Top Three Things You Should Be Eating At Universal Orlando This Week (November 21st, 2021)


This week’s article, in this series, will be making a stop at Universal Orlando CityWalk first. CityWalk declares holiday season when you arrive. Near the Voodoo Doughnut location exists some pop-up food/merchandise tents known as Mistletoe Pines. That area enhances CityWalk with holiday cheer. Also, that area displays creativity in terms of using holiday themes.

However, a permanent fixture in CityWalk excels in seasonal items. Our first stop involves Voodoo Doughnut. This well themed donut shop shines bright in CityWalk. Voodoo Doughnut creates varied seasonal donuts on a regular basis. now, this holiday season they designed two different donuts. According to the store’s own website menu, these donuts are called “Holiday Gift” and “Wreath.”

“Holiday Gift” functions as a raised yeast doughnut dipped in gingerbread icing. Xavier, of Universal Food Blog, described it as a gingerbread delight. Both doughnuts cost $3.75. Based on Voodoo’s track record with seasonal doughnuts, most guests will enjoy these.

Our next stop brings us to Universal Studios Florida. We must venture to the Battery Park area. In this area, they are selling a “Holiday Leftovers” pressed sandwich. These styles of sandwiches were featured during Halloween Horror Nights this year. The sandwich showcases cranberry bread. The filling contains turkey and brie cheese. If that is not enough, you get a side of turkey gravy to dip your sandwich within. The menu price will run you $10.99.  This item receives similar initial similar guest reviews to the holiday crepes at Central Park Crepes last year. Some guests want more cranberry flavor, and some want less. Give this sandwich a try for yourself.

Now, our third stop will take us to Seuss Landing in Islands of Adventure. The Hop on Pop Ice Cream Shop has converted to selling numerous Grinch themed food items. Grinch Green Sugar Cookies fit the theming of holidays in Seuss Landing during holidays wonderfully. You can buy these green colored cookies for $3.29. In addition, you can get some ice cream in between them to form a sandwich for $5.99.  Yes, you are going to have to embrace green food coloring. Still, Grinch would be jealous of how nice the green is on these cookies.
