Snack Series: Hot Salted Caramel and More at Prost! Kiosk in Epcot’s Germany Pavilion

It’s baaaack!! As expected, and for third year in a row, the Epcot Germany kiosk selling warm, spicy glühwein for the 2012 holiday season. But this year it’s bigger and better than ever!

This seating area (over by the giant nutcracker) is also where the Germany storyteller shares fun and historical holiday tales throughout the season.

We sampled three of the brand new offerings on the menu!

But I had to try something I’ve never sampled before. I’ve always wanted to experience hot Gluhwein — a spiced German wine sold primarily during the holidays at Christmas-y German-y events like Christmas Markets and things like that. And, lo and behold, there [Read more…]
