LeFou's Brew yes or no?

What do you guys think of it for those that have had it? Is it worth trying? What does it taste like?

They sell the same drink at Disney California Adventure in Carsland
(only they call it " Red's Apple Freeze.")

It's frozen apple juice (think frozen lemonade) with a whipped "toasted marshmallow"
topping.

We liked it very much.

(We even went back a few hours later and each bought a second cup of the stuff.)

It's nice and refreshing, I enjoyed it very much. Though I'd recommend mixing in the foam on top because otherwise it is very tart. Not exactly enjoyable on its own.

I don't like apple juice at all because of the cloying sweetness, but I do love apple cider. LeFou's Brew tastes much more like cider to me, with a slightly less acidic bite and a very subtle, but SUPER tasty hint of marshmallow.

DH and I loved it!

My Grandnephew (who works in Frontier Land) says that Butter Beer at HP is much better.

Albeit very sweet as well, I'm sorry, but Butterbeer is a tough act to follow.
Looking forward to comparing anyway.

It was refreshing, but very sweet. It's one of the things that you have once in a long time. We did get the mug, its cute. Gaston is one of Dh's favorite characters.

My 20 month old nephew and I both liked it, but my sister didn't. She says she's not crazy about apple juice in general though. I didn't really care for the foam on top though - I think maybe it's mango flavored.

I liked the first few sips. If the mug was the size of a thimble I would have been happier.
