REVIEW: New Oogie Boogie Snake Eyes Drink with Dice Glow Cubes at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party 2019 in the Magic Kingdom
Boo to you! And welcome to this year’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. We’re delving into a night of ghoulish treats, spooky merchandise, and chilling spells. Trick, or treat? Let’s move on to the delectable snacks available across the Magic Kingdom throughout the night. We’re at Storybook Treats in Fantasyland for a beverage all about Oogie Boogie. Care to try your luck with a pair of “Snake Eyes?”
Snake Eyes – $9.99
“Oh, the sound of rollin’ dice to me is music in the air, ’cause I’m a gamblin’ Boogie Man, although I don’t play fair…”
Halloween Town’s mean and green resident has finally been given his due in drink form. Snake Eyes is a terrifying concoction of Sprite, lemonade, green apple, ice, and gummy worms. And for a touch of good luck, two glow cubes resembling Oogie Boogie’s dice complete the drink. Ours came one red, one green. This beverage has arrived fashionably late to the party due to shipping issues, likely on the glow cubes.
Our first impressions of the drink was that it was super sweet as well as tangy and fizzy, thanks to the Sprite. We initially found it to be way too sweet for us, though the sweetness calmed down towards the bottom of the drink.
Otherwise, it’s a rather basic drink. It’s not bad if you like the flavors involved, but I doubt it’s something we’d run to get again.
Of course, getting the drink is also the only way to obtain these themed glow cubes, as they are not sold separately, so collectors of The Nightmare Before Christmas memorabilia may be more inclined to buy the beverage.
