When those post-Disney Parks blues kick in, there are lots of ways to fill the void. Some of us read trip reports, others ghost plan future trips (don’t say we’re the only ones who do this…), and still others pore over their vacation photos and videos. All of these efforts to reclaim the magic are valid, but there’s one way in particular that DFB recommends: eating. But not just any old snacks! We’re talking Disney Parks food favorites you can find at home!
That’s no Mickey Bar, that’s a Mickey Krispy! Your eyes aren’t deceiving you — Magic Kingdom just gave us the ultimate snack mash up…
A classic Mickey Krispy that looks just like a Mickey Bar, melting ice cream included.
We’ve already been celebrating Mickey a lot today (which is a good idea ANY day) with the new Mickey Balloon Popcorn Bucket in Magic Kingdom. But today brings another way to celebrate our favorite mouse… this time, with Amorette’s Patisserie in Disney Springs!
You can now place an order by phone (find the information at the end of this post) for the new Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar Cake. Fillings include chocolate chiffon, milk chocolate mousse, and even ice cream vanilla mousse. [Read more…]
The DFB team has been so excited about the Mickey Bars in local grocery stores ever since word dropped that we’d all get to have the Disney Parks’ iconic frozen treat at home!!! We finally found them in a Publix in Tampa, Florida, and of course, we had to review the Mickey Bars for you right away.
But our DFB readers are THE BEST, and we’ve heard from a lot of you (from Georgia to Missouri to California!) with tips on where you’ve found the Mickey Bars in your local grocery stores. So we’re gathering your tips and safeguarding them here! [Read more…]
Just last week we let you know your snack life is about to change: Mickey Premium Bars are coming to grocery stores for a limited time to celebrate Mickey’s 90th birthday!
Well the bars are starting to show up in grocery stores, and now we have a few more details to share! According to the Miami Herald, Mickey Premium Bars “will be sold at most major grocery stores“, and Publix‘s spokesperson confirmed they will be carrying the frozen treat!
Who wouldn’t want to have one of THESE…
… at HOME?!
With thanks to Love the Mouse Travel on Facebook who published this photo on facebook last night (so we had Mickey Bar dreams all night ;-D), we are sharing that Nestle will soon be bringing Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bars to select grocers across the country in celebration of Mickey’s 90th Anniversary!

As part of Mickey Mouse’s 90th Birthday celebration, you can snap a fun picture in front of this adorable new Tomorrowland wall and support the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Read on to find out how!
If you’re of the opinion that dunking something in chocolate makes everything better, I’ve got a few snacks that you really need to sample!
Here are my top five chocolate-covered snacks in Disney World and Disneyland (not necessarily in order of beloved-ness ;-)). And I can’t wait to hear yours (mostly because then I get to go find them and chomp them)!
Chocolate-Covered Sea Salt Caramel
I found this treat on one of my many Karamell-Küche visits in Epcot’s Germany! One of several chocolate-y and caramel-y treats, it’s got the benefit of three distinct tastes and textures.
The chewy, super-sweet caramel is the central feature and taste, and it’s complemented by that creamy milk or dark chocolate (the dark chocolate will give a slight bitterness to the taste, which gives even more depth to the flavor!). The sea salt on the top gives a slight crunch and a solid kapow to your taste buds, making the sweet even sweeter! If you’ve been avoiding the salty-sweet trend that’s become so popular, this might be the best way to take your first step into that taste juxtaposition! You can always brush some of the salt off if you don’t like it. 🙂
Peanut Butter Sandwich
This gorgeous confection, which I simply refer to as the peanut butter sandwich, used to be sold at Disney Parks on both coasts, but lately we’ve only found it in Disneyland. (It IS in Disneyland, though…I promise!)
With peanut butter piled high on a graham cracker then enrobed in [Read more…]
More and more, we’re seeing iconic Disney food depicted as graphics, shapes, and patterns in Disney merchandise. You’ll remember the Mickey Bar-shaped antenna topper and the Mickey breakfast pajama pants, of course. And who can forget the Disney food playset and the Disney food magnets!
But walking through the lobby of the Grand Californian Friday night, I spotted what I think is quite possibly the coolest “food” merchandise I’ve ever come across. So cool that I have a strong feeling I will be back to buy it.
I love Disney Food. I love Disney travel. SO, why not combine the two for a super awesome, totally radical new Disney food suitcase? This beauty was calling my name from its pedestal in the lobby gift shop.
The fun snack food designs are what caught my eye first. I noticed the Mickey Bars, popcorn, lollipops, and cotton candy. Already I’m sold. THEN I saw that it was specific to Disneyland Resort and noticed the text that read Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. So fun.
But wait! There’s still more to notice. It took me a minute until I realized that the orange “shape” was actually the silhouette of Grizzly Peak over at DCA, and of course you can’t forget the purple Sleeping Beauty Castle. Another fun detail? The [Read more…]
