Now available are air fresheners that smell and look like the popular turkey-leg treat at theme parks. Thankfully, they are not "actual size," measuring about 5 1/2 inches long. There's a loop suitable for hanging them from rear-view mirrors.
But the aroma is spot-on and strong. While that sounds delicious to some folks, I'm afraid to put it in my car because my sense is that the scent will soak right into the seats and never let go. Can you imagine the smell after sitting in the Florida sun for hours?
I also purchased the version shaped like the Mickey Premium Bar, the chocolate-covered, vanilla ice cream treat that looks like Mickey Mouse's head. Its scent isn't as overpowering, but it's not that chocolaty. It smells very sugary.
In fairness, I don't associate smell with the Mickey bar. But the sight of one gives me the munchies, and this air freshener looks the part and has "Disney Parks" stamped on its wooden handle.
Other options are candy-apple scent and the Mickey waffle scent.
Certainly, there are other aromas from the parks I might gravitate toward, such as the Citrus Swirl from Adventureland, which would be very Florida. Many folks would like to be Dole Whip-ped in their car on a regular basis.
Should these new products be taken seriously? They're more like a stocking stuffer or a gag gift (though the leg didn't smell THAT bad). The price is right for such tomfoolery: $5.95 apiece.
