I have a confession. Until this past week, I had never actually eaten my very own sweet cream cheese pretzel in Walt Disney World. So when my husband and I decided to throw caution to the wind and head into the Magic Kingdom at 11pm on a Saturday during Spring Break, we figured it was high time to make a change.
After riding everything we possibly could, we headed over to the Lunching Pad and purchased one of these yummy treats. They look like regular soft pretzels, but they have a faint dusting of what seems like crushed pie crust, but is probably some sort of sugary breadcrumb.
This nondescript coating sets the stage for the pretzel in a way, because while it has a tinge of sweetness, it isn’t at all overly sugary. The same can be said for the filling of the pretzel. It’s definitely not a cream cheese frosting kind of filling. It’s more of a slightly sweetened cream cheese. Like, take cream cheese frosting and add another 16 ounces of cream cheese into it. It’s tangy, with the consistency of straight cream cheese…just a subtle sweetness added to it.
Personally, I’m not a huge fan of cream cheese, but I liked this just fine. It took a few bites to get used to it, but then it became downright addictive!
Just what I need…another MUST EAT snack on my list… 😉
