As we have entered the month of December, the year 2022 will be ending soon. Since Christmas Day and New Year’s Day fall on a Sunday this year, I suspect the “Top Three” articles will make a lot of references to those holidays and traditions at that time. For this week’s three suggestions, I’ll use three “food fests” happening this week to frame the article.
December 4ththe earns the title of “National Cookie Day”. Yes, many people and Cookie Monster think that every day is cookie day. Still, Universal Orlando designed a cookie for everyone this year for its holiday celebration. The “Vegan Butter Snowflake Cookie” costs $3.79. This can be found at the Croissant Moon Bakery in Islands of Adventure. This qualifies as one of the best desserts Universal Orlando has ever sold. I know many of my esteemed colleagues in the theme park media enjoyed this gift. If you think it looks more like a mini cake, you’re not alone.
December 8ththe, we can all celebrate National Chocolate Brownie Day. Universal Orlando offers various chocolate brownies in its quick-service and full-service dining options. However, I think your best option to celebrate this day would be at Toothsome Chocolate Emporium and Savory Feast Kitchen. If you have read many of my Universal Orlando food reviews, then you know that I visit Toothsome frequently. I commonly suggest having sundaes over milkshakes. In this case, that pattern is true. Toothsome offers a “Chocolate Brownie Bark” ice cream for $12.50. Additionally, this sundae presents guests with some chocolate ice cream, chocolate brownies, chocolate whipped topping, chocolate sauce, chocolate brownie crust, and chocolate chips to top it off. However, Toothsome also sells a “Brownie” shake if you prefer.
December 9theThe day of the confectionery arrives. On National Pastry Day, a visit to the TODAY Café is a logical choice. For this example, you can choose from the myriad of cakes here. Personally I would suggest the “Lemon Pie” or the “Smores Croissant”. If TODAY Café doesn’t fit into your schedule, you can always visit Croissant Moon Bakery at Islands of Adventure.
Thanks for joining me on this adventure exploring this week’s top three. Feel free to leave a comment here if you came to enjoy one of these suggestions.
As always, eat like you mean it!
