We’re talkin’ WAFFLES, y’all.
And if we’re talkin’ waffles, more often than not we’re also talkin’ about Sleepy Hollow Refreshments.
You see, long before Chicken and Waffles starting popping up pretty much everywhere in Disney World from Backlot Express to the Fantasy Fare Food Truck (even the Polynesian’s Captain Cook’s had an unexpected take on them for a time), Sleepy Hollow understood the Power of the Waffle. While specific waffle items have come and gone from the menu, this location is currently home to its original Big Three: the Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich, a Breakfast Waffle (currently served with egg and cheese), and the Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich with Chocolate-Hazlenut Spread… which we all simply refer to as the “Nutella Waffle Sandwich. Oh, yeah, and it’s got Fruit, too.”
Or maybe that’s just me?
Anyway, we’re revisiting the Nutella Waffle Sandwich today because… well, frankly because I wanted one on my last trip! And I thought I’d share it again today with you. After all, even though the Nutella Waffle never left the Sleepy Hollow menu, that doesn’t mean things here can’t change (Case in Point: the return of the Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich after it was taken off the menu for a while — though good news: the price on the item has actually gone down, making it a better value). Anyway, I placed my order…
… and there you have it, it’s as glorious as ever. Just like always, the base is a big ol’ crunchy, golden Belgian Waffle, fresh from the iron. Then, it’s slathered in gobs of chocolate-hazelnut Nutella spread which becomes slightly melty.
Not gonna lie: I asked for extra spread, and you should, too. Because although a little Nutella is good, a lot of Nutella is better.
The fruit has stayed standard over the years, and even though I kid about the necessity of fruit, it’s actually pretty great here. Lots of fresh strawberries, blueberries, and sliced banana make this too big to really eat like a sandwich, despite the waffle’s official name.
So be sure to grab a knife and fork — and maybe even an extra plate — so you can deconstruct this glorious beast and take it slice by slice (or share with a pal!). In slices like this, it’s like a Nutella Waffle Pizza!
Whatever YOU want to call it, just get it! Because the Nutella-Waffle-and-hey-there’s-fruit-but-it’s-too-big-to-be-a-sandwich-maybe-it’s-more-like-a-pizza is just as great as it’s always been!
And since Sleepy Hollow now has Hand-Dipped Corn Dogs a la Disneyland, you’ve got more than one reason to make a stop — or two! — during your visit to the Magic Kingdom!
