This pie is red with a gold lantern design stamped on the top. It comes wrapped in plastic on a gold cardboard tray.

This is the best option from the cart. It’s on the sweeter side, but not inedible.

The cookie top and bottom are soft. The middle is a rich and delicious vanilla buttercream.

The pearl sprinkles on the outside add some fun, crunchy texture.

*NEW* Assorted Pretzel Sticks – $12

There are two striped designs for these pretzel sticks. The red with gold stripes represents the general Lunar New Year, while the orange with black stripes represents the Year of the Tiger. One pack comes with five pretzel sticks.

These taste exactly how you would expect. They’re pretzel sticks with a coating of white chocolate.

They’re fine and photogenic but at $12 for five sticks, this might not be the best use of your money.

*NEW* Mickey-shaped Tiger Sugar Cookie – $9

Sugar cookie dipped in red chocolate with gold Mickey-shaped tiger

This Mickey-shaped cookie features an adorable tiger face.

It tastes exactly the same as the tiger-striped cookie (below), which is a typical Disney sugar cookie that stays together until you bite into it, and then it crumbles.

It’s not sweet at all. The designs make it and the other cookie super photogenic.

The red frosting and the edible gold glitter do get everywhere.

It’s not life-changing but it’s a fun cookie to take home, grab as a snack, or get as a present.

*NEW* Mickey-shaped Tiger-striped Sugar Cookie – $9

Sugar cookie dipped in red chocolate with gold tiger stripes

This cookie is red with gold tiger stripes. A medallion at the center features Mickey and Minnie having fun with a tiger.

Again, this tastes exactly the same as the other sugar cookie (above).

At $9 each (with a Magic Key holder discount if you have one), these treats are too expensive for what they actually are, but they’re fine and well-designed snacks.
