Though guests from all over the world come to Walt Disney World to experience its world class attractions, many guests often find Walt Disney World’s food offerings to be a surprising highlight of their visit.
Like everything else at Walt Disney World, food offerings and menus are constantly changing and being updated with new and exciting options. Here are six new items you can now sample at the parks. But be aware, some of these items are available for a limited time, so if you want to check out all of these new tastes, you’ll have to act fast!
1. Sweet Potato Puffs – Fantasy Faire (Downtown Disney)
At first glance these tasty little nuggets might just look like a sweet potato version of tater tots, but in reality nothing could be further from the truth! These dense sweet potato puffs are lightly fried until they're crispy but not crunchy and have a lovely marshmallow sauce drizzled over them, making them a delectable sweet treat that's also quite filling. Throw in a light dusting of crushed pecans to the mix, and you've got a real winner. Though you'll have to head all the way out to the Downtown Disney Food Truck Park to sample this treat, the excursion is well worth it, as this is a sublime little snack.
2. Lemon with Crispy Meringue Ice Cream –L’Artisan des Glaces (Epcot)
It's no secret that L'Artisan des Glaces has some amazing treats. We've reviewed several of their ice cream macarons before, but this month we sampled an all-new ice cream flavor: lemon with crispy meringue! This smooth yet tart lemon ice cream is far richer than lemon sorbet, and little bits of meringue mixed in give it a texture that is unique among the various offerings at L'Artisan des Glaces. We cannot recommend this new flavor highly enough, especially for those wanting to enjoy a light and cool treat on a hot day.
3. Warm peanut butter brownie – Sunshine Seasons (Epcot)
Though the first two entires on our culinary trip this month were winners, we hit a bit of a snag at Sunshine Seasons with this month's "Seasonal Treat", the warm peanut butter brownie. Essentially, this brownie tastes like it was made from a box, and is served barely warmed with some peanut butter sauce hastily drizzled on top. Considering this item costs nearly $5, it seems like a bit of a waste, especially when there are a wealth of much better sweet treat options available as part of the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival. Though this treat certainly appeals to serious chocoholics (present company included!) it simply isn't all that good, and definitely isn't worth making a special trip for.
