Try these 4 snacks at the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival

Spring is in full bloom at the Epcot® International Flower & Garden Festival — and so are the snacks. Much like the Food & Wine Festival, this spring event features stalls throughout the World Showcase, from griddled maple pound cake in Canada to chocolate macaron lollipops in France.

In addition to themed topiaries, there are tons of snack options across the World Showcase during the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival.

The best part about the Flower & Garden Festival is the ability to enjoy your food with a view. At this time, you must be stationary to eat, which is the perfect excuse to explore the topiaries. Look for beloved characters, plus fun facts around the park, including different-aged bonzai trees in Japan and herbs and citrus near Italy.

WHAT TO TRY

While there are tons options across World Showcase, here were a few of our favorites:

This gooey Margherita flatbread can be found at Primavera Kitchen near Italy.

Margherita pizza and arancini: If you walk by Italy, you can probably smell the garlic and cheese wafting from the Pizzeria. Skip the sit-down meal and grab a quick bite at Primavera Kitchen. The Margherita pizza comes on a flatbread with tomato sauce and mozzarella, and the arancini is stuffed with sweet sausage and risotto, served over a bed of pomodoro sauce. $8.50 for the pizza, $12 for arancini.

Sample the warm aranchini balls, stuffed with risotto and sweet sausage.

There’s also a traditional Sicilian cannoli and alcoholic beverage options at Primavera Kitchen, including prosecco, sangria, and moscato.

Maple popcorn shake: This little delight is exactly what it sounds like — a vanilla-maple milkshake topped with caramel popcorn, but it tastes surprisingly reminiscent of cereal and milk. Find it at Northern Bloom in Canada. $4.75. Bonus: For $13, you can get the shake spiked with Tap 357 Maple Rye Whisky.

This maple popcorn milkshake tastes eerily like cereal and milk…but better.

In addition to the shakes, Northern Bloom also has beef tenderloin tips, seared scallops, griddled maple pound cake, and beer.

Honey Bee Citrus beer: At the Honey Bee-stro, hosted by the National Honey Board, you’ll find the First Magnitude Brewing Co. Honey Bee Citrus Blonde Ale. This refreshing sip offers a repreive from the hot Florida sun, and the beer itself is brewed in nearby Gainesville. $4.50.

When you’ve had enough of the Florida sun, cool off with a honey-citrus beer.

Craving more honey-themed treats? Try the Tupelo honey and sweet corn spoon bread, lavender honey chicken flatbread, or the local wildflower honey-mascarpone cheesecake. There’s also orange blossom honey wine and a honey-peach freeze (available in both alcoholic and non-alcoholic versions). Find these at Showcase Plaza.

Of course, there are plenty of additional options at other World Showcase stops, but you’ll need more than a few hours to get through each option without overeating.

Sample something great? Let us know!
