This is terrible, and we are not being dramatic.

The orange curd is like candied orange.

The spiced milk chocolate tart was like a stale cookie.

Only a minimal amount of spice comes through, and it was very dry.

The pomegranate molasses whipped cream is so tart it made us pucker.

This is just too sour of a treat. The flavors don’t fit well together. The pomegranate and orange don’t mix. This is a hard pass.

Spiced Caramel Apple with Glow Cube – $15

Fireball Cinnamon Whisky, apple cider, cranberry, and salted caramel

This tastes like apple juice.

A hint of cinnamon comes in at the end, thanks to the Fireball.

Though cranberry is listed as an ingredient, we didn’t taste any.

We think it needs another shot of Fireball, but it’s not a bad spiked juice.

The glow “cube” looks like an orange piece of Mickey-shaped Halloween candy.

It’s a cute souvenir.

This is returning from 2021 sans whisky.

The cider was pretty sweet, and the rim was coated with cinnamon sugar.

The green apple boba was pretty good, but it can be difficult to get the boba through the straw. It’s fine, but not something we will be running back to have again.

All of these will be available through October 31, 2022.
