There’s no doubt about it – fall is in the air, Halloween is just around the corner, pumpkin carving is nearly underway, and our candy makers have a few tricks up their sleeves to get everyone in the spirit of the season. Or in this case, “treats.”
I had the chance to meet with David Ramirez, Candy Production Manager, who works closely with the Disney Theme Park Merchandise product development team and candy makers to create ‘ghoulish delights’ for Disney fans to enjoy. Here are a few things he told us we should keep an eye out for, if you’re in the neighborhood.
Skull Apple – Heads will roll for this particular gooey caramel and white chocolate dipped apple, which was themed after the apple featured in the animated film “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.” Tip: Only available at the Disneyland Resort.
Dirt and Worms – You will “dig” this particular apple, which is covered in cookie crumble and drizzled with white chocolate.
What other Halloween-inspired creations can you treat yourself to? How about our Pumpkin Mickey Mouse Apples or Minnie Mouse Witch Hat Apples?
For the more “spirited” bunch, there are Ghost Pretzels and Ghost Marshmallows, which I would say are to die for … but that’s just me. Take a look:
A few other things I’m choosing to throw in to the Halloween bucket this year are our goth goodies, which include bag of bones candies and candy corn, among others, as well as a special popcorn tin and pumpkin seed brittle. To keep you coming back for more, look for our pumpkin fudge in the coming weeks.
Curious about whether we have anything sugar free? We certainly do. Selections vary, but can be found at many of our candy locations throughout the park.
Here are a few locations where you can find some of the boo-tiful goodies featured here: Trolley Treats (Disney California Adventure park); Candy Palace (Disneyland park) and Marceline’s Confectionery (Downtown Disney District).
