REVIEW: Disneyland Park Introduces Insane Cereal & Candy-Topped Doughnuts

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

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…

Disneyland doughnuts can be found here, at the hub coffee cart

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.

Each doughnut is $5.75 each

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.

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.

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.

OVERALL

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.

Pretty rude, Bob – and I bet you normally do nit-pick. Tom, I enjoyed your article. Thanks!

If you have to start your statement with “I’m not one to normally nit-pick”, you might be a nit-picker. Just saying…

I miss the good ol’ days of WDWNT bickering. Much more fun than this censorship laden version of the site.
