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.
Imagine my surprise — and delight — when I happened upon THIS at Pooh Corner in Critter Country YESTERDAY!
According to a Cast Member I spoke with, Disney has brought them back for a trial run!
The difference? These days they are made in-house (previously, Disney had purchased them from a third party), so they’re slightly different than the previous version.
The outer chocolate layer has been spruced up a bit with a dark chocolate Mickey and sprinkling of nuts.
And inside, you’ll notice that the layer of peanut butter is MUCH thicker than the nearly half-and-half ratio of the previous sandwich. WOO!
Remember, the Cast Member said this is a trial run only. It’s definitely available at Pooh Corner, but I didn’t get over to Candy Palace or Trolley Treats to check their stock, yet, so let me know if you see it in either of those two spots.
Availability may change at any time. It probably goes without saying that I’m hoping it passes the trial test. Just in case, though, I’m grabbing a few extra for the road. And if you spot it I’d HIGHLY suggest picking one (or two. Or five.) up for yourself!
Are you glad to see the return of the Disneyland Peanut Butter Sandwich? Please let us know with a comment!
