I’ve been hearing rave reviews about these two sweet treats found at Epcot, and both have been compared to donuts. Since I hadn’t tried either, I decided to do so, and then compare them to each other.
The croissant doughnut can be found at Refreshment Port. It’s fried and covered in a LOT of cinnamon sugar. The inside was a bit chewier than we anticipated (I was expecting croissant-like flakiness), but this was rather pleasing. Overall, a winner.
Head over to the Norway Pavilion’s Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe to get your school bread. This kind of looks like a cream-filled, toasted-coconut-topped donut, but is a bit different. The dough is more like a sweet roll consistency than like that of a donut. The yellow cream filling has a nice, light taste than doesn’t give you that ugh-too-much-frosting feeling. Another winner.
So, which pastry was the champ? For me, it was close, but I’d be more likely to head for another school bread. Despite my frequent pestering for his vote, my husband still hasn’t decided which he prefers. 🙂
Have you tried them both? Which pastry is your pick?
