Sweets & Treats Evaluate: 2018 Epcot Holidays Competition

Sweets & Treats is our subsequent meals sales space on the 2018 Epcot Worldwide Competition of the Holidays, positioned in World Showcase Plaza. On this overview, we’ll share pictures of the snacks and desserts on the menu, and supply our meals opinions & tasting notes of this meals sales space.

Actually, Vacation Sweets & Treats is extra the placement for the completer cookie than it’s a standalone meals sales space. Accordingly, let’s begin with a dialogue of the Vacation Cookie Stroll.

It was not my thought to do that vacation cookie stroll. Others in our group have been actually into it, although. Somebody even advised shopping for a jar for them…I suppose to save lots of as a memento, or one thing? (I kindly suggested them that I didn’t assume cookies, even collectible Epcot ones, respect in worth.)

I’ve to confess that I felt barely vindicated, if not irritated, once we returned to the Vacation Sweets & Treats completer cookie window with our accomplished cookie stroll paperwork, all correctly so as, solely to search out that the completer cookie was additionally “offered out.” For these protecting rating at house, that’s the third cookie of the day that was offered out. (I suppose they weren’t making sufficient Publix runs to replenish the stash.)

Upon returning 15 minutes later, we have been awarded a Mickey Mouse formed sugar cookie and a bottle of milk. I suppose it was good to get one thing “free” from Walt Disney World, however the draw back is that we purchased a number of cookies that we might’ve simply as simply gotten on the grocery retailer for lots much less.

In equity, $2 per cookie shouldn’t be unhealthy by Walt Disney World requirements. The truth is, these would possibly simply be the most affordable meals objects you should purchase at Epcot. Then again, if you happen to’re paying a premium for meals within the parks, why not a minimum of go for one thing extra bold or distinctive?

As a substitute of viewing this as $2 particular person cookies, consider it as a set of 6 for $10. The cookies are all so small that it’s pointless to eat only one, anyway. On the $10 mark, there are numerous objects we’d advocate over this set of cookies. The poutine, fondue, cronuts, or pretzel all could be cheaper–and higher.

In case your youngsters are actually into scavenger hunts, we’d counsel doing Chip & Dale’s Christmas Tree Spree as an alternative. At $7 for a map, you’ll spend much less, have a extra satisfying expertise, and obtain a greater prize.

Anyway…right here’s what’s on the meals menu on the Sweets & Treats Vacation Kitchen for 2018:

Now our pictures and opinions of every merchandise…

Peppermint Sundae – I hoped for a bit extra right here, as that is merely chocolate gentle serve topped with common whipped cream and peppermint so finely grounded that it’s primarily powder. In case you introduced the peppermint sweet from house, that is the kind of factor you would get any day at Walt Disney World.

With that mentioned, I really like this. I’m a sucker for gentle serve. It’s my responsible pleasure. It could be tough to inform from the picture, however this was a reasonably beneficiant portion of ice cream, and the peppermint topping went surprisingly far in giving this a festive aptitude.

Vacation Tree Sugar Cookie – This was offered out the primary time we stopped right here, however I believe you possibly can summon the powers of your creativeness and paint an correct image of what a Christmas tree-shaped cookie seems like.

Right here’s the Sweets & Treats Vacation Kitchen drink menu:
