Looks like a firefly

I think maybe the food coop and salt dome were red herrings. Media plants to defray suspicion. We've been discussing irrelevant topics the last two years. "ha ha ha"

I assume it's probably because it's going to be sold all over Disney Parks. I equate it as she is the more recognizable character in their head to brand on the bottle and it will be sold with all of the other random food products that mildly relate like when you go into Candy Cauldron in Disney Springs and they sell "Simba's Sour Gummy Worms" and "Chip and Dale's Candied Nuts."

Why am I not surprised people are complaining about a hot sauce bottle on here lol. Cus everything sold at a Publix or Kroger has their logo stamped all over it 🙄

Agreed. Can’t stand that Tiana’s Foods logo.

The weirdest thing is that at the top, where it would make perfect sense if they were planning on doing this to put the flower logo over the barn entrance, they've done the work to create an entirely different flame logo and ornate filigree. Can anyone make out what that is between "Hot" and "Sauce"?

Whatever the rationale, the branding looks much better than the Tiana’s Foods version.

Yes, I don't see the logo anywhere and also find this confusing. It almost seems like they are not 100% confident in the quality of the hot sauce and so don't want it too closely associated with Tiana's life's work as depicted in the ride.

Where do you see that? Mama Odie's being a Tiana's Foods brand would make sense, but I don't see either logo -- the Tiana's Foods hexagon or the Tiana's Hot Sauce circle logo -- on the Mama Odie's bottle.

So it looks like it has the Tiana's Foods logo on it, so "Mama Odie's" in this context is just the brand within Tiana's Foods.

I don't think it necessarily has to be one or the other. It would be funny if she was laughing at us/ messing with us.

Hopefully it's a simple Louisiana hot sauce. Could go nicely with my Plaza Inn fried chicken.

I'd said before that Mama Odie sending us down the drop didn't necessarily need to be to help us, as she seems the mischievous type to just screw with us for no reason. But now I wonder if she's just trying to take out the competition. Begun, the sauce wars have.

Mama Odie has a storefront, too? Or do they just carry her hot sauce at Publix?
