Are you a cotton candy enthusiast? Well, brace yourself — Goofy’s Candy Company at Disney Springs has introduced a whole new range of Gourmet Cotton Candy flavors just in time for the holidays.
The new Gourmet Cotton Candy is a little different from the classic Disney World cotton candy you might be used to. This sweet treat is only here for a limited time, too. Read on to learn all about it!
The new Gourmet Cotton Candy, on the other hand, looks like this and comes on a paper cone!
Note: Because this recipe is different from the original cotton candy, Cast Members actually recommend not putting it into a bag. If you do, this Gourmet Cotton Candy has a tendency to shrink and deflate quickly. While the traditional cotton candy will keep for a few days, this gourmet version is best enjoyed immediately.
Each order is made by hand at its own special station within Goofy’s Candy Company. This recipe uses natural flavors and colors, so you won’t find any vivid pink, purple, and blue hues here. At $5.49 per order, Gourmet Cotton Candy is slightly more expensive than regular cotton candy.
The flavor list is extensive! Choose from Berry Smoothie, Birthday Cake, Bubble Gum, Cinnamon Bun, Cookie Dough, Lemon Drop, Mango, Pink Lemonade, Strawberry, Toasted Marshmallow, Gingerbread Man, Candy Cane, and Egg Nog.
The holiday flavors, Gingerbread Man, Candy Cane, and Egg Nog, are also available on the Christmas Tree Trail.
We tried the Toasted Marshmallow (because who can resist!?) and Lemon Drop (based on Cast Member recommendation) flavors. Both were delicious! The Toasted Marshmallow was our favorite, but people who enjoy lemon flavor that’s more sweet than sour will really like the Lemon Drop. As most cotton candy tends to be, it’s very sweet.
The texture was noticeably different than the standard cotton candy recipe, too. The Gourmet Cotton Candy is more airy, but it’s also more firm and a bit stickier.
If you’re looking for a sweet snack to enjoy while strolling through Disney Springs or enjoying the Christmas Tree Trail, the new Gourmet Cotton Candy is definitely a fun option. If you want something to take back to your resort and enjoy later, though, skip this and go for the regular cotton candy.
