Spooky Snacks at Disney

Monday, September 24, 2018

Happy Fall babes! I’m back- and this time there’s food involved! One of my favorite things to do at Disneyland (and in general) is eat! There are a number of seasonal offerings at the Disneyland Resort and California Adventure each time Halloweentime rolls around. I always like to pick out the tastiest sounding ones to try first, and that’s exactly what this post is about! I tried eight of the new treats that were calling my name- well, my stomach’s name. 

Full disclosure: I’m a sucker for holiday sweets, but savory foods are more my go-to. So you know know the sweet treat is a winner if it’s on my list!

Up first we have the Spice Bundt Cake! I honestly didn’t expect too much from this guy, but it was SO. GOOD. Bryan and I devoured this mini bundt in record time (probably). 
A definite 10/10, the cream cheese frosting center put it in our top spot.

My favorite from last year is BACK! The Slow-Burnin Mac and Cheese cone is just as delicious as it was last year. I will note that it’s spicier than last year, or maybe that’s just my wishful thinking. No this cone isn’t new to me, and I know I obsessed about it last year on instagram already, but I cannot say enough good things about it. Just get it and thank me later. A 9.5/10, the actual cone’s lack flavor sets this back on our list.

Going for another sweet, as one does at Disneyland. The Pumpkin Layered Cheesecake tastes like Thanksgiving and Fall and cozy nights spent baking. Which sounds oddly specific, and it is, but try it and then tell me I’m wrong. A 8/10, loved the pumpkin to cheesecake ratio, just wish there was a bit more topping!

We grabbed a bowl of the Bacon Cheddar Ale soup in a bread bowl, of course, because there’s no other way to do it. Rachel said it best when she admitted it wasn’t “knock your socks off good”, but “went really well with the sourdough.” You just cannot go wrong with a hot soup in a bread bowl, let’s be real. A solid 7/10.

I tried the Oktoberfest Dog with high hopes, mostly because the description and photo drew me in. I love beer cheese and sauerkraut, so I was ready. The toppings were great together, I just found the kielbasa to be a little bit overly peppery. Bryan on the other hand, loved it. A collective 6/10 from us!

Coffee ice cream is in my top three favorite flavors of ice cream, so when I saw the Bat Whoopie Pie had espresso chip ice cream, I knew I needed to try it. While the cake was super moist and the right amount of dense, unfortunately the ice cream was a let down in the espresso flavor department. Haha!  A 6/10.

Funnel Cake Fries are always a good idea, but are Cookies and Cream Funnel Cake Fries? I was actually a little disappointed in these. They weren’t very creamy, they were just very sweet and strangely salty. The redeeming factor were the fries themselves! A no from me, 4/10.

Unfortunately my most-anticipated item was also my least favorite. Maybe it was my high hopes, but the Musubi Special was not great. :-( The rice was undercooked and cold, while the spiced ham was dry. I so wanted to love this snack because I am a huge spam musubi fan! Definitely a 4/10, not disgusting, but I wouldn’t get it again!

Despite a few bummers, I loved trying all of these Halloweentime bites and I’m definitely ready to try some more! Have you tried any of these snacks yet? What are your thoughts, do you agree or disagree? What’s next? Should I try the seasonal churros next?? (Kidding, that’s a no-brainer!)

Hugs & Churros,
