Hellooooo! today I am going to focus on the more unusual and less-known but still very tasty sweets that can be found all over The World. I am going to focus on Epcot today. There’s something (or five somethings) that are sure to please your sweet tooth. There are soooo many I could talk about, but these puppies are most worthy of a place on the top ten list.
Snacking around the world is a fun adventure, sure to leave you with a full belly, an empty wallet, and major sugar shock if you do it right! But, if you bring a few partners a long, you can get a taste from each country, and split the cost so you don’t break the bank, or have the need to suddenly crash on a bench. But, also keep in mind that all of the treats I talk about today are snack credits if you are using the Disney Dining Plan.
At Le Cellier in the Canada Pavilion, you can get the Chocolate Moose. Mousse is a fairly common dessert, but what makes this one special is the homage to this representative of Canadian wildlife. With sugar cookie maple leaf ears, this dessert is sure to wake the kid in you. It’s on the kids menu, but of course us big kids can order it too.
Going back to my husband’s obsession with creme brulee, Canada has one that is heads above the rest. Custardy goodness under a sugary shell, it’s special because it’s maple flavored.
If you like green tea, you’re sure to enjoy the Matcha Roll, a green tea swirl cake, at the Katsura Grill in the Japan Pavillion.
At The Fife & Drum in the America Pavilion, you can get The American Dream. It’s a layered “parfait” of strawberry slush, blue raspberry slush, and vanilla ice cream. I’ve never met a kid who didn’t love a blue tongue, and this sweet treat is sure to quench your thirst on a hot Florida summer day.
At Via Napoli in the Italy Pavilion you can get the Zeppole di Caterina. They are ricotta cheese fritters, served with whipped cream and chocolate sauce. In Italy, there is no shortage of “street” food. These little donuts are sold in open air markets all over Italy. They are most often found fried and then rolled in cinnamon and sugar.
The Disney veterans would be mad at me if I didn’t mention the School Bread in Norway! Found at the Kringla Bakeri og Cafe, this yummy sweet treat is massive, and a great value for a snack credit.
You can get churros pretty much anywhere. It’s a fairly common dessert, and can actually be found many places at Disney World. But what makes the Churritos at the Cantina de San Angel outside the Mexico Pavilion so special is that it comes with a milk caramel dipping sauce. My son Matthew is in love with them, and they are on his must do list for every visit at Epcot.
While the Coral Reef Restaurant is not located in World Showcase, I have to mention it because it has one of my favorite Disney World desserts. Locate in Future World next to the Seas With Nemo & Friends, Coral Reef is such a special place to dine because it contains a floor to ceiling view of the marine life in the pavilion. Kids love it here. And if you are lucky enough to have a meal next to the tank, you will be dining with sharks, sea turtles, sting rays, and many more sea creatures. And, it makes for a great distraction for kids while waiting for the next course to come out. Coral Reef has a dessert call The Chocolate Wave. While it has a seemingly common appearance, this baby is a chocolate lover’s dream. A warm, rich chocolate cake, often accompanied by raspberry sauce, it often comes with raspberry gelato as well. YUMMY!!!
That will wrap up the Amazing Disney Adventure. Thanks so much for joining me!
And, until next time, remember…
Life is uncertain, so eat dessert first!
