I’m thinking this is anotherfun seasonal flavor. In the past, you could find Pumpkin Spice in the fall and winter months, and Strawberry in the spring and summer. But I’m pleased to share that the Summer flavor is now, apparently, Double Chocolate!

As soon as I saw the menu I knew right away what I was having as a snack that afternoon. (For research purposes, of course.) Besides, I was really intrigued by exactly how they were going to get two kinds of chocolate into my fried dough.

I took it as a good sign when they waved me off to the side and told me that it would be a minute or two as they made my funnel cake.

It emerged from the little serving window, piping hot, and covered with chocolate syrup and powdered sugar. So there was the answer to my question — it was chocolate dough and chocolate sauce. Voila! Double chocolate.

I started to tear it apart by hand, getting a bit sticky in the process, and taking care not to burn my fingers. (I still think this is a good thing when it comes to fried dough.)

Once I had my first taste, I could tell that the dough itself wasn’t overly sweet, but definitely tasted of cocoa powder. This was perfect, as the combo of chocolate sauce and powdered sugar on top was plenty sweet enough. It reminded me of a chocolate-chocolate doughnut.

I thought this was really good! Now that I think about it though, I think it would have been great — bordering on the fantastic — had I ordered it with a slab of ice cream. Throw some strawberry sauce on top and it would have been awesome.

Still, if you like chocolate, I have a feeling you’ll enjoy this one.

Will you be trying the double chocolate funnel cake on your next trip to Epcot? Leave a comment and tell us what you think!

    Sleepy Hollow in the Magic Kingdom have Funnel Cakes. I wonder if they will carry the Double-Cocolate Funnel Cakes?
    Anyone out there tried to check for them at the Sleepy Hollow?

    I agree that ice cream would have really set it apart or…drizzle some peanut butter on top with the chocolate sauce!!!

    I LOVE this blog and this post! I am going to Disney World in October for an entire week and over the past month or so, I have been over this entire blogsite from its first post until now. A little obsessive? Maybe. But I want to thank the creators of this blog for their amazing work and all of the contributors for their delicious, delicious research. Can’t wait to try one of these in the Fall!

    Chocolate isn’t ‘seasonal'; chocolate is a major diet staple and food necessity to ensure life as we know it. Anything chocolate should definitely be all year around IMHO. :) I would absolutely like to try one of these little beauties, as not only do I love chocolate, I think anything made with real baking cocoa is the best yet. Oh, the toppings possibilities, strawberries, whipped cream, ice cream…..Ahhhhh! PS: Jodie, I know what you mean that you love this blog. It’s my daily ray of Disney Sunshine.

    William — We haven’t seen them at Sleepy Hollow yet, but if we do, we’ll be sure to let you know asap!

    Tricia, Wendy, and Jenny — Yes! Yes! and Woohoo!

    Halevy — Ooh, good luck. Often, you start to see pumpkin spice for fall and winter. Fingers crossed for you!

    Leslie — No, they don’t qualify as a snack credit on DDP, unfortunately.

    Angelina — Oooh! Brill!!

    Jodie — I am SO pleased it’s been so helpful to you! Best wishes for a fantastic trip this fall!

    Essie — Haha! Agreed. Who knows, maybe if enough are sold, it will become a regular staple. You never know!

    Marion — That’s awesome! Did he put it on his must have list?

    AJ-we’re FL Passholders, so I have a feeling we’ll be there soon to sample it.

  8. Andrea says

    My daughter ordered one in July and it was her favorite thing she ate all week. I wouldn’t rank it quite as high, but it was pretty tasty.

  9. Erica says

    As soon as I saw the picture, all I could think was how good it would be with some ice cream and strawberries!

  10. Mike Venere says

    Looks great…and WOW with my awesome 10% discount with my Disney card it saves me 80 cents!!!!
    PLease recognize the sarcasm.

    That looks really good! I do wonder why this is one of the few snack locations that continues to not take DDP? But at $8 the chocolate one wouldn’t be a SC anyway. Maybe the one with sugar is not offered as a SC because it’s $6.50 while other locations, that you can get it with as SC, have it for only $5.69? Hmmm…
