this would have too easy of a substitution.
June 19, 2015 at 11:58 AM · Where's the number 1 Corona mix?
June 19, 2015 at 12:26 PM · ...disgusting, I don't think I'd buy that for my kid even if they wanted it.
June 19, 2015 at 12:32 PM · Goes in the same way it comes out!
June 19, 2015 at 2:48 PM · So Pooh IS still at Animal Kingdom!

June 19, 2015 at 3:44 PM · Okay, Jay wins the thread.
June 19, 2015 at 3:53 PM · I think you're all talking crap, this looks delicious.
June 19, 2015 at 10:27 PM · Disgusting and my tween kids thought the same. I expect Disney to have more class.
June 20, 2015 at 9:41 AM · The joke is kinda immature, but hey, as long as it's not real poop, I'll still eat it!
June 20, 2015 at 3:06 PM · Please tell me that aren't also selling lemonade.
June 23, 2015 at 7:47 AM · "Please tell me they aren't also selling lemonade."


June 23, 2015 at 9:55 AM · I Think this is a type of food item better suited to a Universal or Six Flags park....I see the sense of humour of course, but I think Disney should take the higher road here. Not to mention the fact that poop and food should never been something that's confused, particularly when children are involved.
June 25, 2015 at 2:44 PM · As long as there are children, children will try to gross out their parents. Back in the 60's - thanks to The Addams Family and The Munsters - it was monster cards. My favorite: A coffin that said "Happy Birthday" - and when it was opened a Mummy rose as it said: "And many Happy Returns". T'was ever thus.
