A new sweet has come just in time to celebrate the Disney 1ooth anniversary, a candy apple in the shape of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit from the classic Disney Bros. Studios cartoons!
Five years before Mickey, Walt Disney and his partner Ub Iwerks developed the character of a lovable yet sassy rabbit whose expressive features revolutionized the early animation realm. Unfortunately, the duo would lose the rights to the popular character in a crushing blow which eventually had a silver lining: forced to head back to the drawing board, Walt and Ub would create the iconic Mickey Mouse.
Today, Disney CEO Bob Iger regained the rights to Oswald’s original design and cartoons, leading to his appearances in a few Disney Parks worldwide, most notably the Disneyland Resort in Southern California! At the Buena Vista Street area of Disney California Adventure, which transports Guests to Los Angeles as experienced by Walt Disney upon his arrival in the 1920s, Oswald features as a walkaround character and has his own retail location: Oswald’s Service Station.
Moreover, now you can enjoy a delicious dessert inspired by Oswald’s friendly face at Buena Vista Street’s Trolley Treats for a limited time! As described on its website, Trolley Treats sells “classic candies, old-fashioned confections, and all kinds of freshly made treats—from toffee and fudge to caramel apples and other seasonal favorites.”
Of course, candy apples from Marceline’s at Downtown Disney, as well as the Mainstreet Candy Palace and other locations at the Disneyland Resort, are well-known and well-loved edible souvenirs. Typically, these caramel apples with elaborate chocolate and candy decorations draw their inspiration from Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, or other character favorites from the Fab Five, and even seasonal selections like Jack Skellington or Christmas tree ornaments at the holidays.
In fact, the new Oswald apple offers much the same, with his head being a green Granny Smith apple covered in dark chocolate and rabbit ears made from cereal treats! In addition, his face is a white chocolate spread with piped chocolate details.
According to the latest DisneyEats Foodie Guide, Guests visiting the Disneyland Resort can grab an Oswald the Lucky Rabbit Candy Apple to take home from now until February 16, 2023!
