Recently, we got to try a slice of pumpkin pie made out of rice krispies (!!) and a spooky sugar cookie from this spot. But, there were too many treats available to choose just two — so we had to have one more (and, it was another pumpkin spiced flavored snack)!
Due to the global health crisis, so many of us just can’t make it to Walt Disney World this year. And that makes us sad because we’d love to chow down on some of our favorite treats, including Cheshire Cat Tails, Mickey macarons, and Mickey caramel apples (YUM).
We have such a massive craving for so many of these goodies, but if we can’t get to Walt Disney World, that often means we just have to go without. 😢 Whatever will we do?
In the meantime, we found some ADORABLE new snack-inspired apparel on shopDisney for girls! Don’t mind us while we’re over here totally JEALOUS of all the kiddos that get to rock these super cute shirts.
If you are planning a trip to Disney World this holiday season, or if you just want to add to your festive wardrobe, there’s a NEW spirit jersey that you may wanna check out!
Visions of sugarplums may or may not dance in your head when you adorn this scrumptious snack-themed spirit jersey this holiday season.
I’m sure it will come as no surprise when I say that the first stop I make during every visit to the Magic Kingdom is the Main Street Confectionery. Just a whiff of the sweet smell inside lets me know that all is well in the universe.
One of my favorite pastimes is watching the cast members in the glass-walled kitchen create the specialties of the house: fudge, cake pops, chocolate-covered pretzels, candy apples, or Mickey-shaped krispie treats. I consider myself a bit of krispie artist, so the creation of these particular treats holds a special fascination for me.
I’ve stopped to watch the giant krispie Mickeys being made dozens of times. I love how they use the exact same Kellogg’s Rice Krispies and Jet-Puffed marshmallows that I use at home. And I’ve loved seeing those well-worn metal molds and wondering how many thousands of Mickeys have emerged from each one.
You can imagine my dismay when I made my usual Confectionery stop during a trip this past fall and saw — instead of the solid, practical metal Mickey pan being used to form krispie treats — a floppy red silicone pan. Quelle horreur!
Not long after I noticed the switch at the Confectionery, I started seeing the red pan for sale in the [Read more…]
The DFB Mini-Guide to Magic Kingdom Snacks e-Book is packed with salty, savory and sweet munchies that make a day at the Magic Kingdom even more memorable! You know how much I love food-inspired crawls, so today I’d like to share with you the details of the I Heart Mickey Snack Crawl we developed for our Magic Kingdom Snacks guidebook.
I can’t promise that you’ll run into Mickey Mouse during this icon-enriched tour, yet you can honor our favorite mouse by feasting on these Mickey-shaped treats in the Magic Kingdom!
Here we go…
Travel to your starting point — Sleepy Hollow in Liberty Square — to enjoy the ever popular Mickey Waffle. We’re going for the plate-sized Mickey waffle, here; and this is one of the only places in the World you can get them!
Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar
Let’s face it: sometimes it’s just nice to bring a little bit of Disney home with you to help you get over those post-Disney blues! And if you have a handful of Disney Dining Plan snack credits left over at the end of your Disney World trip or you’ve got friends and family you’d like to surprise with a treat, Disney foods make some terrific souvenirs!
Here are my top five favorite snacks to bring home from the parks!
Caramel Corn from Epcot’s Karamell Küche
This delicious snack is downright heavenly. Ever since Karamell Küche opened in the Fall of 2010, it’s been a must-stop location for me every time I’m in Epcot — even if my only reason for being there is to smell the gorgeous smells coming from those candy kitchens!
Second only to my family’s love of Disney food is our love of Disney Vinylmation. These collectible figurines all start with the same Mickey-shaped base, but are designed by artists to resemble other characters, park elements, cultural touchstones, or random cool designs. My daughters and I have spent many a happy hour in the parks hunting for and trading Vinylmations. Some of our favorite finds have been food-themed Vinyls.
We’ve been impressed with the execution of classic Disney-food items in Vinyl: the Mickey bar, the turkey leg, the box of popcorn. One day while speculating about which delicious icon might be Vinylized next, my daughter Josie came up with the idea that Disney should make a Rice Krispie treat themed Vinylmation — a plastic depiction of the [Read more…]
One of everyone’s favorite easy-to-make and easy-to-enjoy snacks is the Rice Krispie Treat. Clearly Disney understands this phenomenon and has capitalized on it. These days, Disney’s customized “crisped rice treats” seem to have become as ubiquitous as any other classic Disney parks treat.
So, being the Disney Food Blog, I was just waiting until I had enough pics to really do them justice. What’s incredible is the sheer variety of things Disney has done with these little snap-crackle-pop puffed rice pieces! “Crisped Rice” + Marshmallow + Butter + Imagineers = big bucks, I’d imagine!
Experience the Magic
I’d like to share with you some of my favorite “crisped rice treats” in the Disney parks, but first of all, here’s a little tip: Did you know that you can watch Disney’s Confectioners create these goodies? You can! Just head to the Main Street Confectionery in Disney World, where the talented Cast Members are always whipping up something special. Sometimes you’ll see them making caramel apples or fudge, but they’re often churning up some of your favorite light-as-air crispie treats as well!
Now I get to share some of my favorites! Here are some [Read more…]
