Here you can get some wonderful homemade marshmallows, including ones with unique flavors that might quite likely blow your mind? Beer Marshmallows — yep! Birthday Cake Marshmallows — you bet! In fact, we’ve even had Churro Marshmallows here! CHURRO!
The kiosk serves up a TON of Wondermade’s unique marshmallow flavors, including Key Lime Pie, Bourbon, and more! So, today we grabbed a whole bunch of fluffy marshmallow creations and gave them a taste, including some BEER(!) Marshmallows. And we’re bringing you ALL our thoughts!
If you’re strolling through The Landing of Disney Springs, keep your eyes peeled for a new addition!
Disney Springs has announced (through @disneysprings on Instagram) that Wondermade has opened a pop-up shop featuring hand-crafted flavored MARSHMALLOWS! And they’ve given a little glimpse at what’s in store… [Read more…]
There’s a new place to grab some grub at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground.
And it might be the single coolest thing we’ve seen at Disney World in quite some time… Welcome to the Chuck Wagon!
This new food truck is serving up Counter Service-style eats on its Fresh Fixin’s menu to all the Happy Campers at Fort Wilderness from 11:00 AM – 9:00 PM Saturdays through Mondays, and from 5:00 – 9:00 PM Tuesdays through Fridays. This here’s also the spot where you can grab some classic camping snacks (S’mores!). Oh, and some of those Fort Wilderness Moonshine Cocktails, too!
But to load up on some of these treats, you gotta know where to find ’em first. So join us on our jaunt to visit the Chuck Wagon! Though you may be surprised to learn it’s not actually a wagon at all.
So then, what is it?
Custom-made to blend in perfectly with its campground surroundings, the Chuck Wagon Fresh Fixin’s Food Truck is designed to look exactly like an old school RV. Get a load of this!
And when I say old school, I mean it, as evidenced by the original Walt Disney World logos you’ll spot on the outside! [Read more…]
There are several stops around both Disney World and Disneyland with bakery cases that are full-to-overflowing with eye-catching goodies. In Disney World, these spots include Magic Kingdom’s Main Street Confectionery, Prairie Outpost and Supply, and Big Top Treats; Hollywood Studios’ Sweet Spells; and Downtown Disney’s Goofy’s Candy Company and the Candy Cauldron.
In Disneyland, they include Marceline’s Confectionery, Pooh Corner, Trolley Treats, and the Candy Palace.
A snack often found in these cases is the Marshmallow Wand. And we mention them on DFB fairly often because they change with the seasons.
Their decorative colors, sprinkles, and designs are one of the first things to signify some sort of celebration. We’ve seen them dressed up for the Winter Holidays…
… and Halloween!
They’ve been decorated with conversation hearts for Valentine’s Day.
And they take part in the Wearing O’ the Green on St. Patrick’s Day!
Recently, they even received a blue makeover to honor the Blu-Ray and DVD release of the Disney movie, “Frozen.”
(Though, we’re sorry, Marshmallow Wands, but this little guy sorta stole your thunder…)
All that said, you know something? We’ve never [Read more…]
When you’re looking for a tasty treat (which, of course, you ARE on Mardi Gras), a must stop shop on Disney California Adventure’s Buena Vista Street is Trolley Treats.
The aroma of the candy kitchen entices you as you pass the picture window where you’ll often see candy makers creating one of their signature Trolley Treats items: The Gourmet Marshmallow.
Sold either individually for $3.49 from the counter, or in packs of two for $5.95 from the store’s display, the hand made fluffy squares are available in several different flavors.
The flavors I went with were Banana Split, S’mores, Luscious Lemon, and Peanut Butter Chocolate Madness. I have to say all of them were great, but it was a serious sugar overload.
Normally I’d say just get an individual one and share it with someone, but hey, I was “working.” Let’s take a look at them all:
Banana Split Gourmet Marshmallow
First up, let’s go with the Banana Split. Topped with a cherry, this fun marshmallow is adorable and delicious. In fact, I think I’d call it my favorite. I love banana flavored items though, so this was right up my alley.
