*NEW* Beignet aux Trois Fromages: Warm Beignet filled with Three Cheeses – $5.75

Beignet aux Trois Fromages: Warm Beignet filled with Three Cheeses – $5.75

This was good but strange. The dough tastes like a standard, slightly sweet doughnut, and maybe slightly undercooked. The cheese mixture was delicious, creamy, and smooth. It was a nice blend of cheese flavors. However, the cheese and doughnut together were a weird combination. It wasn’t exactly bad, just odd.

Croissant aux Escargots: Escargot Croissant with Garlic and Parsley – $6.25

Croissant aux Escargots: Escargot Croissant with Garlic and Parsley – $6.25

The escargots are prepared by the expert chefs in France to basically become nothing but garlic and butter. They’re placed inside of the croissant that’s topped with a garlic/parsley butter. This may not be the healthiest option at the festival, but it is unique and delicious. We’re still crazy about it after all these years.

*NEW* Coq au Vin, Pommes Dauphine: Chicken braised in Burgundy Wine with Bacon and Puffed Potatoes – $6.25

This was the best of the booth. The chicken was tender but firm. The sauce was delicious and the red wine flavor was present but not overwhelming. The bacon was soft, not crispy, but added a great flavor along with the pearl onions. The puffed potatoes were a nice compliment with a crispy texture and salty flavor.

*NEW* Crème BrĂ»lĂ©e au Grand Mariner: Vanilla Crème BrĂ»lĂ©e with Grand Marnier Liqueur ($32/bottle) (Contains Alcohol) – $5.50

This was weird. The custard was really thin and runny, definitely not the consistency it should be. The Grand Marnier flavor was very strong, almost too strong. The crystallized sugar was at least as it should be.

*NEW* Evian Sparkling Cucumber and Mint Water with Magnesium and Zinc (Non-Alcoholic) – $4.75

Evian Sparkling Cucumber and Mint Water with Magnesium and Zinc (Non-Alcoholic) – $4.75

This is refreshing with light cucumber and mint flavors. If you like these flavors it’s fine and a nice alternative to plain bottled water, but don’t go out of your way for this.

*NEW* Strawberry Rose Mimosa: Pol Remy Sparkling Wine ($7/bottle), Orange Juice, and Monin Strawberry Rose – $8.50

Strawberry Rose Mimosa: Pol Remy Sparkling Wine ($7/bottle), Orange Juice, and Monin Strawberry Rose – $8.50

This was good, but nothing mind-blowing. It’s a standard mimosa with sparkling wine and orange juice, but with a hint of strawberry. It’s tasty and refreshing, but ultimately forgettable.

RosĂ© PĂ©tillant MĂ©thode Traditionnelle Champenoise: RosĂ© Sparkling Wine, Pink Flamingo ($16/bottle) – $12.50

Yorkshire Wines and Spirits describes this sparkling RosĂ©: “A treat for the eye: this sparkling Pink Flamingo RosĂ© impresses with its brightness and delicate pale salmon rose color. Its sparkle is expressed elegantly in very fine bubbles. A treat for the nose: complex, as behind beautiful little white flower and violet floral notes, the wine opens up into aromas of delicate citrus mixed with wild little red berries. Everything is amplified by the great freshness one so expects in a sparkling wine.”

*NEW* Chardonnay, Louis de Camponac ($10/bottle) – $5.00

British grocery store Tesco describes this Chardonnay: “This white wine has a clear and bright yellow hue with aromas of white fruits. The palate is bursting with flavor and [fruitiness].”

*NEW* Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot Blend, Bordeaux, Château de PrieurĂ© ($50/bottle) – $6.00

The Wine Cellar Insider describes this blend, also known as St. Emilion Bordeaux, as being “dark garnet in color, the wine offers flowers, spice, licorice, stones and plum in the nose, Soft, silky and seductive, with a medium-bodied palate, the finish carries on with freshness and purity in the fruits as well as a saline quality in the finish.”

La Passion Martini Slushy: Vodka, Grey Goose Le Citron Vodka, Cranberry and Passion Fruit Juice (80 proof, $30/750ml) – $12.50

We love this frozen beverage. It’s a little expensive but the taste and booziness of the drink are well-warranted. It’s cool, refreshing, and tastes fruity enough to be enjoyable without being too sweet.
