But if you EVER happen to time your trip during the return of the Peanut Butter Pretzel Gourmet Treats, then run — seriously, tout suite — to your nearest Candy Kitchen (Candy Palace and Pooh Corner in Disneyland, Trolley Treats in Disney California Adventure, and Marceline’s Confectionery in Downtown Disney). Do not pause — not even to thank me for pointing you in their direction. Just get there and grab one! [Read more…]
Remember the return of the Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Sandwich I happened upon at Pooh Corner in Disneyland recently? If not, take a moment to click this link and gaze upon the wonder of it, then meet me right back here.
Okay, ready? Now, right next to it in the bakery case was another chocolate-covered treat: the Mickey S’more.
And just like its neighbor, the Peanut Butter Sandwich, after being discontinued for a few months, the S’more has received a bit of a makeover. [Read more…]
Anyone remember this beauty?
Oh, MY… how I loved the Peanut Butter Sandwich: a simple but practically perfect sweet-and-salty mix of peanut butter and graham cracker covered in a thick layer of chocolate! It used to be widely available in both Disney World and Disneyland. Then it slowly was removed from the scene in Disney World, to be found ONLY in Disneyland.
And then, the worst came to be. We got word that it was being phased out in Disneyland as well. And you ALL know the pain of having one of your favorite Disney snacks ripped mercilessly from your grip.
We are back with another “ya gotta try it” Disneyland Snack Hack today!
Our Dining in Disneyland guru Heather is full of fantastic ideas when it comes to inventing brand new snacks. And starting with a favorite is always a guarantee for success.
For our latest Snack Hack, we’re heading straight into Disney California Adventure. [Read more…]
We are back to bring you news of another delicious Disneyland Snack Hack!
A while ago, we shared how you can make a dreamy Dole Whip even more wonderful — just add Tajin Spice from Tropical Imports! But today, we’re going another direction entirely and bringing two of our favorite Disney treats together in the process.
Churros are a must on every Disneyland trip. But there’s nothing better than adding those warm, sweet fried treats to something cold and creamy. And that’s why we love making our very own Churro Sundae. Thanks to our Dining in Disneyland authority Heather for dreaming up this amazing treat! [Read more…]
So, last month I headed out west for the 24-Hour Kickoff of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Anniversary Celebration …and pretty much ate my way through Disneyland in three days. SO, I have LOTS to share with you here on the blog of my epic Diamond eating adventure.
But, today I’m going to highlight one of the best things I ate, hands down, during those three days. And that’s saying something, because I had a Bacon Mac & Cheese Cone, brunch at Club 33, all five Jungle Skewers at the Bengal Barbecue and so much more.
Are you ready? Then allow me to set the scene…you wander into the Candy Palace to check the candy cases to see what’s new…
And here they are… [Read more…]
We’re featuring one of our favorite Disneyland snacks today. But we aren’t just gonna tell you about how awesome it is; we’re giving you the recipe, too!
If you haven’t had the pleasure of dining at Disneyland’s Hungry Bear Restaurant, I suggest you remedy that the very next time you can!
And once you finish up a hearty lunch or dinner at this rustic spot with a view, be sure to save room for dessert.
We love their individual pies…
But we can never pass up their Lemon Bumblebee Cupcake!
So we were pretty excited to find this recipe — what’s not to love when there’s lemon curd involved?!? The perfect treat for the first weekend of 2015, no?
Lemon Bumblebee Cupcakes
Hungry Bear Restaurant, Disneyland
Makes 16 Lemon Bumblebee Cupcakes (plus 8 extra plain cupcakes)
We are stopping into Disneyland’s Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe to check out a new sweet treat that recently debuted!
Although Jolly Holiday is a fairly new addition to Main Street USA, the atmosphere of this spot is so perfectly excecuted that you’d swear it’s been there since Walt Disney walked these streets! Whenever I’m in Disneyland, even if it’s only for a short trip — and on this trip I was there for about 36 hours — I have to make time for this place.
The counter service spot celebrates all things Mary Poppins. Seating is outdoors here, but that’s perfectly fine with me — look how cheerful the patio setting is! (Seriously, is the weather EVER bad here?)
Inside, you’ll find touches everywhere that remind you of the film. Porcelain figurines bring a couple of the best movie scenes to life. I love this one of Mary on her carousel horse!
After a look around at all the wonderful touches, I wanted to see just what was new in the bakery cases! The lunch menu gives you an idea of the general offerings at Jolly Holiday. But the bakery has also become a landing spot for new and seasonal treats. Heather shared a few of them with you not too long ago!
This time out, I saw a bunch of new things. But one treat in particular called my name, and I know it’ll call yours, too!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Whoopie Pie
Since it opened in a couple of years ago, Jolly Holiday has been a popular spot. But lately, they’ve really stepped up their game by offering some fantastic seasonal and limited-time options.
When I heard that they had debuted a Chocolate Peanut Butter Whoopie Pie? Wild horses and all that.
