Snack Series: Disneyland’s Chili Lime Corn on the Cob

Dallas is pretty warm today, so I thought we’d check out one of the fun, summer-y Disneyland treats I sampled last August in Disneyland Resort!

The Chili Lime Corn on the Cob can be found in several locations around Disney California Adventure (usually accompanied by chimichangas or Turkey Legs)…

Heather and I grabbed one of these while doing our own little food tour of DCA during the D23 Expo, and we were pleasantly surprised. Despite the “chili lime” moniker, the taste was overall one of regular, buttery corn on the cob.

But there was a pleasant sweet/sour flavor from the lime and a nice heat from the chili, making it a good middle-of-the-road snack for picky eaters and adventurous eaters alike.

You also get a serving of veggies, so that right there is a reason to snap up this snack! ;-)

All kidding aside, we really did enjoy this one. Get it for a snack, or pair it with a chimichanga or Turkey Leg for a full meal! (Although I’m not sure you’ll have room for the corn after eating a Turkey Leg… .)

    I like that they offer something that isn’t totally junk food but $4.39 for an ear of corn seems really, really overpriced even for Disney.

    I have not had this, but it looks divine! I LOVE corn on the cob!
    Is there something similar at WDW?

    I wish I would have known about this when I was out in California Oct 2009! I’m with Amy, they should bring this to Florida!

    I have had this before…we got it along with a turkey leg (with 900 grams of sodium!) to eat while we were watching World of Color. I have to say, the one I ate was SPicY! but good. Put on some lip balm before eating so your lips won’t burn! Ha ha :)

    Tracy — Great point!

    Amy — They do have corn on the cob at WDW at Liberty Square, but it’s not this good!

    Marcellina — Sounds like you need to plan a trip to Cali!

    Angela — Ha! Great advice! I didn’t find mine too spicy, but I pretty much chug Frank’s Red Hot sauce, so I’m not necessarily a good judge! ;-)

    $4.39?

    That’s just plain ridiculous, especially when I can get corn on the cob here at the local grocery store for 50 cents and top it with my own toppings with that said, I’m from South Texas and we like to grill them, add mayonnaise, chilli powder and mexican white cheese such as this brand. They sell it at most walmarts.

    BUT!! It’s good to know that it’s tasty. Just might have to give it a try in 2013, our next trip to DL.

    I had one of these when I was in Disneyland and I was sorely disappointed. The price was outrageous to begin with, and then the corn itself was mushy and basically flavorless. Would never buy it again. Maybe I just got a bad batch!

  8. Nikolee says:

    I love corn on the cob with toppings so this sounds does good but the price is crazy and when I get to the park, the ears of corn so happen to be quite small so it just seems stupid to buy one. I’m hoping there’ll be a day that the corn is bigger when I’m in the park to try this!

  9. Sue says:

    The corn at DLR used to be $4.75, so they brought the price down a little. (or, the $4.39 is before tax? which would bring it to $4.75.) The plain buttered corn was $2 at MK at the time I was making my observations.

    just got back from Disneyland ….corn on cob was excellent! a must try snack! while its warm i open 1 pack of mayonnaise yes, mayonnaise squirt it in wrapper and twist cob so it spreads evenly. add salt to your taste,lemon chili corn on cob delicious Disney treat.

    I just got home from Disneyland and had one if these each of the last two days I was there. It was $4.56+ tax for each cob and they were not exceptionally large however I found them to be worth it, to be able to have a healthier snack option on the go. I found that the corn felt fresher and had stronger flavours earlier in the day, as odd as it sounds 10 am seemed like the best time to have them as that was when I could guarantee they were fresh.
