Aggirandomi nella rete alla ricerca di informazioni sul magico mondo della Disney, ho trovato questa notizia, un pò antica ma illuminante. La Walt Disney Company ci coccola, ci fa sognare, ci rassicura e ci nutre, ora con cibo sano!(?)  Uova e frutta per noi!

Alcuni articoli e link per capire la situazione.

Get ready to see Mickey Mouse’s grinning face on an apple carton near you. Disney have created a new brand “Disney Garden” that uses produce from over 15 growers and will be packaged with Disney characters (see Imagination Farms).

Already available are peaches with Daisy Duck and Goofy stickers, and table grapes packaged in Mickey and Minnie Mouse boxes. Organic apples with Winnie the Pooh — the mascot for Disney Garden organic selections — are due out sometime in September. (via CNN)

It’s a savvy move from the industry giant. There are already branded vegetables – such as SpongeBob Spinach – but the Disney move is on a much grander scale.

Current branded items include: Apples, Watermelon, Peaches, Plums, Nectarines, Persimmons, Pomegranates, Oranges, Clementines, Lemons, Grapes, Pumpkins, Gourds, and Potatoes.

The irony here is that many a McDonald’s Happy Meal has been accompanied with a Disney character. However… Disney pulled out of sponsoring McDonald’s food some months ago.
