PHOTOS: Earth Eats Changes Menu, Adds Kombucha at Epcot International Food & Wine Festival 2018
The Light Lab isn’t the only Food & Wine Festival booth to change their menu after premiering. The Earth Eats booth has flipped-out their cold pressed juices for the (originally advertised) Kombucha.
Health-Ade Kombucha on Draft
These new offerings have replaced the cold-pressed juices. What’s interesting is that a flight isn’t available, whereas it says it is in the festival passport. Regardless, Disney isn’t selling you more than two of these at a time and is treating them like alcohol—see the warning label above. Kombucha is fermented green or black tea that’s slightly alcoholic as a result of the fermentation process. We can understand why Disney wouldn’t want you drinking an entire flight, but if I can buy a 16oz bottle of Kombucha at my local grocer for daily consumption, what’s really the issue?
What’s a bit odd is that the colors don’t really match their flavors. You’d expect the “Pink Lady Apple” to be the pink one, but in fact, it’s the yellow one. Whereas the pomegranate is more the color you’d expect from the Pink Lady. The Beet-Lime is really the only one that comes close to a match. We did, however, find that all the flavor profiles do match their names, but the Beet-Lime was the only one that came in a bit too strong on the overall beet flavor. If you’ve never tried Kombucha, these each present a unique and interesting way to try this fermented tea.
Pink Lady Apple – $2.50
Pomegranate – $2.50
Beet-Lime – $2.50
