Review: NEW VERSION Mickey S’more in Disneyland

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.

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…]

News: Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Sandwich Returns to Disneyland for a Trial Run

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.

Disney Recipe: Corn Chowder Soup from Storytellers Cafe at Disneyland’s Grand Californian Resort

One of the best things about summer has to be enjoying fresh corn on the cob, straight from the farmer’s market! And one of our favorite recipes to make with that fresh corn is the Corn Chowder Soup from the Storytellers Cafe at Disneyland’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa.

This is no ordinary corn chowder – it’s filled with fresh corn, potatoes, and chicken. And, to make it even more delicious, it’s topped with crumbled bacon!

This dish really is a must-try at Storytellers Cafe and now you can make it at home any time you want.

Making this soup will take some time, but it’s perfect for a rainy day!

Dining in Disneyland: Banana Fritters from Royal St. Veranda

Royal St. Veranda in New Orleans Square is one of my favorite dining gems in Disneyland.  They are most known for their Clam Chowder in a Bread Bowl, but I go there for the fritters!

Royal St. Veranda

This spot is located just underneath the staircase to the Dream Suite — right next to Pirates of the Caribbean. It’s simply a walk-up window and a few tables and chairs scattered around. Nothing major, and nothing visually to draw you in. But the menu has always been a guest favorite and you’re about to see why!
