Lobster Bacon Macaroni & Cheese served in a Warm Bread Cone – $8.00

Whst it lacks in lobster it makes up for in cheesy goodness. The little lobster there was tasted fresh, but the mac and cheese is a good comfort food on its own. Ther bread cone is what you’d expect if you’ve had a cone-shaped snack at Walt Disney World, a bit flavorless. I still enjoyed this though.

*NEW* Paintbrush Churros: Cinnamon Sugar Churros Dipped in Colorful White Chocolate – $6.25

I usually hate Walt Disney World churros, but these do not taste like Walt Disney World churros. The are crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, and well-complimented by the white chocolate. I just wish there was more chocolate to dip them is as the uncovered bites aren’t as amazing as those combining the cinnamon and sweet flavors.

*NEW* Banfi Rosa Regale Sparkling Red, Piedmont ($18/bottle) – $10.00

Banfi Wines describes their Rosa Regale Sparkling Red as having a “festive cranberry” color, with an “aromatic [bouquet] with hints of raspberries, strawberries and rose petals.” The taste includes “fresh raspberries, with crisp acidity, enticing the palate with an initial softness, graduating to a clean and dry finish.”

Pancake Milkshake – $5.00

Epcot Food & Wine 2018 Taste Track Pancake Milkshake Wreck-It Ralph Breaks the Internet
Pancake Milkshake – $5.00

Remember the first Ralph Breaks the Internet trailer that premiered last year? If you don’t you can watch it here. There’s a bit at the end where Ralph and Vanellope get into a mobile game where ‘the bunny gets the pancake, the kitty gets the milkshake’. Epcot decided rather than give you pancakes and milkshakes, that they would combine them into this amazing creation. It sounds almost too good to be true and often these treats we look forward to for weeks end up being a disappointment in some way.  However, this one wasn’t. There’s a profound taste of cake batter in the milkshake which makes it really enjoyable. It’s almost like a birthday cake shake, but the taste is just different enough that you might think you were drinking a freshly made pancake.
