It is a funny thing, popcorn in Asia is big. In Singapore, for example, there are no fewer than 15 popcorn shops within a 10 block radius of my office. But that is nothing on Tokyo Disney and Tokyo DisneySea.
Seriously, popcorn at Disney is an industry. Personal souvenir buckets, check, everyone has one. Have one with Mickey? Okay how about Minnie, or Stitch, or well just about any other character for that matter. You have one, great, how about one for your Mom, Dad or Brother?
And, then there are the flavors. I mean, Caramel Corn, sure I get that. Butter, sure, Cheddar, even better. But how about Milk Tea? Well, that is just one of the many available at DisneySea. It seemed pretty odd, but well still slightly palatable.
But then there was the bizarre. Curry Popcorn anyone? How about Cranberry? Of course who could forget Black Pepper? Chocolate or Strawberry, they had those too. The freaky part? The smell. How accurate the smells of each of the flavors were when you walked past the cart.
So here is the full rundown of what flavors were available at each park:
|Tokyo Disneyland||Tokyo DisneySea|
|Butter Soy Sauce||Milk Tea|
I have to say, we did not try any of the more unusual flavors. I guess we are purists.
Or it could be that I refused after the Strawberry Churro.
Yeah, let’s not talk about that. But the drink at the Teddy Roosevelt Bar in DisneySea, that is all together a different story.
