This is one of the fun posts I promised in my last Newsletter, and I’m pretty excited to explore the intricate differences between these two Disney favorites!
Disney World and Disneyland both have some great signature food items — Dole Whips, Mickey Premium Bars, popcorn, pretzels… but only Disneyland has Tiger Tails AND Tigger Tails! Now, the names can get confusing, so let’s check out how to tell them apart ;-):
If you like marshmallows, caramel, and chocolate — this is the treat for you. Named after everyone’s favorite bounceriffic tiger, Tigger, these treats are homemade in Disneyland’s Pooh Corner!
Now, I’ll be honest and say that I’m not a HUGE marshmallow fan. I like them best when they’re toasted and smushed between chocolate and graham crackers or spread between bread with some gooey peanut butter in a fluffernutter, so I wasn’t really expecting to like the Tigger Tail all that much. After all, it’s essentially four giant marshmallows on a stick, coated in caramel, and then coated in orange-colored white chocolate…
…but Oh My Yum! This was actually delicious! Those of you who don’t think marshmallows are for you (chris — this means you), you still have to try this. Just be careful not to get stuck with the stick! Once again, I say “We Love Pooh!”
Bread-lovers, get ready for heaven on Earth! Tiger Tails can be found at Bengal Barbecue — a teeny-tiny counter-service spot that happens to be a hot-bed for delicious portable snacks like spiced chicken and steak skewers and bacon-wrapped asparagus.
An order of Tiger Tails will bring out two grilled bread “tails,” and I know what you’re thinking — how can a couple pieces of bread be blog-worthy? That’s what I thought, too. I didn’t understand why I was hearing all about these things — how can they be that great?
Now I’m a convert. These are the lightest, most flavorful pieces of bread I’ve ever tasted. They’re definitely worth ordering, and I can highly recommend using them as a “bun” for the meat on the spicy skewers! My husband and I were bowled over.
So, there’s the difference — Tiger Tails = savory; Tigger Tails = sweet; Both = delicious! These are great walk-around Disneyland treats that will cover you no matter what you’re craving!
What are your favorite Disneyland or Disney World signature treats? Would love to hear what YOU think is blog-worthy in the Disney parks (yep — always looking for new ideas of food to try!). Let me know your ideas in the comments section below.
