Hello again, readers of TDR Explorer. It’s me again. The glutton from Honorable Rat. In my last blog post, I wrote about the Easter goodies of Tokyo Disneyland. This time, I ventured to Tokyo DisneySea to sample some of its Easter offerings. On with the honest reviews!
Malibu Melon Soda Cocktail
As you can see from the picture above, I love alcohol. If you’ve been following Honorable Rat, you will know that I am a seasonal alcoholic and a gambler. I know, I have a lot of flaws, but I’ve learned to live with them.
My favorite alcoholic drink is anything with Malibu Rum, so naturally I got super excited when I saw that Tokyo DisneySea was serving up this Malibu Melon Soda Cocktail. I immediately stood in line with a big smile on my face. Next thing I noticed was its price. 680 yen for a cocktail?! Come on, Tokyo Disney! I might be an alcoholic, but I’m a cheap alcoholic. That’s a lot of money for what I imagined would be a watered down cocktail, but I didn’t give up. I still stood in line like any other alcoholic would and got myself a cup.
As the sun was shining brightly on my face, I tipped the cup to my lips and I could smell the heavenly aroma of Malibu Cocktail. That smell always makes me think about the beach. I took a sip and realized that it wasn’t watered down at all. It was rather tasty. The quantity of Malibu in the cocktail was perfect. A nice, refreshing drink. Personally, I still feel that it is a little expensive, but with that being said, I wouldn’t mind shelling out my coins in the future for this drink again. I give this a 4/5.
In my previous post, I talked about how much I love churros and reviewed this particular Easter flavor of churro. Since I’m a lazy person, I will link you guys to that blog post. If you would like to read a review of Mixed Berry Sugar Churro, click here. See, that wasn’t so hard. I saved you guys some time by saving myself some time. The snacking journey through Tokyo DisneySea continues!
Earl Grey Tea & Raspberry Tipo Torta
Next up, we have the Earl Grey Tea & Raspberry Tipo Torta. The first time I tried Tipo Torta, I was blown away. The first Tipo Torta that I’ve ever tried in my entire life was the Caramel & Custard Tipo Torta in Tokyo Disneyland. That Tipo Torta set the bar real high. After that, I tried Chocolate Tipo Torta and it was not quite as good. I was devastated. I imagined that all Tipo Tortas would be as good as the Caramel & Custard Tipo Torta, but I was wrong. My Tipo Torta world was turned upside down. Haizzzz….
But Hayatt! There’s no time to wallow in self-pity. You have to keep on providing honest reviews! It is your calling! So, I picked myself up, walked with my head held high to High Tide Treats and got myself the Earl Grey Tea & Raspberry Tipo Torta. I slowly bit into this Tipo Torta and swirled it around in my mouth. It had a unique flavor. I really like Earl Grey tea and raspberry, but somehow, combined, it didn’t really work for me. It got me a little confused. Because of this confusion, I am gonna give this a 3/5. I’m beginning to feel like Caramel & Custard Tipo Torta is the creme de la creme of Tipo Tortas. It reminds me of Guns N Roses’s first album. It all went downhill after Appetite for Destruction.
To end my snacking journey in Tokyo DisneySea, I got myself an Easter Parfait. At first I was a little hesitant to get it because of the price. ￥500 for soft-serve ice-cream is a little crazy to me. I’m a Costco foodcourt soft-serve ice-cream kinda guy. It’s big, cheap and delicious, just the way I like my ice-cream.
However, at that moment, I really felt like having ice-cream, so I got it. It was really good. There were many layers to this dessert. Right up top, we got the soft-serve ice-cream with a little strawberry sauce like substance. Right below that, we got Matcha-White Chocolate Mousse and at the bottom we got Sakura Jelly. As you go through the layers, you experience more and more of what Japan has to offer. It was like a cultural food experience in a cup. Out of all the Easter snacks that I tried in Tokyo DisneySea, this one has to be the best, but I still feel that￥500 for soft-serve ice-cream is rather steep. Therefore, this Easter Snack receives a, drum roll please, 4.5/5. If it was a little more than a hundred yen cheaper, I would have given this a perfect score.
