Although I’ve seen them around for quite some time, I had never actually purchased a Pretzel Rod from any of the Disneyland Resort shops. They come in a variety of “styles;” all are dipped in chocolate, but some have a coating of M & M’s, some have seasonal sprinkles, and I’ve even seen them coated with Conversation Hearts around Valentine’s Day… . But there was one that caught my eye on my last trip to Pooh Corner, nestled back in Critter Country.
Available in both dark and milk chocolate, the Cashew Pretzel Rod is hand dipped with love in the candy kitchens of the Disneyland Resort. At $4.50 a pop, they aren’t cheap; but they are big enough to share with a friend, which is exactly what I did! After purchasing, my snack buddy and I headed to the waterside seating over at The Hungry Bear to enjoy our tasty treat.
Although it was extremely delicious (I am a big cashew fan), I didn’t like how it was served cold. I do understand that it has to be kept in a refrigerated case, but it made it hard to break and bite into.
The cashews were aplenty, you can tell by how wide this thing is; they were big, crunchy and fresh tasting. The sweet caramel was a perfect combo with the saltiness of the cashews.
My suggestion to make this a perfect snack? Buy one and let it warm up for a while. I think if you just keep it in the bag for about 30 minutes or so, the caramel would soften up a bit and it would be easier to eat.
Want a bite???
Overall, I’d definitely pick up one of these again. I’m always a sucker for the salty sweet snack combo! I would, however, let it sit a bit to soften up.
