Today I’ve got some new eats for you from the Magic Kingdom in Disney World!
There are few snacks that are more perfect for warm Florida weather than Frozen Treats! You’d think this would be a fairly limited food genre. An Ice Cream Sundae here, a Pina Colada Slush there. But there’s so much variety that it’s dizzying! You never have to have the same thing twice — if you don’t want to.
But what if you’re looking for something a little…different?
Well, today’s your lucky day. Because we have not one, but TWO new-to-us Magic Kingdom Snack Options to share with you. And they’re both delightfully frosty, perfect for refreshing you after a long day of chasing Fast Passes and Parades.
Wanna see? I know you do. 🙂
Frozen Yogurt at Storybook Treats
Looking to answer the call of your Fro Yo craving, then head to Storybook Treats in Fantasyland.
This tiny spot has been one of my favorite dessert stops for a while, because it offers unique snacks, like Fudge Brownie and Strawberry Shortcake Sundaes.
But on occasion, you’ll also find some interesting Frozen Yogurt flavors. And that’s what I was after on a recent visit here.
I hit the “out of the ordinary” jackpot when I spied two cool flavors — Birthday Cake and Cherry! Of course, these just demanded that I get them swirled together. That’s what you’d do too, right??
Since this is Fro Yo and not Ice Cream, it had that predictable tang that you’d expect. I enjoyed both flavors, and the combo was great as well, but I’d give the slight edge to the Birthday Cake.
Because Birthday Cake.
Mango Fruit Bar at Magic Kingdom
Next, we’re stopping by Maurice’s Popcorn Cart in New Fantasyland. I don’t know if that’s what it’s called. But that’s what I’m callin’ it. 🙂
Maurice’s features some of the standard, pre-packaged Frozen Treats that we all love — Mickey Ice Cream Bars and Sandwiches, Frozen Chocolate-Dipped Bananas, that adorable Olaf Frozen Lemonade Strawberry Bar (oh, are you STILL here, Olaf?), and the Plain Ole’ Strawberry Bar (seriously refreshing and pretty healthy as such things go.)
But I also spied something I hadn’t seen before — the Mango Fruit Bar. Here’s the interesting thing, though. It’s not a fruit bar like you think of a fruit bar. One look told me this one wasn’t just fruit, but Ice Cream too.
And if the word “Helado” on the front (oh, and the words “Ice Cream”) doesn’t confirm it for you, the ingredients, which include Cream and Egg Yolk, will.
Out of the wrapper, you can see that this isn’t just extremely lightly colored; there’s a little pool of mango at the bottom. I’m not sure if that was intended in the design, but it isn’t off-putting.
But biting into the top, I got…a whole lot of creaminess. I really was expecting something more along the lines of the Strawberry Bar, or the Paletas (well, minus the super spicy or sour notes) that you get at La Cantina de San Angel in Epcot.
It wasn’t unpleasant, just not at all what I expected. So plan accordingly if you’d rather experience a non-dairy treat in the hot, hot sun.
