DFB Reader Finds
The Jumbo Turkey Legs are an iconic snack at the Disney Parks. You either love ’em or you don’t. DFB reader Camille Cobrando tweeted to us about the Turkey Legs: “Thank you @DisneyFoodBlog for informing me that #turkeylegs are over 1000 calories. For a split second, I contemplated giving them up, then I laughed at myself for even thinking that.” Camille, we are happy to hear that you love them!
