Goofy's Candy Company
Whether or not you have a sweet tooth, you have to visit Goofy's Candy Company in the Downtown Disney Marketplace. Its so much more than a candy store.
It's bright and colorful, as you'd expect. There are rows and rows of self serve bins where you can get treats at $2.98 a quarter pound. (A limited selection of sugar free candies are available.)
There are pre-packaged candies and novelties for sale as well as glass displays filled with tempting confections.
What sets Goofy's Candy Company apart is that you can create your own snack. You get an order slip and choose one of the following as your base:
Apple - $5.50
Rice Krispie Treat - $3.00
3 Pretzel Rods - $3.50
4 Marshmallows - $2.50
Gingerbread Cookies - $3.50
Included in the price is a coating and your choice of toppings. To start, you can have your treat dipped in Caramel, Milk Chocolate or Dark Chocolate.
The Topping choices are: Assorted Sprinkles, Mini M&M's, Peanut Butter Chips, Chopped Peanuts, Chopped Pecans, Chopped Walnuts, Sliced Almonds, Cinnamon and Sugar, Dark and White Chocolate Chips, Crushed Oreo Cookie Crumbs, Crushed Butterfingers, Reese's Pieces, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Trail Mix, Coconut. You get one topping free,additional toppings are $1.00 each.
You can select a Drizzle: Milk Chocolate, White Chocolate, Dark Chocolate.
You turn your order in at the counter and your one of a kind treat is freshly prepared. Once its done, your name is called and you can enjoy your special snack.
If you're thirsty for a slushie and want a unique souvenir, get the "Build-A-Cup" over at Goofy's Glaciers. For $8.00 you get a hat and feet. You can choose from Stitch, Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Princess, or you can mix and match.
You take your hat/shoe pieces to the counter where you can purchase a cup with your choice of slushie for $3.69. The cup is fitted in the feet, the hat is popped on top, a straw is plunked in and you're all set! Refills are $3.00.
For those of you with dietary restrictions, it wasn't easy but I did spot a very limited number of sugar free selections. You may want to ask where they are to save time looking at row after row of candies.
While I resisted temptation, I'm glad that I stopped in to see it. Disney has found a new way to bring a smile to your day.
