Review: Chocolate-Covered Mickey Mouse Brownie at Port Orleans Resort, French Quarter

Welcome back — yes, ALREADY! — to Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory!

Yes, I know… we were JUST at this Counter Service spot in Port Orleans French Quarter to check out some of their New Orleans-inspired eats for lunch (and, of course, some Beignets; ‘cuz you GOTTA if you’re at Port Orleans).

So, why are we back so soon? Well, because even though the Beignets remain the signature snack around here, I couldn’t help checking out the other goods in the ol’ bakery case. You know, the basics like cupcakes (the icing is purple, green, and gold for Mardi Gras here, you know), cookies, Krispy Treats, cakes, and the like.

But I also spotted a newer snack that stood out among the others…

Why? Well, because 1) It was a brownie, and 2) It was shaped like Mickey Mouse!

And you know how we love our food with ears around here (Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bars, Mickey Pretzels, Mickey Waffles, and Mickey Caramel Apples, to name a few), so this was a must-grab.

Now, I was told that sometimes these new brownies are prepared with various candy toppings like peanut butter chips or M&Ms, but it was just the basics on my visit.

Which ended up being perfectly fine by me, because THIS one is enrobed in a super rich, fudgy chocolate.

Underneath the coating (you can see how thick the layer is a little better in the picture below), the dense brownie itself had more fudge-like bits baked throughout.

And for the $3.49 price tag, it even seemed larger than the typical brownie portion.

For right now, we have only spotted these at Sassagoula Floatworks, but we’ll keep an eye out to see if they appear at other locations. But for any chocolate lovers visiting the Port, the Mickey Brownie definitely offers a great excuse to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the French Quarter as well as a delicious snack!

    It looks so fudgy and rich. I’d love to try one, but I’d either have to share it or make it several servings!

    That looks really yummy ~ and I’m not normally a brownie person, but that fudge, Wow!
    I wanted to also thank you for these wonderful blog posts. We were at WDW this past December and I really can appreciate how much time it takes to go to the various locations, wait in the lengthy queues, find tables amidst the throngs of guests, and take great photos and then write fabulous commentary to boot. So, thank you very much!
    I have been curious, and I don’t remember ever having seen it addressed before, do you use any sort of discount ~ AP, Tables in Wonderland, Dining Plan, etc. when you are buying your meals and snacks for review? It just seems like it could get rather expensive as you usually buy several different options as well as delicious drinks.
    (If this is too personal a question I understand, and I still look forward to reading the next blog post!)

    Amy — We’re happy to address your question! We use Tables in Wonderland. However, it does get expensive since we pay for all travel, hotel, and food costs ourselves in order to stay unbiased in our reviews. (We note whenever this isn’t the case. You can see more here in our disclosure policy.) We offset the costs by creating and selling our extensive collection of e-Books at DFBStore.com, which include lots of extra tips and color photos documenting all that we do. Thanks so much for reading — we super appreciate it!

    Thanks so much for your comment Brooke ~ I had wondered for so long, and now I know. I really appreciate the sacrifices, if you can call them that ;) , you all make on the behalf of your readers!

    We just returned home from the French Quarter and my 7 yr old LOVED the Mickey brownie! On our last morning there (5/2/17) the staff made her one fresh to take on the plane home (it was 7am so they didn’t have them ready for sale yet). It made about 30 minutes into the flight before she ate it all.
