Dining in Disneyland: Haunted Mansion Popcorn and Gummies

Serpents and spiders, tail of a rat, call in the spirits wherever they’re at… because Haunted Mansion Treats!  I first spotted these in early October, but just recently went back to purchase and try them.

Haunted Mansion Gummies & Popcorn

I purchased both and brought them home to my live-in sweets specialists.  Let’s start with the Popcorn.  The packaging is so great. I love Gus the hitchhiking ghost on the front, and the teal and purple colors of the popcorn are so pretty!  Yes, I just said that popcorn is pretty.

Pretty Popcorn!

Perfect Packaging

The packaging says “Naturally and Artificially Flavored.”  We were super curious to try it and see what the exact flavors were.

We were guessing maybe blue raspberry and grape.  But after trying it, it was [Read more…]

Spotted: Pokemon, Mario, and Thomas & Friends Treats in Epcot’s Japan Pavilion

Today, we are back with another fun and wacky trip through Mitsukoshi Department Store in the Japan Pavilion of Epcot’s World Showcase.

Mitsukoshi Department Store

Seriously, I haven’t been to the actual country of Japan. (Yet.) But if the department stores there are half as awesome as Mitsukoshi is, then I’m booking the next flight.

I mean, where else can you go to buy all things Hello Kitty; the coolest kimonos, chopsticks, and tea sets imaginable; plus monorail plates (I know. They’re bullet trains. Whatever.) — AND pearls?!?

And don’t even get me started on the Pocky and Sake! (See what I just did there?) Plus a myriad of other fun eats.

Well, we’re staying with the theme of animation on this trip, as we take another fun look at cool candy you can score in the Japan Pavilion.

Pokémon, Mario, and Thomas & Friends Food Finds

Let’s get the party started with everyone’s favorite little anime…dude — Pikachu from the world of Pokémon. Well, I mean, he’s in the front. But he has his buddies with him on this “Drink for Entertainment”.

If you’d like to get some insight into what you’ll be ingesting, have a peek at the nutritional information and contents on the back. Although I don’t promise that either will be very illuminating.

Spotted! Princess Candy at Disney Parks

It’s always fun to take a look around the shops at Walt Disney World and Disneyland just to see what’s been added since I was there last.

This time, it was two brand new bags of Disney Princess-themed candy. Varieties include Gummi Butterflies and Rock Candy.

Clad in pink bags with an assortment of princesses on the front, the bags actually have little crown-shaped windows so you can see the treats before you purchase them.

On the other side of the bags [Read more…]

Stuff That’s Rad: Disney Gummy Kabobs

Another thing that’s rad from Dining in Disneyland columnist Heather Sievers!!

Just recently I was at The Candy Palace on Main Street in Disneyland when these adorable gummy kabobs caught my eye.  My boys were not with me, so as a little surprise treat, I picked up 2 of the Fab 5 Disney character ones that include Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Donald & Goofy in that order from top to bottom.

Fab 5 Gummy Kabobs at The Candy Palace

Each character is its own piece, so there are actually 5 pieces skewered on the stick.  On our next visit, I found the Pixar gummy kabobs at Marceline’s in Downtown Disney.  Its characters include Woody, Buzz, Mike Wizoski, Dori & Nemo in that order from top to bottom.  Looking closely at these you will notice the [Read more…]
