Barbie has a complicated relationship with food. We all know that her figure is a human impossibility, but was food even portrayed in Barbie’s world? And if Barbie were to enter the real world, what would her food look like? Several food manufacturers say they know.

Look to 1965

In 1965 Slumber Party Barbie was released. The package included the slender, curvaceous doll, pajamas, curlers, bobby pins, a brush, and a scale permanently set to 110 pounds, in addition to a book titled, “How to Lose Weight.”

Collectors would likely pay a fortune for a mint version. There are newer slumber party Barbies available on eBay, at reasonable prices, but we couldn’t find an original available at the moment.

If the scale is your focus, we did find one on Etsy.

I guess the answer is, Barbie doesn’t eat much at all.

In the real world, leading up to the release of the barbie movie, many food manufacturers have collaborated on products – many of them quite pink. And sparkly.

Cold Stone Creamery – Glittery Pink Ice Cream

Cold Stone Creamery partnered with Warner Bros. Pictures and Mattel to bring us Pink Cotton Candy ice cream. This Barbie-inspired flavor is available in-store and online on its own for a limited time, while supplies last.

They are offering an “All That Glitters is Pink Creation”, which is made from the Pink Cotton Candy Ice Cream with graham cracker pie crust crumbles, “Dance Party Sprinkles” and whipped topping.

There is also a cake you can order for your Barbicore parties. The Cold Stone Press Release states: “Layers of moist Yellow Cake and Pink Cotton Candy Ice Cream with Dance Party Sprinkles wrapped in fluffy White Frosting.” 

The company is also running a Barbie The Movie Sweepstakes, with a chance to win themed prize packages, including movie tickets via Fandango, Cold Stone Creamery gift cards and a grand prize that includes a Barbie Dreamhouse.

To enter, visit the brand website between June 28th and Aug. 8, 20023.

Whole Foods Market decided Barbie and pasta were a match made in pink heaven. They are offering a whole line of pastas made by Pastifica Di Martino.

Visit the Pastifica Di Martino website for even more Barbie products including spaghetti, macaroni, alphabet shaped pasta, and others, including a keepsake tin complete with multiple packs of pasta, a Barbie chef doll, and a collection of recipes.

We Can See Barbie Eating Pinkberry

If there was ever a natural collaboration for Barbie, it might be this one with Pinkberry. The name says it all.

The brand has debuted Barbie Land Berry Pink frozen yogurt. It is a strawberry and dragon-fruit flavored yogurt, topped with “Dream Sprinkles”, which are made up of pink and white sprinkles, silver sugar and sugary stars.

Krispy Kreme Is On Board

In the Philippines, Krispy Kreme is several doughnuts: The Original, The Dreamer, and The Girl Boss, which have blue icing and pink and blue sprinkles, and The Barbie, which is pink, with a sparkly glaze.

To wash it down they have the Cotton Candy Chiller, a combo of a “kreme” base, cotton candy flavor and pink “glittergelli,” which, is just what it sounds like – jelly full of glitter. But that’s not all; it gets topped with whipped cream, sprinkles and “Barbie candy”.

There’s Pink Lemonade – Of Course!

The beverage brand Swoon has come out with a zero-sugar pink lemonade with a strawberry-lemon flavor. The brand boasts that it is made with 100% natural lemon juice concentrate, and is paleo-friendly, gluten-free and keto.

10% of net profits from these specific sales will support the Barbie Dream Gap Project, which provides resources, curriculum, skills development and leadership opportunities to girls between the ages of 5 and 10 across the world.

You can find Swoon online and nationwide at Whole Foods, Publix, Target, Walmart, through Amazon, and other stores.

Barbie Inspired Cafés – Official and Not

Chicago and New York boast a Malibu Barbie Café, which is apparently not an official movie collaboration. They have been open for months, and the idea is to transport you to 1970s Malibu the moment you enter. 

The bright colors and retro beach motifs do just that, as does the life-size Barbie “box”, so that you can set inside, become your best barbie, and snap away for photo-ops. 

The menu, of course, continues the theme with Pacific Paradise Pancakes, West Coast Wave Wedge Salad, a California Dreamin’ Club Sandwich, and the Anything is Possible Sundae.

What’s Up With “Barbie Feet” Trend?

If you were someone who played with Barbie, you are definitely aware that Barbie’s feet remain in a high arch, ready to take on high heels, and chances are even if you did not play with Barbie yourself, you are familiar with this feature. Why are Barbie’s feet the way they are, and does it matter? Is there any greater meaning to that high arched foot, other than what meets the eye?

The new Barbie movie is out, and the trailer is built around an iconic image of Barbie stepping out of her heels – as her feet remain in that tiptoe, high arched position.

What is medical gaslighting? Medical gaslighting refers to a situation in which healthcare providers dismiss or diminish the symptoms that an individual is experiencing, attempting to persuade them that the symptoms are attributed to an alternative cause or are mere figments of their imagination. Medical gaslighting can leave you questioning your own experience. And at worse can lead to undiagnosed serious illness.

Cash. It never used to be controversial, but these days it appears that there are those on both sides of the coin (so to speak). For those of us of a certain age we can remember our mothers always telling us to keep a $20 bill in our shoe or bra, in case of emergencies.
