Pecan Maple Bark makes its appearance at the unassuming, rustic little popcorn wagon in Canada as part of the international snack options featured during Holidays Around the World, Epcot’s celebration of holiday traditions around the globe.

When you think about holiday candy bark, I’ll bet you think the same thing I do: some combo of crushed candied peppermint and white chocolate layered over dark. Sure, you’ll find fun variations on this festive treat now and again, and whaddya know… Pecan Maple Bark is one of ‘em ;) .

But here’s what makes it stand out from the rest: naturally, there’s chocolate involved — sprinkled with plenty of toasted pecan along with some sea salt for good measure. But it’s all coating a layer of crunchy, buttery toffee, further flavored with maple in honor of our Canadian friends.

You get a pretty decent-sized bag, to boot. Perfect for sharing… or carrying around to munch on throughout the day while enjoying the extra special sights and sounds that make up the Holidays Around the World experience at Epcot.

    We tried this a few weeks ago, and it WAS tasty, but they have apparently changed the portion sizes dramatically. For a pretty high price, we only got 3 pieces, which seems to be about 1/4 of what you had in your bag last year. :(

  2. Aloha says

    Lisa, that happened to me too! The portion size was shockingly small, I almost cancelled my order once they handed me my bag. I should have.

  3. Michele says

    We had the same experience as Lisa C., a very small portion for $8.50. In addition, there is absolutely no maple in this product. I am a maple fanatic and noticed there was no maple flavor. After checking the ingredients listed on the package I discovered it was because there is no maple in it. Very disappointing!

    The Maple Bark is simply mediocre toffee at best.
    Something must have changed in both the recipe and quality this year, and will not waste money on them again.
    My husband bought some due to the recommendation on the blog as a gift. We got two pieces that were not even 2×2″ which is surprising for $8.50. Pure maple syrup isn’t cheap, so the hope of something really good overrode the startling cost. Dark chocolate, few pecan pieces and a softer toffee with little flavor.
    There was ZERO maple flavor in this product.
    Save your money, this was a true disappointment and a terrible waste of money

    Lisa C., Aloha, Michele, and DB — We’ve always really liked this one. I guess we’ll have to make it at home with this handy recipe if we want to recapture the version we’ve enjoyed. :-)
