With Beauty and the Beast 3D hitting theaters this past Friday, Disney’s Soda Fountain is celebrating with a special movie themed sundae. My family and I hit the road to Hollywood to check it out.
Almond Praline Ice Cream with a hint of strawberry sauce, swirls of whipped cream, and topped with a “Luscious” candy rose was the description.
However, as soon as it arrived at the table, I noticed that the sundae also had caramel in it! SCORE!
Although I’m still a bit sad about the fact that the Soda Fountain switched from Dewar’s ice cream to Dreyer’s, the Almond Praline that was used in this sundae was quite tasty!
I am normally not a big strawberry sauce fan, but it literally was just a “hint,” so it was not too overpowering. In fact, the hint of strawberry combined with the caramel and ice cream was the perfect mix of sweet.
Now, onto that “Luscious” rose. The candy rose that came with the sundae was really adorable. It was the perfect addition to complete the theme of the sundae. The rose was colored melting chocolate made from a rose candy mold that was presented on a cute swizzle stick.
I did have a bite of the rose and honestly it was nothing special. Not great, not bad; just not a lot of flavor. It did, however, get eaten, so no complaints here. I was just more interested in the yummy ice cream!
Overall, I think the following picture tells the story.
If you haven’t seen the new Beauty and the Beast 3D, I really recommend taking the whole family. My family was lucky to see an advanced screening (THANK YOU, DISNEY) and all 4 of us really enjoyed it.
Normally I am not a huge 3D fan, but the 3D used in Beauty and the Beast is absolutely stunning. The colors and scenes are so crisp without being “jump out at you” annoying. It was so wonderful to see one of my favorite Disney classics revamped into an even more amazing masterpiece than it already was.
Have you seen Beauty and the Beast in 3D yet? If not, I say get to it while it’s still in theaters.
