Merry Christmas 2020

Merry Christmas to near and far! I hope you all had a wonderful, festive, safe and happy Christmas. I spent my Christmas with my family, had a nice dinner and opened some presents. Then we celebrated today via Zoom with more family. Stay positive, try to stay happy and most importantly stay healthy. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!

Candy Apples Galore!

A Favorite Disney Treat!

Are those candy apples?!

What are those pictured above? Cute little ornaments maybe for a tree? Not quite. These tasty little treats are Disney’s caramel candy apples and they are to die for. These sweet treats shower Downtown Disney and Disneyland with their sugar crystals and sweet designs. Onlookers will water at the mouth as they inquire, “where did you get that?” Before visiting Disney let me tell you where you can find these adorable tasty apples and treats.

Oh my gosh they have even more?!

In fact, there are two places you can find these treats. First stop, Downtown Disney in Anaheim, California. Downtown Disney is not inside either of the parks: Disneyland or California Adventure. What this means is that it is open to the public, you don’t need a ticket to visit. In Downtown Disney there is a magical sweets shop called Marcelines Confectionery. You can watch in enjoyment as handcrafted caramel apples magically turn into an assortment of Disney characters and other delectable treats are made. There is something to try for anyone that has a sweet tooth.

This is just a sneak peak of Marcelines, there is much more to gaze in excitement in the store. These sweet treats are almost to pretty to eat you may think! Don’t be afraid to take a bite out of them, they are even more delicious than you can imagine.

Don’t fear, already in the park and see someone walking around with a giant candy apple or a brick of fudge? Second stop, Disneyland itself in Anaheim California. This second stop is not free like Marcelines Confectionery in Downtown Disney. Visiting the Candy Palace and Candy Kitchen requires an entry ticket to Disneyland theme park. That’s the only catch. In hindsight you would be able to walk around the park munching on a sweet treat and enjoy a day at Disney though. Sounds like a win to me.

The caramel apple and candy themes are constantly changing! They might be snowmen for winter, or maybe a poison apple for Halloween or perhaps Dory and Marlin from Finding Nemo. You won’t know which one will be there until you visit yourself. So while you’re wondering where to get your craving of sweets don’t forget to stop at Marcelines Confectionery in Downtown Disney or the Candy Palace and Candy Kitchen inside Disneyland. You and your sweet tooth will not be disappointed! Have fun trying out all the different types of apples and sweet treats!

Sixteen more days until Christmas! Hang your stockings, put up your tree, watch Christmas movies and listen to Holiday songs. One of my favorite song since I was a kid and will always be “The Little Drummer Boy” done by The Vienna Boys Choir. There also is the classic stop motion film The Little Drummer Boy. Enjoy the festivities, put on some music and spread the Holiday cheer!
