First Look! Epcot’s New Karamell-Küche

Epcot’s Karamell-Küche (German for Caramel Kitchen) opened its doors today for the very first time! You’ll recall, this is the shop that is replacing the old Glas und Porzellan shop at the entrance to the Germany pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase.

Filled with delicious smells of caramel corn and caramel apples, the golden-hued shop beckons those who enter to stare at the incredible treats behind glass counters. Luckily, they’re giving out samples of the caramel corn!

Glass Cases Filled With Treats Line the Shop



From caramel-covered, chocolate-drenched apples; chocolate-covered strawberries drizzled with caramel; incredible cupcakes piled high with frosting and caramel; and caramel corn as far as the eye can see, I challenge you to walk out of this shop without having given in to temptation!

  5. Tanya from Australia says:

    Without these amazing pics I would not know what I am missing! My last trip to WDW was this time last year and since finding this website shortly after returning I realise how much stuff I missed in the food area. Thankyou so much for this daily “treat”!

  9. Katie says:

    OMG did you actually get to try all that?

  11. Jason says:

    Oh my….I know you’ve been mentioning this but this wasn’t what I expected. What a nice surprise to see two days before I head down. (If anyone wants to meet me, follow the trail of caramel drops :)

  12. Claire says:

    jaw currently dropped open!!!………oh wow!!!! I don’t know how on earth I’m going to choose, I knew it was a caramel store but hadn’t realised it was werther’s, they are soo creamy.
    Great photos, thanks for sharing…and making me wish my trip wasn’t a whole 70 days away lol!

  15. Laurin says:

    …and a lot of that stuff can be had with a snack credit! Sweet!

  16. dani says:

    must have cupcake. now.

  17. Susan says:

    Wow… great pictures! I might be using all of my snack credits here during my November trip (and buying a few of those apples!).

  18. Josh says:

    Wow, those are some really great pictures!

    The cupcake looks like it could give someone cardiac arrest though with all that sugar.

    I just love the smell of the shops when they make Caramel popcorn, as it’s just so rich!

  19. Becca says:

    Oh wow – I love Werther’s! That cupcake looks spectacular, definitely one to share.

  20. Alan says:

    This shop is a great idea. Now we won’t run out of sweets on the walk from the French pastry shop to the Norwegian pastry shop.

  21. Steve says:

    Hahaha, I’m with SharonC! I caught myself getting closer to the screen with every picture.

  22. Dana says:

    I love caramel SO much! I wish it was open while I was there. :-(

  23. gonecrusin says:

    OH MY GOSH!!!!!!

  24. Naomi says:

    Only 32 days to go!!!

  25. Mary says:

    The last day of our trip was the 2nd day for the Karamelle K. We used our remaining snack credits to get the vanilla caramel fudge, the pecan bar (HUGE) and the giant chocolate and caramel crisped rice bar (like a small brick-sized). Everything was fantastic. I thought the crisped rice might be hard, but it was soft, fresh and delicious! The caramel has a home-made taste. Wow! Many items were available for snack credit.

  26. Joy says:

    Their caramel is amazing! My husband loves caramel apples so we had to try one of those even though it was $6 and did not count as a snack credit. It was worth every penny! Then we tried the caramel fudge to use a snack credit and it was so good we got another one the next day!

  27. Tracie says:

    The best caramel corn I ever had was sold about 20 years ago near the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California. A little salty. A little buttery. Best when still a little warm. Could NOT stop eating it, even if I was stuffed.

    We moved away from the area but how I looked forward to buying a big bag when I returned for a visit several years later. I was crushed to discover it was no longer being made/sold and have been on the hunt for a substitute since.

    After reading this post, I’m eager to try some of the Karamell Kuche’s version.

  28. carolyn says:

    HOW did I miss this post!?! Oh dear me, I am ready drooling!!! I love caramel! Got to get me some of that chocolate caramel fudge, or caramel popcorn, or cupcake… crud, give me ALL of it please!!! :)

  29. Omg I fell in love with Karamell Kuche as well. The dark chocolate covered strawberries were AMAZING!! Next time I go I have to try an apple :)

  30. Sandra says:

    Anyone with a recipe for the icing on the vanilla cupcake? I have never tasted icing with this exact taste or texture and don’t have any recipes even close.

  31. vanessa says:

    How delicious was the cupcake? I’ve been eying that thing since I saw it, thing is, If I want to keep my weight off this March when I go, I gotta limit my snacks! I’ll be getting the caramel apple with nuts and my boyfriend the popcorn.

  32. vanessa says:

    ^NM I GOT MY ANSWER X_X; The deconstruction of the cupcake made me drool. haha

  33. Miranda says:

    BEST CARAMEL POPCORN EVER! It is absolutely delicious, each piece is completely covered in ooey gooey caramel, and good caramel too. It was so yummy, but my teeth hurt a little afterwards. I hear there cupcakes are amazing also, i regretted not getting one, they looked so gooood, but the popcorn was really good. BY THE WAY, it counted as a snack on the Disney Dining Plan, just a tip :)

  34. Jym says:

    That has to be the most rewarding job in the world. “What do you do for a living?”
    “oh, I give out free caramel corn”.

  35. QueenisNana says:

    I saw something else in those pictures that would do well with some caramel ; )

  36. Barbara says:

    You didn’t say whither or not they have Gluten free some of us can’t eat Gluten and we miss out on a lot of these amazing snakes!
