Let’s face it: sometimes it’s just nice to bring a little bit of Disney home with you to help you get over those post-Disney blues! And if you have a handful of Disney Dining Plan snack credits left over at the end of your Disney World trip or you’ve got friends and family you’d like to surprise with a treat, Disney foods make some terrific souvenirs!
Here are my top five favorite snacks to bring home from the parks!
Caramel Corn from Epcot’s Karamell Küche
This delicious snack is downright heavenly. Ever since Karamell Küche opened in the Fall of 2010, it’s been a must-stop location for me every time I’m in Epcot — even if my only reason for being there is to smell the gorgeous smells coming from those candy kitchens!
Read all about how the caramel corn is made in this post! A small bag is $3.99 or a snack credit. A large bag is $5.99. And if you’re swimming in snack credits, I say pick up one bag for now and one for later! (It makes a terrific plane snack!)
You can find it at all of the candy counters in Walt Disney World and Disneyland, and it’s pretty amazing! The candy cast members make dozens of fudge flavors right on the premises, so it’s 100% fresh for you! Fudge is $4.39 (or a snack credit) per piece, but you may find you can purchase six pieces of fudge and get a discount! Read more about the wonders of Disney fudge here.
Mickey Rice Krispie Treat
These classic snacks always top the “best” lists for travelers to Disney parks. Relatively low-fat and full of that classic Krispie Treat flavor, you just can’t go wrong with a Mickey-shaped Rice Krispie Treat. Find these yummy snacks dipped in chocolate or plain and in all different sizes!
These usually cost between $4 and $6, depending on the chocolate dipping and decoration (large versions like the one pictured first are higher priced). You can also purchase the small treats for a snack credit.
Disney Parks corner the market on caramel apples! Creating gorgeous and innovative treats piled high with toppings, you’re bound to find one that you can’t pass up. Nuts, chocolate, candy, cookie crumbs, candy bars, and more have been known to top these goodies. Don’t forget to ask the cast member to cut it up for you if you’d like to eat it that day. Of course, if you’re purchasing it to bring home, leaving it whole will help it last longer.
Some of the more decorated apples will cost you upwards of $10 or more — but they’re large and fun to share (if you’re so inclined). You can find them in most candy shops on Disney World and Disneyland property. Usually these are not available for a snack credit — gotta pay out of pocket.
Make-Your-Own Treat From Goofy’s Candy Company
If you want the ultimate take-home snack, head to Goofy’s Candy Company in Disney World’s Disney Springs. Browse through the offerings, and choose from Mickey Rice Krispie Treats, Caramel Apples, marshmallows, and gingerbread cookies as your base snack. From there, decorate to your heart’s content! Choose a chocolate coating, a topping, and a drizzle flavor; then add more for an extra cost. On my recent visit, I asked that a Mickey Rice Krispie Treat be dipped in white chocolate, coated in Oreo cookie crumbs, and drizzled with milk chocolate! These are conveniently boxed for you to take home!
These treats range from around $5-10 depending on the base snack and toppings you choose. You can also use a Disney Dining Plan snack credit on the rice krispie treat, the marshmallow, and the gingerbread cookie (with one chocolate dip, one topping, and one drizzle)! (Unfortunately the create-your-own apple is not snack credit eligible.)
