Kill/Refurb/Marry: Epcot Food & Wine Festival Booths

This month's Kill/Refurb/Marry is HARD, guys. It's so hard I almost just skipped it. But apparently participating in this particular blog hop is like Mickey popcorn - once you start, you can't NOT keep eating going.

Armed with my festival to-eat list, I set out, an intrepid explorer extraordinaire, and determined:

Who would I kill/refurb/marry among the Epcot Food & Wine Festival Booths?

Kill: Refreshment CoolPost/Refreshment Port/Coffee Carts/Any Other Normal Part of Epcot Pretending to be Not a Normal Part of Epcot

You were already here, guys. You have limited-run menus all the time. Stop cluttering up the festival map. YOU ARE NOT SPECIAL.

Refurb: Desserts & Champagne Kiosk

A quick glance at the festival map and instantly I knew this was my refurb pick. I LOVE champagne. But seriously, I LOOOOOVE DESSERT. SUGAR. SUGAR PLEASE. ALL THE SUGAR. If you do not want your sugar, I will not berate you; I will merely relieve you of your sugar. Happy to help!

And yet...

$32 glasses of Dom Perignon? No alts less than $10? Chocolates you can buy at your local store? A single dessert trio with no option to buy individually and frankly nothing that stands out as innovative, unique, or just-plain-drool-worthy? YOU CAN'T FREEZE S'MORES, OKAY???

I want to love you, Desserts & Champagne. I do. But you need a menu overhaul.

Marry: Greece, and by "Greece" I Specifically Mean "Griddled Cheese"

I dunno. I didn't know what to put here. Lots of kiosks have things that interest me, but what with all the reviews out recently a lot of my opinions have changed. Perhaps it damages my integrity if I admit that I therefore made my decision based not upon the collective offerings of a single kiosk but rather I chose the kiosk that had the item that excites me most.

But guys, I have been dying to try the griddled Greek cheese with honey and pistachios for years. YEARS! It looks amazing, the reviews are, shockingly, all but across the board amazing, and I am SO INCREDIBLY EXCITED that I finally get to eat it.


Heck, I'm SO INCREDIBLY EXCITED that I finally get to attend Epcot's Food & Wine Festival! BEST TRIP EVER. (Until January's trip, anyway.)

  1. First of all HOW CAN YOU NOT HAVE EVER HAD THE GRIDDLED GREEK CHEESE?!?! IT'S AMAZING!!!! To save money (and room in our bellies) hubby and I would often order things and split them...not this, no way. We each get our own! BECAUSE IT"S GRIDDLED GREEK CHEESE!

    Second, Kudos on working in "The Princess Bride" reference. Best movie ever. It should be worked into everything.

  2. 60 something hours to my first Grilled Greek Cheese! Right after I scarf down every pierogi in existence. And DRINK ALL THE TEQUILA. Life on the edge girls, life on the edge.
