REVIEW: Impossible Plant-Based Dishes Arrive at Avocado Time for the 2023 Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival

Avocados are considered a superfood, with 20 vitamins, minerals, and fiber all packed inside. Considering it’s an incredibly versatile fruit (yes, it’s a fruit), this naturally pairs well with other plant-based food. For the 2023 Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival, at the Avocado Time marketplace, you can find Impossible options and avocados together.

*NEW* Impossible Nacho Mac & Cheese – $7.00

Cheddar Mac featuring Seasoned Impossible Ground Beef, Tomatoes, Olives, Jalapeños and Guacamole

This is where Impossible can really shine. The “beef” is perfectly integrated into a dish with great flavors. With all that’s in this, we couldn’t tell that this wasn’t ground beef. For the portion size, it’s an exceptional value, though that may change as the festival presses on.

*NEW* Impossible Al Pastor Taco – $7.25

Al Pastor Taco featuring Impossible Pork with Grilled Pineapple and Avocado-Tomatillo Sauce

On the other hand, this was bad. Calling it al pastor is a scam to get you to buy it. It tastes more like spicy chorizo than al pastor pork. The amount of pineapple is excessive and overpowering. Even worse, it’s a tiny portion. It doesn’t make sense that this costs more than the far-heartier mac & cheese. This is a hard pass.

*NEW* Blackberry-Lavender Lemonade – $6.50

Blackberry Purée and Syrup, Lavender Syrup, Pineapple & Lemon Juices, garnished with a Lemon Wheel

The flavor of lavender is very powerful here, but not in a bad way. If you like lavender, you’ll love this non-alcoholic offering.

The 2023 Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival will be running from March 3 to April 25, 2023.
