Wow! Check out the new Live action Dumbo trailer & Poster!

This trailer will give you all the feels! The new Tim Burton’s all-new live-action DUMBO that opens in theaters everywhere March 29th, 2019! This movie looks amazing, and when (if) they sing Baby of Mine, with Dumbo and his mom, I am going to be blubbering. I am so looking forward to this film. 

From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the all-new grand live-action adventure DUMBO expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. 

But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.

There are some great new Otis Spunkmeyer’s Grab N’ Go treats that feature convenient, individually packaged snacks that will fit perfectly in their kid’s suitcase pocket.  Great for summer camp essentials, or a summer snack. These treats are made with no funky ingredients! If you are not familiar with Otis Spunkmeyer here is a little more about them from the website: 

Otis Spunkmeyer originated 40 years ago with one goal in mind: make delicious, fresh baked cookies. Today, Otis Spunkmeyer has become the #1 selling foodservice cookie dough in America - and the #1 selling cookie dough in fundraising. At Otis Spunkmeyer, they spend their days baking, experimenting, testing and talking about delicious baked goods. Otis Spunkmeyer’s goal is to keep improving, so they made better treats with ‘No Funky Stuff’, meaning no partially hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, and artificial colors and flavors. 

I grew up loving the surprise of an Otis Spunkmeyer treat in my lunch box, and now I can surprise my daughter with fun Otis Spunkmeyer’s Grab N’ Go treats. Great for summer camp essentials, or a summer snack. The sweets that are available are:

  • Chocolate Chunk Cookies - with molasses and dark Swiss chocolate chunks
  • Iced Lemon Loaf Cakes - lemon loaf cake with tangy, lemon icing

  • Chocolate Mini Brownie Bites - bite-sized chocolate treats
I was excited when I came to learn that Otis Spunkmeyer’s snack treats are not only great tasting but have no funky stuff added to them. Otis Spunkmeyer removed the partially hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, and artificial colors and flavors you'll find in some other snacks. That is such a great thing, yummy treats without the junk that is something I can approve of. I was very fortunate to be able to try out a few of the new sweets!
