Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party kicked-off just over a week ago at Magic Kingdom. Yes, we know it’s August, but that didn’t stop Disney (and us) from celebrating the spookiest time of year. We went to the first party and checked out a bunch of new goodies. First we checked out some cinnamon-based treats at Golden Oak Outpost (you can read that review here). Pecos Bill was next with some spicy nachos and a dessert that’s to die for, full review here. Sleepy Hollow changed-up their pumpkin spice waffle to include more The Nightmare Before Christmas theme, we had a religious experience with the waffle here. We ate some terrible Haunted Mansion Pastries and a brand new Maleficent Waffle Cone from Storybook Treats in Fantasyland. With few treats left we ventured over to Gaston’s Tavern for what promised to be an Oogie Boogie Meringue.
Oogie Boogie Meringue – $4.99
You’re joking me, you gotta be, this can’t be the right treat. But it is. Talk about the promotional picture being extremely deceptive. Sorry lactose intolerant and seliacs, this dessert may cater to your dietary needs but it’s just not good. The Oogie… ‘cream’(?) on top adds a weird layer of whipped meringue on top of the pungent jelly. Pomegranate and cherry might be a good mix for a beverage, but in a gelatin form they’re rather bad. Don’t waste your money on this treat, you’ll be better off rolling your dice elsewhere.
