Goldfish are a family-favorite snack, already available in multiple themes, colors and flavor combinations. Now, the cracker company is taking its catchphrase — “The Snack That Smiles” — to a fun new level. To celebrate the upcoming release of Disney/Pixar’s “Toy Story 4,” Pepperidge Farm will start selling a limited-edition version of the crackers starring some of the franchise’s favorite characters on May 1, 2019.
These special “Toy Story”-themed crackers will come in the classic cheddar Goldfish flavor, but instead of the adorable fish, snackers will find Woody the cowboy and space ranger Buzz Lightyear in the bag. A nod to Bo Peep, who is returning to the “Toy Story” franchise after an extended absence—with a new look and attitude—will also be in the bag, with blue crackers in the mix.
Sales are scheduled to start on May 1. However, there has been talk about Pepperidge Farms possibly releasing early shipments to stores before that target date. So if these crackers are on your “must-have” list, you may want to start checking your favorite store’s snack aisle soon!
And if you’re looking for more snacks to bring to the party, check out Edy’s line of “Toy Story 4” ice cream flavors! Nestle has released two new flavors. There’s Cinnamon Churro Carnival Combo, a vanilla ice cream with cinnamon and churro swirls. And you can also pick up Chocolate Peanut Butter Midway Mash, which is a chocolate ice cream crammed full of peanut butter and chocolate chunks. YUM!
Disney fans like Instagram user @mouse.people got the early scoop on the flavors when they were released earlier this year and posted their lucky snack finds.
The “Toy Story” limited-edition ice cream flavors will only be sold through September, according to PEOPLE.
The latest installment of the “Toy Story” franchise flies into theaters on June 21 and anticipation has been building for months. Back in March, Disney-Pixar released the first full trailer for the movie. With more than 41 million views on YouTube alone, it’s clear that both die-hard and casual fans are looking forward to seeing what happens next with Woody, Buzz and the rest of the gang now that they’ve moved on from Andy’s room.
Are you counting down the day’s to the movie’s release?
