Gold Beignets and Jolly Roger Drink
This post is long overdue! Last year, the Pirates of the Caribbean ride celebrated 50 years! Wahoo! For the celebration Disneyland went all out with some specialty golden treats! At the Mint Julep Bar and Cafe Orleans you could get Golden Beignets and a Jolly Roger Drink! You can normally get cute Mickey shaped beignets at both locations, but not GOLD ones! The flavor was so fantastic I hope these make a come back!
The fun thing about getting the beignets at the Mint Julep Bar is that they came in a bag. As you can see, McKenzie had some serious fun with the extra golden sprinkles crumbs that fell to the bottom. 🙂
This was the Jolly Roger drink! It was a tart drink but had some fun fruity flavors! Although this is no longer available, you can get a fun Mint Julep instead 🙂
When I heard about GOLDEN CHURROS on Instagram, you know I had to book a trip to Disneyland just to go try these! Honestly…they were worth the trip! So much that I made 2 other trips back to Disneyland just for the Gold Churros!
They tasted like fruity pebbles or a yummy lemony zest! It sounds weird, but such a good combo. I am a HUGE churro fan and I would pick these babies over a regular churro any day! I am really hoping they bring these churros back ASAP! You could only get them at the churro cart next to the entrance of the Haunted Mansion.
Look at that sparkle!! Who knew it could be so fun eating golden sparkles?!?! Disney, please bring these back!
Want to see the golden sparkle and shine for yourself? Come join McKenzie and I as we try some fun Pirate treats at Disneyland!
