Walt Disney World Castle

A few months ago I was fortunate enough to join my family on a vacation to Walt Disney World. I was excited to go for many reasons, but one of the biggest was the opportunity to try and find all the interesting candy Disney World had to offer!

Once in the parks, I noticed that there was a pretty standard selection that was offered in all the stores and gift shops (excluding Epcot’s World Showcase, and that’s another entry in itself!). There were a few “normal” candy bars there, like Snickers (can anyone vouch this for me? Remember any others?) and the “standard” theme park fare, like cotton candy (which was so good!).

Despite all the sweets I could choose from, I was most interested in the candy that Disney World offered exclusively. There was a lot to choose from. There was a whole line of bags of lollipops, hard candies, and gummi worms that had Goofy all over them. Mickey laid claim to chocolate with bags of malt balls, chocolate caramels and a few chocolate bars. The Disney Princesses’ weren’t left out either, with beautifully packaged chocolates and lollipops. Pirates of the Caribbean had their cut of stuff too, like a bag of Skull Lollipops.

Mickey's Fruit Chews
Mickey’s Chewy Fruit Flavored Candy

I grabbed these since they looked similar to Starbursts, which I love. I also considered it pretty safe, since it’s easy to make bad chocolate and fruit chews seemed harder to mess up. Oh, how wrong I was.

The package lists watermelon, green apple, lemon, and cherry as flavors, but when I opened it up and poured out the contents there were six different colored candies! Looks like whoever designed the package couldn’t count. Along with the flavors listed, there were additional strawberry and orange flavors.

The texture of these was extremely waxy and almost flaky in consistency. I was surprised by this, especially considering that the third item on the list was partially hydrogenated soybean oil. Ick. The flavors are terribly mild, but of what you can taste, was very pleasant. They were easily distinguishable from one another, although the watermelon flavor ended up being grape. Strange.

Stitches Xperiments

Stitch Xtreme Xperiments: Gummi Tangy Tongue

This one is so much fun! It’s a gummi that looks like Stitch’s mouth and teeth with this long pink tongue sticking out between them. I’d imagine it would really appeal to any kid out for a sour gummi that has a cool “gross-out” factor to it. I have to admit that even I was drawn to the novelty to it.

Stitch’s “mouth” totally fooled me. I was expecting a totally different texture, based on appearance, than what it really was. It looked firm, but ended up being really soft with the outside being a tad chewy. Very odd! The flavor is gross and tastes like plastic. I didn’t finish it.

The gummi tongue looks really cool as it’s covered in granular sugar (I think for a realistic effect?). The gummi itself is light and fluffy and the sugar coating provides a great texture contrast. The flavor is… actually, I’m not sure. It’s fruity, sweet, sort of pineapple-y. Kinda like fruit punch but not quite, and has a cherry-like after taste.

So if you find yourself in Disney World and want to have a fruit candy, pass on the Mickey’s Fruit Chews and head for Stitch’s line of goodies. Much tastier, more novel and less deceptive!

    I was at Disney World a few months ago as well – July to be exact. The only candy I bought was at the Disney resort I was at and it was a packet of jelly beans. Can’t remember the name of them exactly but Goofy was on the front. They were delicious – reminded me of Bertie Botts flavoured jelly beans as seen on Harry Potter. There were so many different flavors in there and it was fun trying to determine exactly what the flavor was. I would so love another packet but unfortunately I live in Australia and would have to take another trip over…although any excuse and I will be there.

    We went in June, and my 3-year old daughter had to have some of the candy from the Goofy’s candy company store. I’m surprised your review didn’t cover more of the candies there, since there is a lot to choose from. We have been using the “Cinderella candies” (a $5, Cinderella-shaped plastic toy filled with tiny cylindrical candies that taste like mild SweeTarts) as a reward for potty training. I know, we shouldn’t reward that behavior with food or candy, but it is an incentive. She always asks for them!

    My favorites are Goofy’s Sour Cherry Balls. Very yummy! I also can’t resist getting a super mega lollipop, even though I am in my 30s!

    Too bad you opted for the fruit chews. No one has really ever been able to make them quite as good as Starburst. You should have went for the mini SweeTart-type candies that are shaped like Mickey and the rest of the gang. Those are amazing! I like regular SweeTarts, but the Disney World version are actually even better. Disney also makes mints in the same shape. The cinnamon ones are great, but stay away from the peppermint. Those are too artificial tasting.

    Okay sorry about that my son was bumping me while i was typing and i didn’t re-check my spelling. I will re-phrase that. Iam going to Disney world with my 5 yrar old hyper son. We always get 1 peice of candy for him. Are there any good tasting candiesthat aren’t chock loaded with sugar?

    Nicole, unfortunately ANY candy is going to be filled with a lot of sugar, and the ones at Disney are no exception. The only thing I can think to recommend is perhaps get a candy, like the fruit chews, that comes in pieces so you can dish out a little bit at a time to your son as a treat. Have a fun time on your vacation!
