Originally boasting 16 flavors, you can now chose from 18 flavors at the Walt Disney World location, including the three new flavors: Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Red Velvet Ooey Gooey Butter Cake, and Shirley Temple.
So, what the best way to try all three new flavors? With an ice cream flight of course! for $9.49, you can get a nice portion of 6 different flavors from Ample Hills.
The flight carton doesn’t look particularly large, but ours was packed with so much ice cream that we couldn’t close it.
We also got the regular Ooey Gooey Butter Cake, the Malty Salty Pretzel Punch, and PB Wins the Cup as those are a few of our old favorites. Alas, we are not here to talk about old flavors, we are focusing on the new…
Chocolate Fudge Brownie is milk chocolate ice cream with real brownie pieces and it is as good as it sounds. Sure, brownie in ice cream has been done a million times, but the brownie in this tasted as it should with a rich fudge flavor. It’s simple compared to many other options at Ample Hills, but it is one of their best for chocolate lovers.
The Shirley Temple is a mocktail for kids and this sorbet tries its best to emulate it. This vegan friendly offering features cherry, lemon, lime, and a splash of ginger. It’s certainly not bad, and I applaud the presence of vegan-friendly options, but if you can eat normal ice cream, I can’t imagine this will do it for you. On the positive side, the flavors didn’t taste artificial, something I never expect from such things in a theme park setting.
And now on to the star: Red Velvet Ooey Gooey Butter Cake. I have always been a fan of the regular Ooey Gooey Butter cake, but I’m not sure I can ever go back to it after this. It’s smooth, rich, and filled with large bits of red velvet cake. Perhaps the cake isn’t as “ooey gooey” as the original, but the flavor profile of vanilla ice cream meeting red velvet cake exceeds the old standard in our opinion. A must try.
Ample Hills continues to be the ultimate ice cream stop at Walt Disney World, far and away the only ice cream shop on property I have consistent cravings for. These flavor additions continue the tradition and make Ample Hills THE reason to take a jaunt over to Disney’s Boardwalk. It’s a great way to follow up meals at the revamped Boardwalk Pizza Window or a bite from the Boardwalk Bakery.
