A new ‘The Little Mermaid’ milk shake — inspired by its live-action movie — has arrived at Hollywood Scoops at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. And with an odd flavor profile that may be polarizing.
‘The Little Mermaid’ Milk Shake – $9.49
Vanilla, Mango, Guava, and Ginger Milk Shake topped with Whipped Cream and a Pineapple-Guava Seashell Cake
We stopped by Hollywood Scoops on Sunset Boulevard at Disney’s Hollywood Studios today and noticed there was a new milk shake to celebrate the release of the live-action ‘The Little Mermaid’ movie. Naturally, we decided to try it so we can give you our thoughts.
The milk shake itself, is visually very aesthetically pleasing. It features tones of blue and purple to mimic the ocean. We thought that there was an almost overwhelming amount of whipped cream. Once we were handed the milk shake, the whipped cream immediately started falling off the side of the cup.
The blue and purple sprinkle sugar around the rim was a nice touch.
Upon taking our first sip, we noticed that the most prominent flavor is ginger. If you are not a fan of ginger, don’t get this because it has a very strong ginger taste. After a few more sips, we started to taste the mango. Although guava is listed as an ingredient, we were unable to detect it.
This mostly tasted like a ginger and vanilla milkshake, which we found to be an odd pairing.
The seashell cake topper was wrapped in a light purple fondant. Unfortunately, because of the amount of whipped cream on top, it quickly submerged into the milk shake.
The cake itself was very moist. Visually, it looks like it would have been a red velvet cake, but is was not. We found the cake to be awful. It was described as pineapple and guava, but we didn’t taste either of those flavors. It was very bland and flavorless. We honestly thought it tasted like a plain vanilla cupcake.
Overall, we would not recommend this milkshake, unless you are buying it only for its visual appeal.
