Looking for some fun holiday treats? Look no further, Big Thunder Ranch is currently hosting the Jingle Jangle Jamboree; a one stop shop for fun games, cookie decorating, special snacks & SANTA!
The menu here is simple, Hot Dogs, Corn on the Cob, “Candy Cane” Cotton Candy, Apple Burritos, Cookie Decorating Kits and various beverages.
Our visit included the “Candy Cane” Cotton Candy & some Cookie Decorating. Let me break the sad news to you first. The cotton candy here DOES NOT taste like candy canes, it’s just “candy cane striped.” Even the cast member that I bought it from thought that it was peppermint flavored, but alas, that is a rumor. It’s still pretty though!
It’s dark and light pink swirled and still
tastes delicious, but oh how I wish it was actually Candy Cane flavored…
The cotton candy was a bit of a let down, but I highly recommend the Cookie Decorating Kit. It’s generously sized, and for $6, it’s a fun activity with no line to wait in.
Another perk? The first lady of Christmas is actually on hand to supervise!
The Cookie Decorating Kit comes with your choice of a Mickey Snowman or Mickey Gingerbread Man shaped sugar cookie. It has 3 cups of frosting in red, green & white; mini M&M’s; red sugar; and nonpareils sprinkles in red, green & white.
All packed up neatly in a box with a stick for spreading, the kit is a fun way to spend some time enjoying the Jingle Jangle Jamboree.
There are plenty of decorating tables and the box can be opened to make a perfect little work space. Here’s my friend Bella showing us how it’s done!
After all that hard work, the masterpiece is ready and it’s time for at tasty treat!
I think Bella did a great job, how about you?
If you prefer to have a little meal before decorating a cookie, you can grab a Hot Dog & some Chips.
Or if you feel like you need something a little more on the healthy side, order yourself an ear of Corn on the Cob!
I however, prefer the delicious Fried Apple Burrito that has been invited back after debuting at Halloween time.
The Jingle Jangle Jamboree is open daily, 9:30am to 6:00pm through January 6th, 2014. In addition to the food offerings, there are special character appearances (including Santa!), free carnival type games, free crafts, and Billy Hill and the Holiday Hillbillies perform throughout the day.
Also, a little secret: If you hit the Jingle Jangle Jamboree early in the day, it’s very light on crowds. I’ve seen Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Goofy & the Country Bears roaming around with zero lines at all.
ANNNND they won’t be out of Apple Burritos just yet! So, what are you waiting for? Head on over! Mickey’s there all dressed up in his holiday best waiting for you!!!
Have you been to the Jingle Jangle Jamboree this holiday season? Did you try any of the food offerings, or did you go for the company?
