Worth the Price?
This ice cream sandwich was clearly made to serve to the dinosaurs that inhabit Dinoland because it is huge! This thing is larger than a quarter-pound cheeseburger and certainly stands as tall.
Make sure you have a buddy (or two) to help you finish this snack. I was really happy with this portion size since this is one of the pricier holiday treats available right now. It felt like we got our money’s worth in sugary goodness.
The flavors in this sandwich have been cleverly balanced. The vanilla ice cream has a distinct vanilla taste, so it isn’t too bland. But at the same time, it’s not too sweet either.
On the day we were at Animal Kingdom, it was rather hot out, so the lightness of the vanilla offered some refreshment.
The pumpkin cookies, while rich, had a decent bite of holiday spice to them to cut the sweetness. There are actually little chunks of sugar dotting the surface of the cookie.
Balance out your bites with vanilla ice cream, because a lot of this cookie at once could overload your sugar senses.
Those little fall leaf sprinkles aren’t just for show! We really appreciated the crunch that the offered.
When compared to the mushy-ness of the ice cream and soft cookie, those sprinkles are working overtime to balance the texture of this snack.
With the, honestly, huge portion size and delightful pumpkin flavor, we think that you’re going to get exactly what you’re looking for when you see this treat on the menu.
Definitely recommended, but don’t attempt this one alone! Use the buddy system.
