Frozen butterbeer is amazing. Not only it is cooling on a hot day, I feel like you get more of the flavor that way. Also that vanillay topping they put on it? Delicious!

Am I going to go into a diabetic coma if I drink it? Is there any chance they have Sugar Free versions of any of these?

Since the party is at night in mid-December...Butterbeer may freeze on its own!

It shouldn't put you into a diabetic coma! I'm sugar sensitive myself and haven't had problems with it.

JK Rowling actually requested that they not put a lot of sugar in the drink, so it has about as many calories and as much sugar as a Coke. There's a better article that explains it here.

I find that it's more or less like drinking a cream soda. Perhaps even slightly less sweet than that.

If you're watching sugar watch out for the Pumpkin Juice. Holy moley is that sweet!

Hmmmm... I don't drink regular Coke because it's too sugary for me. Sounds like I may have nothing to drink during the party!

Thanks for the info. (Oh, and your link doesn't work.)

Sorry about the link not working. If you Google "Butterbeer calories" you can find the same info in the first two links.

Rereading the site it says that Butterbeer has 200 calories, 42 grams of carbs and 39 grams of sugar. That is 10 fewer grams than a Coke, so it should be less sweet than a Coke.

Maybe you can ask to sample it if you explain about your concerns and then go from there? I also wonder if it would be possible for them to "cut" a glass of Butterbeer with seltzer or something to make it less sweet? My parents used to do that to soda when we were kids.

I do wonder why they haven't offered sugar free options though. I wonder if that idea is in the making?

See, 42 grams of carbs is my entire dinner's worth of carbs (I'm a diabetic, and have to manage my carbs carefully.) As much as I'd like to taste Butterbeer, I'm not giving up my entire dinners's carbs for it!!! The good thing is, I think the Butterbeer is included with the event, so I guess I could get some & just taste it. But that seems like a waste. I'll have to see about the "cutting it". That might work. I'm surprised there's no Sugar Free option...

Thanks!

ETA: Actually, I just went back & checked the first post, and there *are* all sorts of beverages being offered:

Quote:
Complimentary Beverages:
Butterbeer (TM) - Served in a souvenir cup
Soft Drinks
Pumpkin Juice
Lemonade
Iced Tea
Apple Cider
Pear Cider
Bottled Water
So I won't dehydrate. It's just too bad I have to "miss" the Butterbeer experience.

I think the frontpage is shortening the link.

I tried it too for the heck of it, and got an error. It cold be the best thing, since I don't know if I can completely commit to staying on site right now.

I just tried the front page link as I was just curious of the resort prices and the link worked for me.

Here is a copy and paste of the link if it helps:

https://www.dreamsunlimitedtravel.co...s/dap-2011.cfm

I can't wait until the tickets open up. I only need one, but so do many others.

Good luck to everyone when the tickets come out.
