Many of you know that I’m not a big fan of the foam-on-food trend.
What’s the foam-on-food trend you ask? The foam-on-food trend is one of the molecular gastronomy fads sweeping the nation (well, it’s been sweeping the nation for a couple of years and has now made it to Disney World), and this one means that every food and its brother seems to have a “foam” on top these days.
Some foams are bubbly and soapy looking like the one pictured below (the name of this restaurant will be reserved to protect the innocent, because it’s a very good restaurant that I like a lot and I’m hoping they’ll stop doing the foam thing soon). And while you’re used to foam on your coffee and cappuccino, you’re not necessarily used to it on your steak…
Other foams look like colored shaving cream like this. To me, these are less offensive than the soapy looking foams, but still… I’m not a fan:
But I was surprised to see that while I’d seen foams pop up on signature dining (e.g. ‘spensive!) menus for a while, I hadn’t seen them added to counter service menus until Sunshine Tree Terrace re-opened recently!
Do you see that? All Natural Lemonade topped with Wild Berry Foam! What in the world?!
So I made a special trip to the Magic Kingdom to snag this drink. I went at night, so the pics aren’t the best. As a result, I’m giving you two to choose from. Just look at the one you prefer and ignore the other one.
As it turned out, the All Natural Lemonade was very good…and very sour (yay!). And the Wild Berry Foam didn’t make that sucker any sweeter! Nope; the foam itself was pretty sour as well. So the drink was sour-on-sour — kind of like your kids’ new favorite candy these days.
Personally, I loved it! While the taste was overwhelming, I liked the different flavors of the berry and the lemon, and since I was using a straw, I didn’t really have to feel the foaminess.
So, while I’m not generally a foam fan when it comes to food, I’m giving a free pass to this drink! Loved it!
Have you tired the foam-on-food trend OR this awesome lemonade drink? Let us know what you think on both or either!
