Merry Christmas Everyone!!! I hope you’re having a fantastic day!
There are some fun holiday options available at this stop just outside of World Showcase, including Seasonal Beer, special Hot Chocolate, and even Frozen Yogurt dressed up for the festivities. But we are, of course, here for the Waffle! Let’s take a look.
Savory Turkey Waffle at Promenade Refreshments
Last year, Promenade Refreshments featured two different holiday waffles — a Stuffing Waffle with Turkey, Cranberries, and Gravy, provided savory flavors. A Sweet Potato Waffle with all of the ingredients of the popular holiday casserole served as a dessert option. This year, they (sadly) decided to simplify and offer only one waffle, but with elements of both. (Don’t worry. They left out the marshmallows.)
Why do we say sadly? Well, because we really liked both of the holiday waffle entries last year.
And this year’s is a decidedly different animal, with both good and not-our-favorite components. The 2014 version features a Sweet Potato Waffle with Turkey, Green Bean Casserole, and Crispy Fried Onions.
So — Sweet Potato Waffle: Really Awesome. Turkey — Awesome. Green Bean Casserole — Ummmm?
I can think of many, many ways Disney could have gone with this. The Cranberry Relish on last year’s waffle was brilliant. And there’s always Stuffing (!!!!) or even Mashed Potatoes and Gravy.
So who invited Green Beans to the party? I know, I know. They’re often on the holiday table in casserole form. But they just don’t make sense to me in a waffle format.
All I could think of when I looked at this was the Willy Wonka Violet Beauregard “Thanksgiving Dinner Gum” — sans blueberry pie.
And…there are just SO MANY BEANS here! It’s hard to get past them…literally and figuratively.
Still, I’ll reiterate, the Waffle and Turkey were fantastic. I’ll just know to ask for my green beans on the side if this one shows up on menus again next year.
