5) Matterhorn Macaroon
Right at the end of Main Street U.S.A. you’ll find Jolly Holiday Bakery on the left hand side. One of the options at the Jolly Holiday Bakery is the Matterhorn Macaroon. I am not a fan of coconut flavored desserts, but the Matterhorn Macaroon is the exception to that rule. The Jolly Holiday Bakery is the perfect location to enjoy this crumbly dessert, as you have a perfect view to overlook the Matterhorn Bobsled attraction while you enjoy the treat.
4) Strawberry Bundt Cake
Many of these treats have big fan followings, so you might be surprised to see the lesser mentioned Strawberry Bundt Cake on this list, but it is fantastic! The cake is fluffy, moist, and super flavorful. The light amount of frosting on top makes it sweet, but isn’t too sugary. After my most recent trip to Disneyland, the Strawberry Bundt Cake became my new favorite treat. Like the Matterhorn Macaroon, this tasty treat can also be found at the Jolly Holiday Bakery. So, if you haven’t already tried it, I highly suggest it! The Strawberry Bundt Cake is hard to share, because if you look away your friends and family will eat it all. So, while this might not be an iconic Disneyland snack, it makes the list purely on how scrumptious it is!
3) Cozy Cone Motel Cookies and Cream Churro
If you are a Walt Disney World vacationer, you most likely have had a classic cinnamon sugar churro, but in Disney California Adventure you can purchase a cookies and cream churro! If you like Oreos and classic cinnamon sugar churros, then you’ll love the Cozy Cone Motel cookies and cream churro! The outside is the cookie breading, while the inside is filled with the familiar Oreo filling! This cookies and cream twist on an iconic treat makes it something you have to try, even if it is simply to compare it to the classic snack!
2) Corn Dog
They might be unhealthy but the corn dogs at the Little Red Wagon on Main Street U.S.A. in Disneyland are fresh, hot, and mouthwatering! At least once during a Disneyland vacation you must replace one of your meals with a Little Red Wagon corn dog. Some like to dip it in ketchup or mustard; I simply like the corn dog just as it is. The deep fried shell surrounding the corn dog is crispy, and the breading and hotdog on the inside are warm and delicious! Personally, I like take my corn dog and sit in the hub, right in front of the Partners Statue, and just enjoy the surroundings while I take in the atmosphere!
1) Mint Julep
Tucked away in New Orleans Square is the the Mint Julep Bar. This bar serves non-alcoholic Mint Juleps that are a must do when visiting Disneyland. There is something quintessentially Disneyland about the Mint Julep that encapsulates the charm and the magic of Disneyland Park. I can’t help myself from buying at least one Mint Julep every day of my vacation. Because they are non-alcoholic, they are a fun drink for everyone in the family, but the mint flavor typically is enjoyed by adults more than children.
