If you have a sweet tooth this is the Halloween Time stop for you. Schmoozies is serving up a Croissant Donut, Caramel Apple Smoothie, and Whoopie Pie. And yes, we got all three of them!
Let’s start with the Caramel Apple Smoothie. It’s all there – the caramel, the green apple, and of course the ice cream.
The sharpness of the green apple complimented the caramel and whipped cream – and toned down what could have been a really sweet drink. But I was glad to taste that there’s a real creaminess and richness to this – the green apple is subtle and not overwhelming.
We decided to go with the Whoopie Pie next. Look at the bats! This not-too-spooky looking Whoopie Pie contains a healthy serving of espresso chip ice cream between two cake cookies.
This was a large-enough portion to be shared if you’re getting multiple treats. The coffee flavor here is STRONG, though, so if you’re not a coffee fan, you’ll want to skip this one.
Now, we saved the best for last. And when we say best – this could be the best thing we’ve eaten so far at Halloween Time.
OK, this looks like any ordinary eclair when you get it – except it’s decorated like a mummy, which makes it darn cute. But when you bite into this fried, buttery, croissanty (is that a word?), peanut buttery and jelly croissant donut you know you aren’t eating just any old cro-nut, donut, or eclair! You suddenly give thanks to the creative minds and chefs that developed this little piece of food-heaven.
The pastry here was light, airy, and soft — NOTHING stale about this. The filling was a rich, creamy peanut butter…well, the texture was almost a mousse! And paired with that jelly it was so much fun. Overall, the sheer size, quality, and flavor of this item won me over immediately. And for someone who usually dismisses cronuts due to so many of them being stale and crunchy by the time I get them, that’s saying something. GET. THIS. NOW.
If we had to end our epic food tour of all things Halloween at Disneyland, we would be happy we ended it with this croissant donut. But our food tour continues!
