REVIEW: Clarabelle’s Unleashes Bat Wing Sundae and Spider Silk Sandwich for HalloweenTime
Clarabelle’s Hand-Scooped Ice Cream on Buena Vista Street at Disney California Adventure has some wonderful HalloweenTime specials available right now through October 31st, 2017, so let’s check them out before they fly away!
Bat Wing Raspberry Sundae ($7.49)
“White chocolate, raspberry swirl ice cream with raspberry splatter, blood red sprinkles, whipped cream, and bat wing cookie”
This is just about the best sundae I’ve ever had at a Disney theme park, in both taste and value. This thing is huge and two of us had a really hard time finishing it, but it was so good that we felt compelled to do so.
First off, the dark chocolate bat cookie is even better than the ubiquitous “vanilla” Mickey Bat Cookie sold around the Disneyland Resort at this time of year, and it complimented the raspberry flavors in the sundae very well. The white chocolate raspberry swirl ice cream should be offered all year long, because it is absolutely fantastic. Any item in this would be good on its own, but I applaud the culinary team for choosing the pieces they put together here, not only making the sundae look great for the season, but also offering a unique flavor that you can’t get at any other time.
You can get this sundae with any flavors that you choose, but I’m not sure why you wouldn’t just get it as intended, as seen above.
Spider Silk Ice Cream Sandwich ($6.49)
“Black macaron with charcoal-tart cherry spun ice cream topped with popping candy and drops of raspberry sauce.”
While it may not have been the most appetizing thing to look at, this one gets a lot of points for originality. Charcoal-Tart Cherry is another ice cream type that you can’t get at any other time of year, and I would most equate it to a muted cherry flavor. The popping candy is a fun addition and the raspberry sauce is a nice touch, but if you have to choose one item, go for the Bat Wing Sundae above.
