REVIEW: New Seasonal Pineapple Coconut Chocolate-Covered Bacon Arrives at Kona Island in Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
We’ve recently discovered that Kona Island has upgraded their snack display case big time. From a variety of chocolate-covered strawberries to Stitch dome cakes, there is something for everybody. We fell in love with the other varieties of chocolate covered bacon offered at the Polynesian, and now a new seasonal bacon has been added to the menu. The perfect summer flavor has arrived- Pineapple Coconut Chocolate Covered Bacon! Is this piña colada bacon as amazing as the others? It’s time to pig out!
This delicious-sounding bacon combines two tropical flavors that are fitting for the Polynesian Resort. Large chunks of dehydrated pineapple stand out on the layer of chocolate. Coconut shavings are sprinkled throughout, and thin drizzles of milk and white chocolate top it all off. You can’t miss this beauty.
As with the previous bacon orders, you basically get two slices stuck together for the price of $4. This is a great snack deal by Disney standards.
If you’ve ever had the “pineapple on pizza” debate with someone, we’d like to present a new topic for discussion: Does pineapple belong on chocolate covered bacon?
The pineapple is sweet and the taste stands out among the chocolate and salty bacon. The coconut flakes add a lot of texture rather than a noticeable flavor. (If you’re not a fan of coconut, they can easily be picked off.) The pineapple pieces really steal the show here, though.
The bacon bites easily and has a chewier consistency. The dried pineapple gives a nice burst of sweet flavor to the chocolate. The chocolate and and pineapple pair well, and combined with the bacon, it’s giving off a lot of summer vibes.
This sweet and savory treat is well worth the $4 and has unique flavor that will bring us back to Kona Island again soon. Do you think coconut and pineapple belong on chocolate covered bacon? Or is this flavor combination too “out there” for you? Let us know in the comments!
