Disneyland Park is home to some of the most epic theme park snacks of all time: the Dole Whip, the churro, and the Mickey Pretzel, just to name a few. Now, as of this past weekend, it is home to specialty doughnuts. BUT DO THEY LIVE UP TO THE RICH LEGACY OF JUNK FOOD AT DISNEYLAND? You are about to find out…
The hub coffee cart is home to the crazy creations, an interesting spot to say the least. This location already can boast some pretty hefty lines (even without selling Starbucks Coffee), never mind with these colorful treats glistening in the visible display case.
All 3 doughnuts we found upon visiting are $5.75 each. Enough yapping, let’s eat some “family-based treats” at the Happiest Place on Earth.
Chocolate Doughnut with Peanut Butter Cups & Crispy Orange Sprinkles ($5.75)
The peanut butter cup doughnut was OK. It tasted like a donut with a peanut butter cup on top… which I suppose is what it is. The chocolate icing was nice in flavor, but the actual donut was meh. In fairness, it was 10pm in the evening when these were obtained, so they just might have been sitting there for too long to be perfect.
Lemon Doughnut with Fruity Pebbles ($5.75)
Now the lemon doughnut covered in Fruity Pebbles… this one is amazing. The lemon icing mixed with the fruity pebbles is simply magically. Even though the doughnut underneath wasn’t very fresh, the tartness of the lemon mixing with the sweet Fruity Pebbles makes for one of the absolute best snacks in all of Disneyland.
Vanilla Doughnut with M&M’s Minis, Rainbow Sprinkles, & Waffle Cone Bits ($5.75)
This vanilla donut was just alright. It is really, really sweet, In fact…
The waffle cone bits were soft and not crunchy which is not what we expected. The M&M’s Minis actually worked very well on the doughnut. This one isn’t a bad choice if you have picky eaters or kids in your party who want to get in on the fun.
We should probably try them again when they are fresh, but regardless, the Fruity Pebbles doughnut is the real winner. This thing can go toe-to-toe with the best of them as far as Disneyland snacks are concerned. Be sure to give that one (and maybe one of the other two) a shot on your next trip to Disneyland Park.
