Tasty Treat Tuesday – Pixar Candy Apple Cuteness
Welcome back to Tasty Treat Tuesday here at MickeyBlog.com!
We all know that Walt Disney World is known for its iconic eats – popcorn, pretzels, ice cream and even Mickey waffles. HOWEVER – did you know that the theme parks are about SO much more than those classic well-loved treats? Each week, I’m ready to show you a unique tasty treat and where to find it on your next Disney vacation!
So, come join me on this weekly journey to find your new favorites! It’s time to create a new tradition!
Tasty Treat: Pixar Candy Apple Cuteness
Pixar Pier opens in only a few short months (June 23rd to be exact), but guests visiting prior to this much anticipated event can still enjoy many of the festivities at Pixar Fest. And if my most recent post about the Pixar themed churros didn’t make you consider a trip to Disneyland this summer, then it’s time to up the game and show you ALL of the Candy Apple Cuteness that has arrived for Pixar Fest!
Yes, yes, I know! Candy Apples are a Disney theme park staple. These delightfully tart granny smith apples are dipped in caramel, melted chocolate and decorated with candy sugar, marshmallows and even more chocolate! It is a sugar-lover’s delight!
But what makes these particular apples worthy of a mention on Tasty Treat Tuesday are their unique and adorable cuteness. Sometimes … it’s not about taste that can make a treat worthy of a mention in this weekly post. Sometimes, it’s all about looks, and these beauties are a work of art!
It’s time to visit Disneyland, again, readers … because these candy apples will not be around for long! In a battle of East vs. West, Disneyland is slowly edging its way towards a Summertime win when it comes to brand new tasty treats!
