Disney Snacks: Now, before I get started into this list, let me explain two things. Number one: These views are mine. Just because something makes it onto this list, does not mean that this is a representation of Disney Dream Co. as a whole (I wanted to put that out there because I don’t want you to send hate mail to my Disney Dream Co. Family, all hate mail can be directed to me, thanks!). Number 2: I LOVE food! Like, I am the biggest food lover I know. I went to culinary school for a year just because I love to eat. I have ran 2 half marathons just to burn tons of calories, just so I can eat more pizza. Food love is real for me. So real, that I have written about My Top Favorite Mickey Shaped Snacks, How to make Mickey Waffles, and a review of Be Our Guest. And there are more food posts to come. All that to say, some of these snack items pains me to add here, but I just have to do it. Without any further ado… here is my list of Most Overrated Disney Snacks.
1. Dole Whips
#sorrynotsorry on this one! I just don’t get it. I feel like this is a Disney snack that everyone loves just because they feel like they wouldn’t be a ‘true Disney fan’ if they didn’t. But I’m here to tell you all… it’s okay not to like it! To me, its feels like I am just eating a cold pineapple. Nothing great. Not that special.
2. Lunch Box Tarts
You can find these items over at Woody’s Lunch Box in Hollywood Studios. I had high hopes for these, especially the Chocolate Hazelnut one! To me, it just tasted like a regular ol’ Poptart. Again, not terrible, but not great. The Chocolate Hazelnut Tart comes with Maple Frosting and Candied Bacon on it. Doesn’t that combo sound amazing? Sadly, it disappointed me when I tried it for the first time. And I probably won’t get it again.
Please don’t send the pitchforks after me on this one! But this is another one I don’t completely understand. You can get a Churro at almost any other amusement park around the world. I just don’t see the love and the hype over the Disney World ones. They taste like typical Churros to me. Again, I don’t think they taste bad, I just think that they are overrated, and I much rather use my snack credit on something else.
Honestly, I have no idea why people go crazy for this thing when Epcot host it’s Flower and Garden Festival every year. Its something I constantly hear about when that time of year comes around. If you don’t know what it is, its a sushi-inspired food is made with pineapple, strawberry, and melon. The fruits are rolled with raspberry coconut rice and topped with toasted coconut. It’s served with a side of whipped cream. Again, not bad tasting, but I think highly overrated.
5. Mickey/ Minnie Chocolate or Caramel Covered Apple
This one pains me to put on the list because they are soo cute! I LOVE almost everything Mickey and Minnie Shaped, but this one misses the mark. First of all, I don’t think they are that tasty. Second, they are so hard to eat while walking around the parks! Believe me, I have tried. And have failed… miserably.
