REVIEW: Chick Peas, Nuts & Dates, Olives, Sangria, and More Available at NEW Snack Cart in Morocco Pavilion Bazaar at EPCOT

Last updated:

Today we discovered that a new snack cart has found its way to the Morocco Pavilion at EPCOT. The cart is located in the covered market and features some Moroccan snacks including Roasted Seasoned Chick Peas, Mixed Nuts and Dates, Mediterranean Olives and a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

It’s a decent sized menu for a stand.

The snacks are packaged so you can eat on the go. You can also enjoy them at the tables now situated in the market area.

The Roasted Seasoned Chick Peas caught our eye first, so we decided to give them a try.

Roasted Seasoned Chick Peas – $4.25

You can see from the picture above that the chick peas were generously coated with seasoning. We thought these were amazing. The seasoning was not too salty and we noticed a slight curry flavor that reminded us of cardamon and cumin.

Mediterranean Olives – $5.25

The Mediterranean Olives are tossed in a house-made marinade and featured a variety of different kinds of olives including green, kalamata, whole cloves of garlic, pepper bits, and pickles. This was a good-sized portion for the price point.

There’s a good balance of salty and acidity of the olives to the marinade. We noticed hints of citrus and possibly cayenne pepper. Due to the subtle heat, this would pair well with the sangria or Casa Beer. The pickled garlic could have been crunchier, but we could have just received a soggy one.

We were really impressed with these olives even though we’re not usually fans. We would definitely purchase them again.

Mixed Nuts and Dates – $6.00

The Mixed Nuts and Dates are coated in an oat flour seasoning that is different than the chickpeas we sampled and feature a variety of nuts including cashews, almonds, peanuts, and some dates.

We couldn’t sample these nuts due to an allergy, but we thought they looked delicious. These would also pair nicely with one of the beverages offered at the snack cart.

Overall, we think this new snack cart is a nice addition to Morocco and brings some much needed life to the back portion of the pavilion.

We also recently discovered this new spice display at the nearby Spice Road Table, and also dined at the now Disney operated establishment.
