REVIEW: Thanks-mas Sandwich, Santa Hat Macaron & More at Jolly Holiday Bakery Café – Holidays 2019 at Disneyland Park
It’s looking like a very jolly holiday at Jolly Holiday Bakery Café this year, with items like the Thanks-mas Sandwich, the Santa Hat Macaron, and Eggnog Latte Cheesecake on the menu! No need to jump into a painting, we’ll bring the review to you!
Jolly Holiday Bakery is known for their sweet treats and sandwiches.
Thanks-Mas Sandwich (Oven-Roasted Turkey, Stuffing, Gravy, and Cranberry Sauce on Rustic Bread) – $10.99
This meal is perfect for any person craving that Thanksgiving meal. With turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce, taking a bite of this will bring back all those warm holiday memories. The turkey was delicious, and the stuffing was tender and had a perfect consistency. The cranberry sauce topped everything with a rich taste.
The bread added a nice crunch and was easy to bite into.
Here’s a look at inside the sandwich. We do wish the cranberry sauce was spread across everything.
Butternut Squash Soup – $5.99
This soup was the perfect addition to the Thanks-mas Sandwich. While the color doesn’t look too appetizing, the taste told a different story. The soup was sweet and creamy. This is something we would try again.
Snowman Shortbread Cookie – $3.99
This cookie is back from years past. It is simple, but still delicious. The frosting gives the shortbread a sugar cookie like quality that makes this treat one that will be a winner for the entirety of the holiday season.
Santa Hat Macaron (with White Mint Filling and Chocolate Ganache) – $5.99
This item is also a comeback from last year. It is filled with mint and chocolate ganache. If you are a fan of candies akin to Junior Mints, then this is the treat for you. On the flip side, if you are not a fan of Junior Mint type candies then this is probably one you can skip without regret.
Eggnog Latte Cheesecake (with White Chocolate Mousse Foam and a Sprinkling of Nutmeg) – $5.79
This cheesecake was probably our least favorite holiday item from Jolly Holiday. The cheesecake had a strange latte taste mixed with just a hint of eggnog. It really was an odd flavor. Probably not the greatest use of your hard-earned money unless you are a die hard eggnog latte and cheesecake fan.
Holiday Cupcake (Vanilla Bean Cupcake Filled with Red and Green Chocolate Pieces, finished with Green and White-Swirled White Chocolate Mousse, and Chocolate Swirl Candy Pieces) – $6.99
This cupcake is a sugar rush and then some. It is filled with red and green chocolate candy pieces and topped with green and white swirled white chocolate mousse and round chocolate swirl candy pieces. It has quite a bit of frosting with a small vanilla cupcake hiding underneath. We would say “pass” on this unless you have a pressing need for sugar or just want a social media worthy picture of a Disney dessert.
Holiday Brownie (topped with White Chocolate Mousse and Sprinkles and Finished with Chocolate Presents and a Christmas Tree) – $4.99
This brownie comes topped with white chocolate mousse, sprinkles, white chocolate presents, and a festive candy Christmas tree. This was a really solid brownie once you get through the added layers of sugar. Mind you, those layers of sugar make this brownie uncontrollably cute to look at before you eat it. This is definitely a treat you should grab if you like brownies!
Gingerbread Man Cookie – $4.99
This gingerbread cookie is not to be confused with a ginger snap or ginger crisp styled cookie. It is soft and quite delicious. We’d add in the caveat that you probably would have to be a fan of gingerbread cookies for this cookie to be worthy of buying. Solid cookie, though not spectacular.
These items are only available November 8th, 2019 – Jaunary 6th, 2020. And if that wasn’t enough, a Pumpkin Muffin and a Dutch Apple Cinnamon Muffin will join the lineup starting December 1st! You can check out the complete listing of holiday food items at Disneyland Park here!
