If you’re someone who insists on trying everything at the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts (and we certainly understand that mentality), there’s a new offering at this year’s festival that might just tickle you pink! Don’t feel blue for not knowing! You could go on a journey that will make others green with envy! Orange you wondering what it is? Red… I mean, read on!
New this year is the Wonderful Walk of Colorful Cuisine, a program where guest can purchase select items at Food Studios around the park and receive a free culinary treat for completing the palette!
Participating items include:
- Deconstructed BLT, The Deconstructed Dish (Stay tuned for our review!)
- Almond Frangipane Cake, Pop Eats! (Stay tuned for our review!)
- Seared Corvina, Cuisine Classique
- Pan-Seared Scallop, The Artist’s Table
- Vanilla, Rose Water and Pistachio Panna Cotta, The Masterpiece Kitchen
When you purchase an item, you’ll receive a stamp in your complimentary Festival Passport. Once you’ve collected all five stamps, head to Decadent Delights to collect your complimentary culinary treat!
Now, let’s say, for argument’s sake, that you’re just too full after all that food. You can still complete the task, as you don’t have to do it all in one day! As long as you’ve finished by the festival’s last day February 24th, you can still get your completer prize. Now let’s say a stand isn’t open when you visit EPCOT. Thankfully, cast members will stamp your passport when participating stands are unexpectedly closed.
As you may have guessed, the treats we received are a cookie and a cup of strawberry milk. The milk tastes just like strawberry Nesquik. Being in a warm sunny theme park, we weren’t excited at the thought of anything milky. But once we had a sip together with the cookie, we were very glad we did! Served incredibly icy cold, it was super refreshing.
The cookie, which resembles an artist’s palette, was prepackaged and exactly as advertised. It was essentially like when corporations order prepackaged cookies for promotional events. It’s a shortbread cookie, with fondant on top. The fondant has flavor of SUGAR with no discernible flavor beyond that.
All in all, if you’re planning to get the five participating items anyway, it’s a neat-looking giveaway, but in of itself, it’s not anything special.
