Thanksgiving is coming up, folks!
We are READY for some turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie (and, like, 1000 other sides). Disney World has some seasonal food they put out for the holiday, like traditional Thanksgiving dinners and some twists on the classics. And, there is a returning treat at one of the Disney World hotels that is sure to make ya gobble.
This is a chocolate cupcake topped with orange, yellow, and brown vanilla butter cream and edible glitter, with two sugar candy eyes. The cupcake is then filled with a hazelnut ganache, marshmallows, and walnuts. YUM! Last year, there was chocolate ganache and chocolate chips inside.
Okay, let’s talk about the elephant — uh, turkey in the room…this little dude looks so goofy! He looks like he’s either rolling his eyes or VERY startled, and it almost seems like there’s a worried expression on his face (which is understandable, considering we’re about eat him).
The actual cupcake, minus the icing, isn’t too sweet and the flavors are really nice together.
But, we do think they could’ve used some more fall flavors like pumpkin.
The icing is suuuuper sweet though! And it WILL stain your mouth red.
The different textures on the inside are really great in this cupcake. The crunch of the walnuts, softness of the marshmallows, and the gooey ganache all work well together!
If you’re allergic to nuts, do NOT get this one! And, be extra careful, because this cupcake didn’t have any info on it that said there were nuts inside. We actually didn’t know there were walnuts in the center until we cut into it.
If you don’t like things that are overly sweet, we wouldn’t recommend this guy. But, if you love chocolate and nuts and want some super cute pictures of this goofy looking turkey, go pick it up from the Polynesian!
You can get the cupcake right now until November 30th for $5.99. Stay tuned to DFB for more Disney food reviews and news.
