Swirls on the Water at Disney Springs is serving up the new “Loyal Astromech Swirl,” a BB-8 DOLE Whip mango and habanero soft-serve swirl, in honor of Star Wars Day (May the 4th).
The cone will only be available through May 31, 2023.
Loyal Astromech Swirl – $6.49
DOLE Whip Mango swirled with habanero soft-serve in a red velvet cone with toasted graham cracker crumbs, chocolate rocks, and a BB-8 edible garnish
DOLE Whip mango mixed with habanero soft-serve sounds intimidating, and this will not be for everybody. There is a lot going on in this snack, but the intrigue of spicy ice cream kept us interested.
It is definitely spicy, but the mango plays well with the habanero. All of your taste buds are activated in different ways that somehow work.
The chocolate rocks and graham crackers add a surprisingly nice texture.
The red velvet cake cone was also tasty.
If you’re going to try this unique swirl, bring a friend — there is a lot of ice cream piled on top of this cone.
Check out the Wookiee Cookie and Darth Vader Cupcake at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, too.
May the 4th
May 4 is considered Star Wars Day because “May the 4th” sounds like “May the Force (be with you).” It’s celebrated annually by “Star Wars” fans and now Disney and Lucasfilm. At Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, it’s called Black Spire Day, honoring the founding of the Batuu outpost.
A new Dok-Ondar action figure will be available on shopDisney, too. A new Sith wayfinder and Cal Kestis lightsaber hilt were released at Dok-Ondar’s today. A light-up acid spitter orb sipper is available at Ronto Roasters and Docking Bay 7. New Legacy Lightsaber hilts will arrive at Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge throughout the month of May.
Carrie Fisher will receive a posthumous star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame on Star Wars Day this year.
