Oh my gosh, I LOVE this news!!!! Epcot has introduced yet another new funnel cake!!!
And it’s CHOCOLATE!!!
Yup — the Funnel Cake Stand in Epcot’s America Pavilion is wowing us yet again with another new flavor for our favorite “elephant ear” treat in the Showcase… .
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!
Double Chocolate Funnel Cake
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.
