Best/Favorite Ways to Use Snack Credits

We leave in one week for WDW and this is the first time we are going on the DDP. We have all of our table service reservations done and can do quick service as we go, but we want to know what is the best way to use our snack credits? Any snacks that are a must have? We don't want to get to the end of the week and feel like we need to get water or popcorn just to use up credits!

I used a snack credit for what I'd almost call a meal (if it weren't candy).

It was a Mickey shaped rice krispies bar on a stick, dipped in white chocolate, then covered with reese's pieces, and then a white chocolate drizzle.

I got it in Downtown Disney at Goofy's Candy Co. I got to pick the combo, and they made it for me. It was huge!!!! Definately the best use of a snack credit ever (IMO).

Other ones I've enjoyed in no particular order:
Dole Whip in MK (a must have every trip);
Napoleon in France's Patisserie in Epcot; and
Warm Cinnamon Bun at the Main St. Bakery for breakfast.

Great for quick breakfast. I use resort mug to get hot tea, then snack credit for bagel or muffin.

Where are you staying? I think using the snack credit for the yogurt parfait at POR is a great deal! It's a huge serving and really filling for a breakfast (mind you my husband needs more food, but for me and a piece of fruit it's plenty till lunch).

They make it to order with ingredients that you select. Give it a try with at least one snack credit. I don't think you will be disappointed.

Here is what we like to spend our snack credits on....
- Dole Whip/Dole Whip Floats
- Soft Serve ice cream at various areas of different parks
- popcorn and pop/water
- make your own chocolate covered marshmallows at Goofy's Candy Co.
- Anything in the case at Goofy's Candy Co. (that is apart of the DDP)
- Frozen Cokes at Club Cool in Epcot
- Frozen Slushies at Goofy's Candy Co.
- Any frozen treats from the ice cream carts
- Haven't had this one yet, but will on our next trip...an ice cream cookie sandwich from Main Street Bakery

As you can see our family loves our snacks at Disney

- Gingerbread Mickey from Germany
- Pretzel from Germany
- Kaki Gori from Japan

- All leftover snack credits go towards Mickey rice krispy treats, rock candy, and snacks for the plane.

Some of my favourite items we got as snack credits were:

Caramel cupcake from Karamel Kuche in Germany
Caramel covered cookie from Karamel Kuche
Funnel cake (we got one at Animal Kingdom - I'm sure I've read somewhere that they are not always snack credits)
Giant pretzel
Beignets from POFQ (we were also staying at POR and walked along to the food court at FQ so we could try these - so worth the walk!)
Various ice creams, frozen treats, slushies etc
Dole Whip float (I actually didn't like this but still thought it was a good use of a snack credit as I probably wouldn't have tried it otherwise)

I know others have said it but I feel like it must be said again: dole whip

Also, the pretzels in Germany, cinnamon almonds (I think they sell them on main street) and funnel cakes!

There's a snack thread around here somewhere. The cookie sundae at Story Book Treats in MK looks AWESOME and is a snack credit.

With our family of four and our usual 8 or 9 nights we seem to always end up with a lot of snack credits left over. Usually we load up on fudge and take it home with us. It is a little taste of Disney to enjoy at home.
