When Nestle took over sponsorship of Epcot’s The Land from Kraft in 1993, changes were made in the pavilions attractions to better align with the new sponsor and more current ideas about food science and nutrition.

The U.S.D.A. officially adopted The Food Pyramid in 1992, so Kitchen Kabaret’s show focusing on the four basic food groups was no longer relevant. In its place, WDI created a new show, “Food Rocks,” which addressed not only nutrition but also concepts for health like the need to exercise. Host Füd Wrapper (Tone Loc) also drove home the point that consumers should educate themselves about the foods they ate by consulting the label. As he said, “you’ve got to read the wrapper.” And that’s how a song about an aphrodisiac educated a generation of children.
