Welcome to our weekly adventure exploring three food suggestions to enjoy at Universal Orlando this week. This week, our foodie tour takes us to Universal Studios Florida theme park. The rest of Universal Orlando Resort will be overlooked this week. Of course, since the summer “Tribute Store” is in full swing, we’ll venture there. In fact, our first two suggestions this week come from this store.
Universal Orlando veterans have strong feelings about the former Back to the Future attraction. Although it was not one of Universal Studios Florida’s original attractions, it came early in the theme park’s history. In honor of this movie and attraction, Universal Orlando is selling an “Outta Time Brownie” in the summer tribute store. This brownie is decorated with a piece of chocolate on top. Universal Orlando offers some type of brownie during all seasonal food programs. These have an extremely rich taste. If you love rich dark chocolate, head back to Universal Studios Florida for one.
Universal Orlando also has an adorable “ET Basket Cake” in the tribute store. The fondant creates the shape of the basket that ET rides in the movie. The main flavors that shine with this treat are cookies and cream. A well-done chocolate cake also forms a base in this homage to a classic movie and attraction. A more detailed review can be found here.
Our final stop this week takes us to Finnegan’s Bar and Grill. Recently they added two new desserts. My suggestion for today is to take us to a Universal Orlando version of bread pudding. Caramel apple bread pudding replaced the previous version of bread pudding here. These include hot cinnamon apple bread pudding served with Magners apple cider, caramel and vanilla ice cream. Based on initial customer feedback, this dessert is a big step forward for Finnegan’s.
Thank you for joining me on this journey. Next week we’ll be spending a little more time in the Summer Tribute Store and the Today Café. Of course, we could have a big theme park food announcement by next week. If so, we will endeavor to update you. As always, eat your way!
