Tasty Treats in Orlando
Orlando has some very unusual and tasty treats available which you do not find in the UK. If you have already been to The Magic Kingdom in Disney World, you may have seen Turkey Legs for sale. These are turkey legs like you have never seen before, they look more like ostrich legs and they are very tasy – skip lunch, have a turkey leg. Also at Disney World there are Churros these are served warm and are like long thin doughnuts but coated with cinnamon sugar, amazingly tempting.
You can only try Funnel Cake if you like very sweet, greasy cakes (which I do). These are on sale at Epcot in the World Showcase. In Downtown Disney there is a sweet shop which sells candy apples or chocolate apples with rainbow sprinkles, The apples are not up to much but the toppings are! Salt Water Taffy sold at Disney and at other sweet shops around Orlando is wonderful, a bit like fruit toffee and guaranteed to take out a filling or two.!!!
At Old Town in Kissimmee there is a popcorn shop which sells at least 25 different flavours of popcorn both sweet and savoury. Do you fancy trying 'egg and bacon'; 'cheddar cheese' or 'bubble gum' flavoured popcorn? Further up Highway 192 at Celebration and at The Florida Mall you can buy ice cream at the Cold Stone Creamery. This is different to any other ice cream as you select a flavour and a topping, nuts, sprinkles, chocolate chips etc., and they take a large scoop of the ice cream and put it on an ice cold slab (hence the name) they pat it out and place the topping/s in the middle then mix it all up and serve it in a cup or a cone. If you cannot decide they have a menu of various specials or the server will be able to advise.
Auntie Anne’s Pretzels may now be available in the UK but much cheaper in Florida. These are hot soft pretzels dipped in cinnamon sugar and as big as your hand! Dunkin’ Donuts hot glazed are my preferred option.. delicious... or would that be a donut from Krispy Creme? why not try out both but you may need to walk a few mile round a theme park afterwards as I dread to think how calorific they are.
Ghirardelli’s Ice cream and Chocolate Shop in Downtown Disney is a chance to enjoy some very unusual ice cream sundaes that most people share, they are so big, however, I am not most people and can just about manage a whole one on my own!! I am on holiday after all.
If you would just like a single scoop cone you will get two scoops – don’t ask me why, you just do.
