Fun Snacks around Epcot's World Showcase

I had the BEST time yesterday, just walking around World Showcase, looking at all the different snacks! It had been so long since I had really looked into all the different stores, I was amazed all over again at the variety and fun packaging.

Do you have a favorite international snack that you have to have everytime that you head to Epcot? Pocky in Japan? Or maybe maple candies in Canada?

We get the super sour candies in Japan. When it says Super Sour it really is super sour!!! We use to get sweedish starfish sour candies in Norway but they stopped selling those last year. Our daughter was so dissappointed. sad sad

Yum...I LOVE snacking!

My favorite snack is the fruit tart in Norway. They don't seem to have it all the time (I don't even know if they have it anymore) but it was in a small tart shell that had a chocolate shell and it had fresh fruit like strawberries, kiwi etc topped with Whipped Cream. I am not exactly sure how Norway factors into all of that..because when I think of Norway I think of fresh kiwi don't you?..but it is delicious!

I also love to get candy from Japan..we usually try to get something new every time. Does the Grey Goose Slush from France count as a snack? Ha!

I usually head to France for an eclair when I want a sweet snack...and of course there's nothing like washing it down with the Grey Goose Slushy!

I like the Schoolbread from Norway, chocolate caramel squares from Germany, chocolate and caramel covered strawberries from Germany, and red bean ice cream from China. Shall I go on?

What about the shaved ice in Japan? It looks enticing. Has anyone had it? We also want to try the gelato in Italy - but it was too cold for ice cream on Saturday! Is it really good?

Without a doubt, the kringla at the Norway bakery wins hands down for me as my favorite snack food. It is a large, soft pretzel covered with frosting and sliced almonds.

I bought a couple one time right before we head back to the airport. We brought them onto the plane, and the guy sitting next to us started asking us where we got them. Then the women across the aisle also were curious on where we got them. We ended up sharing with the two of them, and they were surprised how good it tasted!

If you happen to get this when it is slightly chilly outside, a nice cup of hot coffee or tea goes extremely well with the kringla. I've enjoyed it while sitting down with a hot cup of coffee waiting for the start of Illuminations, surrounded by friends. Now THAT was Magical!

The first time I'm in Epcot on a trip (which is the first or second day) I go to japan and load up on candy. I love all the weird stuff you can only get there.
And lefsa. I always have to get some lefsa.

Haha of course. biggrin
There's actually a store in my town that sells Ramune though, so that's not as much of a priority for me.

My hubby always has to get a funnel cake in America. Apparently, it is better than any other he's ever had. I usually get a pretzel from Germany. This upcoming trip i will definitely be trying the caramel treats in Germany and the maple candy from Canada sounds very tempting!
