Tasty Treat: LeFou’s Brew
LeFou’s Brew … who knew? Not a beer drinker, that’s okay! This Tasty Treat is perfect for adults and kids alike! So … join me for Tasty Treat Tuesday as we feature – LeFou’s Brew!
What is it?
Frozen Apple Juice with a hint of Toasted Marshmallow and topped with All-Natural Passion Fruit-Mango Foam.
Why try it?
First, I must admit that I am not a fan of apple juice. But my husband and daughter love the stuff and insisted that we try LeFou’s Brew during our visit to Walt Disney World this fall. I often feel like most versions of apple juice are overly sweet, and the apple flavor sticks to the tongue in an unpleasant way. For years of traveling to Disney, I avoided it like a plague…. refusing to try one and determined to hate it.
Well, folks. I was wrong! SO SO SO wrong. Disney did it again! As with “the Grey Stuff” at Be Our Guest restaurant, LeFou’s Brew is ah-mazing! The apple juice flavor is subtle and naturally sweet – not sticky or saccharine at all. The hint of toasted marshmallow is more textural than flavorful, adding a fluffy and delicate consistency to the frozen apple juice. No crunchy ice chunks to be found in this one either! The foam topper is creamy and firm but not as heavy as a whipped cream. Tart passion fruit flavor is the stand out in the foam. The hint of citrus contrasts nicely with the sweeter apple frozen mix tucked below. On a hot day, this drink is refreshing and the perfect treat for a warm Florida day.
Where can I find it?
LeFou’s Brew can be found at Gaston’s Tavern in Magic Kingdom. Gaston’s Tavern is situated in a small square themed after Belle’s “Small Provincial Town” from the movie. This entire area is a beautiful spot to explore with tons of details devoted to all things Gaston. Most guests would likely pick Be Our Guest restaurant for the best Beauty and the Beast theming. But Gaston’s Tavern is a spot that is equally immersive and wonderfully detailed. LeFou’s Brew is served cold in a standard plastic cup. Or – for an additional fee, you can upgrade to a souvenir goblet or stein. After grabbing your LeFou’s Brew, take a moment to explore the two rooms inside this small quick-service spot. Of course, Gaston uses “antlers in all of his decorating!” They are everywhere! You will note his large animal fur covered chair in one corner flanked by the giant stone fireplace from the movie. This is a great photo spot and a perfect place to sit and enjoy your LeFou’s Brew! The second room is a bit more subdued, but the dart board on the wall will “tell you whose team they prefer to be on!” This quick service spot offers a small menu of tasty treats, including a “roughly the size of a barge” cinnamon roll. But LeFou’s Brew is my pick for the ultimate Tasty Treat from this spot! It is “perfect, a pure paragon” … just like Gaston!
