Disney Food Post Round-Up: April 28, 2013

Another awesome trip to Disney World this week!

Mike and Sully on Spaceship Earth!

The highlights included getting to see Mike Wozowski and Sully announce the upcoming 24-hour Disney Day on May 24th…from Spaceship Earth! You can check out my video of the whole #Disney24 Monsters University 24-hour day announcement here!

But we’ve got LOTS more news where that came from. Like new goodies at the Boardwalk Bakery and in Disneyland, wine dinners, and more.

Michelle B. shared her first visit to Club 33 in Disneyland — “We had such an amazing time!! The dessert buffet (and all the other food) was fantastic! The s’mores dessert and Mickey macaroons were my favorite!”

Happy Anniversary, Michelle!

Katie S. sent in this gem from Joy of Tea. “It is a mango green tea slush from the Joy of Tea booth in the China pavilion at Epcot. It has a tangy sweet flavor but it is not very overpowering. It is super refreshing and perfect for hot Florida days. It is a must get every time I set foot in Epcot!”

Disney Snack Series: Chocolate-Covered Banana!

So, we’ve all seen (and probably eaten) those frozen chocolate-covered nanners that you can get at the Disney ice cream carts, right? But have you ever seen an unfrozen version? I hadn’t! Until I scoped out the snack cases at Big Top Treats in the Magic Kingdom last week!

Chocolate and Peanut Covered Unfrozen Banana at Big Top Treats in Magic Kingdom

Two versions of the unfrozen banana available at Big Top Treats

I chose the version with peanuts (extra protein, you know!) and couldn’t wait to try it.

The frozen bananas are so hard to break into, but with this you get all of the great flavors without cracking your teeth! (Plus, it takes forever to eat those frozen bananas…the unfrozen ones mean instant gratification for us Disney snack fiends.)

Chocolate and Peanut Covered Banana

The chocolate was fresh and had great flavor — it didn’t taste or feel plastic-y or artificial at all. And the banana was ripe and sweet, so no worries about starchy, “green” fruit here.
