Walt Disney World
is never shy to jump on the bandwagon of snack trends, and we love them for it! Edible cookie dough is one such trend — and it’s popping up all over the place! We first spotted it at All-Star Sports back in July, then it arrived (in Mickey style!!) at AristoCrepes in Disney Springs. Now there’s a second Disney Springs locale getting in on the action: B. B. Wolf’s!
Flavor combinations in edible cookie dough can be as diverse as cookies themselves, and AristoCrepes offered the most unique combo we’d seen thus far with Gingerbread Butterscotch. But B. B. Wolf’s is taking it there with Maple Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough!
Bacon in dessert can be a little hit or miss for us, but this one looks promising enough with lots of crispy bacon bits on top of the otherwise ordinary-looking cookie dough. The bacon, sadly, isn’t caramelized or sweetened in anyway, so it’s just a serious savory bomb. This creates a really stark contrast to the otherwise sweet dessert.
For us, this uber-savory addition didn’t work. It’s too salty and overpowers the (relatively nonexistent) maple and chocolate, both of which take a backseat to the super-salty bacon. There are plenty of chocolate chips in there, but they can’t compete with the bossy bacon. And the cookie dough flavor itself just isn’t there.
The concept we do not dispute, but it’s a little clunky and thus out of balance. If you’re spending $4.50, find a snack that’s hitting all the right notes, not one that needs to be edited.
