While we’re often recommending fresh fruit, water and other healthful snacks in the Disney Parks, when you’re hungry and on the go, sometimes a cold, crunchy snack just isn’t … well … satisfying.
At Disneyland park, we finally got around to trying the new Village Haus chicken sausage in a pretzel roll, topped with sauerkraut. A spicy mustard can be added for an extra kick. The very thought conjured up a satisfying dose of carbs and protein, with a touch of “healthful” (chicken sausage has a tad less fat than its pork counterpart).
Oh, it was the roll that had us wanting more – soft on the inside, crunchy on the outside. The generous quarter-pound sausage is more Italian than German, but we didn’t mind the culinary cultural exchange. If you gotta have a bratwurst, head to nearby Troubadour Treats next to Princess Fantasy Faire, served on the same pretzel roll.
Disneyland Chef Chris Maggetti worked with a local bakery to come up with the 5-inch pretzel roll, sliced and warm and full of deliciousness. “The bread has a terrific pretzel flavor and caramel color,” said Chris, who is also a food product development manager at Disneyland Resort.
You can opt for a side of fresh fruit – we go for fries. And then do our best to walk it off. Have you tried the pretzel roll – or do you have another quick bite at the Disneyland Resort that makes you happy?
