We are all for dressing up ice cream here at DFB.
Our one true love is Dole Whip, but every once in a while (ok, every time), we go crazy and try all the new soft-serve flavors that pop up around the park. Sometimes it’s a big hit, like the Peter Pan Float, and other times, it’s a complete miss (sorry, 2019 Poor Unfortunate Soul Float). And, today when we were roaming around Magic Kingdom, we noticed that one of our not-so-favorite flavors was still around. So we thought of a way that may make it a little better.
Storybook Treats tends to be the place that adventurous soft-serve ends up and that’s exactly where the Cherry Soft-Serve is hanging out right now. The flavor has stuck around since Christmas but it wasn’t on the menu. That is…until today! The location now has menu boards advertising the flavor.
Now, we didn’t love this flavor when it first came out but we’re all for second chances here. So, we decided to give it another try, but this time with coke. That’s right, we made a cherry coke float WITHOUT cherry coke. When we ordered, we asked for a Cherry Soft-Serve float with Diet Coke and they whipped it together for us!
So, could diet coke save the cherry soft serve from making our “worst snacks in Disney World” list? Kind of! The diet coke took balanced out the cherry medicine flavor from the soft serve and we actually didn’t mind it. But, it wasn’t a cute look when we got a bite of just the cherry — we just can’t get behind it.
If you’re looking to give this a try at Magic Kingdom, you can order the float for $5.49 or a cup of the soft-serve for $4.99. And, you can even try it another way and swirl the flavor with vanilla soft-serve. So many ways to customize your snack! Stay tuned for more Disney food news and updates!
