In my last post, I ranked the foods we ate at Disneyland, and this time, we get to the good stuff, the desserts. I’m going to rank some things we had in previous years (in italics), as well, but if you want to read my 2017 post and 2018 post, here they be. Now, without further ado…
6: Doom Buggy Sundae (Golden Horseshoe) – This limited-time dessert was only available during the Haunted Mansion Anniversary event, and there is…a lot going on. It’s apparently a…(pauses to read the description) sponge cake encased in funnel cake batter, dusted with chocolate, topped with white chocolate raspberry ice cream, strawberry sauce, and whipped cream. It was generally pretty good, aside from the fact that the strawberry sauce was far too overpowering, which is the reason it’s at the bottom of the list.
5: Whoopie Pie and Chocolate Mousse Brownie (Jolly Holiday Bakery Café) – You can get some tasty treats at the Jolly Holiday Bakery on Main Street, a place we visited during our very first trip. While their desserts are perfectly good, they’re not super exciting, so I don’t have too much to say….
4: Tigger Tail (Pooh Corner) – The Tigger Tail is a cute treat made of marshmallows, dipped in caramel, covered in orange sugar, and decorated with chocolate stripes. Adorable as it may be, it’s insanely sweet, so keep that in mind if you don’t enjoy cavity-inducing sugar overload.
3: Groom Churro (Churro Cart in Critter Country) – There were two special churros this year for the Haunted Mansion 50th Anniversary, a vanilla bride churro and a chocolate groom churro. We had the groom churro, which was as tasty as you might expect.
2: Grey Stuff Twist (Maurice’s Treats) – If you prefer less sweet treats, then you might enjoy the grey stuff twist at Maurice’s Treats near the front of Sleeping Beauty Castle (face the front of the castle and go left). This treat is flaky and delicious, with just a hint of chocolate.
1: Dole Whip (Tiki Juice Bar) – Everyone’s favorite pineapple soft serve dole whip. Fruity and refreshing for a hot day.
I admit we didn’t have that many treats this time around, as I’ve gotten a bit sick of sugar over the years (I know, weird). But if you’re in the mood for something sweet next time you’re at Disneyland, here’s at least a few things you might want to try.
