*NEW* Ranch Fried Chicken Wings with Buffalo Hot Sauce Drizzle – $8.00

cluck a doodle moo 2020 disney california adventure food wine festival ranch fried chicken wings 2.jpg?auto=compress%2Cformat&fit=scale&h=750&ixlib=php 1.2

Wings. A classic dish we all know and love… but ranch fried wings? Thatโ€™s a little different.

This plate comes with four chicken wings covered in a buffalo hot sauce.

When tasting this, we thought ranch was going to be a very powerful flavor, and it wasnโ€™t. It tasted like any average wings youโ€™ve ever had.

The chicken was a little chewy and some parts were still cold.

The buffalo hot sauce had a kick, but also almost had kind of a buttery aftertaste.

Sadly, the chicken just didnโ€™t cut it for us.

French Onion Grilled Beef Tenderloin Slider – $8.50

This French Onion Grilled Beef Tenderloin is served between two pieces of white bread with onion and a lean piece of beef tenderloin.

This slider is the perfect portion size, taste, and price. The beef tenderloin is topped with a Fermier cheese that is absolutely delicious.

The meat is cooked perfectly. giving a nice buttery flavor, though the texture was a little stringy.

The Fermier cheese made this slider. It had almost a fruity taste while also being extremely savory.

The onion was grilled well, adding a bitter/sour taste that complimented the beef.

The bread was a normal white bread roll. We wished it was different, as it was very dry.

This is a slider that’s definitely worth your time.

Cutting into this, we werenโ€™t sure what to expect, but we were happily surprised.

The outer shell is milk chocolate with toasted hazelnuts, giving a sweet, nutty taste.

The inside is filled with a hazelnut mousse, which is amazing. The same nutty taste is brought through in an almost whipped cream-textured filling. Inside all of that, we then have a rich chocolate surrounding roasted hazelnuts.

The chocolate was creamy, smooth, and not too sweet, which I like. The hazelnuts had an almost roasted taste when paired with the chocolate. Overall, this is a great desert option.

Did you find this year’s edition of Cluck-A-Doodle-Moo a better version than last year, or has this marketplace yet to hit its stride?
