Easter-themed treats from The Grand Cottage

We didn’t pick up every treat available, although we did get plenty in The Grand Combo Box — read that review here. We also picked up The Grand Egg, a Mickey Whoopie Pie, the Spring Garden Chocolate Dirt Cup, and a Hot Cross Bun.

Now, here is everything we tried at The Grand Cottage. Some of these treats are available in The Grand Combo Box, and most are also sold separately.

The Grand Egg – $18.99

The edible white chocolate egg is covered in orange sprinkles.

We took it home to crack it open to see what was inside!

Cracking the egg open, we found jelly beans mixed in with the white chocolate pieces.

We found this to be fun, but we wish there were more jellybeans.

The chocolate is white and of good quality. The beans, meanwhile, are Jelly Belly.

It was fun to break, but it needs more beans for sure!

Mickey Whoopie Pie – $7.50

The Cast Member said this was French toast-flavored, but we get mostly carrot and cinnamon.

The cake was moist, and it had the perfect icing-to-cake ratio.

The Cast Member on duty raved about this one, but we found it mediocre.

Spring Garden Chocolate Dirt Cup – $6.00

This treat had layers of chocolate cake with crunchy pearls and cookie crumbs.

It’s comparable to other chocolate dirt cups you may get elsewhere at Walt Disney World.

The cake had a good consistency, and the buttercream was not too rich. We would get this again for sure!

Hot Cross Bun – $3.50

This is like a sweet cinnamon raisin bread in bun form.

The exterior is slightly sticky, and the inside is dense. Served warm, this is excellent!

This treat was probably our favorite.

The popcorn was coated in white chocolate with powdered sugar confetti.

It also had mini marshmallows and a few M&Ms.

It’s a good sharing size, and it’s also in the Grand Box.

Chocolate Bunny – $12.00

The chocolate bunny is your classic chocolate bunny.

The bunny is large enough to break and share.

It held up well for photos but quickly broke when it was time.

Crispy Cereal Egg – $5.00

The crispy cereal egg was a crisp rice treat with a white chocolate coating.

This was a cute, themed version of a crisp rice treat, but it wasn’t anything special.

Carrot Blondie Pop – $7.00

Unfortunately, the blondie inside this pop is dry and not any particular flavor.

easter grand box 17

The icing on the outside is sweet but does not have any flavor we can pick out.

The presentation was cute, and we loved taking photos with it.

However, the execution is lacking, and we will not get it again.
