It’s hard to believe, but the month of October is almost halfway over! Seriously, where has the time gone?!?! A few weeks ago I devised a checklist of all of the Halloween Time sweets and treats I wanted to try this fall at the Disneyland Resort. I have been making pretty good headway, but I do still have a few items to squeeze in before the end of the month. Guess I am going to have to make some special trips to the park (aw shucks!). Today I want to focus on the goodies I have been able to try so far and give you some of my thoughts!
First is the maple creme brulee from Jolly Holiday at Disneyland. This is one of my favorite things I have eaten at Disneyland ever. I am a big fan of anything maple flavored, and you can’t really go wrong with creme brulee. I would eat this all the time if it became a regular fixture at the park.
The caramel apple smoothie from Schmoozies at California Adventure was also super tasty. Even though this is a fall flavor, given that it is a frozen smoothie, it is great for a So Cal “fall” day (aka when it’s still 80 degrees in October).
This sweet treat wasn’t on my original list, but I couldn’t pass up a poison apple cake pop. It was yummy, but I really wanted it for the cuteness factor.
This is the pumpkin twist, which is available at Maurice’s Treats at Disneyland or at Cozy Cone at DCA. This one was just okay. I liked that it had a good dash of cinnamon to complement the pumpkin, but it would have been better if it were served heated.
You can’t go wrong with just about anything at Carthay Circle, and that certainly goes for the poison appletini. I actually had one of these last year so it was kind of cheating putting it on my list again, but I will drink one of these bad boys every Halloween if I can. It’s super tasty, and you get to keep the awesome poison apple ice cube!
This is the spider parfait from Pizza Port at Disneyland. It’s got a layer of chocolate, then a layer of orange, then a layer of chocolate. The orange is a little fake tasting, but the chocolate is really yummy. I don’t know that I love the combo, but it’s an okay dessert.
The supernova pizza special from Pizza Port turned out to be a pleasant surprise. I had no idea what was on the seasonal pizza until I saw it, and honestly even then I wasn’t totally sure what it was all about. This pizza has a garlicky sauce, Canadian bacon, a ranch type drizzle, and fried pickles. Yeah, you read that right, fried pickles. Fried pickles are one of my all-time favorite foods. You put them on pizza, and I am a happy camper. I wasn’t expecting this to be as good as it was, and I would definitely eat this again.
I am hoping it starts to get a little cooler during the next two weeks so that I am actually in the mood to try all the soups on the list. Have you eaten anything tasty at Disneyland or Disney World this fall season? What would you most like to try?