The banana flavor reminded me a bit of banana flavored Laffy Taffy — sort of artificial, but the added chocolate drizzle, caramel & cherry on top made it the perfect combination to impersonate a mini banana split.
I love watching the candy makers in action and happened to get some [Read more…]
It’s been quite some time since I’d been over to the Big Thunder Ranch BBQ. My rib-loving son had been begging to go over there for some time, so it worked out that we were able to squeeze in a lunch date with a friend about a month ago.
The menu is basically the same, minus the BBQ sausage in the meat bucket; but there are some new dessert options that I was not familiar with. Hello S’mores Bake!
Warm chocolate brownie topped with roasted marshmallows, graham crackers and hot fudge? Seriously? No twisting my arm necessary for this one and it wasn’t hard to get my kid and my friend Katherine on board either.
The only downfall is that this dessert takes at least 20 minutes to prepare, so just go ahead and order it when you sit down. That way it will be ready for you before your feast begins to settle and you get too full to eat dessert.
You wouldn’t want that to happen because this situation is worth eating yourself sick for…
The S’mores bake is served up in a HOT skillet. The brownie underneath is moist and gooey, the marshmallows are perfectly caramelized, the graham crackers are crunchy, and the hot fudge is [Read more…]
With a few weeks left of the Disney Holiday Season, you still have plenty of time to head on over to the Disneyland Resort to taste some of the special holiday offerings. Read about some of the fun eats and events happening this year on our 2012 Disneyland Holiday page, and check out even more below…
And even if you aren’t a candy cane or egg nog fan, it’s worth a trip just to see the decor. I mean come on, look at this:
I recently visited Disney’s California Adventure to get a sampling of all the yumminess the resort has to offer this season — and let me tell you, there are some pretty tasty treats.
Both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure are carrying a line of holiday caramel apples. Choose from a festive Mickey or Minnie, or go for the cute snowman complete with chocolate Mickey ears and a sour belt scarf!
Both parks are also carrying a variety of Christmas Cupcakes, including this chocolate peppermint one! The frosting is whipped and infused with peppermint flavor.
It was by far my most favorite part of the cupcake. Warning though: with that bright green and red frosting, your tongue stands no chance against staining…
Traditional chocolate cake cupcakes with red & white vanilla frosting topped [Read more…]
After months of being boarded up earlier this year, the walls came down around Disneyland’s iconic candy shop in May. Let’s take a look at the newly remodeled Candy Palace!
The new Candy Palace was carefully designed so that everything looks “edible.” From the gorgeous chandeliers to the tiled floors and even the Exit sign, the interior does look yummy!
From the front, the store looks very much the same. The Candy Kitchen window remains to the right of the main entrance with the Penny Arcade to the [Read more…]
June 15th is right around the corner and two of the places I can’t wait to get to are Trolly Treats & Clarabelle’s Ice Cream, both located on Disney California Adventure’s new Buena Vista Street.
We got the chance to sample some goodies from these spots, and I can’t wait to share them with you.
Clarabelle’s Ice Cream
Clarabelle’s Ice Cream will be serving up some old fashioned frozen favorites as well as some treats with some interesting toppings!
The “story” behind Clarabelle’s is that it was inspired by an ice cream shop that young Walt might have visited in the early 1920’s. “Clarabelle Cowherd” ran her bovine inspired ice cream shop where she used farm fresh dairy products and old fashioned churns to make her flavorful hand scooped ice creams. Decorated in full “cow” theme, this may have been what “Moo-ved” Walt to create the humorous Clarabelle Cow. 😉
Clarabelle’s will serve hand scooped ice cream as well as a new to the resort item; chocolate or vanilla bean hand dipped ice cream bars with various topping choices that include sprinkles, chocolate pearls, nuts, and drum roll please…. POP ROCKS!
Clarabelle’s will also serve specialty sundaes like this adorable two scooper served in a Red Trolley cup.
All ice cream products at Clarabelle’s will be Dreyer’s. And while I understand that this is a company that Disney contracts with, I do wish that [Read more…]
