    Re: Yesterfood

    I haven't looked through the previous pages yet, but I had to post some yester-yumminess I remember...

    - the oj popsicles that were so cold your lips would freeze to them
    - the chocolate cake they had at the French Market back in the 90s

    Mmmmmm, what I wouldn't give for a chocolate-cake-wrapped-oj-popsicle right now...

    Then we got the "fritter injector" that pumped an apple custard mixture into the fritter. Made the thing 10 pounds.

    Mmmmmmmmm. Good stuff.

    Does anyone know what they did to screw up the fritters? Was this part of the "down-with-transfats" stupidity? They really aren't nearly as good, although the apple-butter seems about the same.

    To a lesser degree, the same goes for the mint juleps. They don't seem as good as they used to. Is that my imagination?

    Here's a REALLY old memory: Does anyone else recall a chicken restaurant in Frontierland (late '50's, early '60's). And, no, I'm not thinking about KBF. They had the BEST fried chicken. And I LOVED the clam chowder at Blue Bayou back in the '70's.

    AH! I loved the chocolate cake at the French Market. It was so chocolatey, and had that yummy fudge icing, with the pretty sugar confetti all along the backside of it. MMMMmmmmmmmm Gooood.

    Memories of all those early morning (7AM) shifts...and all those batches of "fritter batter" I made...Basically flour, butter, and all those eggs...I don't remember the apple custard part, though. Must have been after my time. (I left in 82)...

    I miss the orange and lemon sorbet swirl they had at Sunkist I Presume. Also the root beer floats they had in Tommorrowland back where the Space Mt. fastpass machines are now. The fried burritos at the carts back when Herdez ran the Mexican restaurant were great, too. Fantasia ice cream goes without saying. And, the hot dogs at the Mile Long bar in Bear Country.

    Re: Yesterfood

    i remember a very light angel food cake sold at the Village Hause in the Early 90s. you could have it topped with chocolate, orange or vanilla frosting. I remember 4th of July 1992... when the park stayed open until 2 or 3... and we would close the park enjoying the angel food cake in an empty village haus. Its a shame that place has gone so far down hill since then.

    I believe that you are talking about the Chicken Plantation, which was where the Haunted Mansion is now.

    At the time that whole area was still Frontierland.

    Welcome, zeldamom! I took pride in making some of that chowder, in the late 70's. Great days.

    Re: Yesterfood

    For the poster who was wondering if anyone remembered "Space Mist," yes, I do remember Space Mist. It's a vague memory because this is twenty-some-odd years ago. Basically a fruit drink, but tastes better if you drink it in a pleasing environment like the Disneyland of the 80's.

    The food I miss is probably the shishkebab at the Bengal BBQ restaurant in Adventureland. A long time back (in the 80's), they had these beef shishkebabs that were very heavily spiced with black pepper and probably a few other things. They were hot, and the feeling would stay with you for quite a while! This seemed to fit thematically with the idea of Adventureland being a place where one could expect to experience unusual and startling things...

    In the late 90's, I went there to get one of these, and sadly, the recipe had been changed and the spiciness was reduced to almost nothing--very probably because that level of spice was just too much for the average parkgoer.

    The first time we went to Disneyland, we ate breakfast at the Aunt Jemima Pancake House. That disappeared fairly soon after.

    I still think about the tamales at Casa de Fritos. They were sooo yummy to me!

    During high school when we would spring for a Blue Bayou meal, I would alternate between the Monte Cristo and a chicken dish they had..chicken chasseur, I think it was. Continental!

    Thumbs up Re: Yesterfood

    Carnation Ice Cream was my Favorite! Still have not found a comparable ice cream to this day! Maybe, it's the memory. Also, the candy store in the castle was my fav stop as well. I was fond of old fashioned cinnamon hard candy sticks.

    Re: Yesterfood

    There were two "food related" things I did in the old days of DL:

    1. Get a twinky and milk under the peoplemover
    2. Get a meatball sandwich in the pirate ship in Fantasyland, then go in the back grotto to eat it. Wonderful atmosphere. Really miss that place.
