I’ve made some great friends through this blog, and one of them sent me to Disneyland with a fantastic suggestion — “Get the Caramel Popcorn in DCA!” he said.
As it happens this caramel popcorn isn’t all that prevalent in Disneyland. From what I can gather, they only have it at Disney California Adventure, and only at two or three locations in the park! This one is by Mickey’s Fun Wheel on Paradise Pier. There’s also one by Soarin’ Over California.
What else is interesting about this snack is that there isn’t a long process to adding the caramel after the popcorn has popped. They use a special contraption that pops the corn and adds the caramel all at one time! Genius!
This caramel corn starts with your favorite Disney popcorn — buttery kernels of fluffy white corn that we all know and love. Then slathers it in a thin layer of caramel for just the right amount of sweetness.
I purchased this corn with only a few minutes to snack on it — just to get the taste and flavor before heading over to another engagement. Well, don’t you know I ate almost half the container in about 5 minutes! It was amazing. Like nothing I’ve ever had before.
For those who want to know how this compares to Werther’s caramel corn in Epcot, it’s lighter — less sticky and sugary. I love both versions of Disney caramel corn (and sometimes sticky and sugary is where it’s at!), so I’m happy to say that I have a vice on both coasts… well, I think I’m happy to say that…
