Funko POP! vinyl figures are becoming addictive. I’m obsessed! My latest acquisition is this Mickey Mouse with a Mickey Bar HOT TOPIC figure from the Mickey and Friends line. I hate that I have been sucked into the trap of wanting the exclusive stuff!
“HOT TOPIC is the destination for music and pop culture-inspired clothes and accessories, plus fashion apparel for girls and guys. How about Funko figures from your favorite characters? We have those, too. Hot Topic – totally obsessed for 25 years.” At least that’s how they describe themselves on the official website. Hmm. ‘Obsessed’. I think that word means what I think it means!
When I first saw this figure, I wasn’t immediately sold on it, although the red Mickey Bar exerted a strong pull against my Disney Park nostalgia. But when I saw it was a Hot Topic Exclusive, the deal was all but done.
A Mickey (Premium Ice Cream) Bar is a chocolate-coated vanilla ice cream bar designed with the shape of Mickey Mouse’s head. But as you might expect, it’s supposed to be brown. This one in Mickey’s vinyl hand is red. Is there red chocolate? Or is this some rare strawberry variant? I think it’s likely just meant to emulate the colour of a heart.

Again, the packaging isn’t anything special, but I will keep the box as this is an exclusive release. But I will be displaying Mickey and his bar out of his box.
Mickey has collapsed from all of the ice cream bars he’s eaten. Been there. Done that.
If Mickey and candy are a match made in heaven for you, check out my Mickey Mouse Clubhouse candy fan. It’s in the shape of a helicopter and, yes, it’s filled with candy!
