REVIEW: Sweetheart Strawberry Beignets – Valentine’s Month at Disneyland Park
Everyone loves iconic Disney treats. One could argue that the Mickey-shaped beignets are one of the more iconic treats in Disneyland. So how do you make an already iconic treat more desirable? You add strawberry flavoring to the powdered sugar. This strawberry-flavored beignet option is available during Disneyland’s Valentine’s Month Celebration at the Mint Julep Bar in Disneyland Park.
Sweetheart Strawberry Beignets – 3 for $5.49
These strawberry beignets look very similar to traditional beignets. You can definitely tell the difference when you bite into them. I’m a bit of a beignet snob and will often tell people that I prefer the beignets at Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen Express in Downtown Disney to Disneyland’s beignets. I prefer these strawberry beignets to the traditional ones served by Mint Julep. The strawberry flavor is a natural pairing with the powdered sugar. I highly recommend grabbing yourself some of these powdery treats before they go away.
The Disney Parks Blog advertised these beignets as being chocolate-covered strawberry beignets, but I could not detect any chocolate in the powder. I think they were straight-up strawberry beignets. I’m not sure what happened there with that advertising or if it will change in the future. In any case, let us know what you thought about these Mickey-shaped treats if you tried them.
