Pixar Fest at Disneyland Resort has quickly earned a reputation for being a hub of creative churros — we’re talking Cocoa Churros and so many more. But these portable, cinnamon-sugar sticks of fried dough deliciousness aren’t the only classic Disneyland snack to get the Pixar treatment!
We’ve already given you a heads up about Jessie’s Berry Jubilee Funnel Cake, and today we’re giving you a peek at another funnel cake with a Toy Story spin — and this one’s a tongue-twister. It’s the Lots-O-Straw-Bear-Y Funnel Cake — and it’s as vibrant as it’s kooky name!
This fruity funnel cake starts with the classic fried dough squiggles you know and love from quick service spot Hungry Bear in Disneyland’s Frontierland. But then things get a bear-y wild: Strawberries in syrup, thick syrupy Cherries, Strawberry Butter, Streusel, and a Spiced Syrup Drizzle. If this sounds like a lot of sweetness for you, that’s because it is!
The dark cherries pull you in, and they provide a little tartness to counteract all that sweet.
There are loads of strawberries on there, too. Plus, you know, strawberry butter! What?! It’s awesome! And it compliments the streusel topping, too, which we always think benefits from a good amount of butter.
Overall, the flavors work well, with the sweetness balanced out a bit by the tart cherries and the slightly salty butter. And we kind of appreciate that it’s being billed on signage as the Strawberry Funnel Cake because Lots-O-Straw-Bear-Y Funnel Cake is a mouthful!
Ooh — and while you’re at Hungry Bear, don’t forget to check out their Featured Cold Brew Coffee!
We grabbed one on this visit, and it was fabulous: creamy, sweet, and rich. (It didn’t mind sharing the pic with the funnel cake. What a wonderful coffee.)
