Epcot is, in this self-proclaimed Disney foodie’s opinion, home to the best food of any Disney park. Every time that we go to Disney, I can very easily get caught up in going to my old standby’s so I have made it a point to list, on the itinerary that I’ve done for our upcoming trip, new items that I want to make sure we try instead of just getting the stuff we usually get. And that is what we are going to talk about today!
Disclaimer, we are eating our meals at Rose and Crown and Restaurant Marrakesh where, if you read my post about Candlelight Processional and previous Epcot trips, we have eaten here before and I will most likely get the Fish and Chips at Rose and Crown because…duh. BUT, my snack choices will be all new things to me that I am really excited to try!
First things first! Choza de Margarita is opening! I do not know and am not holding my breath that it will be open when we are there but it is supposed to open this year. If it is open, you can bet I will be trying the Passion Mango Frozen Margarita that is being offered there. Disney Parks blog posted on November 1 that “Construction walls will be coming down shortly at the Mexico Pavilion at Epcot World Showcase as the new Choza de Margarita nears completion, a cool new walk-up window for authentic Mexican beverages and street fare.” They did not offer a date for when it would open but for a tiny kiosk, construction has been ongoing to a very long time!
Moving farther into World Showcase, are going to make a stop at Kringla Bakeri Og Cafe in Norway. This is a controversial snack purchase; it’s a love it or hate it from everything I hear. The Schoolbread! It really is a simple dish and I think that it is the cardamom flavor that gets people. It’s not an American flavor but we are going to give it a try! So what is it? The Schoolbread is a simple sweet roll, filled with a vanilla custard a sweet vanilla icing and toasted coconut. The cardamom is in the actual roll itself. If you haven’t tried it, I suggest it, because it is a traditional Norwegian treat and if you have tried it, I would love to know what you think!
We’re going to go to Japan next. This treat is actually one of my absolute favorite desserts on the planet. There is a sushi restaurant here in Colorado that serves this and I love it and would skip the sushi and just get this! I have never had it at the Japan kiosk but I am excited to try it and let you know what I think of this version! Kakigori! Another simple treat, shaved ice flavored with your choice of sweet syrup. You can choose from rainbow, melon, cherry, watermelon or tangerine. For $1.00 you can add the sweetened condensed milk and this makes it. This makes this dessert so unbelievably good. I am so excited to give this a try!
France is next and I want a smorgasboard of things here. Luckily, my husband and I like to eat. We want to try the bacon, cheddar roll. A cinnamon roll looking bread (with no cinnamon) this savory bread is fully of cheddar cheese and bacon. A savory treat! I know I always fill my suggestions with sweet treats but here is your savory option! I also want to get the frangipane. I’ve had this before but it was a long time ago and I love frangipane. This is a buttery, flaky pastry filled with a sugary almond filling. Both of these selections can be found at Les Halles. The other thing I want to try in France is at the Kiosk, the Grand Marnier Orange Slush.
Our last stop for snacks I want to try in Epcot is Italy. Here, I want to give the Cannoli Cupcake a try. This is actually not a cupcake and we have featured this in a previous post. It is in a cup and is more of a deconstructed cupcake. Cake on the bottom, topped with a ricotta pastry cream and then bits of fruit on top. On top top of that is a mini cannoli! I cannot wait to give this a try!
So, there you have it! Those are my must try’s for the next trip to Disney! Our trip is so soon so stay tuned for the follow up post to this…what I actually thought of these treats! Do you have some treats that you can’t wait to try in Epcot? I’d love to hear what you love, what you don’t love and what you want to try!
Thank you for stopping by and for the love of the mouse, never forget, that it all started with a mouse!
