I don’t know how many Minnie Mouse ear headbands I have in my collection, but I can’t wait to add the new Mexican Sweet Bread ears to it!

The headbands can be found at the Mexico pavilion in Epcot, near The Gran Fiesta Tour featuring the Three Caballeros, and across stores in both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort.

These beautiful ears were designed to represent the very popular Mexican sweet bread (pan dulce) with a crunchy topping, usually made with sugar, butter, and flour. The topping cracks during the baking process, giving the sweet treat a shell-like appearance. This pan dulce is perfect for breakfast (with a nice cup of café!) or during the merienda (afternoon snack).

Let’s take a deep look at the design of the headband. Empecemos with the headband itself – it is covered with a satin fabric and inner soft velvet lining.

The bow is inspired, designed and colored after the Mexican traditional textiles stripes (zarape) and covered with clear flat sequins that add more brillo!

The ears are a mix of soft suede and puff paint, in an iconic shell-like design to add a crackle texture that perfectly resembles the crunchy topping of the bread. How creative!

Aren’t they adorable? ¡Claro que sí!  

Comments

  • I guess I’ll try again, will there be any ears commemorating other countries other than Mexico?
    Obviously the new Americana headbands are available, but it would be nice for those of us from other Nations see our favorite desserts or heritage gain some favor with cute headbands too.
