Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix 2 is back at Epcot today and with it this year a whole new line up of treats! We had to test them out for ourselves and give you the review! Check out some of the desserts and food we tried this afternoon.
Today was extra hot so we needed something cool to sip on. The “Spiked Root Beer Float” with Barq’s Root Beer Float, Stoli Vanil Vodka topped with whipped cream and mint leaves. You can find this at the Fife & Drum Tavern for $11.00 including tax! It was smooth, sweet, and had exactly the right amount of vodka to make you feel a little punch.
The new “Mix Tart” was a great accompaniment to go along with the boozy float. It was a strawberry filled shortbread cookie that had the edible imprint of the mixtape on the front. This was a great cookie with lots of flavor in each bite. I almost want to say it was a similar taste to the tarts over in Toy Story Land at Woody’s Lunch Box. The tart was also found at Fife and Drum for $5.00 each.
If you want a little more substance to your meal the “Awesome Mix Plate” is exactly what you need. Head over to the Liberty Inn and get this plate of french fries smothered in bbq pulled pork, mac and cheese, bacon, and lettuce. The bbq pork was delish and the plate itself was ok. I didn’t care for the mac and cheese, but the rest was a good and filling meal. To add a little sweetness we tried the new Cosmic Cake! This was delightful with every chocolatey bite. It’s made of chocolate cake and filled with vanilla buttercream and space themed sprinkles. It is topped with a galaxy painted chocolate on top.
