Disney Food Pics of the Week: Soft Serve Treats!

Summer’s coming! And we know that you’ll be looking to stay cool at Disney. And I can’t think of a much better way than by enjoying some terrific soft serve treats!

And when it comes to soft serve at Disney, you certainly have options! From Dole Whip to Root Beer Floats made with the creamy stuff, there’s no end to the variety you’ll find.

So we weren’t too surprised when we checked out pics that our members have posted on Disney Food Blog Photo Extravaganza, our Flickr group. We came away with all sorts of soft serve inspiration!

If you haven’t had a chance to check it out, head over there! But before you do, let’s take a look at some of the goodies we found while we were surfin’.

What makes a Soft Serve Ice Cream Cone even more delish? How about enjoying it with an awesome background, like Paradise Pier! I can almost feel that beautiful California sunshine coming through the pic, can’t you??

Pineapple Soft Serve at Epcot Flower and Garden Festival

We love that Pineapple Soft Serve has become a mainstay at the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival. We expect to see the popular treat back again at the 2015 Epcot Food and Wine Festival as well!

This great pic features treats from Pineapple Promenade at this year’s Flower and Garden Festival. It really captures the contrast between the soft serve and the Sammy’s Beach Bar Red Head Macadamia Nut Flavored Rum!

Two NEW Ice Cream Bars in Disney World!

So, get this! There are two new additions to the ice cream novelty lineup in Disney World!

Either one or both of these can be found in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Magic Kingdom, and Epcot. So far, I haven’t seen them at Animal Kingdom…but I’ll keep looking!

Disney World Frozen Treats

You never know when the chilly treats of the World will change up on ya! I was wandering through Hollywood Studios last week when I stopped short at the new menu display!

Just last year the Nestle Triple Blast replaced the original twisty, turny Itzakadoozie bar.

Now, behold: old things are new again! Kinda.

Snack Series: Frozen Pineapple Bar at Disney Parks

Frozen eats are a favorite for many Disney guests, and we just reviewed the Triple Blast Ice Pops that replaced those twisty-turny Itzakadoozies last year!

But while I love my share of Mickey Ice Cream Bars and Sandwiches, I decided on a recent trip to go back to one of my favorites — the Nestle Delicias Pineapple Bar — since I’d never written about it for you guys before! (It’s no Dole Whip, but I still like it!)

Pineapple Pop -- Under Wraps

Out of the wrapper, it looks just like the picture on the sign, a frozen pop of pineapple juice and pineapple chunks. It’s actually somewhat similar to the paletas that I sampled at La Cantina de San Angel.
