The Disney-Pixar film Up! is known for its steadfast commitment to adventuring — and in that spirit, the foodie brains behind Jolly Holiday Bakery‘s contributions to Pixar Fest at Disneyland Resort have created a tart in that same spirit: the Adventure Tart. And while the flavors aren’t going to transport you to another land, it’ll still leave you satisfied with the journey.
The tart appears to be in the spirit of everyone’s favorite childhood breakfast dessert: a Pop Tart. In shape and in composition, the Adventure Tart mimics this cereal-aisle gem. The rectangular Adventure Tart is covered in a thin layer of nondescript glaze on which is attached an iconic image from the film: Carl, Russell, Dug, and the ubiquitous house kept aloft by colorful balloons.
The image is actually pretty decent in terms of clarity (once you get out from under the Bakery’s artificial lights!) and the characters are as charming as ever.
The Adventure Tart is a sizable treat (just as Jolly Holiday’s other contribution — the Specialty Eclair — is!). No skimping on size here just because its a limited-time festival offering!
And the pastry itself is terrific! It’s flaky and buttery and golden brown. Definitely an upgrade from any packaged tart!
Inside is Chocolate Hazelnut Spread — making this a surefire hit with the Nutella set!
There’s a lot of filling in there, so you won’t feel like you’ve got too much pastry to go with that filling. Overall, it’s pretty rich and utterly enjoyable.
We’d love to see this one get even more adventurous with some alternative fillings — like some fruit spreads or maybe even something savory. Go out on a limb! Live a little! In the meantime, don’t mind us as we scoop Up! even more of these…
