“Every family has a kid that won’t eat…” said “old Ralphie” in A Christmas Story.
I can attest that the notion is true.
In my family, my middle guy (Scotty, age 6) won’t eat much – unless, of course, it’s shaped like Mickey Mouse.
So the recent discovery that the same “Mickey Mouse-shaped” ice cream treat found in the Disney parks is coming to the local supermarket fridge made this dad pretty happy.

Part of the Disney experience involves eating all kinds of foods shaped like everyone’s favorite mouse. If you’ve ever been to Disney World, chances are you’ve seen plenty of other park-goers with a chocolate-covered Mickey-shaped ice cream bar in hand. The simple treat is available all over the parks, and soon, we’re going to be able to enjoy them from our own homes.
According to Nestlé, the company will be bringing the Mickey ice cream bars, a longtime fav, to grocery stores “in the coming months” in honor of Mickey Mouse’s recent 90th birthday.
A Nestlé spokesperson told Delish: “We are excited to confirm that the Mickey Ice Cream bars will be available in stores for a limited time.” No word on exactly when or where the Mickey-shaped ice cream will hit freezers, but we will update as we hear more details!
Count me on the above!
Hopefully there are churros in the offing, as well.
What about you? Will you pick these up in your local market?
