Snacks of all different kinds are plentiful around Walt Disney World in all four parks. There is a snack for everyone’s taste. Upon my recent trip to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, my family and I indulged in the box tarts from Woody’s Lunch Box.
These may be called box tarts, but they are essentially rectangular Pop Tarts. Obviously, the name Pop Tart is trademarked, so Disney needed a different name, hence box tart.
There are a variety of flavors to choose from:
- Banana-Peanut Butter Fudge Lunch Box Tart which Disney describes as Peanut Butter and Chocolate Fudge Stuffed pastry coated in Banana fondant, banana chips, and Rainbow Sprinkles
- Chocolate- Hazelnut Lunch Box Tart describes as chocolate-hazelnut stuffed pastry in Maple fondant and Candied Bacon
- Lemon-Blueberry Lunch Box Tart described to have Blueberry filling, frosting, and a taste of lemon
- Raspberry Lunch Box Tart described as Raspberry Marmalade stuffed pastry coated in a strawberry fondant and crispy pearls
- LIMITED EDITION FOR Pride Month the Pride Lunch Box Tart described as a Guava-filled pastry coated in purple Vanilla fondant topped with rainbow sprinkles, a chocolate Mickey, and a Sour Ribbon Candy
On previous visits, I have always gotten the Raspberry Lunch Box Tart because it and the Chocolate-Hazelnut were the only options. I’m not a fan of bacon atop something sweet. Perhaps, I’ll give it a try next time I visit just to have an opinion on it. On this visit, I didn’t see the Lemon-Blueberry Box Tart on the mobile ordering menu, but I will certainly give it a try the next time I visit Hollywood Studios.
Reviews of the three that I can talk about:
- Raspberry Lunch Box Tart is very sweet yet tasty. When I say sweet, it’s intensely sweet. The crispy balls atop add a nice crunch to the box tart. The outside pastry tastes very much like a sugar cookie.
- Banana-Peanut Butter Fudge Box Tart was not my favorite. It boasts to having Banana flavors in it or even on it. I didn’t get the banana flavor even with the banana chips. Again, the pastry (which I assume is the same) tastes like a sugar cookie. I was warned by the cast member that gave it to me that it had peanuts in it. This pastry was not kid approved by either one of my children. I also was not a huge fan of it. I saved a bit for my husband, and his opinion was not different from my own. I would not recommend this one. There are better ones; the Raspberry one is better.
- Pride Box Tart was devoured by both of my children. We split it three ways. The pastry tastes the same that it does from the previous tarts. I enjoyed this one much better than the Banana-Chocolate. It was sweet, but it wasn’t as sweet as the Raspberry one. The Sour Candy Ribbon added a different flavor and flare to the box tart. I recommend this box tart. Enjoy it during Pride Month.
I am going to say that the box tarts are not my favorite Disney snack, but they are delicious. Give one a try the next time you visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios. They are decently priced at $4.29 each.
Have you ever had a box tart at Woody’s Lunch Box? What are your thoughts?
