If Disney offered a candy tour of the World Showcase, I would be the first one to sign-up. Candy is a sweet exploration of cultural traditions. Anyone who was lucky enough to see Miyuki (the candy lady) create her amazing candy art in the Japan pavilion knows the stories that can be told through candy. It’s also what made Candy Sushi and The Chocolate Experience two very popular activities at past Food and Wine Festivals.
Since no such tour exists, I decided to have a “self-guided” tour to explore the candies of the World Showcase. The shops are always getting in new products. So, it’s always worth a stop to see what’s in. Here is what we found on our most recent visit.
We found some goat’s milk candy here…for the REALLY adventurous!
China had fewer selections than what they have had in the past. The selections aren’t as interesting as Japan, but still worth a look.
One cannot do a candy tour around the World Showcase without stopping into the Karamell-Kuche. The sweet smell beckons me into the shop every visit. Here, you can watch the confectionary delights being made too.
Feeling a bit nutty? Italy had plenty of chocolates with mixed nuts. These are some pretty sophisticated chocolates that will pair nicely with a cup of espresso.
This might be one of the most fun places to go candy hunting. I can never get enough of those Kit Kats…
Have you ever wondered if Turkish delight was good enough to trade in your entire family to the White Witch? Well… you can try it out for yourself in Morocco.
We found some jelly beans and fudge in The Tea Caddy.
