This week we are going to be training for the holidays. We need to build up some sugar tolerance to prepare for those decedent desserts associated with the rest of the calendar year. If you cannot enjoy theme park sugar, then I am sorry for this week’s installment. Also, if you still have way too much leftover cheap Halloween candy, these sugary treats will be far superior.
Lemon and Blueberry Crepe
This sweet crepe can be found at Central Park Crepes in Universal Studios Florida. As you might expect, this is one of the most popular crepes. This sweet crepe consists of lemon mascarpone, blueberries, powdered sugar, lemon pound cake, and whipped crème. Moreover, the appearance of this one is excellent. This crepe possesses a nice fruity balance. Once you get past most of the whipped crème on top, you discover the pound cake. Wonderfully, the lemon pound cake within the crepe adds to the flavor adventure. This treat will cost you $8.99
Dole Whip Pineapple Sorbet
This is a common treat at Universal Orlando and many other places. You can find this at Schwab’s in Universal Studios Florida and Wimpy’s in Islands of Adventure as your primary in-park options. The cost is $3.99 for a cup and $4.49 for a cone.
Now, you cannot get all the variations of traditional Dole Whip that have popped up in recent years. However, I find the taste to be very nice at Universal Orlando. It also tastes much better with my Premier annual pass discount; which makes it $3.40 before tax.
The Salted Caramel Cookie Sandwich
A few days ago, I was scrolling through my social media trying to find something. As I did that, I noticed a post from my friend Xavier at Universal Food Blog. He took a photo of this treat that you can find at the Toothsome Chocolate Emporium and Savory Feast Kitchen in CityWalk.
This is described as two super soft chocolate cookies with salted caramel filled in between forming the sandwich. The initial reviews I have heard are positive. This location has been creative with their use of salted caramel so this will probably be another in that line of success.
If you are eliminating sugar from you diet after Halloween, I respect that. However, if not, these will be an excellent way to engage your sweet tooth this week or any week.
