While writing Theme Parks, I noticed that the reviews for the items I tried at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party were mostly negative. This meal review revolves around ice cream, the safest thing to eat in the Magic Kingdom. For the Halloween season, Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies offers her two special menus of her items. You can buy “Not So Poison Apple Milkshake”. However, if I were to pick up some Halloween-themed treats at Magic Kingdom, I would choose the “Sweet Candy Corn Soft Serve Swirl Cone”.
The price for this ice cream cone is $5.49. This can be purchased during Mickey’s not-so-scary Halloween parties and during normal park hours. This dessert features swirls of sweet corn and vanilla soft serve topped with small candy corn chocolate bows. If this description doesn’t sound more extravagant than Magic Kingdom’s other Halloween-themed items, we’ve explained it correctly.
Nothing about this dessert ranks as incredible. Still, with one perhaps unwarranted exception, there’s nothing bad about this dessert either. The combination of vanilla and sweet corn soft serve makes it taste like candy corn. The candy corn bow chocolate pieces are a nice addition to your photo and general look. However, this “bow” seemed rather small for a signature element of this dessert. The candy pieces also tasted average. With so many Halloween treats this year featuring chunks of white chocolate, this tastes just right.
The best aspect of this treat has to do with the portion size. Maybe I was facing weakening taste buds after “Hades Hot Dog”. Still, this ice cream cone fills a reasonable portion size. Actually, I didn’t finish it all.
This leads to the biggest drawback of this ice cream cone. The main reason I didn’t finish this treat had to do with serving ice cream in Florida. It may have been past 10pm when I ordered this, but the temperature melted the ice cream quickly.The poor standard cone holding the ice cream couldn’t take it. Now you can order in a bowl. It might be a wise choice to have the ice cream melt all over your hand as you take a picture and try to eat it.
Nonetheless, this Halloween treat ranks among the simplest. As always, eat like you mean it!
