Candy Sushi class is a fun “extra” experience that takes place during the Food and Wine Festival at Epcot.
This extra event has a cost of $10. You can sign up the whole family , or in our case we just signed up out two kids. I’m sure they will be happy to share their candy … right?
You can looks for reservations here. It is a pretty popular event so check it out soon if you want to snag a spot. The class is located in the land pavilion right in between Sunshine Seasons and Living with the land on the first floor.
Each participant is equipped with a cute chef hat, a sushi mat called a makisu ( mak-e-sue) and enough candy to give you a belly ache. You are also provided with three recipe cards. My husband and I were nicely given chairs to sit behind our kiddos as they worked on their candy sushi masterpieces.
The kids were given enough candy/supplies to make two rolls. The Dynamite Twix Roll and the Candy ForYa Roll. We did not make the Taste the Rainbow Roll. I think last year the event was sponsored by Skittles and was no charge. This year skittles were not part of our candy choices. I’ll let you work out what may have happened.
The Master Chef walks you through how to make each roll and is available to help if needed. She had an assistant who was making the rolls and walking around demonstrating what they should look like in real time.
The base of the rolls was rice Krispy treat sheets. The fish on the sushi is Swedish fish. It literally could not have been a more cute experience. Now, before you think this is just for kids we also saw some adults without kids participating.
The whole class took approximately 30 minutes. I think we ended up with at least $10 of treats. The cast members wrapped up our sushi “boats” with plastic wrap and we were able to take them with us. Unless you can toss back candy like a professional I would think you will need to take some to go!
Our tiny chefs gave this experience two thumbs up. Please let us know if you have experienced Candy Sushi. For another fun extra in the Land Pavillion check out our post on the Behind the Seeds Tour.
