Snack Series: The Mickey Marshmallow Wand

There are several stops around both Disney World and Disneyland with bakery cases that are full-to-overflowing with eye-catching goodies. In Disney World, these spots include Magic Kingdom’s Main Street Confectionery, Prairie Outpost and Supply, and Big Top Treats; Hollywood Studios’ Sweet Spells; and Downtown Disney’s Goofy’s Candy Company and the Candy Cauldron.

In Disneyland, they include Marceline’s Confectionery, Pooh Corner, Trolley Treats, and the Candy Palace.

A snack often found in these cases is the Marshmallow Wand. And we mention them on DFB fairly often because they change with the seasons.

Their decorative colors, sprinkles, and designs are one of the first things to signify some sort of celebration. We’ve seen them dressed up for the Winter Holidays

Recently, they even received a blue makeover to honor the Blu-Ray and DVD release of the Disney movie, “Frozen.”

Disney Food Pics of the Week: Disney Pretzels!

We are back with another installment of Disney Food Pics of the Week! It’s so much fun to pop in on the Disney Food Blog Photo Extravaganza, our Flickr group, and see what you guys have posted!

Today, I found some awesome pics over there of one of my favorite snack foods — Pretzels! But not just any pretzels…Disney Pretzels!

We all have our favorites — made from scratch soft pretzels in Epcot’s Germany Pavilion…sweet cream cheese or jalapeno cheese stuffed (awesomeness!)…or those killer pretzel breadsticks at Le Cellier!

There’s no shortage of interesting pretzel versions in the ‘Land and the ‘World, but wait til you see these! You’ll have a couple of brand new pretzel treats to add to your list for sure!

Mickey Pretzel

So many choices…but I couldn’t resist starting with one of my favorites, the Mickey-Shaped Pretzel! Available now on both coasts, seeing that cute/creepy little face rendered in puffy soft pretzel dough just makes me smile every. Single. Time.

Dining in Disneyland: New Cake Pops Spotted at the Disneyland Resort

I never miss an opportunity to see what Marceline’s in Downtown Disney is up to.  Even if I’m just quickly walking by, I always pop in to see if there is anything new.

On a recent visit, two fun cake pops caught my eye.  The Goofy and Cheshire Cat inspired cake pops appear to be close relatives to their caramel apple counterparts.  (You can read about the delicious Cheshire Cat Caramel apple here and the disastrous Goofy Caramel Apple here.)

This post though, is all about their mini lookalikes, which were introduced to the resort at the beginning of August.

New Cheshire Cat and Goofy Cake Pops Join Mike Wazowski!

Since I had already tried a Mike Wazowski cake pop (on more than one occasion) during the Monstrous Summer season, I purchased a Cheshire Cat and Goofy cake pop to go.  We were staying on property for the weekend, so I walked them back to the Disneyland Hotel for a little in-room review.

First up, we’ll take a look at the Cheshire Cat.

Round with tiny triangular ears and a great big chocolate smile, the Cheshire Cat is covered with purple and pink sanding sugar. Take a bite into those ears and you’ll find [Read more…]

Dining in Disneyland: Gummi Candy Corn

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Fall is upon us and Halloween treats have begun to pop up at the Disney Resorts.

The decorations are coming out and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us this Halloween season.  Marceline’s in Downtown Disney is ready!

Halloween 2013 is Here!

From what I’ve noticed amongst the people I know, you either love candy corn or you hate it. I don’t really know anyone that has an in-between feeling about it.

I’ve been eyeing these Gummi Candy Corn bags for the last few years. Because of their buttery smell — literally they smell like butter if you take a whiff of the package — I was a little bit scared to try them.

I do love Candy Corn though, so when a friend of mine suggested we try a bag, I decided it was finally time to give them a chance.
