With so many great food specials for the 50th Anniversary, it takes multiple agents and trips to try them all. Today I bring you the fourth installment of our foodie guide which brings maybe my favorite 50th item yet!
Disney's Hollywood Studios - Rosie's All American Café
Disney’s Hollywood Studios 50th Celebration Sandwich Cookie
Celebrating the 50th anniversary with a pretzel shortbread cookie sandwiched with strawberry jam and peanut butter-chocolate fudge
This cookie was honestly such a delight. The first bite is peanut-buttery and wonderful, but then you keep going. Your next bite you get a little jam with the peanut butter cookie, wow it got even better. Now your fully into the cookie, and your third bite has the chocolate fudge in addition to the cookie and the jam and it is just the perfect trifecta of salty and sweet. I can't wait to have this cookie again!
Disney's Animal Kingdom - Dino-Bites Snacks
50th Celebration Ice Cream Sandwich
Vanilla ice cream sandwiched between 2 house-made double chocolate chip cookies with celebration sprinkles and a 50th anniversary medallion
Dino-Bites is one of my regular go-to spots in Animal Kingdom for a quiet break with a tasty treat. I'm a huge fan of the classic chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches. I was excited to give this a try. While the cookie had a great chocolatey flavor, it was a little too crispy to be a good vessel for the ice cream. Each bite found the ice cream trying to escape out the other side. It is quite pretty to look at and so festive, but I just couldn't get past how messy it was!
Magic Kingdom - Sleepy Hollow
The Doom Berry
Blackberry and Ginger Beer with a specialty straw
I'll be honest, I usually find the specialty non-alcoholic drinks too sweet for my taste, but this one was surprisingly refreshing. Blackberry isn't an overly sweet fruit to begin with and then the ginger is just the perfect punch to balance it out. The straw was a big hit as well!
Disney's Hollywood Studios - ABC Commissary
Raspberry-dark chocolate mousse, chocolate-almond cake, and a layer of hazelnut crunch and whipped chocolate-hazelnut cheesecake
This dessert isn't as "in your face 50th" but it sure has elegance and class. Not really what I expected from a quick service dessert honestly. However, this was a chocolate decadence and if you are into that, you will love this dessert. The layers of mousse, cake and crunch played so nicely together. I'm glad we split this, because it is definitely rich!
