Light Side ice cream & Dark Side ice cream

Brooklyn-based creamery teamed up with Disney and this is what they got:

The Light Side is made out of white marshmallows, homemade crispie clusters, with a smattering of handmade cocoa crispies, representing the dark side that remains undercover in the light. At the same time, the Dark Side ice cream is “an ultra-dark chocolate ice cream with espresso fudge brownies, cocoa crispies, and white chocolate pearls (to represent the light still hiding in the dark, waiting to burst through).”

Would you just look at them?!

Would you just look at them?! Yumm, Yumm!


The flavors won’t be sold in the stores. They can, however, arrive by online order – part of a four-pack set, costing $36. Shipping costs can get pretty expensive if sent far from New York City, since the ice cream requires express service in order to not become soup. First shipments will arrive in American homes starting the 15th of Dec.


Shall we all move to NYC for a bit, eh?

So, Mickey is the official mascot of Disney. He is a an animal cartoon and was created in 1928 by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks. He is part of a gang, along with his girlfriend – Minnie Mouse, his dog – Pluto and his friends – Goofy and Donald Duck with girlfriend, Daisy.

Mickey’s body is made out of circles, to make the character easy to animate. And that is a reason why Mickey is easy for the audience to recognize, his ears being an unofficial trademark. There is even a symbol used to represent Mickey – Mickey Mouse

The original voice of Mickey is Walt Disney himself, the co-creator of Mickey and founder of the Walt Disney Company! It turns out even more cute – starting from 1977, the voice of Mickey Mouse was Wayne Allwine, who was married in real life to Russi Taylor, the voice of Mickey girlfriend, Minnie Mouse!

Mickey Mouse is so famous that he’s received ten nominations for the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film and in November 1978, in honor of his 50th anniversary, Mickey became the first cartoon character to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
