Disney Food Hacks: Mickey Pretzel and Chocolate!

One of the great, simple joys of visiting the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World is grabbing a Mickey Pretzel in the shadow of Cinderella Castle. And not just because Mickey Pretzels come with a container of cheese (although that’s also idyllic). It’s just such a sweet moment.

Epcot Food and Wine Festival Recipe: Griddled Greek Cheese with Pistachios and Honey from Greece

One of the surprise hits of the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival last year was the Griddled Greek Cheese with Pistachios and Honey from the super popular Greece Booth.

I was so glad to see that this menu item is back at the booth in 2012! (To see more photos and Food and Wine Festival menus, be sure to check out our complete list of Epcot Food and Wine Festival Booths, Menus, and Food Photos!)

Greece Booth

A perfect combination of sweet and salty flavors, this dish also introduces interesting textures into the mix with the griddled cheese and nuts. It proved to be so popular last year that distributors had a hard time keeping up with the demand — the dish sold out several times toward the end of the festival!
