DFB Reader Finds
We’re big fans of edible cookie dough – and you can find it at the All Star Sports Resort, and now you can get Edible Cookie Dough Mickeys at AristoCrepes in Disney Springs! DFB reader Austin Does had this to say: “Disney now sells edible cookie dough now at AristoCrepes in Disney Springs and my life has changed forever. Disney Food Blog says another type is sold at All-Star Sports. Sounds like a taste test is in order!” Sounds like a good idea! And Austin, don’t forget to try the maple bacon cookie dough at B.B. Wolf’s, too!
The Baked Macaroni and Cheese with Pulled Pork at Flame Tree Barbecue in Disney’s Animal Kingdom is still on our list of must-have eats at Disney World! And, DFB reader Luke Drase shared this with us: “Big shout-out to Disney Food Blog for all their videos and recommendations. The pulled pork Mac and cheese snack was unbelievably good.”
