REVIEW: Holiday Red Velvet Whoopie Pie at Hollywood Studios
The Holiday season is well underway here at Walt Disney World, and we’ve been busy working our way through the Parks to explore every possible Christmas offering!
Last night, we visited Hollywood Studios to soak up some nostalgic Christmas vibes…and taste one of their brand-new seasonal treats!
Peppermint Red Velvet Whoopie Pie
This Holiday season, Hollywood Studios is offering a twist on their always-popular whoopie pie offering. Red velvet cake is the visual showstopper here, as the massive treat’s crowning glory is the two huge red velvet cake pieces on the top and bottom. A pink peppermint filling makes up the center, and the whole of the treat is rolled in festive sprinkles.
The cake was very fresh and I was able to easily cut into it with my plastic fork to get a look at the cross section. I am personally not a huge peppermint dessert fan, and this one packed an overly saccharine peppermint punch.
There were no chunks of candy cane or peppermint candy that I could detect, and the unfortunately, the syrup-y peppermint flavor overpowered the cake portion entirely. Visually, the sprinkles paired with the pink frosting and red cake did look really festive!
All in all, I preferred both the gingerbread cookie, and even the seasonal Mickey brownie over this one though. If you’re a peppermint fan and are looking for a sharable (and Instagram-able) treat, this one is definitely for you!
