    Good morning everyone! :wave2: Had a busy day yesterday so got a bit behind on the updates. I still have about 10 more to post, so let's get started shall we? :thumbsup2


    First up is Chavaleh's update from her dinner Friday at AoA's...


    Landscapes of Flavor


    [​IMG]


    She said, "We split up last night so I only have my food from that meal. I had the Bahn Mi Pork Sandwich from the AoA's LoF. It was awful. Really truly awful. I don't know how something with those kind of ingredients can have that little flavor." :sad2:




    And for dessert...

    Then last night ChrisNY2 sent us his updates for yesterday, beginning with breakfast at the Coronado Springs Resort's...

    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]


    Chris said, "I started my day at Pepper Market, where I enjoyed an Eggs Benedict Breakfast Burrito. I had one of these in January, and I have been dreaming of it ever since! It was delicious."




    "I headed to the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival. It was my first time at the festival and I really wanted to see David Bromstad, and HGTV designer."



    FLORIDA FRESH


    [​IMG]

    "I started with 40 Karat Carrot Wine from Florida Orange Groves and Orange Blossom Pilsner. The carrot wine was interesting, and really tasted like carrots. I'd have it again with the right food pairing. The Orange Blossom Pilsner was really great and had nice character."





    "After that, I went to see David Bromstad's presentation. Here's a picture of me with him."



    [​IMG]




    LOTUS HOUSE


    [​IMG]

    "Then for a snack I had the Spring Pancake with Grilled Chicken and Green Apple from China's Lotus House booth. The reviews were right: this was amazing. It paired well with the Hot Sun Tomato Wine from the Florida Fresh booth, which had just the right amount of spice."




    [​IMG]


    "I had a mid-afternoon Rosita Margarita from the Jardin de Fiestas booth. It wasn't great, it had an odd flavor, I wouldn't have it again."




    [​IMG]


    "I also tasted the Mango Mama wine from the Fruits by the Glass booth. It was ok - refreshing on the hot day, but probably not something I'd order again."







    "Finally, I had dinner at...


    Tokyo Dining



    [​IMG]


    "It was my first time eating there and I ordered the Chicken Katsu. It was very delicious. The waitress recommended it as one of the more traditional cooked dishes on the menu. I loved the entire meal."

    Next we have Couchy's update from her day yesterday.


    She said, "I was in DHS at lunch so with limited options I went with...



    Backlot Express



    [​IMG]


    "I had the Cheeseburger with onion straws. To be honest, it was not very good but I was hungry. The burger had cheese, bacon and onion straws. I pretty much took all of this off as they were all soggy in grease. The fries were good though." ;)




    Then later Couchy enjoyed this cocktail by the pool...


    [​IMG]

    Hendrick's on the rocks

    Then we received this dinner update from smsraven.


    Everything Pop


    She said, "We went over to Pop Century for dinner, but I forgot my phone in the room. We did bring back some tye-dye cheesecake for dessert."


    [​IMG]



    "I had the cheesy shrimp and grits. My husband had the pork shank and the kids had the pepperoni pizza sticks. The kids said the pizza was delicious. The hubby and I both thought ours were ok, but nothing to go out of our way for."

    They do have different flavors, I think the Red - cherry, Yellow -lemon, Orange -orange, and Green - lime. That's all I can think of but there might be others. In 1coolnini's pic of the chips, you can see part of the jar which is filled with a variety of Swedish Fish.

    Yes, they are candy. To me they really have their own flavor ... similar to cherry or strawberry licorice. They only come in the one flavor. I don't really like "gummy" or jelly kind of candies but I do love Swedish Fish!


    Edited to add: I guess there are other flavors! I have never seen anything other than the red!
    I hope that helps a bit ... I'd be glad to send you some if you think you would be interested in trying them. Just PM me!

    Oops, maybe I'm wrong and all the colors are the same flavor. :confused3 It's been years since I've had them so in all honesty I can't really remember. :lmao:


    ETA: OK, I think we need some help with this one. Anybody??? Do the different colors = different flavors? ;)

    Thanks for the info ladies and, Vicki, thank you for the offer :hug: I think we might try and get hold of some in November when we are next in Orlando. Not sure I will like them, though, if they are cherry flavour :snooty:

    Now moving on to a different kind of fish, the kind that MommaBerd had in her sushi rolls last night at the...


    Kona Island Sushi Bar



    [​IMG]



    Here's what they chose...


    [​IMG]

    Volcano Roll - spicy tuna seafood with tempura crunch




    [​IMG]

    Citrus Hamachi Roll - citrus marinated yellow tail in tempura crunch




    [​IMG]

    California Luau Roll - jumbo lump crab, pineapple and avocado


    She said, "I'm not a big sushi fan, but DH is. We both agreed the volcano and hamachi rolls were very tasty. I really thought I would like the California roll the best because I love crab But it just wasn't that great and we ended up leaving about half of it on the plate."



    "And here is me & my Lapu Lapu - just had to try it!"

    Next up is jenifferf00's update from her dinner last night at...


    [​IMG]



    She said, "Our dinner far exceeded my expectations. Two things I didn't realize. 1) On the regular Dining Plan, kids get an appetizer without additional charge. 2) Children under 3 on the Dining Plan get their own meal, no app, and a drink at no charge. I thought the under 3 thing was really above and beyond. Our waitress , Iliana, was amazing." :thumbsup2



    "We ordered alcoholic beverages and she offered us coffee in place of our sodas, which was another nice perk."

    [​IMG]

    Red Sangria - a refreshing blend of Italian wine and fresh fruit




    And now for their food...


    [​IMG]

    The bread




    [​IMG]

    Kids Appetizer Fruit Cocktail - oranges, apples, strawberries, red grapes




    [​IMG]

    Carciofi - white pizza, artichoke, fontina, mozzarella, truffle oil (I think?)



    [​IMG]

    Candele - candle stick pasta, sausage ragu, polpettine meatballs, mozzarella, ricotta (Maybe?)





    [​IMG]

    Kids Spaghetti con Polpettini (meatballs) - (I think?)



    And the desserts...


    [​IMG]

    Coppa di Brutti Ma Buon (Ugly but Good Sundae) - Amarena cherry and vanilla gelato sundae





    [​IMG]






    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]

    Zeppole di Caterina - Ricotta cheese fritters, served with whipped cream and chocolate sauce




    "The food was excellent, the service impeccable. I will be emailing Disney about our waitress because she was that good." :thumbsup2
