The Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays has officially kicked off for the season!
We’ve been busy trying all the new treats and sweets at each Holiday Kitchen in World Showcase. Now, other EPCOT locations have joined in the festivities! Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie bakes up some beautiful desserts and French pastries throughout the year. The bakery is currently serving a traditional Bûche de Noël aux Trois Chocolats for the season!
We recently tried the Maple Bûche de Noël at the Yukon Holiday Kitchen. The idea is similar in that they are both inspired by the traditional Yule Log dessert. The cake served at Les Halles is made with different ingredients and looks quite different as well. This Bûche de Noël is made with three chocolate creams and a chocolate crunch biscuit.
The Bûche de Noël is incredibly chocolatey. The tastes we experienced were chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate! This isn’t too surprising as the description lists three chocolates in the ingredients. This dessert is absolutely meant for guests who love chocolate!
We couldn’t find the advertised “crunch” anywhere with the chocolate mousse dessert. We wished we experienced a different texture or perhaps another flavor to balance out the mousse. There are a lot of good treats at the Festival of the Holidays so you have plenty of options if you don’t prefer the taste of pure chocolate.
The Bûche de Noël is $6.75. We do think there are more inspired treats to try at the festival this year. That said, the Bûche de Noël was made well and with good ingredients. We will continue to try all of the treats this holiday season, so stay tuned for our reviews!
