Disneyland Snack Series: Chocolate Peanut Butter Whoopie Pie at Jolly Holiday Bakery in Disneyland Park

We are stopping into Disneyland’s Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe to check out a new sweet treat that recently debuted!

Although Jolly Holiday is a fairly new addition to Main Street USA, the atmosphere of this spot is so perfectly excecuted that you’d swear it’s been there since Walt Disney walked these streets! Whenever I’m in Disneyland, even if it’s only for a short trip — and on this trip I was there for about 36 hours — I have to make time for this place.

The counter service spot celebrates all things Mary Poppins. Seating is outdoors here, but that’s perfectly fine with me — look how cheerful the patio setting is! (Seriously, is the weather EVER bad here?)

Inside, you’ll find touches everywhere that remind you of the film. Porcelain figurines bring a couple of the best movie scenes to life. I love this one of Mary on her carousel horse!

Mary Poppins!

After a look around at all the wonderful touches, I wanted to see just what was new in the bakery cases! The lunch menu gives you an idea of the general offerings at Jolly Holiday. But the bakery has also become a landing spot for new and seasonal treats. Heather shared a few of them with you not too long ago!

This time out, I saw a bunch of new things. But one treat in particular called my name, and I know it’ll call yours, too!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Whoopie Pie

Since it opened in a couple of years ago, Jolly Holiday has been a popular spot. But lately, they’ve really stepped up their game by offering some fantastic seasonal and limited-time options.

When I heard that they had debuted a Chocolate Peanut Butter Whoopie Pie? Wild horses and all that.

You know I am all about the Peanut Butter. And Disneyland has some of my favorite PB treats, like the Peanut Butter Sandwich and Peanut Butter Heaven (which is the most perfect sweet treat name ever). Would this one measure up? Let’s see.

Two soft, moist, Chocolate Cake Cookies come together with a more than adequate scoop of rich Peanut Butter Filling. A drizzle of Chocolate on top makes it the slightest bit fancy.

Inside, you can see just how thick and rich this is. And I’m not just talking about the filling! Sometimes in whoopie pies, the cookie part is kind of an afterthought. But here it’s definitely part of the story.

And the peanut butter filling is so dense and full of flavor. I hate wimpy peanut butter. This is not wimpy peanut butter.

It’s no secret that I go for any treat that involves peanut butter, so this was kind of a no-brainer. And it was definitely worth using one of my 36 hours in Disneyland to seek it out.

    I’d love to ‘stop by and try it’, but I live on the East Coast. I’d love to get to the DLR someday and Jolly Holiday would def. be on my Must Do list.

    I’m sorry AJ, I meant to tell you about this one in an email. I know you love Peanut Butter. I tried it 2 weeks ago and I hope they make it a regular. My sister loves this one too. It was perfect in every way.
