Beauty & the Beast is one of my all-time favorite Disney movies.  I actually did my high school French class project on it, translating the song “Tale as Old as Time” into French.  I still can’t hear the song without “belle et la bête” running through my head.

The live action version of Beauty & the Beast will be in theaters soon, and I can’t wait.  But classics will always have a special place in my heart so I’m very happy that the 25th Anniversary Edition of Beauty & the Beast is available on Blu-ray/DVD/Digital combo pack today!

Though I must say seeing the 25th anniversary edition of something I loved in what I thought was the not-so-distant past makes me suddenly feel very old.

The Grey Stuff

When the Be Our Guest restaurant opened at the Magic Kingdom one of the most raved-about offerings was “The Grey Stuff”.  If you remember the lyrics:

“Try the grey stuff, it’s delicious!
Don’t believe me? Ask the dishes!”

The Imagineers at Disney took that line and created a very tasty dessert.  It’s often served on a plate on a large rectangular brownie.  I wanted to make something special for our viewing of the (aff) Beauty & the Beast 25th Anniversary Edition that our friends at Disney sent us to review.

These are so easy to make and are such a fun treat for movie watching.  Bubbles enjoyed being the one to crush the cookies and helping decorate with the edible silver pearls so it’s something kids could easily help with.
