Tribute to the Sandwich Cookie

I’m not sure about you, but one of my favorite ways to break my diet is with an OCP or an Oreo (or seven). So it’s exciting to see so many wonderful sandwich cookies mixed into the Magic of Disney! Here are a few of my favorite spots for sandwich cookies…

Cape May Cafe Oreo Bon Bons
Nowhere before has the casual Oreo been elevated to such a haute status. The Cape May Cafe Oreo Bon Bon — a confection built upon an Oreo sandwich cookie — has been a staple at the Cape May Cafe evening Clam Bake for years and has risen to minor cult status among Disney fans.

Climb-able Sandwich Cookie
Trust me, you’ve never seen a sandwich cookie this big! Nestled between a massive paper clip and a pile of dirt, this one might not exactly be appetizing, but it sure is interesting. You’ll find it in the “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids,” play area in Disney’s Holllywood Studios.

Oreo Cookie Milkshake at Sci-Fi Dine-In
This luscious treat is the perfect end (or accompaniment) to a meal at Disney’s Hollywood Studios’ Sci-Fi Dine-In! A cool, thick milkshake made with none other than your favorite chocolate sandwich cookie!

Carrot Cake Cookie
Some say it’s cake, some say it’s a cookie, but nobody can argue that it’s certainly a sandwich! Sweet, cream cheese frosting piled between two slices of carrot cake — there’s nothing else like it. Find the Carrot Cake Cookie at Disney’s Hollywood Studios’ Writer’s Stop!

Giant-Sized Oreo Cookies
These have started showing up in the candy shops at Disney Parks, and I’m pretty sure I love them! One Oreo is never enough, so why not just make them H-U-G-E?!?

Even better, you can also decorate them at Goofy’s Candy Company

Hidden Mickey
Another place where sandwich cookies pop up is even more imaginative! Need some Mickey ears? Perfect! This version is at Disney World’s Beaches and Cream, but this is a standard kids’ sundae at lots of spots.

Homemade Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich
And last, but not least, we have to pay homage again to the homemade ice cream cookie sandwich. Found in several spots around Disney World (at least one spot in every park, actually), this delicious work of food art is a must-try for Disney guests. An impossible amount of creamy vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two fresh Tollhouse cookies: this is a snack that eats like a meal!

    Ah! The Tollhouse cookie ice cream sandwich is my favorite, and I have to get it from the Main Street Bakery and eat it on East Center Street. The best time to get them, imo, is first thing in the morning!

    However, I miss the days when they had a nice selection of cookies and you could even mix & match. I used to love getting a chocolate chip cookie & a double chocolate chip cookie with the vanilla ice cream sandwiched in between. Anyone else remember those days?

    The Oreo Bon Bons at Cape May are one of my favorite things about going there!! Nice selection choices :)

  3. says

    LOVE the Oreo Bon Bons!! Just a note, they also have them for dessert in Concierge Level of the Beach Club, I had a few the other day :)

  4. says

    I would have to agree, and say that the tollhouse cookie sandwich looks so good! I’m not the biggest fan of Oreos, so a change in pace is very nice.

    Every time I see that Carrot Cake Cookie though my mouth waters as it looks so tasty!

    the candy shop on the boardwalk has milkshakes made with Edy’s ice cream and its a snack credit, the cookies n cream (like oreo) is SO YUM and they give you a HUGE serving!

  6. Galloping Gourmand says

    I’m one of the (too few) fans of the Sci-Fi. Even those who think the food is counter service quality at full service prices sing the praises of their milkshakes, and I agree. Those things are worth the ADR! Just be sure to tip well, because the waiter is loosing out on a meal.

    Day 1 for all our Disney Trips is to Downtown Disney and Goofy’s Candy Company for a giant sandwich cookie with whatever toppings my mood calls for.

    But we also always hit the Cape May Cafe for the Clam Bake and 1 or 2 (ok, 6) Oreo Bon Bons!

    I became a fan of the Sci Fi Dine In during our trip last year, and when we go back in December, I have GOT to try that Oreo Milkshake!

    James — I remember those days well. I used to get an M&M Sugar Cookie and a chocolate chip cookie… And I agree, morning is the best time for these.

    BrerMatt — Thanks for the news!

    Jenn — Yes. Yes you do. Especially if you have a love for cream cheese frosting, as I do. Take pictures! :-)

    Melissa — Thanks for the corroboration!

    Cody — Thanks for the info! I haven’t stayed concierge at BC, but now I want to!

    Josh — It’s great. Can’t wait to hear your review!!

    Heather — What!? Awesome! I’m headed to the Boardwalk!

    GG — I actually was really impressed with Sci-Fi’s food. It’s the SHORT movie reel that’s annoying there. I don’t want to watch the same stuff over and over again…

    Jeff — Why was I the only one who didn’t know the giant oreos existed?! Can’t wait to hear what you think of the Oreo milkshake! Hope your trip went well this summer!

  9. Galloping Gourmand says

    I was told that they have a short reel at Sci-Fi for a very practical reason: turnover. If it wasn’t shorter than the average meal people would want to stay when they were done eating, or eat slower because they are watching the movie. It would be smart for them to switch out the reel every now and then, or alternate weeks so that each time you go back there is a chance of seeing a new trailer or short film.

    AJ, now I’m craving Oreos. You are the devil. ;)

    Seriously, though, who knew they had so many options for my favorite cookie? I always try to grab one and decorate it from Goofy’s Candy Co, but now I’ll be grabbing the milkshake and some of these other options. And carrot cake cookie? On my solo trips, I usually go to the Studios on Sunday, and grab one of those beauties for the ride home. Yum.

  11. says

    GG — Yep, I know that’s why they do it, but it’s also why I don’t go back as often as I would if it were different. Same with 50’s Prime Time. Frustrating…

    Ryan — You’re the devil for sharing that delicious photo! I can’t wait to try one the next time I’m at Goofy’s!

    Great post! You made my sister and I both crave ice cream cookie sandwiches so much that we had to make home-made ones with fresh baked cookies from a local grocery store!

    hey just got back on sunday from Disney (was there for 9 days).. who knew you could eat that much in 9 days.. anyway the oreo bon bons are so good (the best oreo dessert ever and i have had a lot of different ones) that i wish i hadnt eaten sooo many crab legs first.. also we had the ice cream sandwich from main street bakery. i have always seen them but now i wish i had enjoyed more of them .. so so good.. .. wrong post I know but the butterfinger cupcake was as good as the reviews say they are ….

  14. CanadiansloveWDW says

    favorite meal was le cellier, NY strip dressed like a filet.. yum yum .. but a close second was the swordfish with risotto at Coral reef.( my choice if you ever do a best fish dish at Disney… i was not at all impressed with the food at cinderellas royal table… the steak was bland. . best dessert this year was the maple creme brulee at le cellier… the salmon at Akurhas hall was really good too…
