Over the weekend, Matt and I headed out to Epcot to check out the start of Epcot’s Flower & Garden Festival. I’m always checking out menus (I’m due for some heavy-duty menu picture trips!), and Yorkshire County Fish Shop’s in the U.K. pavilion caught my eye. No longer do they sell Shortbread; it’s been replaced by the English Bay Sugar Cookie. You can check out the menu from last July here.
Some other notable changes are that the side of chips is no longer available. [Edit: Denise at Mousesteps says that although the chips are no longer listed on the menu, than can be requested. Thanks, Denise!] The English Bay Sugar Cookie is 20 cents more than the shortbread was. Soda is up 40 cents, but beer served in a souvenir stein DROPPED 75 cents.
Matt was a bit bummed that the shortbread had been removed (but you can buy it in the shops), so we decided to give the English Bay Sugar Cookie a try. It came wrapped in paper, sealed with a Mickey sticker.
The cookie is a fair size, sprinkled with sanding sugar on top.
The cookie is very soft, buttery, and not too sweet, which we both enjoyed.
I like the change as its nice to have a (fresher) baked cookie as opposed to a prepackaged one. If you’ve had the chance to try the cookie, what did you think? Are you glad they nixed the prepackaged shortbread?
