So, we’ve all seen (and probably eaten) those frozen chocolate-covered nanners that you can get at the Disney ice cream carts, right? But have you ever seen an unfrozen version? I hadn’t! Until I scoped out the snack cases at Big Top Treats in the Magic Kingdom last week!
Here I found a new-to-me treat — a regular old unfrozen banana covered in chocolate and peanuts! Rock on! Of course, they have a version that skips the peanuts as well if you’re just a straight banana-and-chocolate kind of person.
The no-nuts version is $3.79 and the peanuts version is $4.29. Both are available for a Disney Dining Plan snack credit.
I chose the version with peanuts (extra protein, you know!) and couldn’t wait to try it.
The frozen bananas are so hard to break into, but with this you get all of the great flavors without cracking your teeth! (Plus, it takes forever to eat those frozen bananas…the unfrozen ones mean instant gratification for us Disney snack fiends.)
The chocolate was fresh and had great flavor — it didn’t taste or feel plastic-y or artificial at all. And the banana was ripe and sweet, so no worries about starchy, “green” fruit here. In fact, I was worried that the softness of the banana might make it fall right off the stick; so if you buy this for your kiddo, it might make sense to break it into pieces. It will come in a bag, so you can just carry the bag around and nosh on chunks of banana all day.
I liked the added texture and flavor of the peanuts, but I might go for a plain chocolate one next time. I think I’d enjoy the simpler snack (and less to get stuck in your teeth).
Now, I looked all over the parks for other locations to find this, but I couldn’t find it anywhere. Perhaps it’s a new “trial” treat that will be making its way to other candy counters over the upcoming weeks, or maybe it’s an exclusive at Big Top Treats.
Either way, it’s worth a try if you have a banana-and-chocolate lover in your group who’d rather not wait for the “thaw.”
