I haven’t tried them yet, but I love the look of the Mickey Shaped Licorice. I’m curious to see if they have more of a Red Vines type or taste, or if they are more [Read more…]

Disney Food for Families: It’s a World of [Better] Candy

As we celebrate the USA today, Disney Food for Families columnist Erin Foster is back with some very good news about the candy sold at Epcot’s America pavilion!

America Pavilion in Epcot

Regular Disney Food Blog readers may remember that a few weeks back I wrote about my family’s epic quest to consume candy in each of Epoct World Showcase’s eleven countries.

Several of the countries sold a bonanza of fabulous treats, making it difficult to choose just one. (I’m talking to you Japan, Italy, and France.) But I bemoaned the fact that there was very little candy in the America pavilion, and what was there was a tired replay of the Disney branded candy available in every other merchandise location on property. I suggested that Disney rev up its offerings by including “American nostalgic or regional specialty candies” or sweets from an American candy company like Hershey or Mars.

So imagine my surprise and delight when I took a spin through Epcot recently, walked into the America pavilion and saw this — an entire wall, plus two double-sided, free-standing display racks, of American nostalgic and regional specialty candies and sweets from Hershey and Mars, which according to super-helpful cast member Chris from Orlando, had been installed just the day before my arrival. It’s like they knew I was coming. SCORE!

Did Someone Say Wedding? Time For a Candy Bar!

That’s right! A Candy Bar.

No… not a candy bar

A Candy Bar!

Yep, when I was at the Disney Social Media Moms conference last month the attendees were treated to a real live Candy Bar! How cool is this?! All of my favorites were there, including those fabulously sour, chalky suckers that fall off of their sticks half the time but are still ab fab — you know what I’m talking about…

Jelly Beans, Rock Candy, Ribbon Candy, Giant Lollipops, Chocolate Candies… you name it! And [Read more…]

Disney’s Nostalgic Candy Items

One of the Disney Theme Parks’ main goals is to make you feel like a kid again when you’re visiting, and a great way to do that is to offer you some favorite candies from your childhood! Let’s take a look at a few of the sugary sweets you can find in the parks that will surely bring back memories…

Lollipops and Taffy
Two seashore sweets that you can surely remember begging your parents to splurge on for you during the summers as a kid, the Disney lollipops (which we covered in detail in our previous post, “Sucker Punch“) and taffy in Disney Parks remain as bright and alluring as they were when you were six-and-a-half.

While you probably still couldn’t finish a whole lollipop, there’s nothin’ sayin’ you can’t try! And with [Read more…]
