5 Must-Eat Treats at EPCOT World Showcase

10 Comments

So you’re strolling through the World Showcase in EPCOT, possibly sipping some adult beverages along the way. Which snacks are worth your calories and taste buds as you tour the World? I’ll count down my 5 favorites, though I’m sure I’m forgetting something…

5. French Fries in the American Pavilion

I know, fries may seem a little boring. But I’m very picky about fries, and these are pretty darned good, especially when you’re walking from the direction of Germany with a beer in your hand. They’re hot, crispy, salty, and good dipped in honey mustard. Also good with frozen Coke, which can be had at the American Pavilion. (Like how I got an extra snack in there?)

4. Chocolate/caramel-dipped strawberry from Karamell-Kuche in the German Pavilion

This needs no explanation. Werther’s caramel, milk chocolate, big ripe strawberry.

3. Kaki-Gori with cream, Japan Pavilion

This is one of the most refreshing, delicious things you can eat on a hot Florida day. If you’re from Louisiana or Mississippi, you may recognize this – it’s the closest I’ve had to a snowball outside of Louisiana. The ice is shaved very fine and soft, with delicious, high-quality fruit syrup, with or without cream. Oddly, this is the orange flavor. It’s very red. And very good.

2. School Bread, Kringla Bakeri og Cafe in the Norway Pavilion

Ahhhh….school bread. It has a cult-like following, and with good reason. So what is it? Imagine a raised yeast doughnut with no hole, filled with vanilla pastry cream, and topped with icing and toasted coconut. Perfection in its simplicity.

And MouseChow’s favorite World Showcase snack is…..{drumroll please}…

1. Scotch egg at Rose and Crown Pub, UK Pavilion

Wow, my arteries are hardening just thinking about this scrumminess. The Scotch egg is a hard-boiled egg, wrapped in sausage, and deep fried. It’s served with fried bread, mustard sauce, and a small green lightly-dressed salad. The sausage is very nicely spiced, and it’s all a bit salty, greasy, and exactly perfect with a pint of Bass ale.

It sure was hard to narrow this list down to 5! I can think of several I left out that could easily have made it, and I’m sure you can too. So what did I miss? Feel free to discuss while I sit here in the corner with my Scotch egg.
