Welcome to a Marketplace Booth review for the 2019 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, taking place in the park from August 29 to November 23, 2019.

*NEW* Sweet Corn Fritter with Fresno and Red Pepper Jelly – $5.50
The Sweet Corn Fritters are delicious, especially paired with the Fresno and Red Pepper Jelly, which has a winning taste. Think of a softer version of the Hush Puppies and sauce from Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ at Disney Springs and you’re on the right track. Definitely a great one to try if you’re vegan and looking for something from this stand.
*NEW* Strawberry-dusted Yeast Donut Holes – $4.00
The Strawberry-dusted Yeast Donut Holes are just… donut holes. There’s no strong strawberry taste from the sugar dusting, leaving this option to be an expensive version of any other donut holes that you could buy.
*NEW* Strawberry Smoothie made with Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almondmilk® – $5.00
The Strawberry Smoothie is delicious, creamy and smooth––everything you want from a smoothie. The almond milk does make the consistency very thin and runny, but that’s a minor oversight. The donut hole sitting on top does become soggy in very little time, however I dipped it into the smoothie itself and the taste was an improvement from the donut hole by itself.
From correspondence with Central 28 Beer Company‘s Headbrewer Geoff DeBisschop: “Our Boston Cream Donut ale is a sweet ale inspired by the famous Boston Cream Donut. Toasted malt evokes the chewy donut, while an addition of milk sugar and vanilla beans provide a sweeter, filling-like counterpoint. Assertive chocolate aroma and flavor insure that the frosting is not forgotten. This beer is sweet but still quite drinkable…”
*NEW* Black and White Coffee Cocktail garnished with a Fresh Yeast Donut with Chocolate Espresso Bean Crumbles – $14.00
The Black and White Coffee Cocktail is by far my favorite from the offerings. The cocktail has Jim Beam bourbon whiskey and a vanilla liqueur mixed in with the iced coffee and they definitely stand out while drinking. There’s a slight burning from the alcohol when drinking this cocktail, however it takes nothing away from how delicious this drink is. The donut is solely made up for by the Chocolate Espresso Bean Crumbles which have a very strong taste but really make the donut portion of this offering, without the crumbles the donut would be average.
