BRAND NEW! Millennial Pink Snack Review!


Hey there, Disney Guys and Gals!

     In case you didn't know it, Rose Gold is so over. The color du jour is "Millennial Pink", (aka baby pink, bubble gum pink, cotton candy pink, or just plain old light pink). Disney Parks have hopped on board with the trend, and are offering various snacks adorned in the hue. Just this past week I was able to try out a couple of these treats, so allow me to share with you these pinkalicious wonders!

Millennial Pink Raspberry Cream Puff  (The Market at Ale and Compass @ Beach Club Resort)

     This little lady was super unique and interesting. Found in the chilled display case in the Market; it looked more like a doughnut than a cream puff. The mouse-shaped pastry had a millennial pink icing over the whole thing, a white chocolate bow on top, and a few pink sanding sugar sprinkles for decoration. It was made up of three separate cream puffs, stuck together. As you can see, the sticker called it a "raspberry cream cheese puff." What does that mean? Was it going to be like cheesecake inside? A sweet cream cheese with pureed raspberries? Well, wonder no more...


      The choux pastry was really nice. It wasn't dry at all and had a nice sweetness to it. The icing was just a basic royal icing, with no real flavor. The bow went to the hubs, because I do not enjoy white chocolate. Now, the filling... It was a sweetened, raspberry flavored cream cheese mixture. At first, I wasn't really sure what to think of it. It was sweet and creamy, but even more tart and tangy than cream cheese filling would usually be. I was struggling to decide if I liked it or not, so I kept eating it. Turns out, I did like it, because next thing I knew, I had eaten the whole thing! There was tons of filling inside each of the three puffs and I really ended up loving it. The sugary sweet icing balanced out the tangy filling and the pastry was some of the best puff pastry I have ever had. I highly recommend you give this one a shot, but only if you like cream cheese filling... like, A LOT. I know I'll be going back for another!




Millennial Pink Cupcake  (Fountain View @ Epcot)

     Found in the pre-packed case at Epcot's Starbuck's location, this beauty was MADE for picture-taking! I mean, come on! SO cute! It was a vanilla cake, filled with a strawberry pastry cream. The top had vanilla buttercream frosting, pink sugar sprinkles and a fondant set of Minnie ears and bow. I liked this cupcake a lot. The strawberry cream was light, refreshing and not overly sweet. The buttercream was a perfect amount and it was coated in sprinkles. Personally, I would prefer some other type of sprinkles over straight sugar, as I find sugar crystals to be an oddly crunchy topping, but that's just me. The ears were also quite yummy. I love fondant and prefer it to white chocolate any day. I'd get this cupcake again, for sure. 

Yummy strawberry pastry cream!


Millennial Pink Raspberry Chocolate Cupcake  (The Mara @ Animal Kingdom Lodge)

     Compared to the cupcake above, from the Fountain View, this cupcake was a little more ornate, but kind of gaudy looking to me. Don't get me wrong, I love glitter, but this one was kind of like Tinkerbell exploded on it. And, I don't think I'd classify this as "Millennial Pink." To me, this confection was more hot pink than anything. Still pretty to look at, but a little extra. 

     This cupcake was located in the refrigerated case at The Mara, (Jambo House's counter service location, at Animal Kingdom Lodge), pre-packaged in a plastic case. The cake was chocolate and filled with an airy raspberry mousse. The frosting was a pink vanilla buttercream, and then it was topped with (lots of) edible glitter, a fresh raspberry and white chocolate Minnie ears. Because these cupcakes are kept in a refrigerated case, it was cold, and therefore the frosting was a solid blob and the cake was a little stiff. I'd recommend letting it sit out for a bit before eating it. Flavor-wise, it was very nice. The mousse was light and creamy. I could easily eat just a cup of that! The buttercream was very good too. I tossed the ears since, again, I don't do white chocolate. (It isn't even chocolate! It only calls itself that!) Overall I'd say it was enjoyable, but I much preferred the vanilla/strawberry combo from the Fountain View. 


The raspberry mousse was the best part!


Millennial Pink Milkshake  (Auntie Gravity's @ Magic Kingdom)

     Ok, so I will admit, I made a special trip to The Magic Kingdom for this shake. I mean, it looks like a candy-covered dream come true! Here's the Disney promo pic:

I am sad to report that it didn't look quite as impressive in person. Here's mine:


It seems that they don't give you nearly as much cotton candy as appears in the promo picture, and I get why: as soon as the cotton candy hits the moisture of the shake, it dissolves into a gooey mess. In fact, if you look closely at the promo shot, they kind of cheated and put a lid on the shake, before putting the candy floss, (old timey name for cotton candy), on top. 

     Speaking of lids.... I really wish this shake included one. Wanna know why???? 

Oh nooooooo.....
I don't usually use pictures that show my kiddo's faces, but this one is pretty fuzzy and timed PERFECTLY. Don't worry, we didn't lose the whole thing! We were still able to try it out. 

     The shake itself was strawberry flavored and I'd say it was more similar to the flavor of strawberry milk than to that of actual strawberry ice cream. It was super sweet and kind of a weird, goopey consistency, which I believe was due to the dissolved cotton candy. The marshmallow was pretty amazing, though. It was clearly a handmade marshmallow, with a light fruity flavor and sparkly edible glitter on it. We enjoyed that more than the shake itself. In fact, after a couple of sips each, we were kind of all done with the shake and ended up tossing it in a trashcan. 

     Overall, this pink treat was pretty to look at, and I'm glad we tried it, but I wouldn't get it again. It was my least favorite of my Millennial Pink dining experience.

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs

Frontera Cocina is one of the many restaurants you will find with a celebrity chef at Disney Springs, this one is brought to you by seven-time James Beard award winner, Rick Bayless.  The warm colors and open atmosphere is very welcoming for a contemporary Mexican dining experience.  Reservations are highly suggested and can be made via My Disney Experience or the Open Table app and the restaurant is typically open for lunch and dinner from 11am to 11pm daily.   We had lunch here on a Monday afternoon and the restaurant wasn't too terribly busy at all, which was a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the weekend. We settled in at a table in the middle of the restaurant and got ready for the meal ahead.  While somehow I missed a photo, we did start our meal with $5 margaritas which is definitely a great deal while on Disney property!  This was a "Margarita Monday" special and we would highly recommend it!  We also opted for some chips and salsa and some queso. Now,
