One of my favorite activities in Walt Disney World is to wander around the World Showcase and check out what’s new.
While I always love old favorites, like Pocky and my beloved Fruit Gums, it’s definitely fun to stumble across a brand new display and get all excited about what I find. New or new-to-me — it’s all good!
On a recent trip that just happened to coincide with the holidays, I found several fun new snack items that I wanted to show you. I’m thinking Picnic Around the World! Who’s with me?
O, Canada! You can always surprise me.
We will keep dreaming of the day that you come into your own, but in the meantime, I’m going to grab some Covered Bridge Potato Chips and snack away. I’ll have one Ketchup-Flavored and one Sweet Potato, please! Oh, and a Montreal Steak Seasoning, too! (Ok. I’ll share a few.)
These are definitely going on our World Showcase picnic!
It is interesting to note that all of the snacks I found in the Canada Pavilion shops, such as chips and maple sugar candies, are pretty pricey. They’re especially expensive compared to the treats in other lands. Hmmm…
Being an obsessive tea drinker, I’m all about The Tea Caddy in the UK Pavilion. But another great thing about this shop: you can find lots of different candies and snacks here as well.
On the wall across from the register, we found another entry into the potato chip category: Yorkshire Crisps. These would def satisfy my crunchy-salty craving right now.
And just in case you’re caught in the middle of Epcot at tea time, you can pick up an assortment of Sweet Pies to go with your cuppa. Bramley Apple for me, pleeeez.
Most interesting to me was the assortment of savory items. Perfect for the British (or Anglophile) visitor who’s looking for a taste of home while away from home.
These would also make a swell souvenir if you’re bringing gifts back that capture the international spirit of Epcot.
See? That’s what I love about this place. Kipper fillets. Who expected to find kipper fillets on their visit to Disney World? Not me. But there they are.
If you’re staying at a DVC villa or a spot that has a kitchen, you can stock up on some serious groceries at the UK pavilion these days!
Anyway, just wanted to share. I’ve got a couple of new items from France coming your way soon, too! Stay tuned…
