Is the "Grey Stuff" any good?

I'm just wondering if it worth a try.

"Try the grey stuff; it's delicious! Don't belive me? Ask the dishes!"

We just went to Be Our Guest for lunch on Sunday, all excited to try the grey stuff we'd heard about, but it was not on the menu. Maybe it is only at dinner?

Also, a free tip:

You know how you're supposed to go to eat at counter service at 11:00 on crowded days to avoid the crazy lunch rush? In our experience on Sunday, it's the opposite at Be Our Guest. When we arrived at 11:00, the line was well past the bridge leading into the restaurant. When we left at 12:45, the line was only about a quarter that length. Seems like everybody has the idea to beat the crowd, and it's backfiring.

We were there during the last MNSSHP. They told us the Gray Stuff is not on the menu, you have to request it and they will sometimes bring it to you, but not always.

I believe the grey stuff is actually chocolate mousse. Probably the same stuff which is inside the chocolate cream puff, which by the way is very good!It is my understanding it is only brought out at dinner, and not always even then.

We ate at our BOG during previews, and since it was our anniversary our server brought us out "The Grey Stuff" at the end of our meal. She said it was only brought out for special occasions.

It has the texture of mousse, but it is not chocolate mousse. In fact it is next to flavorless, so if you are expecting mousse like you might get at say, Chefs de France or Le Cellier, you may be disappointed.

It's cookies and cream mousse (like Oreos although I am sure they don't use actual Oreos). It's not on the menu, some say they have been brought it when asked, others say they've been told it's only for special occasions.

It is a cookie and cream whipped cheese I believe. I thought it was very good when I had it (we went for my birthday so it was brought out with my dessert). It is just a little dollop of it though- like a tablespoon or so on the plate.

From what I've heard it's a lot of hype about a oreo cookie & cream type mousse with maybe whipped cream/cream cheese and whipped smooth. That may not be how it's made, but must have a similar taste from what I've heard. Forgot to ask when we were in BOG.
