We hope you are enjoying your virtual tour so far. This seems about the right time to stop for a snack. The best additions to this year’s Flower and Garden Festival are the numerous food booths. Scattered all over World Showcase, these booths offer delicious seasonal offerings from all over the world. Since we are still touring Future World, we think we are going to stop by the “Fruits by the Glass” food booth. Located at the World Showcase Plaza, this cart serves both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages with a fruit twist.
Since we are traveling with our kids and they will probably want to sample, we will opt for the Wild Berry Slush. If you look closely at the menu, you will notice the “Try it” symbol.
What this symbol means is that this choice is a part of Disney’s TRYit initiative. The goal of this program is to get kids to try new foods in a fun and interesting way. (more information on this program to follow later this week)

Our slush is the one on the left. Which did you choose? We take a sip…ahhh.. so refreshing. Now, off to sample some more tasty delights.
Also in Future World is Intermissions Café located at the Festival Center. The most interesting item on their menu is the Beet Lollipop served in a push pop! Sounds like something we must try.
(stay tuned for a bonus at home twist recipe for the Beet Lollipop later this week)
At Home Twist:
Ok, since we are really not at the festival this week, we decided to recreate one of the offerings from the food booths to make us feel like we really are there. Our choice was the same as above, the Wild Berry Slush. The hard part of this week’s recipe is that we have never tried it and have nothing but pictures to rely on. The good news is that we have nothing to compare it too so if it doesn’t come out perfectly, we’ll never know!
