Best Snack Credit Options!

I want to try getting some different things with my snack credits instead of the usual popcorn, pretzel, ice cream bar...

What do you dining planners LOVE to use your snack credits for?

I'd love to hear about different snacks.

I haven't gotten one yet, but I've heard good things about the baked potato from the Liberty Square Market in the Magic Kingdom. Sometimes they also have baked sweet potatoes abailable.

I've used snack credits for olive tapenade and bagel chips to spread it on at both Pop's food court and the Mara at AKL and crepes in France in Epcot.

My all time favorite snack is to snack our way through the countries for lunch. Favs are to go to France and the four of us split a couple of ham and cheese croissants and a Napolean YUM! Then we go to germany for brats and pretzels and finish by going to karamell kuche. Last time we had a caramel cupcake there but this year I have my eye on a dark chocolate caramel with sea salt.
Happy snacking

Like others have said, I definitely want to spend my upcoming credits on World Showcase desserts, especially the Napoleon in France! I'm hoping to try a slushie or two in Magic Kingdom and maybe get some funnel cake. My fiance loves sugared pecans or almonds in Magic Kingdom as well. Oh, and I can't miss chocolate covered or smore marshmallows on a stick (for me, in Hollywood Studios!) - my fav.

I used snack credits mostly for breakfast...usually a yogurt parfait at our resort (CSR) which was so filling.

I do remember at Hollywood Studios right by the Aerosmith rollercoaster there is a stand that had yogurt smoothies for a snack credit. Both flavors were really good (but very sweet) and pretty large. We had a hard time finishing them. It's not really a "different" snack, but a great value and not total junk food.

IMO the best snack credits are in EPCOT during food and wine. We have got some $8.00 items for a snack. I even buy the meal plan during this time. I am usually a ddp hater! We get an AP discount that actually saves us more than free dining. But during f&w we think it is worth it!

definately save them for food & wine. You'll get to try so many different foods, and if you get the more expensive items (that qualify as a snack credit) it's a great deal.

There's some great information about at the food & wine booths here:

Food and Wine Fest. - Lobster roll, but have to try the "Le Cellier" Wild Mushroom Beef Filet Mignon with Truffle Butter Sauce at the Canada kiosk
EPCOT-Sweet almond pretzel at Kringla or anything at France bakery
Animal Kingdom-Jalapeno Cheese Stuffed Pretzel
DHS- cupcake at Staring Rools
MK-Warm Cinammon Roll Main st bakery or Dole Whip Pineapple Float
POP- hot fudge sundae or blueberry muffin or cinammon bun

Like mentoned above and we will be doing is saving all of our SC for the Food and Wine Fest. Attached is a link to all of the Countries with the Food and Drink they offer. So many goodies.

Amazing that a lobster roll counts as one SC. I love the idea of the warm cinnamon roll too! This is our first time for DDP so we will definitely pick the SC places carefully. Thanks for all the good suggestions.
