    Default Snacks-Treats DIG DEEP

    Here is a challenge for you.

    We are looking to try new and different treats/snacks on our trip in June.

    I am looking for things that are off the beaten path. It does not have to be on the dining plan. I know Dole Whip, Cream Cheese Filled Pretzels, hand dipped ice cream cookie sandwiches, caramel corn in Germany, Cinnamon Rolls at Gaston's.

    I am looking for things like what is your favorite/unusual cupcake and where? What your favorite treat from the Confectionery? The carrot cake cookie at Writers shoppe would be an example of a snack that not everyone knows about - less popular, but worth trying.

    My husband is on the path to try new and fun things (snacky) I just mentioned the cupcake b/c he mentioned a place on the Boardwalk that sells one that has a whole strawberry in the middle.

    It can be a resort treat or at Downtown Disney as well as the parks. It can be sweet or savory.

    It can be your favorite dessert from somewhere (We are going to Ghiradelli's for the first time - any recommendations, there?)

    Please, please help me. He has been asking me to make a list and I know there are things out there I am missing.

    Anyway, I am sure you get the idea.

    Ready???

    GO!!!

    Frenchtoast Cup Cake from Baby Cakes at DtD
    Best. Cupcake.Ever
    They are pricey, but worth it.I was skeptical because they are gluten free (at least I think that's what I read) and usually no gluten means no taste to me...
    I dream of these cupcakes...
    They are that good.

    See, this is exactly what I mean. I have never heard of that! It sounds wonderful.

    Thank you!

    Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel Square-Karamell Kuche

    Chocolate Chip Supreme Cookie-Main Street Confectionery

    Nutella/Strawberry/Banana Waffle Sandwich-Sleepy Hollow @ MK

    Egg Rolls-Lotus Blossom Cafe China Pavilion

    Butterfinger Cheesecake-Seasons Food Court Land Pavilion

    Cheesecake Brownie-Boardwalk Bakery

    My favorite thing from Ghirardelli is actually a milkshake. It's chocolate, called the Nob Hill or something like that. It's basically a hot fudge sundae you can drink! It's amazingly good!!!

    Red velvet cupcake with cream cheese icing. We got this at Disney Quest, but I think the exact cupcake is sold at Staring Roll at DHS. It was really, really good.

    Honestly, any of the chocolate or caramel items in Germany are to die for.

    Both the smores cupcake and the carrot cake cupcake at Wilderness Lodge were good.

    I tried this last trip as well, delicious!

    It's amazing how much having the DP helped us find so many different places to eat we never knew, or cared, existed.

    My favorite (assuming it's still there; haven't been in two years) is the frozen mocha at Writer's Stop at the Studios. I get a couple every trip and like to walk around with it, or sit in a shady place and people watch.

    On our last trip, which was in October, my sister's goal was to get as many pumpkin snacks as she could, as that's her favorite. She especially liked the pumpkin fudge at Goofy's in Downtown.

    Another goody are the make-your-own-treats at Goofy's.

    And I'm all for the chocolate mousse at the French bakery.

    Everyone talks about the Dole Whips, but there is another little treasure close by: the Citrus Swirl at the Sunshine Tree Terrace in MK. The orange part is real, frozen orange juice..it's tart and next to the vanilla ice cream, heavenly. I'll also cast a vote for the Nutella & Fruit Waffle...had one for the first time and can't wait to have one again in May!

    Another vote for Goofy's Candy at DTD. You can make your own caramel apples or dipped pretzels. But my favorite is the gingerbread cookie with chocolate Mickey-ears--yum!

    Thank you so much for your responses!

    Tygger7 - I had heard about the Citrus Swirl making a comeback but I have never tried it. So excited.

    On a side note, I told my husband that I had started this thread and he is so happy to have a "snack quest"!

    The only sweet treat I have tried at the French bakery is the Napoleon - last time we had it we were less impressed. I need to try the chocolate mousse!

    I heard that at the Boardwalk there is a kiosk that sells Fried Ice Cream. Can anyone confirm this? We love fried ice cream and I am surprised that I have never heard anyone mention it here which makes me think maybe it isn't good or isn't actually there.
