Brooks Tropicals has been growing tropical fruits and vegetables in Florida and the Caribbean since the 1920s. Brooks sells more than 28 different tropical fruits and vegetables; its specialties are SlimCado avocados, Caribbean Red papayas and Florida starfruit. Representing Brooks Tropicals at this event will be Mary Ostlund, director of marketing

Hispanics call Caribbean Red papayas by the nickname “fruta bomba,” literally “bomb fruit.” One look at the three-to-five-pound fruit will tell you why. Consumers sometimes wonder whether the Caribbean Red is genetically modified, which it is not. It is naturally large and naturally good for you.

The SlimCado has a great avocado taste; it’s a much lighter-tasting avocado. It should be, with less than half the calories and a third less fat than the Hass avocado. And it’s so much bigger! SlimCado avocados can be three to five times larger than a Hass avocado.

Last but not least, the last tropical fruit star of the menu for this event is a star in itself – the starfruit. Brooks Tropicals was a U.S. pioneer for this Asian treat. Starfruit grow under the canopy of the rainforests in Southeast Asia. In Florida, Brooks grows them in the sandy soils of Pine Island on the west coast of Florida.

    Trying to get in on The Wave and The Great Movie Ride!

  3. Janet says:

    I was just wondering how long it usually takes for them to contact you to get billing info? I have never done an event before and I desperately want to do The Great Movie Ride event and I responded to the email within a half hour, and I am hoping it is not sold out already.

  4. AJ says:

    Kelly — Sounds yummy! Give us a full report when you get back!

    Amy — Good luck!!

    Janet — I’m not sure. I only know about the event some friends of mine DIDN’T get into ;-) Usually it takes a while — even a couple of weeks.

  5. Nate says:

    First, as a graphic design major in college I want to know who designed this Wave menu and what were they thinking!?! And can I have their job!? :)

    Second — what fun!! AJ, how do you feel about the pricing of these events? Although the experience sounds wonderful, $155 is a LOT of money. But people will pay it and if I were down in Orlando, I’d probably try to set aside $300 for this, too.

    Oh, and if anyone does the Food & Wine preview, enjoy the Oregon blue! I live in Oregon and LOVE our blue cheese!!! :)

  6. Nate says:

    Unless you did it, AJ – in which case it looks great! :)

  7. AJ says:

    Nate — Ha! You SHOULD get a job at Disney graphic design! That’d be awesome! As for pricing, I think it’s a bit high. But I DO know that that booking something like a Great Movie Ride dinner privately is devastatingly expensive…

  8. Wendy says:

    Just got my callback for the Great Movie Ride dinner! So excited that we’re in…

    Fairly quick callback!

  9. AJ says:

    Wendy — Great news!! Can’t wait to see your pictures!
