They’re baaaaaack! And they’re even better!
We first told you about the clever candy boxes a while back, but on a recent trip to Walt Disney World, I came across some new additions to the collection. This time they’re ALL CHOCOLATE. No gummies or lemon drops to be found.
I mean, I love Coconut Patties and Chocolate Covered Pretzels as much as the next girl, but these are some truly fun souvenirs.
Fun NEW Disney Chocolate!
Get ready for the clever-ness…
The Disney Parks “Authentic, Original” logo on the boxes means you should find them at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland.
Nutritional information is located on each box. You know. Just in case you need to know this.
And the numbers do vary a bit, since each of the boxes have a different candy inside.
Ingredients are listed for your consideration as well.
So let’s dive in and see what these little treasures have to offer!
This one’s been around for a while, but I love it! Chocolate will turn any Grumpy into a Happy! (I had to. Come on.)
These Milk Chocolate Caramels pay homage to at least four of the Seven Dwarfs. And I’m pretty sure you could work the rest of them in if you really tried.
Cheshire Cat Chocolate Mint
I totally know how this guy feels. I’m just mad about chocolate, too! And if you love the rich-cool combo of Milk Chocolate and Mint, then you’ll love these Alice in Wonderland-inspired candies!
Hot Fudge Truffle Chocolates
Whether you’re looking to conjure some chocolate or make it disappear, there’s a box of chocolates for you.
If you prefer dark chocolate, you may want to try these Haunted Mansion bonbons — Dark Chocolate Hot Fudge Truffle. Yessss. (Note: the Hot Fudge isn’t really hot inside the box. That would be weird. Though a chili-type heat would be fun… .)
If Milk Chocolate is your preference, these Sorcerer Mickey truffles are perfect for you.
Monsters, Inc. Milk Chocolate and Peanut Butter
Don’t you just love Mike Wazowski? Such a ladies man.
And if I didn’t love him before I sure do now. I mean, clearly he has my number, when he’s offering Milk Chocolate and — yep! — Peanut Butter!!
Yeah. We’re gonna have to camp out here for just a minute. (And don’t be put off by the fact that Mickey is on the actual chocolate. He does own the company, after all.)
This is milk chocolate. Peanut butter. Done. Nice and simple. And just the way I like it!
I used to love getting chocolate peanut butter candy bars from a company called Betty Dixon when I was a kid, and this is the same type of peanut butter filling — VERY creamy!
Beauty and the Beast Raspberry Chocolates
But I had no sooner finished sampling the chocolate peanut butter combo when I heard another candy calling my name — Chocolate and Raspberry.
“Chocolate Tames the Beast.” Bahahaha! But judging from their expressions in the photo — who is acting more beastly in this scenario?
But these are really fun. Look! Little roses. So sweet.
There are eight pieces to a box. So you could share. Theoretically, anyway. And I have no idea why I flipped one of them upside down. Maybe to show you the other side? Really…no idea.
The filling is a Ganache flavored with Raspberry, rather than a straight fruit filling.
I know that many of you love to take a little something home with you — for souvenirs, or simply to keep the magic going just a little beyond your departure date. Well, I think these are serious contenders for your souvenir dollars. The boxes are miniature works of pop art, and the chocolates are delicious. It’s definitely a win-win.
Have you tried any of the new candies that have popped up at the parks? Let us know which is your favorite, or which one you can’t wait to try!
