Disney Spooktacular Foods

Let’s face it, it’s no secret that I LOVE food. And nothing’s better that spooky HALLOWEEN themed food! Disney is known for getting decked out for the Halloween season, they’ve gone all out this year with some ghoulish themed food and I made it my goal to try a variety of these tasty treats.

My friends, Sarah Sterling and Leo Camacho, took me to some of their favorite spots in Disney California Adventure to try some of the Halloween foods Disney has to offer:

Slow Burnin’ Mac & Cheese Cone – Mac & nacho cheese in a “black cauldron” pretzel cone with Hot Cheetos dust sprinkled on top. A unique twist on the normal cones they sell here, this was one of my favorites! The spicy kick from the nacho cheese and Hot Cheetos was surprisingly delicious. Location: Cars Land, Cozy Cone Motel Price: $8.99

Spoke-y Cone Macaron – An orange cone-shaped macaron filled with cream and candy corn. This was honestly a straight shot of sugar. I normally love candy corn but none of the flavors really stood out to me which was disappointing. If you have a craving for sugar this is for you, but it’s one of the weaker treats on this list!  Location: Cars Land – Cozy Cone Motel Price: $5.49

Pumpkin Spice Churro  Whenever I go to Disneyland getting a churro is top-priority. I was so excited to hear they had a variety of Halloween churros that included purple and green colored churros and these pumpkin spice ones we tried. My whole group was really pumped to taste this churro but it kinda left us disappointed. The pumpkin flavors weren’t strong enough and it was just ok overall. BUT the best part was definitely the ghost sprinkles they put on top. I’m a sucker for cute sprinkles… Location: Cars Land – Cozy Cone Motel Price: $4.50

Pumpkin Raisin Bread Pudding – Pumpkin flavored bread pudding with raisins and whipped cream on top. This should definitely be on everyone’s list of foods they have to try here. I hate raisins but they worked so well in this dessert, they almost tasted like apples! The spices and sweetness made it feel like the holidays with every bite! Location: Pacific Wharf Café Price: $5.39

Spider Silk Ice Cream Sandwich – A black macaron with “charcoal-tart cherry spun” ice cream topped with popping candy and drops of raspberry sauce. My friends didn’t care for this one too much but I really enjoyed it! The fruity flavors and tartness of the cherry and raspberry mixed together really well to make quick little dessert! Location: Clarabelle’s Hand Scooped Ice Cream Price: $6.49

Spicy Pepper Jack Cheese Stick – A cheese stick dipped in corn batter, drizzled with blackberry sauce and topped with sweet pineapple salsa, pickled serranos and crushed cheese puffs. At first glance this thing is weird.. At first taste this thing is weird.. BUT it wasn’t actually bad! The spices mixed with the cheese were really good, but the blackberry sauce seemed really out of place and threw the whole thing off. Location: Corn Dog Castle Price: $8.49

Ghost-ly Pepper Nachos – Ghost pepper-marinated steak with green tortilla chips topped with ghost pepper cheese sauce, black beans and avocado-tomatillo salsa. The waitress tried to tell us to share these nachos but we each ended up getting our own.. THANK GOD! These nachos were extra spicy and delicious, the ghost pepper cheese sauce had the perfect amount of kick to it and the steak was marinated perfectly. I definitely didn’t want to share! Location: Cove Bar Price: $16

Halloween Specialty Cocktail – A spooky cocktail made of vodka and Chambord with purple sugar along the rim and an eyeball garnish made with a cherry stuffed into a lychee. After a long day at the park this was a nice refreshing drink to have!  Location: Cove Bar Price: $14

Coco Tres Leches Parfait – Vanilla cake layered with sweet caramel cream and dark rum. I really liked the flavors in this treat! This is teeeechnically not a Halloween treat but part of Disney’s promotion for their upcoming film Coco. But we loved the skull design based on the tradition of Día de los Muertos so much we decided to include it! I’m normally a huge tres leches fan, even though this tasted a little more like tiramisu to me. But I was actually the only one in my group who liked this dessert, the others thought the rum taste was overpowering.  Location: Plaza de Familia Price: $5.49

Of all the Halloween goodies we tried the Slow Burnin’ Mac & Cheese and the Pumpkin Raisin Bread Pudding were my absolute favorites! I actually made a video trying some of the these treats listed, if you haven’t watched it already then check it out!
