You may have seen the signs for Goofy’s Glaciers increasing in locations around Disney World lately!
These frozen drinks are less icee, and more…well…slushie. They remind me of a more structured slush puppie-type treat — more liquidy than icy, and rockin’ on a hot Walt Disney World kinda day.
The epicenter of Goofy’s Glaciers is Goofy’s Candy Company in Downtown Disney. Trust me; you’ll know where to find them once you get there!
Here you’ll find lots of different flavors to quench your thirst. (Be advised, these tend to change, so have a back up plan in case your favorite isn’t available on the day you visit.)
All have (naturally) Goofy names, like Pucker Purple, Goofy’s Glacier Apple, Rootin’ Tootin’ Red, Orange You Happy Orange, and my favorite, Gawrshly Berry Blue. Purists will also be happy to see a Coca-Cola Cooler featured often as well!
But wait! There’s more! You are actually encouraged to combine the flavors to make your own special concoction. (Kamikaze Goofy’s Glaciers!)
Now, when Big Top Treats debuted late last year, I was excited to see a couple of Goofy’s Glaciers flavors under the big tent as well!
The flavors featured at Big Top Treats during my recent visit there were strawberry, blue raspberry, and lemonade. I decided to mix it up a bit, and chose the strawberry and blue raspberry.
These are VERY good. The strawberry won my vote hands down! The flavor instantly reminded me of the red fla-vor-ice freeze pops that we slurped out of their plastic sleeves as kids. You know — the kind that, like, cut up your mouth if you sucked on it really hard. Ow. Anyway, you won’t find the same danger with the Goofy’s Glaciers.
At Big Top, get your Glacier in a cute souvenir cup with ears. Or, save the dough and spend it elsewhere. Only you know how critical those souvenir cups are to your fam.
I’m hoping they introduce more and more flavors here as well! But, in the meantime, I’m happy to quench my thirst — and my need for something cool and sweet — with that yummo strawberry!
Have you sampled Goofy’s Glaciers? What flavor would you choose?
