Our Favorite Savory Snacks in Disneyland

Here at DFB, we talk a little about sweet snacks. You know, now and then.

Favorite Disneyland Snacks

Ok. We talk about them a LOT. And when we aren’t talking about them, it’s probably because we’re eating them. So we can talk about them some more.

But that shouldn’t lead you to believe that we love savory snacks any less.

I’ve talked about many of my favorite sweets, and even a few sweet and salty options. But today, I’m giving the post over completely to the non-sweet team.

These guys can double as a meal if you’d like them to. Or they can just give you that little boost between breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Let’s take a closer look at some of my favorites.

Flavored Popcorn at Cozy Cone Motel

Recently, I discovered a stand in Epcot that’s offering one of the best things ever — Flavored Popcorn! While we’ve seen the reports of such delights from Tokyo Disneyland, it’s the first time something besides Caramel Corn has made much of a splash at Walt Disney World.

But that isn’t the case at Disneyland, where Flavored Popcorn has been a mainstay of at the Cozy Cone Motel since it opened!

And inside that Popcone, there are some yummy Flavored Popcorn options. They change up every once in a while, so you’ll never know what you might get!

Personally, I’d be pretty happy with either Dill Pickle OR Nacho Cheese!

Skewers and Tiger Tails at Bengal Barbecue

Bengal Barbecue is one of my favorite stops for a quick bite in all of Disneyland. In fact, it made my Top 10 List of Favorite Disneyland Fast Food Joints.

The spot is little more than a stand with a grill. Don’t look for scads of seating; there’s not much. But what they do have plenty of are delicious savory bites that can serve as either a snack or a meal.

And the name of the game here is Meat on Skewers. (Okay…there are a few veggies, too.)

I have a hard time choosing a favorite at Bengal, so I’ll show you a bunch! I like to get a few of the different options and share. (Or not.)

I recommend starting with the Chieftain Chicken Skewer. Chunks of Chicken Meat are grilled and then smothered in a sweet, slightly spicy Chili Sauce.

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.
