Review: Salted Oatmeal Cornflake Cookie, Brownie, and Cap’n Crunch Ice Cream Sandwich at Sprinkles in Disney Springs

::Gasp!:: OK, I know that’s a LONG title…but I HAD to let you know what we’re in for!

I stopped by the new Sprinkles in Disney Springs on my recent trip to Walt Disney World. And I seriously could not. Stop. Trying new things.

You already know about their fantastic Cupcakes. And we’ve also shared our impressions of their Sundae — homemade Ice Cream craftily layered with your choice of Cupcake, so you get a lil bit of everything in every bite. HEAVEN.

But guess what? There’s even more!

I just shared those incredible Seasonal Cupcakes with you. (If the Lemon Meringue and the German Chocolate Cupcakes are gone when you’re there, look for the Caramel Apple and S’mores versions for Fall!)

But I’ve gotta come clean. That’s not all I tried while I was in town.

Because they also offer one of my most favorite things ever: Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches.

You know I’m a big fan of Disney’s version of these. But wait, just wait, until you see the outrageousness that awaited us at Sprinkles.

Let’s Go.

So the amazing thing about the Sprinkles Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich is that it’s totally customizable. Name your cookies. Name your ice cream. Mix and match to your heart’s content.

I’ve already offered you a little foreshadowing of what awaits. But let’s back up a little, because I want to show you how your Cookies come to you if you just order one solo. [Read more…]

Review: Lemon Meringue and German Chocolate Seasonal Cupcake Flavors at Sprinkles in Disney Springs

I was in Walt Disney World recently for a quick visit.

And even though it was a super short visit, mostly due to the opening of the 2016 Epcot Food and Wine Festival, I HAD to head over to Disney Springs. But — and I know you totally saw this coming! — my first stop was Sprinkles!

I’ve made no secret that I’m a HUGE fan of Sprinkles. So it’s only natural that Sprinkles + Disney equals Dream Come True territory for me.

I love all of their treats — Cupcakes, Cookies, Ice Cream, you name it. And who can resist a Cupcake ATM for your After Hours Cupcake neeeeeeeds??

But today, I’m checking out their Seasonal Cupcake Flavors. And if they look good to you, hightail it over to Sprinkles and get ‘em before they’re gone!

(Also, I apologize in advance for all the upcoming Sprinkles posts here on DFB.)

Let’s kick off the party with the Lemon Meringue Cupcake.
