When I spotted this cupcake this weekend at Capt. Cook’s at the Polynesian resort, I knew it was something I had to try: a Chocolate Beer Cupcake!
The cupcake is topped with chocolate covered pretzels, which Matt and I tried after I bought it. They tasted a bit stale too me, and slightly chewy, but that was possibly due to them sitting in frosting and taking on some of the moisture.
I brought the cupcake home and set it in the fridge so the frosting could firm up a bit. It had a slight beer taste to it, but otherwise wasn’t too interesting. The cake portion tasted like plain chocolate cake, and somewhat bland at that.
It’s certainly an interesting cupcake concept, but it wasn’t the best I’ve tried on property. They also were serving a PB&J variety which sounds like it would probably taste better. I didn’t see any Lemon Ginger Cupcakes, but the Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cupcake was still available if you need a cupcake fix.
If you’ve tried the Choc0late Beer Cupcake, let us know what you thought!
