OK, you guys. Frozen. Cheesecake.
We first told you about this fantastic little Gelato Bars kiosk in Disneyland’s Downtown Disney last year. And, well…you know I can’t resist some good gelato! So I couldn’t wait to hit it up on my recent trip to Disneyland.
When it first appeared, there was a pretty extensive menu of Gelato Bars, consisting of fabulous flavors and garnishes. These days, the gelato bar selection has been pared down to five varieties.
But before you become too sad about that — look at what they’ve added: Frozen Cheesecake! On. A. Stick.
There’s also a selection of Hot Chocolates (complete with hot chocolate on a stick) as well as a Gelato Cookie Sandwich (!) and a Frozen Banana dipped in Ghirardelli Chocolate. A selection of bottled beverages rounds out the menu.
But that’s not all there is to tell you about this spot. As seems to be the standard in Disneyland, there are little “models” of the food selections! I think the “bedazzled” Birthday Cake one is my favorite.
Here are the examples of the cheesecake bars, which are available plain or with a strawberry garnish. The hot chocolate on a stick is represented, too.
Visual aids are also there for the chocolate-covered banana and gelato sandwich.
But my mind was already made up, and I went for one cheesecake bar. Strawberry, please.
And I know what you’re thinking: “AJ, that’s as hard as a rock and you’re gonna break your teeth.”
I thought so, too; and I was worried. But that wasn’t the case! I was shocked to realize that it wasn’t frozen solid (maybe that has something to do with all of the fat in that cheesecake! ;-D), and it was surprisingly easy to bite into the creamy cheesecake.
The slice was a huge portion, and I was very happy that they hadn’t skipped a thick graham cracker crust.
My take? This was absolutely delicious. One of those things that I don’t truly enjoy enough while I’ve got it, so I have to sit here and crave another one on my next trip to Disneyland!
As for the gelato bars, they will have to wait for another day, but I love this as an option! It’s just different enough to catch my interest. And in a surprising move, the price has actually decreased since the time the cart debuted. No telling if this is a seasonal change, or if it will stay that way. But for now, it’s a pretty cool trend to note!
