Here’s a bit of news for ya — there are about to be some changes coming up with Disney-branded, pre-packaged snacks and we have a sneak peek for you today at one of the new varieties!
The parks and resorts will soon start selling a Disney-branded allergy friendly line of snacks!
The new line will include Chocolate Chip Crunchy Cookies, Sugar Crisp Crunchy Cookies, and Mountain Mambo Seed & Fruit Mix. The allergy friendly snacks will be billed “Snacks with Character,” and each will feature a well-known Disney character. No exact date yet on when these will be officially released, but let’s check out the Chocolate Chip Crunchy Cookies!
You can see that these are Disney-branded, but are produced by the Enjoy Life company, who has been selling allergy friendly goodies to Disney parks and resorts for years. So these cookies will likely not be all that new to families who have been buying the Enjoy Life brand on their prior trips to Disney parks.
The packaging prominently lists ingredients not included: Gluten, Nut, Dairy, Soy and GMO.
The package includes 2 cookies for $2.76. The cookies themselves are slightly larger than a typical pre-packaged cookie that you would find in a grocery store.
They are a thinner cookie and are super crunchy.
If you’re a fan of crunchy cookies, these will fit the bill. They taste great and are a good choice for a sweet treat for those dining with food allergies.
These also offer a fresh flavor for being a pre-packaged snack.
Overall I’m excited to see this new snack option for guests and looking forward to other varieties on their way. But what I think is especially exciting about these is that kids who have food allergies will now be able to indulge in a Disney-branded suitable snack. What’s the big deal? Well, when you’re a kid and all you want is those amazing-looking treats that have Mickey, Donald, Goofy, and all the other Disney characters on the packaging, but you have to settle for a generic-looking substitute while your brother/sister/friend gets the Disney character snacks…well, that kind of stinks.
Now, with Disney-branding on these allergy-friendly treats, even kids with allergies will be able to have that true Disney magical experience of eating yummy food with a Mickey on the bag. It’s the little things.
