“SUGAR! Ooooh, honey, honey!” We’re positively BUZZING to try all of the eats and sips available at this year’s Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival! We’ve had eats inspired by every type of garden, and now we’re chowing down on some particularly BEE-lightful eats!
That’s because we’re skipping over to The Honey Bee-stro Hosted by National Honey Board™ where nature’s sweetener has given us a pretty exciting menu. Of course, we’ve already seen the Spike the Bee Sipper and what comes inside, but we’re pumped to give this booth a FULL visit!
While this location was closed for the entirety of the day yesterday, we’re really happy that it’s up and runnin’ today!
The menu at The Honey Bee-stro is full of food and drink options that are infused with nature’s sweetest nectar. Oh, AND a souvenir sipper!!
As for the eats, all of the food options are returning from last year (perfect, because we loved them then too!). There’s the Roasted Cauliflower dish made with buckwheat honey carrot puree, wild rice pilaf, asparagus, honey blistered grapes, sunflower brittle, and coriander flowers for $4.50.
For those looking for something a little meatier, the Honey Tandoori Chicken Flatbread is always an option for $5.75. This sizeable snack comes topped with white cheddar cheese, charred vegetables, clover honey sour cream, and micro citrus greens.
And to satisfy our sweet tooth, we’re tasting the Local Wildflower Honey-Mascarpone Cheesecake with orange blossom honey ice cream garnished with fennel pollen meringue kisses. This treat is so cute and costs $5.00. If you’re not a chocolate fan, this might be the dessert for you. The cheesecake was nice and creamy and we could definitely taste the honey in it.
Of course, the all-new Spike the Bee Sipper is available at this booth this year! While you could snag it at Pineapple Promenade yesterday, today, he’s back where he belongs! Get this lovable little guy for $15.00 filled with the ever so yummy Honey-Peach Freeze.
Though the Honey Peach Freeze is non-alcoholic and there is an option to add Blueberry Vodka for $12.00! It tastes almost exactly like the Freeze, but with the added vodka flavor. It wasn’t super sweet, but we don’t know if we could handle more than the cup we got.
And the alcoholic freeze isn’t the only boozy option at this booth. You can also snag the B. Nektar New Wave Lemonade Mead from Ferndale, Michigan for $5.00. We thought this was a very yummy drink option and it had a lot of bright and tangy notes.
For wine drinkers, there’s the option of the Florida Orange Groves Winery Orange Blossom Honey Wine from St. Petersburg, Florida for $6.00.
We can’t think of anything sweeter than the eats at this booth — except maybe just plain old honey! Head on over to The Honey Bee-stro to get your buzz on!
