REVIEW: New Piña Colada Crème Brûlée Brings a Tropical Twist to Amorette’s Patisserie
Say “Aloha!” to the new Piña Colada Crème Brûlée from Amorette’s Patisserie at Disney Springs. They’re always coming up with something new and delicious, and this time is no exception. They’ve put a summer twist on a classic dessert by using a tropical pineapple and coconut custard.
When you order one of these beauties, they’ll be taken away to prepare it by adding and caramelizing a layer of sugar on top. The Crème Brûlée is then decorated with an adorable pineapple shaped cookie, dark chocolate piece, and cherry garnish. It’s a beautiful presentation, and almost too pretty to eat. Almost.
We crack the crispy top layer with ease and dig into the custard. The consistency of the custard is nice, but the flavor was not what we had expected. We were expecting to taste more pineapple, but it seems as if the coconut is the dominate flavor here. Even if you don’t like coconut, the taste isn’t very powerful. Surprisingly, the piña colada flavors aren’t very strong at all. The dessert is very light, which makes it nice and refreshing on a hot day.
A bitter tasting dark chocolate piece with the Amorette’s Patisserie logo sits in front of a sugar cookie pineapple. The top of the pineapple is even brushed with an edible metallic gold coloring. The crunchy cookie and smooth custard go well together, almost like a pie filling and crust. We absolutely fell in love with the cookie, both for it’s cuteness and taste. It reminded us of shortbread, and we wanted more.
While the custard didn’t really impress us, the pineapple shaped cookie on top was amazing. This new Piña Colada Crème Brûlée is $6 and can be found at Amorette’s Patisserie at Disney Springs. Will you be making your way to Disney Springs to give this one a try?
