Review: Peanut Butter Pretzel Gourmet Treats in Disneyland for a Limited Time

It’s no big secret that a few classic confections like Caramel Apples, Marshmallow Wands, and Mickey Krispy Treats get some pretty stellar Gourmet makeovers on a regular basis at Disneyland.

But if you EVER happen to time your trip during the return of the Peanut Butter Pretzel Gourmet Treats, then run — seriously, tout suite — to your nearest Candy Kitchen (Candy Palace and Pooh Corner in Disneyland, Trolley Treats in Disney California Adventure, and Marceline’s Confectionery in Downtown Disney). Do not pause — not even to thank me for pointing you in their direction. Just get there and grab one! [Read more…]

Review: NEW VERSION Mickey S’more in Disneyland

Remember the return of the Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Sandwich I happened upon at Pooh Corner in Disneyland recently? If not, take a moment to click this link and gaze upon the wonder of it, then meet me right back here.

Okay, ready? Now, right next to it in the bakery case was another chocolate-covered treat: the Mickey S’more.

News: Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Sandwich Returns to Disneyland for a Trial Run

Anyone remember this beauty?

Oh, MY… how I loved the Peanut Butter Sandwich: a simple but practically perfect sweet-and-salty mix of peanut butter and graham cracker covered in a thick layer of chocolate! It used to be widely available in both Disney World and Disneyland. Then it slowly was removed from the scene in Disney World, to be found ONLY in Disneyland.

And then, the worst came to be. We got word that it was being phased out in Disneyland as well. And you ALL know the pain of having one of your favorite Disney snacks ripped mercilessly from your grip.

Dining in Disneyland: Gourmet Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie Treats

The Disneyland Resort changes their gourmet treats monthly.  The gourmet treat trio usually includes a Marshmallow Wand, a Caramel Apple, and a Mickey Crispy Treat.  Sometimes there is a bonus item like a packaged chocolate bark!  January’s flavor of the month is Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie and it’s amazing.

My take home project included the Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie Marshmallow Wand, a Mickey Crispy, and the Chocolate Bark.  Let’s start with my very favorite of the three: the Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie Bark.  This stuff is 100% addicting.  If you are a peanut butter fan, you’ll probably want to keep the entire 7 ounces to yourself and not share one single bite.

Dining in Disneyland: The Candy Cane Marshmallow Wand

Lately I’ve been a big fan of Disney Marshmallow Wands.  Fresh marshmallows dipped in gooey caramel, covered with chocolate then topped with various items: YUM!

In the past we’ve seen lots of fun marshmallow wands.  Everything from traditional sprinkles, to Reese’s Pieces, s’mores, character themed, and more.  The Candy Cane Marshmallow Wand is currently here for the season, and it’s wonderful!  I recently picked one up to enjoy at home and boy, am I glad I did.

Dining in Disneyland: Fun Halloween Time Candy Bags!

Halloween time is HERE! Themed treats and merchandise have already started to appear at the Disneyland Resort.  On a recent visit I spotted these perfectly packaged Seasonal Candy Bags at Disney California Adventure.

The artwork & packaging on these really caught my eye!  There are four different bag designs, each one containing a different type of candy.  The candies themselves are not new, but the packaging “make over” from previous years is going to have them flying off the shelves.  It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I think I like Donald’s “Terror in Tomorrowland” artwork best.
