What's Your #1 Can't Miss Snack?

What's Your #1 Can't Miss Disney Snack? It can be from any Park, or Resort, or from Disney Springs. It can be something you eat there or something you save to bring home. Tell me what you just can't live without.

Easy. Rice Krispy treat. Hands down. mickey I like them in the park and I love bringing them home when we haven't used all of our snack credits.

However, we just discovered (thanks to you fine people) the carrot cake cookie. That is a very close second.

Third is a Mickey Ice Cream Bar.

Just one? I have a few! But if I had to just pick one I would settle for a dole whip unless a lapu lapu counts as a snack than I pick that. biggrin

I came home with a Krispy treat, but it had to be a fresh one from Goofy's, I did not like the prepackaged versions.

If I could get on a plane now and pick up just one thing it would be that, followed closely by an ice cream waffle bowl from AK

Popcorn. I always get popcorn.

After that, we always get samosas at AK, egg rolls at Epcot, and corn dog nuggets at MK. But popcorn is the only must-have for me.

A snack from the Big Top tent is a must on my list. I usually get a caramel apple, but MrHub introduced me to the chocolate covered pineapple spear back in September and that rates very high on my list now. If you've never had one and you like pineapple and chocolate, you must try it. Crunchy chocolate coating on the outside and the juiciest pineapple I've ever had underneath. awesome

So here's the $20,000 question in my head. Does all the chocolate fall off the pineapple once you bite into it?

Cheeseburger Egg Rolls - this is new and must have every trip!

I would say it depends how you eat it. A bit of chocolate may fall off but I usually have the paper bag under it. But it doesn't just fall apart.

It's no different than eating any other hand-held snack there. If you eat it like an animal, of course it will go everywhere. I've seen people eating corn on the cob that makes a vulture look like it has manners. If you hold a napkin under it and eat it normally, its fine.

Not always. I know exactly where Kristen's going with this. For example: chocolate covered strawberries. You take one bite (not the whole thing..that would be "vulture-like") and ALL of the chocolate coating comes off. Sure, that chocolate is now in the napkin you're holding under it, but now you just have a piece of slimey chocolate and a piece of strawberry. Then you have to bite the remaining strawberry and put that piece of chocolate in at the same time and suddenly you're a slob cause it's not pretty! I can see this same problem happening with the chocolate covered pineapple (though the idea sounds delicious!)

I guess I just don't understand why this is an issue. If you avoid trying it because you're afraid that chocolate might fall off of it, you're missing out on a good thing. Again, it's no different than any other snack such as chocolate covered cake pops, or candy apples, mickey ice-cream bars, popcorn, or even eating a crunchy cookie where crumbs might fall. I stand by my recommendation that if you like pineapple and chocolate, you should try it. It's delicious.

It's an issue because it's not REALLY an issue. It was intended to be a light-hearted debate about the nature of chocolate covered fruits and how their chocolate doesn't generally staying on when biting into it. There are plenty of more important WDW debates to discuss...like why they are taking away the clocks or why Peter Pan is so ridiculously popular! wink

I need a reminder to try said chocolate covered pineapple on a stick in a couple weeks when I go down. I will have mom document it on film and report back to you all! LOL Not only will it be a new treat for me to try but we will see what happens to the chocolate.

*making note in travel plans now*

There are a lot of snacks that I LOVE but the one and only snack that I HAVE to get every single time is a Mickey Ice Cream bar. It's a rule.

I love the white chocolate chip raspberry cookies they sell throughout the world. But the ones in DL are made fresh in the Main Street Bakery- whoa that's good stuff.

The only thing that I get on EVERY trip is a Blue Glowtini (or 2 or 3). I have about 10 of those plastic ice cubes. laugh laugh

Any other snack is a combination of "whatever I feel like having at the moment" and "whatever is nearby."

DH would cast another vote for the chocolate pineapple spears. He discovered those on our first adult trip, and has to have one every time now.

For me, it's Dole Whip, popcorn, and tie dye cheescake from POP's foodcourt.
