REVIEW: Tres Leches Hard Float, Chocolate & Peppermint Ice Cream Sundae and Bar from Clarabelle’s Hand-Scooped Ice Cream in Disney California Adventure

This holiday season, Clarabelle’s Hand-Scooped Ice Cream in Disney California Adventure is offering up old favorites and something brand new!


Tres Leches Hard Float — $15.50

Stone Xocoveza Tres Leches Stout served with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce


This was very good. It’s a fun beer float option for the kid and adult in you. (But only the adult should drink it.)


The tres leches stout is easy to drink and just tastes like a vanilla stout.


There’s a generous portion of fresh vanilla ice cream that melts in nicely for a creamy vanilla beer concoction. If you don’t enjoy stout beer, skip this, but otherwise adults will likely enjoy this.

Chocolate & Peppermint Ice Cream Sundae — $7.99

Chocolate Peppermint Ice Cream Sundae

If you’re a big fan of peppermint, be sure to check out this sundae. This is a dream come true. Delicious scoops of vanilla and chocolate ice cream come together in a chocolate-dipped waffle bowl. The bowl also features lots of crushed peppermint. On top of your ice cream, you’ll find whipped cream, more crushed peppermint, and two chocolate-dipped cookies. Think of the cookies to be just like Oreos. If you’re not the biggest peppermint fan, you want to stay away from eating the top of the waffle bowl, which tastes like you’re biting into a candy cane. The peppermint has a very strong and overpowering taste, so the waffle and chocolate taste at the top of the bowl are barely noticeable.

Chocolate-Peppermint Bar — $5.69

Chocolate Peppermint Bar

This is a little bit more customizable than the sundae. For the bar, you can decide if you want the coating to be milk chocolate or dark chocolate. After choosing your coating, you can choose between chocolate or vanilla ice cream for the inside of the bar. We went with the dark chocolate coating and vanilla ice cream. Your mileage may vary when it comes to taste depending on how you customize your bar, but we found it was worth it.
