‘Tis the season for delicious holiday treats from Disney Parks! A few weeks ago, my fellow author Rachel Bshero gave you a look at candy treats found at Disneyland Resort. The treats she shared were only a handful of items we offer during the holiday season. Here is a look at other festive confections created especially for Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts.
This holiday season, we introduced several new treats including Gingerbread popcorn that has Gingerbread bites mixed in with the popcorn.
We also released three small decorative gift bags that are filled with gummy candies. You may recall seeing similar gift bags during Halloween earlier this year. These last minute gift options fit nicely in a stocking.
For cooler winter days, we have a new holiday mug that can be filled with flavored coffee or hot cocoa. The four-pack of flavored coffee includes a holiday blend along with gingerbread, pumpkin spice, and egg nog blends. The three-pack of hot cocoa contains flavored mixes such as chocolate s’mores, mint chocolate, and white chocolate (I’ll take them all please!).
Other options include frosted pretzels, a decorative tin with peppermint bark, or a Mickey Mouse-shaped ornament that has chocolate candies. I particularly like the Gingerbread cookie mix that includes a Mickey Mouse cookie cutter.
The candy apples Rachel previously shared can be found in locations with on-stage kitchens such as Main Street Confectionery on Main Street, U.S.A. in Magic Kingdom Park, or Trolley Treats in Disney California Adventure park. The on-stage kitchen locations also carry a variety of freshly-made cookies, candies and more.
If you aren’t headed to Disney Parks for the holidays, you can try making a snowman candy apple at home as seen in this “Holiday How To” video.
Finally, I spotted something new this holiday season while visiting Goofy’s Candy Company in Disney Springs Marketplace. It was a chocolate-covered marshmallow surrounded by peppermint bits attached to the end of a candy cane. It seems like it would be the perfect addition to that mug of hot cocoa I am now craving.
