Have you seen the latest news from Animal Kingdom? No, I am not talking about the grand opening of the long awaited Starbucks. I am referring to Zuri’s Sweet Shop. NDK and I saw the signs up for this new snack shack in Harambe two weeks ago, but we had no idea what would be served – treats resembling animal poop. Yes, I just said that. Not all treats are of that idea, but if you look at the press release images, you can see them on the shelf underneath the cute animal cookies.

We will be visiting the parks soon, and I will have to actually see this for myself. But as far as trying it, that I am not so sure of. Here is the official press release and photos from Disney. What do you think of this?
