Peppermint fans — go straight to California Adventure’s Schmoozies for two peppermint-y Christmas-y delights! As we continued on our Food Tour of Disneyland eating and drinking as many Christmas specialty items as we could, we headed right to Schmoozies and are glad we did!
We’ll just say it again — peppermint! What a sweet, cool stop!
Take a look at this Peppermint Affogato. For those who aren’t sure, an affogato is espresso poured over ice cream. In this case — peppermint ice cream.
This is a generous serving of both espresso and ice cream. If you’re a little tired after your food crawl, this will give you the energy (caffeine) you need to get around the park!
If you’re a fan of peppermint mochas you’ll love this — its a cool version of that drink, minus the chocolate of course.
But OMG! Look at this peppermint wonder, the Peppermint Crunch Shake! This looks like something out of the new Grinch movie.
You’ve got a peppermint ice cream shake topped with chocolate cookie crumbles, crushed peppermint, and that crazy green peppermint whipped cream! And, it’s in a cup garnished with chocolate and crushed peppermint.
This is another home run for peppermint fans. Cool, refreshing, Christmas-y, colorful…just Christmas in a cup! The peppermint whipped cream — though super strange to look at — was actually my favorite part. Just a touch of peppermint flavor and a lot of vanilla-y rich cream flavor made this one not too overwhelming.
