We finally found them!
The DFB team has been on the lookout for the Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bars in our grocery stores at home ever since we found out about them. At last, we found our first box in a Tampa, FL-area Publix!
We were lucky enough to grab the second-to last box of Mickey Ice Cream Bars on the shelf for $7.99. Now the big question, are these as good at home as they are in the park?
After celebrating the fact we finally found these, it was time to open the box and try these out!
These bars are noticeably smaller than the in-park version of the bars — which we were OK with since we are at home…and calories count at home, unlike on a Disney vacation! The in-park bars are 4 oz. each, with the at-home bars being 3 oz. each.
Other than the size difference these bars look and taste the same to us. The chocolate coating is a nice, crunchy milk chocolate. The ice cream is creamy and vanilla-y. Together they make a sweet snack or end to a meal. These will be a really nice at-home indulgence and reminder of our trips to the parks.
The at-home version of the Mickey Ice Cream Bars are made with light ice cream, offering half the fat and third fewer calories than the in-park, full fat Mickey Ice Cream Bars. We didn’t notice a difference in taste between the low fat ice cream in the at-home version versus the all the calories and fat in-park version.
We would really like to see these stick around longer than the “limited time” we’ll have to enjoy these. Guess that means time to clean out the freezer to make room for our stash of Mickey Bars!
