Top 5 Tuesday

Today’s Top 5 is of the snack variety. We’re taking a look at the top snacks around WDW. I’m going to go out on a limb and predict that no one will guess the #1 choice;

5: Kaki-Gori (Japan Pavilion)

This is one that is especially great on a hot day in Epcot. Fruit flavored syrup poured over shaved ice, simple but delicious. Some people claim that this is nothing more than a snow-cone, and they may be right, but it’s delicious either way.

4: Mickey Shaped Ice Cream Bar

I often wonder if I enjoy this desert more for the iconic shape than the actual taste, but I can’t decide.  My daughter can’t get enough of these, so they’re making the list. Simply hard-coated-chocolate over vanilla ice cream, it’s tough to go wrong with one of these.

3: Churros (Mexican Pavilion)

I know they serve these other places around WDW, but the Mexican pavilion version is huge, and terrific. I’m not sure what the ingredients are for this arm-long snack, but I know they put a lot of sugar on it, and that has made all the difference. A must have at Epcot.

2: Pretzels (Germany)

Another treat offered many places around the World, I’m singling the Germany version out as the best. I’m not sure if they make them differently in Germany, but they always seem softer and doughier here. More than likely my preference is due to the fact that I always pair this dessert with a large beer from Germany.  Unbeatable combination.

1: Dole Whip

I’m guessing everyone saw this coming… Not sure what else needs to be said about Dole Whips that hasn’t been said a hundred time over on the boards, but this is easily my #1. I prefer the Polynesian version over Aloha Isle, but that’s just splitting hairs. A perfect treat for a warm summer day, or a cool fall day, or a frigid winter day.

One thought to “Top 5 Tuesday”

  1. My stomach just started growling… I need to go find something to snack on, although I know I’ll be disappointed compared to what is on this list.

    The BEST churros are the free ones after Monsters Inc. I just wish someone would actually hold up to their end of the deal and buy them.
