You can find a review and recipe on the Food Blog:
http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2009/0...s-zebra-domes/

They are very good, but can only be found at Boma (dinner) and at Mara (to go). They're kind of like mousse (lightly Kahlua flavored) over a sponge cake. Very yummy!

Zebra Domes are little bits of mush. They are a cake type thing with coffee and some type of alcoholic liqueur flavoring. Didn't care for them at all, texture or flavor wise.

Gross. I never understood what the hype was over those things. You don't hear much about them anymore like you did a few years ago -- those and the soups were all anyone talked about..

1) I have to agree.
2) The Zebra Domes never impressed me.
3) I think the idea of eating booze-infused bsakery goods was overrated.
4) However, the soups are pretty darn good.
. . . 15 different soups
. . . soups are rotated throughout the week
. . . 5 served on any given day

I thought the bread pudding at Boma was much better than the zebra domes. I wasn't a fan of them either.

I'm in the Zebra Dome fan group! They are awesomely delicious! They are like a mouse-ish substance on top of sponge cake, but the texture didn't bother me. They're not really mushy. They're firm, like they were chilled or such. I do also love the bread pudding at Boma!

And for the record, I love the lentil soup!

I have also tried them several times and I do not like them.

I want to like them, they are so cute.

I wanted to like them, but I don't like coffee or liquor flavor in my desserts.

And FYI-they do have alcohol in them, but it is a very small amount. I felt comfortable with my 3 year old trying one (he didn't like it though)

Now, instead of a Zebra dome...they should make a fancy version of a Little Debbie zebra cake...my DH and DS would make a special trip to AKL for that

We love zebra domes. But they should sell them one at a time rather than packages of five They are really rich.
