So, today, we're going to do a little food review, just to get us started. I named the segment after the fictional treats Kanine Krunchies from 101 Dalmatians. Please do not let the segment's being named after dog treat imply that the food is ever bad.
Today, we're looking at a snack and a specialty drink from Maurice's Treats cart, located in the Princess Fantasy Faire area on the border of Main Street and Fantasyland.
First, here is the Cheddar Garlic Bagel Twist, pictured here.
Now, it's priced at $4.69, higher than the Strawberry and Chocolate Twists (both $3.69), for good reason. It's big. If they sold meat, you could easily wrangle a sandwich for two out of this honkin' big thing. It's tasty enough, but not as garlic-y as it should be. Maybe it's just me, but if garlic is in the name, you should need a breath mint after. If you've got any kind of dairy issue, be warned about the cheddar, but other than that, it's a pretty substantial snack.
Should I instate some kind of rating system? 1-5 Mickey's? I'd give this a good 3.5 Mickeys.
Now, bad news. The Boysen Apple Freeze.
The novelty drink comes either in the cup, or a Gaston themed plastic stein. If you're getting it for the stein ($9.99), that's all well and good. If you think it's a refreshing treat, think again. It's an apple juice slushie with some boysenberry syrup hastily mixed in. Without the stein it's just $4.69 and that's still a lot for something that was not at all refreshing on an unusually warm day.
My understanding is this drink is served in Gaston's Tavern at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom, and many have implied it is intended as a response to Wizarding World of Harry Potter's Butterbeer.
I'll pause while you laugh.
Rating: No Mickeys. Skip it. It will not quench your thirst.
So, that's it for this week. Sorry for the delay, but blog.com proved to be a less than reliable server. For the time being, we here at Shadow of the Mouse are excited to continue with blogger.com.
The next few posts are going to be an interesting mix of posts. We have Easter festivities to cover in the parks, as well as a jaunt down to Universal Studios to check out The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Then, we've got Food & Wine in April and May...because Spring Break apparently doesn't bring in enough of the crowds down to Anaheim. 😏
Prices were verified at All Ears, a wonderful resource I often use myself!
As always, I welcome your feedback. Please leave any comments down below. Attractions you want me to ride on Periscope (paperdoll1986), events and information you'd like me to cover, etc.
Just a little reminder, I can be found on social media:
