Disneylanders, take note… The Disneyland Resort may be getting its very own Sprinkles!
It’s been a while since we’ve visited one of my favorite nosh spots: Earl of Sandwich in Downtown Disney. That’s right… it’s Earl’s, Disneyland-style!
We’re back for a quick visit because I couldn’t wait to dig into the Pepperoni Pizza Bread (and I maaaay have grabbed a few other items, too). The ingredients are exactly what you’d figure: sauce, cheese, and pepperoni on bread. [Read more…]
There has been a LOT of hype over the latest specialty beverages to arrive to Starbucks.
And while these new sips are being served at Starbucks locations all over Disney property in spots like Epcot’s Fountain View, Magic Kingdom’s Main Street Bakery, Trolley Car Cafe at Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom’s Creature Comforts, they’re likely gracing the menu at your local Starbucks, too (making this a two-fer review for you!).
We’re talking about the Smoked Butterscotch Latte and Smoked Butterscotch Frappuccino! And though they’re available nationwide, many folks are making the comparison to a specific specialty drink at a certain theme park also located in Central Florida: BUTTERBEER™.
Described as “creamy-sweet with kettle cooked butterscotch,” it sure sounds enticing enough.
So I grabbed both the hot latte and the frappuccino versions so I could decide for myself how they really compare to a glass of Butterbeer™. If you’ve never had one, Butterbeer comes in a few different versions like cold or frozen, and has a very sweet and distinct butterscotch flavor throughout its cream soda base. The whole thing is topped off with foam.
Many guests visiting the Disney Springs Marketplace in Disney World or Downtown Disney in Disneyland often end up at Earl of Sandwich for a quick bite.
Earl of Sandwich
Thanks to reasonable prices, tasty food, and a fairly large variety of options, it’s a popular spot on both coasts. It’s typically fairly easy for just about everyone in a group to find something they’d enjoy from the menu of sandwiches, salads, and soups.
Though it may be hard to stray from favorites like the Holiday Sandwich, guests may be interested to learn that those options have expanded even further with some selections on Earl’s new Low-Cal Menu, also dubbed the “Skinny Earl” menu, featuring dishes that are under 400 calories.
Choices include the BBQ Chicken Flatbread featuring grilled chicken, bacon, cheddar, red onions and BBQ sauce on a lavash flatbread (360 calories), and the Quinoa Chicken Salad which serves up field greens and arugula topped with grilled chicken, feta, quinoa, red onions, fresh strawberries, Mandarin oranges, olive oil and Balsamic vinaigrette (290 Calories). Finally, the Turkey Wrap includes turkey, cheddar, romaine, Roma tomato, and light mayo in a whole wheat wrap (370 Calories).
Great news for folks looking to lighten things up a bit while still enjoying all the flavors at Earl’s! [Read more…]
Halloween time is HERE! Themed treats and merchandise have already started to appear at the Disneyland Resort. On a recent visit I spotted these perfectly packaged Seasonal Candy Bags at Disney California Adventure.
The artwork & packaging on these really caught my eye! There are four different bag designs, each one containing a different type of candy. The candies themselves are not new, but the packaging “make over” from previous years is going to have them flying off the shelves. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I think I like Donald’s “Terror in Tomorrowland” artwork best. [Read more…]
Attention pumpkin fans!!! I’ve got something you might want to see… I give you Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Covered Pretzels!
This is the first time that I’ve seen these during Halloween Time, but I usually don’t pay too much attention to the prepackaged treats. I’m more of a grab something from the bakery case kinda gal!
New to the Disneyland Resort this season are an adorably festive line of Dia de los Muertos Treats.
For the past few years, Zocalo Park in Frontierland has had a gorgeous display where you can participate in some fun activities and learn about the traditions of Dia de los Muertos.
In the midst of the big Disneyland 60th Celebration, we keep getting surprised with so many fun treats! On July 1st, the Disneyland Resort introduced a line of S’mores treats that are not to be missed. There are 4 fantastic new items that include a S’mores Marshmallow Wand, a S’mores Gourmet Caramel Apple, S’mores Bark, & a S’mores Rice Krispy Treat.
On a recent trip to Downtown Disney, I visited Marceline’s and [Read more…]
