When I told you about August’s Hot Diggity Dog of the Month at Casey’s Corner in Magic Kingdom I, just like a lot of you, was intrigued. I just had to try this unconventional, cheesy concoction out for you! So at After Hours the other night, I did just that!
This month’s Dog is for all of you fellow cheese lovers out there! The Cheesy Hot Diggity Dog is your choice of a regular or foot-long topped with Cheddar and Queso, and then I’ll say garnished with “Seasoned Cheese Puffs!”
This feature had me at “Cheesy” and pulled me in more with “Cheddar”, and then “Queso”. As if this cheesy goodness wasn’t enough, they guaranteed I’d come visit with the promise of “Cheese Puffs”. Now some people I know told me they couldn’t fathom this. I could fathom it and couldn’t wait.
I ordered the regular size and you can see it certainly is slathered in Queso and Cheddar and has a generous serving of Cheese Puffs. I was ready to dive into this baby.
As you can see my Dog did match the marketing photos put out by Disney, so reality meets expectations as far as looks. So before trying the dog as a whole, I grabbed a puff from the top. I noticed the cheese puffs were stale and off-brand. Now, we are never promised Cheetos, but I was kind of surprised at the sogginess with these.
But charging ahead I took a bite of the whole dog…and I was impressed! I don’t understand it EITHER. Maybe it’s the creamy spiciness of the queso or the combo with the savory hot dog and cheddar; but altogether the dish was more than the sum of its parts and I really did enjoy it.
I asked a manager about the staleness of the cheese puffs and she said they are aware of this issue and they are working on keeping them crisp, but the humidity of the kitchen is really causing a problem. Sounds like this is an issue that was unforeseen in the design of the dish.
Would I recommend this? If you are a cheese fan and want to try something unique (and Instagram-able) dive in. If you are a Cheetos purist you might want to sit this one out.
