This Disney holiday season has been killing it with the plant based treats! We heard from one of our Instagram followers about a new plant based option at the Saratoga Springs Gingerbread House Display so we hightailed it over there to check them out!
Located in the lobby of the resort there is a small gingerbread display with some unique houses created by the chefs there. On sale they have a few unique treats and Saratoga Springs holiday items. I almost got suckered into buying a Goofy Saratoga Springs pin, but I resisted.
For sale they have Plant Based Macarons! They aren’t labeled that way on the sign in front of them, but they are on the box with a full ingredient list.
I have never had a macaron before, so I really have no way to compare it to “the real thing”. I wasn’t sure what to expect, are they hard? Are they soft? It was kind of both. The cookie part of it was harder than expected, but then chewy like a soft cookie once you bite into it. The cream inside was very creamy and light.
The flavor was just a very light vanilla. The chefs were there when we went and I made sure to thank them for including a plant based/vegan option at their holiday display and they were all very grateful. Please keep surprising us with these things Disney! We’re loving it!!
