REVIEW: NEW PB & J Mochi and Sweet Lumpia are Welcome Additions to The Tropical Hideaway at Disneyland
From cupcakes to ice cream, we’ve enjoyed our share of sweet treats at the Disneyland Resort. But sometimes we just want something… different. Something exotic. That’s when we head to The Tropical Hideaway at Disneyland and enjoy what they have to offer. And today, that something happens to be two new items: PB & J mochi and sweet lumpia!
The two new items debuted on the menu today, and of course, we had to check them out!
PB & J Mochi – $6.99
Mochi has made its way to Disneyland! This PB & J mochi has a soft, squishy outside (it’s a Japanese rice cake) filled with peanut butter drizzled in raspberry sauce and topped in peanut butter dust. They’re served three to an order.
This treat is delectable! The classic flavors never fail to be delicious, even when in mochi form!
The treat was incredibly chewy, but still easy to bite.
The peanut butter dust added a crunchy texture to the soft sweet treat.
The sauce was pretty well distributed across the three mochi, which was nice.
The raspberry drizzle was tart, but it also made the dish feel more fresh. The peanut butter filling was light, but not too thick.
All these flavors came together and made for the perfect treat.
Sweet Lumpia – $6.99
The sweet lumpia are made with banana, jackfruit, and caramel drizzle, and come two to an order.
Being big fans of the regular lumpias, we were excited to try the sweet lumpia. This treat was filled with banana and jackfruit with a crispy breading and a caramel drizzle.
At first bite, the caramel flavor is very strong. While sweet, there is so much of it that it becomes overpowering (and sticky).
The breading is crispy with a sweet flavor as well.
The banana and jackfruit were… interesting. The banana was extremely mushy, almost making the lumpia soggy. The jackfruit added an exciting flavor, but didn’t offset the banana as much as we wanted it to.
If you’re looking for a soggy, sticky, but sweet treat, this is for you.
