Vacation Week: Disney World
February 28, 2011
Disney World is the land of everything over-the-top, desserts/sweets/baked goods included. Granted, their desserts don’t have the same appeal as something from a local bakery, or as an artisan confection, but there is something appealing about the mass-produced grandness of Disney World dessert. That same something is the reason people visit the place, to have experiences fit for fantasy.
One of the things I found fit for fantasy? Having chocolate chip cookies thick enough to be cut with biscuit cutters. I realize these probably aren’t, but the idea sends me into chocolate chip cookie dreamland.
Why yes, those are giant pumpkins hanging in nets. There is a new-ish ride in Epcot that takes you on a tour of agricultural developments in the past few years. Truthfully and unfortunately I’ve forgotten their description of the benefit of hanging pumpkins. Turns out I was too distracted thinking about how cute the pun-kin hammocks were.
To avoid turning this post into my personal vacation album, this will be the last shot. Rainbow popcorn! I’ve definitely seen it before, though I can’t remember where… maybe Pennsylvania, maybe Boston, regardless, I love the colored candy puffs. In fact, there are only two ways that popcorn appeals to me; covered in cheese or covered in sugar. Surprise, surprise.
After these photos were taken I came down with a cold, thus ending my vacation food scavenging. Back to my life, I suppose… Breakfast Tuesday coming up tomorrow and a return to my normal blogging schedule!
