Goofy's Candy Co question

Are those pretzels/marshmallows where you get to select the toppings you want considered a snack credit? They used to be but I don't think I saw it on the list.

Thanks!
Dawna

Seems pretty inconsistent.... As if once inflation brings the price of a snack over $4, they can't decide whether to continue including it as a snack credit.

Of course-- As the prices of the dining plan have gone up, the value of a snack credit should go up as well!

If in 2006... A particular snack was $3.99. and the meal plan was $35 (or whatever it was)... Now in 2011, with the meal plan at about $47.... The snack should not be excluded just because the price has increased to $4.29 (or whatever).

If it's included when we are there next week, we might have to get it and split it 4 ways, lol.

I don't think it is the cost so much as the single serving rule that makes that one questionable. Dole whip floats are over $4 now and there's no uncertainty there, and the same goes for ice cream sundaes, slushies, and floats in several locations.

But for that ice cream sandwich... You have a scoop of ice cream which could be a snack on its own, put together with two cookies that are also eligible snacks on their own. So that's a single snack credit being used to get three eligible snack credits, and I think that's where the ambiguity came from - whether or not three snacks stacked on top of one another is really a single-serving snack.

I will post any updates upon our return. I am going to try main street bakery. We have never been there and we have been to wdw 7 times. I find it amazing we can always find something we have not done. Every trip we try to find new places or activities. I am looking for cupcakes and fudge. Also looking for snacks I can take home as DH and DS are not coming with us. It would be nice to bring home a treat even if small. Thanks again 5 days to go http://www.wdwinfo.com/images/smilies/cheer2.gif
Definitely stop by Seashore Sweets on the Boardwalk.They have lots of yummy snack options including fudge. For cupcakes I would head next door to Boardwalk Bakery.

I don't know if they are still on the list but I suspect not. I used a SC for one last October at Goofys (pretzel rod with M&Ms ) but it was ready made. I was under the impression that you couldn't get them as make your own, but I didn't ask .... I was happy with the M&Ms and chocolate

Babycakes in DTD now accepts the DDP - each single serve item is a snack credit. Yummy!

Question Turkey Legs ?

ITEMS NOT OFFERED AS A SNACK OPTION (or they used to be but have been removed
Turkey Legs

Ice Cream Sandwich/AK/Dino bite snacks
Create-your-own treats/Goofys (too much inconsistency on what is or is not allowed so it has been removed)

Are the turkey legs offered then as a counter service credit? Just wondering since they are not a snack credit.
I did find a thread that said in 2010 the turkey leg was a cs credit and a drink or chips were included. I sure would like to try one sometime.

Food and wine

I was looking over the menus from the 2010 food and wine festival and noticed that many items are listed as snack credits. Has that been fairly consitant? Is there a price limit? I realize that anything with alcohol is not going to count, but doe all or nearly all of the food count as a snack. There were some $5 - $7 items listed.

The last day of my trip will be the first day of food and wine, and I would love to hoard a few snack credits to use there if they will work... but it would be a waste to find out that they don't and I have 20 - 30 credits left.

In December, we were trying to use up some remaining snack credits and were able to get a couple of the small Goofy's candy bags at the store in Frontierland. We got the Goofy tarts and some gourmet jelly beans. When we asked if they counted as a snack credit, the CM said he would scan them and see. Sure enough, it went through.

We were there last year for the Food & Wine Festival and used almost all of our 20 snack credits there. All food items from the booths, regardless of the price, were available for a snack credit, as well as any of the drinks that did not contain alcohol. It was a great way to use all those snack credits!
