Review: Vanilla Ice Cream Brownie Sandwich at Downtown Disney’s Earl of Sandwich

The Earl of Sandwich is still one of the most popular “non-Disney” food destinations in all of Walt Disney World — and now in Disneyland as well.

But you may be surprised to learn that they also have some killer desserts — which take the form of sandwiches, naturally!

A while back I told you about some of them. My first discovery was the Brownie Creme Sandwich. Two of the most amazing brownies ever are stuck together with some rockin’ vanilla frosting. This was Nirvana enough. But then, I tried two more versions of the treat — the Chocolate Creme Brownie Sandwich and the Peanut Butter Creme Brownie Sandwich. Even. Better.

And when I heard about the EoS ice cream sandwich…it was time to return… .

Ode to Disney Dessert Sandwiches

You know we like to follow the Disney food trends here on Disney Food Blog, and one that we’re noticing more and more are the “dessert sandwiches” that keep popping up.

Of course, Disney has seemingly always offered the beloved Carrot Cake Cookie and Mickey Ice Cream Sandwich, and now there are a few more options. Let’s take a look at some old and new favorites!

Whoopie pies

Whoopie pies (cake-like cookie sandwiches with frosting or whipped cream in the middle — borne out of the Northeastern United States) are a huge trend nationwide; and over at Sunshine Seasons in The Land, they’ve introduced a red velvet whoopie pie with your favorite mouse right on top!

The frosting inside is buttercream, not cream cheese, but we’re pretty happy with it either way!

Decked out in chocolate chips, this is a great one to try while you’re waiting for your Soarin’ fastpass to open up!

And at the Boardwalk Resort, Flying Fish Cafe offers a Trio of Concessions Sweets aptly named “Out on the Boardwalk”. A highlight of this dish is the Peanut Butter-Chocolate-Marshmallow “Moon Pie”.

The pound cake “fries” have strawberry “ketchup” to add to the look-alike whoopie pie “burger”. It’s an innovative boardwalk dessert…and delicious!

Carrot Cake Cookie

Writer’s Stop in Disney’s Hollywood Studios is home to the Carrot Cake Cookie, another whoopie-pie like menu item featuring two soft, cake-like cookies with delectable cream cheese frosting sandwiched in between. These days, you can also find these goodies at [Read more…]
