Test 0615: Fowl Play – $14.49
BBQ Turkey Leg and Red Particle Sides (Marble Potato Salad & Pickled Vegetables)
This is the last word in Disney Parks’ turkey legs. They have taken the traditional jumbo turkey leg, slathered it in a nice barbecue rub, and cooked it low and slow with barbecue sauce for the finish.
It’s more tender and crispy at the edges and overall more flavorful than the traditional turkey leg. It does have a modicum of spice, which may not be for everybody, but at no point does it get overwhelming.
The pickled vegetables on the side have an acidity to help cut through the sweet sticky barbecue sauce. And the potato salad composed of whole roasted potatoes doused in a potato salad dressing is a unique take on a classic side dish.
As good as all of this is, the big surprise star is the two little onion rings stabbed into the top of the turkey leg. They’re delicious and subtly spiced, making for a fantastic garnish and side dish.
We thoroughly enjoyed this plate and will definitely be back for it soon.
Experiment 0341: Red, White, and Blue Slush – $5.99
Lemon-Lime and Blue Raspberry Slush topped with Grenadine and Cherry Flavor-filled Boba
This is a relatively typical slush, though not as sweet as they can be elsewhere. That is a good thing because they are usually overpoweringly sweet and this one is more comfortably sweet.
The lemon-lime ice helps to cut through some of the sugariness. The predominant flavor overall, however, is artificial blue raspberry flavor.
The boba brings a hint of cherry now and again, which is pleasant although still artificial.
For anyone who enjoys a good slush, it may be in your wheelhouse. But it was not spectacular, and we wouldn’t go out of our way for it.
